You can image the first humans hearing noises in the back of their caves and seeing shadows beyond the flickering firelight. Ghost hunting most likely started with a torch. This notion did not pass like so many myths and legends. It is said that hundreds came from around the world to rural Tennessee to behold the manifestation of the "Bell Witch" poltergeist. In 1948 the Philosophical Library published a book called The Diary and Sundry Observations of Thomas Alva Edison, which is a collection of Edison's writings. Much of the book is about Edison's attempts to communicate with the dead. The ghost hunter is hurled into the modern age with these experiments. Today we launch into the dark with full spectrum, IR, and heat seeking cameras. The torch is different, but the fascination is unchanged. Just like those first humans, our ears still hear the voices of those who have passed and we believe we should listen. So hold your torch tightly and the spirits like so many moths may just pay you a visit. MJB
