.Well...where would the paranormal be; if it was not for the demons and gremlins that take away the 'layer from the cake'?..We have a depth of paraphanalia, ranging from spiritual awareness, angelic comminion to visitations from advanced beings, but instead go around chasing demented souls for a 'thrill of a life time'..It would sadden a lot of people to realise that the paranormal is nothing more than a whole universe of superior life, that reigns pity on the human race for it's belief in it's own superior esteem...Instead, we have a fascinating subject that no properly qualified interlect will take on; in fear of redicule!..Science will simply not risk it's reputation on a load of old crank ideas; to validate a subject that has no virtual existance in the physical world!..Instead we have a 'two a penny' association who has little to lose apart from the respect that it never really had in the first palce!..So instead of promoting the REAL ESSENSE of paranormal it goes around chasing demons to give people a few thrills, so that they may gain a bit of interest and save a bit of money on fairground rides!..Take aaway the thrill aspect, and you have a dead subject, with little interest other than what is going to interfere with THEIR religion?..Seriousness, means religion. Touch upon religion and you have a human race interference of peoples right of belief...If that don't scare you, then it is hardly suprising that science is looking upon the whole subject with scorn?..So we have 'two bit' tinkerers including myself who can see and measure the obvious; except who really counts!..The sadnees is; that there are little thrills except the 'wake up' that shakes the so called 'normal' person into real space reality...People don't want to wake up, but instead dream on, about demons, bad aliens and all the crap that lies uder the buckets...Instead we have the science fiction films that addresses the so called new reseraches into more demons and fairy tales that go back to Victorian times!..People come face to face with themselves, and don't really like what confronts them. They see their own demons, created by own self pity, greed and frustration and feel threatened. The paranormal world is like a mirror. The first thing that stares back at you, is your self. If that ain't enough to shock you; then you may even look behind your image and see what is really going on?..To most; vanity remains at the doorstep...and that cannot be them, so they fear what the do not understand...To understand oneself, is a gift..For doing so; is to undestand others, which is why you all fail!..Failure, is not at all bad, providing we can learn by it?..georgek
Here it is people my long rant of "Paranormal State" oh where to start where to start?.I know lets start with the leader of the group Ryan Buell. In one of the on demand special that introduces the group members Ryan Buell states he is a expert in the field of paranormal research. This is not true he is no expert in the field. What he is is a "Self proclaimed expert" in the paranormal. To be a expert in a field you first need to have special skill or knowledge and authority in some particular field NEW innovative findings or have substantial influence on the field. This kid has not done any thing new or innovative. I have read I crap load of book's on the paranormal and been in a quit a few paranormal research groups as well as fallowed other paranormal researchers and their log journals parers etc... and I would not call my self a "expert" but if knowledge is all you need to be a expert well then every person on this web site or that has watched one tv show on the paranormal is a expert! I would only say i have a good knowledge base in the paranormal . ..And I'm going to now use all of my talents to rip this show a new one! Ok Ryan stop with all the "ooooo the devil is fallowing me" crap. I love how he never says the name but coincidently a psychic writes it down on a piece of paper and wow it's the same OMG! I don't think so dude If a demon had beef with you, you wouldn't be able to get out of bed in the morning. And a demon would never I mean NEVER tell you his name if you have ever done a little bit of reading you would know that if you know the demon's name you can control the demon. Or get rid of him. Man Ryan I think you like drama more then you like sex or breathing. Also They have a occult member performing rituals in the show. wow how unscientific is that. magic is a unproven practice in the world of science and if you are going to be a paranormal researchers you really need to be scientific. That is what the field is all about. the point is to validate the evidence gathered to further the legitimacy of the paranormal field. You know out of fantasy in to reality...I must say I do like watching the show it's just so BAD like a Troma film. Its like watching a donkey show it so horrible you can't take your eye's off it (I would like to thank Kevin smith for that analogue!) the only show it's really competing with is Most haunted for the most fictional reality based paranormal research show. There is on debunking in the show they don't even try to debunk any thing! Oh I love their equipment oooo Fancie stuff I really like the Walmart special motion detectors and how Ryan says "we calibrated them" lol you can't calibrated them. lol By calibrated he mean positioning them. Give me a brake I dont think this show is going to last to long at all. It's a "slap in the face" to real paranormal researchers. If any of you are really interested in a good paranormal researchers show and most of you know ghost hunters on Scifi is a much better show. I must say I did like the first episode of Paranormal State it lead me to believe the show was going to be good. They did good research in proving the little kid was seeing dead people. Sad to say that was all the good research they had done so far...And what is with the Directors log! MORE DRAMA!!!! I think the14u2cee said it best "Directors log, date unknown: The Demon is again following me, today we have George Bush and Osama bin Laden looking for EVP"s at the White House with special guest Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton investigating the white man....". its like a bad Star trak rip off. And what is with Kelly dating Dillon ops! Wrong show with all the drama I get them a little mixed up. If I had more time I would love to stay up and rail on the show longer but it is late now. So my final thought is with shows like that on the air it only hurts the validity of the paranormal research field. If people just go around believing any old thing the field will aways have shadow's of doubt's on it and will never be taken serious. ..I'm The spectacular Fred man and that is my opinion..
