New message

Hello there, Stephen here, just pointing out that we had another message added to the site last night, added under my name, but, again, not by me, although, as before, I had left my computer over night switched on and logged into the website in my name.

In fact, this time, both Gary and Jo are reasonably convinced that there wasn’t any outside influence on the computer or the site, so quite where it might have come from has become a little more mysterious.

Once again the text seems to have been taken from Ranulph Williams’ introduction, although again there is text I don’t recognise, and I find myself wondering about that original draft of the introduction that I was talking about yesterday and whether some of the text might come from that.

Now that I am, at least, pretty convinced that the messages aren’t coming from anywhere else, I am going to start trying to analyse them in detail to see what I can discover. It could well be that the most interesting events of this whole investigation have been happening right here on the website, right in front of us all this time.

Strange events

Hello, Stephen here, with what I think may be my first truly paranormal experience in the house. I was working upstairs in the house this afternoon – exploring some of the rooms at the rear – when I could have sworn I heard footsteps in the hall downstairs. I immediately went to the head of the back stairs to start down to investigate and the immediate sense that was a presence in the hallway downstairs – there was a definite impression of movement – a shadow, I think, or some movement – but by the time I got downstairs the hallway was empty and the house quiet. I have often, over the last few days, had the impression that I was not alone in the house but had put this down to having been on my own for the past week, but perhaps I am not as alone as I thought. It’s certainly an intriguing event.

The investigation: EMF detectors

The aim is to investigate the accounts of paranormal activity in The Maze House. Given the absence of the homeowners the investigators have an unparalleled opportunity to conduct a long and thorough examination of the house.

In addition to a simple investigation of the house by the team, the project will have a more technical aspect. As part of an attempt to examine in depth the physical attributes of a paranormal manifestation the team have positioned throughout the house a number of electromagnetic field monitors.

According to ghost hunters paranormal events are associated with field fluctuations between 2 and 7 milligauss in strength. The monitors will be put into position over the next few weeks and then will be in operation continuously – logging data for every second of the day.

It is hoped that analysis of the data will eventually enable the team to build a complete picture of electromagnetic fields throughout the house and then compare these to any observed paranormal phenomena for any correlation between the two.

The team will also be using the EMF monitors as ‘detectors’ – looking for any significant reading and examining those areas that give them for ‘paranormal’ activity or states.
