Are Orbs Todays Cheesecloth
In the early to mid parts of the 20th century spiritualists would try to convince people that the cheesecloth they were pulling from their mouths etc was really ectoplasm and con their audiences into believing they were watching a spirit manifest before them. Today popular television programmes and certain individuals try to convince people that dust caught on digital cameras is really the first signs of a manifestation. Why? I think the answer lies in the fact that people need something visual to believe in the paranormal and orbs are something the popular media can take advantage of and even create on demand if need be. The first orbs I came across were probably 7 or 8 years ago and it was a televison producer at a haunted location who brought them to my attention.
