As I was going over what I was going to use as this week’s evidence, I caught myself thinking, It’s just another EVP.
Then I thought about it. As if an EVP isn’t an interesting piece of evidence. Especially one where you can clearly make out what is being said.
Are EVPs evidence of haunting? That is something that is still debatable. In many, many cases it is possible to find logical explanations for the anomaly. It could be the whisper of clothing. Or the scuffing of a foot. Traffic passing by. A bird singing. Random radio waves. There are all sorts of explanations, and I’m certain that there are for this EVP, as well.
This EVP was captured outdoors. I would tell you that I was in my favorite haunted location in the world, Wellington, but if you know my work you are probably well aware of that. There were three of us present, and no one else. No one was in the area. It was quiet and peaceful. There was no electricity within a few miles. We were not wearing walkie talkies or radios. Our cell phones had no reception. Day was approaching twilight and there was a slight breeze blowing. A stream gurgled nearby. I was the only person with a high pitched voice. The other two people there were my husband, who most definitely doesn’t sound like a girl or a child, and my 13 year old son, whose voice has rounded the bend of puberty and now matches the depth of his father’s voice.
I am the first voice you will hear. I believe I ask something like, “Can I have a peach?”
I was speaking to my husband, Jim. He wordlessly handed me one. As he did, on the recording you will hear the other high pitched voice (a child’s voice?) that is not mine pipe in. It seemed to be responding to either my question about the peach or the peach itself. You decide:
When you take away a number of the logical explanations that don’t fly because of the environmental circumstances at the moment – random cell phone reception, other people we didn’t notice speaking at the time, electricity – and you add it to the fact that the voice seems to respond to the situation at hand, do “logical” explanations fly out the window?
What do you think? Is there an explanation for this? I’m looking forward to your replies!
