Sightings of ghosts have plummeted in number over the past decade. Are mobile phones responsible for their demise? It may seem crazy but paranormal investigators are starting to take the idea seriously.

"Until a few years ago we'd receive reports of two new ghosts every week," says Tony Cornell, a scientific investigator for the Society For Psychical Research.

"Now we're receiving none. Not a dickie bird. The decline exactly mirrors the increasing use of mobile phones."

Some scientists believe that ghostly apparitions may be caused by unusual electrical activity. Mobile phones are known to produce intense electromagnetic fields and microwave radiation. Tony Cornell believes that, in principle at least, the increasing use of mobile phones could be "drowning out" ghosts and other types of paranormal activity.

He says that sightings of ghosts have remained fairly constant for centuries. They began to decline fifteen years ago, just as mobile phones were introduced into the UK. Ghosts then went into a long slow decline until ten years ago, when the number of reports plummeted, just as mobile phone use rocketed across the world.

The pattern seems to be mirrored in other countries. American researchers have begun travelling to Britain to investigate ghosts, only to face an even greater scarcity.

"We've found it very embarrassing," said Tony Cornell. "They've spent a fortune on scientific equipment and meticulously planned their expeditions to Britain. When they get here, we have to tell them that yet again, we have no ghosts.

A spokesman for Virgin Mobile denied any involvement in the "ghostly cleansing" of Britain.

"If people feel less frightened of ghosts when they carry a mobile phone then we'd be delighted if they bought a Virgin one," said a spokesman.

"If this research is true, then clearly the Ghost-Busters would have been better off carrying a mobile phone rather than lugging around one of those huge backpacks."

Although paranormal investigators are keen to stress that

I've always said that mobile phones were wrong .. wrong I tell ya!!

However, I suppose there could be something in it ... if a phone is drowning a location in such things as EMFs then whats coming out of the phone might be far stronger than whatever energy a ghost is producing ..

Ban mobile phones now!! Respect the rights of ghosts!!

You would think that in some respects that having an increased and readily availible energy source such as mobiles would help them in some way. I would be interested to see if the incidence of objects being moved as also decreased in the same way. Not just apparitions

I also would have thought that any increase in 'energy' in the environment would have a positive effect rather than a negative one. Ghost seem to like 'talking' in the digital recorders etc. Just goes to show what I know.

It may be a case of crowded air space, conflicting energies or one canceling out the other. Perhaps the energies are not compatible and mobiles diminish the spirit energy as opposed to boost it as some people are suggesting. Who knows.

Next invest - all mobiles switched off!

I always try to insist mobiles are switched of anyway, there's nothing worse than sitting in the dark contemplating the ether, when suddenly the dukes of hazard are ringing out loud :roll:

I use mine on silent as a light at times instead of a torch cos its much softer and smaller....a few times the settings have been changed on it when I've been using it like this on invos...and then reset themselves.....no way I could have done it either....
also one one invo 4 mobis that were def switched off suddenly came on...and at the same place 1 that was on silent started ringing..even whilst still set on silent,which it had never done before....

Got no prob not using it as a light tho!
Maybe could use one to do some kind of experiment........(details of which are top secret tho heheheheheh!!!!!)

we normally prefer all mobile phones off, because there is the odd person who will get a text or call (even when on silent) in the middle of invest and it could and would affect the emf reader

awww thankyou or where you talking the mickey??? :mrgreen:

Anyhoo, to be honest im not sure taking photos with mobile phones really does any good.
Most of the time you get pixels in them when you look at the screen after taking them and therefore you could see any amount of anomilies.
And also once again you have the orb/flash thing to contend with.
