W is for Window and White Noise

Window: A window area is a region with an unusually high number of paranormal/UFO reports over a significant period of time. Area 51, The Bermuda Triangle, Any corn field in Iowa. The creepy old house or cemetery at the edge of town. That place you always leave your car keys but the turn up hopelessly lost. 

Area 51. This Is As Far As You Go.
If you listen to certain groups, or simply make a few connections yourself, it seems there are places on this Earth where strange things happen in high frequency. These can be actual physical locations where planes and ships mysteriously disappear without a trace. The Bermuda Triangle is popular, but the truth is there are far more dangerous shipping lanes across the globe where strange things happen to aircraft and ships. 

White Noise: A repetitive sound (usually static) used in an attempt to hear spirits. There are tools and electronics paranormal investigators use to record white noise. Related to this topic is EVP, or “Electronic Voice Phenomenon,” This is the process of capturing messages from the spirit world, including our loved ones in Heaven. 

White Noise the Movie (2005): Starring Michael Keaton. An architect's desire to speak with his wife from beyond the grave, becomes an obsession with supernatural repercussions.


Honorable Mention: Warp, Werewolf, Wicca, Witch, Wraith 

Tomorrow: X is for Xenoglossy 

Question: Do you believe there are areas where condensed paranormal or supernatural activity occurs such as the Bermuda Triangle? Can we communicate with the dead? I think T-Mobile now has a service for that.

  2. Hi Stephen - I'm not at all sure it's paranormal or supernatural ... the earth and its surrounds is full of 'fields' ... so there's some explanation - which we may not understand. The only white sound I know was used in an enormous office building, with open plan spaces ... to help block noise carrying and keep a degree of quiet - it did work.

    Cheers Hilary

    1. Hilary, good point about the fields. And there is a giant hole forming in one particular field called The South Atlantic Anomaly that can have a negative effect on passing spacecraft and satellites..

  3. I had no idea window could refer to this too. Cool.

  4. Any corn field in Iowa - that made me laugh!

  5. There's apparently a triangle over the great lakes too.

  6. I would love to watch White Noise, but can I handle it without nightmares entering my slumbering hours? :)

  7. I can't help but find white noise a little unnerving. Too many horror movies.

    Good luck with the A to Z Challenge!

  8. I used to be fascinated by strange disappearances. I had a book of paranormal phenomena that I read constantly as a child - some of the stories, I remember to this day, and would love to write some novels about them.

  9. I've always been fascinated by The Bermuda Triangle. There's a really good movie of that name with Catherine Bell. If you haven't seen it you should. :) White Noise was a good but creepy movie.

  10. A very good read... and great post , good Sir....
    We will do No "EVP" recordings in my home... seeing the thing and its actions is bad enough.... could not handle hearing it as well....

  11. I didn't know "window" was a non-technical term used technically for a high paranormal activity area, Interesting.

  12. I think this is a fascinating subject and yes, there are places like that.

  13. I don't believe in those areas but they do make for good legends and stories.

  14. Having grown up in Florida, I've always had the BT in the background, but you mentioning other shipping lanes, etc. is intriguing to me. I'd like to know more. Has someone written a book about them? Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

  15. Inexplicable things are the most interesting ones ;-)

    I have no clue what "Xenoglossy" is - so I'll have to come back tomorrow!

  16. There are weird occurrences that do go on, but I don't believe you can speak to the dead. I just think the idea is good for writing novels and screenplays. Interesting to think about, though.

  17. I love Michael Keaton and hadn't heard of that one. I'll check it out. And...I believe we can receive messages/help from the dead, but it's not exactly like speaking to them. I had a relative who "bugged" me from beyond the grave and helped me to find her in genealogical records until I was finally able to identify her and put her with her real family.

  18. The bermuda triangle is fascinating. Perhaps the sea or some other powerful unknown opens up and swallows the ship or plane. It could be like a portal to another world!

  19. I don't think we can communicate with the dead, although there was the time Saul conjured up Samuel witih the use of a psychic, but I'm thinking not these days. I wonder about the Bermuda triangle, it certainly is interesting with planes and ships disappearing around it, so but who really knows?

  20. There have certainly been some very odd occurrences in places like the Bermuda Triangle. Have a book about it all somewhere.

  21. I still don't understand white noise. Its still loud when I need silence.

  22. I love to watch the shows about these places, especially the Bermuda Triangle, but I don't know if I believe in them.

  23. I think the earth has magnetic fields which scientists just haven't figured out yet which may account for some of the issues. As for talking to the dead....Most I think have a keen sense of "reading" people. This just takes knowing the non verbal cues people give out every moment. There are a few though that I have seen on TV that I can not figure out like This one man with the first name of John(can't remember his last name). He freaks me out when he speaks. he mentions that he can be wrong and just relays info as he sees it. So I don't rule this out

  24. I am so glad to've clicked on. What a wonderous blog. Milo and I are going to have a magical mystery tour adventuring through together. :-)
    Happy happy. Joy joy.

  25. I think there probably are places that encourage more supernatural activity because environmental factors change and I'm pretty sure supernatural and paranormal things are simply science we don't understand yet. I also suspect we can communicate with the departed, but at to how and why ... not sure.

  26. I don't know the validity of the Bermuda Triangle mystery but I know one thing: I wouldn't go on a plane or a cruise ship whose path includes the Bermuda Triangle! It's fascinating to me and I'd like to read more about those windows...
