Ghost Hunters

I was watching Ghost Hunters on the SciFi channel the other day (I do like the show)and I thought to myself……

Why do they hunt ghosts only at night?

I mean think about it. Do ghosts only come out at night? If they hunted during the day, they would be able to use better cameras without night vision assistance. Perhaps if they did hunt during the day they would get better results.

But then again, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the moment. Perhaps you are in a dark corridor of an old prison. Shadows play tricks on our eyes accustomed to day vision. Perhaps thoughts of things that go bump in the night play off of our good intentions. After all, we as a species are not nocturnal. So hunting at night lends to the anticipation of the hunt, and perhaps to ones imagination.

Sounds amplify in ones head when in the dark. A rat or mouse knocking down a cup during the day takes on the forbidding sounds of something more sinister when in pitch dark.

And why do they whisper at times? When looking for EVPs the team clearly and loudly asks questions, but when searching, they often whisper? What’s it going to be, you can’t have it both ways. Does noise scare ghosts away and if so, they why speak loudly when trying to capture EVPs?

So many questions, so little time……
