Another week in lockdown here in the UK and another week full of online paranormal content for us all to consume. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have.
As each week goes by I often find myself stumbling across various news, social media posts, blogs, articles, books, and more in relation to the paranormal. Often some of these pass me by never to be seen again, which can be a shame as when I see them I know that I want to read more on them. However, it can often be the wrong time, there are other more pressing things to take care of. As we are often bombarded by lots of this such information on a daily basis, a lot is lost in the digital ether.
So, what I wanted to do with this regular post is attempt to gather some various pieces of information that others like me may be interested to read. I’ve broken this down into a few categories below for now, hopefully you’ll like it – would love to hear your thoughts on the matter?
lockdown ghosts and ufo sightings

- A good example of the human brain using prior knowledge & mental models to fill in gaps of a low-res, noisy sensory input. This works well most times, but can fail on occasion. Useful to think about for AI development and for spread of misinformation on the internet. https://twitter.com/lexfridman/status/1261765782507118592?s=12

I often spend a lot of my time reading paranormal related blogs, books and articles. So, I figured this would be great to share with you all too. Blogs and online articles are often a great way to discover more on the paranormal and even challenge your own perception of some concepts. There will also likely be items from published journals and magazines too in the future – which of course will be limited to those with memberships to those organisations.
This week I would like to shout out to Sarah Chumacero for continuing to provide a huge amount of content out there, all of which is well worth you reading along with her books too.
I would also like to welcome Amanda of Haunted Old and Beautiful, I stumbled on her blog this week too and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Although generally the idea of this post was to share some of what catches my eye in the paranormal field week to week. I thought it would be good to capture some of this stuff in one place. Makes it easier to find right?
However, there’s always going to be stuff I miss, so please feel free to send me items and I may include them too. It’s a good way to share a lot of what’s happening out there in the paranormal world.
