Science pages

We have several pages on science and its application to paranormal research.

If you need an incentive to do your own research, read this.

Paranormal photos pages

Start here (including photo analysis service). There are a number of pages dedicated to this popular subject.


Research is orientated towards answering specific questions about anomalous phenomena (rather than investigating spontaneous cases). For instance, does anything leave the body of people experiencing OOBEs; are haunted locations magnetically remarkable; are orbs really out-of-focus dust?

The research department is run by the National Research Co-ordinator with the help of a research committee.

The new paranormal research
