Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The study of electromagnetism is widely known in paranormal research, we regularly study and survey electromagnetic fluctuations to identify them as an indicator of paranormally sourced energy impacts on our environment. The electromagnetic spectrum is a prime focus of this research due to its tremendous size and intricacy. What is electromagnetism?

    • A.

      It is what happens when electricty travels through the air.

    • B.

      It is the force that causes the interaction between electrically charged particles.

    • C.

      It is the energy produced by spirits or entities.

    • D.

      It is the interaction of positive and negatively charged Ions.

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. It is the force that causes the interaction between electrically charged particles.
    Explanation
    Why is this relevant? Electromagnetism is one of the four fundamental interactions of nature. In paranormal research, we measure these interactions to discover unusual disturbances in the Electromagnetic field. Knowing what you're measuring makes for better science.
