Patrick Doyle and Kristen Lumen, the paranormal investigation team of “Ghost Mine”, decided to try something new this week. In this week’s episode, which aired on October 23, the team set up a Tesla coil to force any paranormal entities to manifest themselves.
A Tesla coil uses a 120v electric source to produce arcs of electricity that may reach 1,000,000 volts. The electricity is discharged into the air creating a high-energy field of electricity, which is just what Kristen and Patrick wanted. Because it is believed that paranormal entities need energy to manifest themselves, the team theorized that flooding the Crescent Mine with electrical charges would give the entities in the mine the energy they need to show themselves.
Several cameras were set up to monitor paranormal activity in the mine while the Telsa coil was engaged. Almost immediately, Kristen spotted a dark mass that moved from camera to camera. The team disengaged the Telsa coil and headed inside to investigate.
Although they heard noises, the team did not detect EVPs and did not encounter any apparitions when investigating the mine.
Whether the Tesla coil will prove to be an effective tool in paranormal investigations is not clear. If the images Patrick and Kristen observed represent paranormal entities, viewers are likely to see more of the Telsa coil as a tool in paranormal investigations in the future.
