Silly EVP

On December 22, 2011, at 3:23AM, I recorded this EVP of a female voice saying, "silly". This voice is nothing like my wife's voice. I believe it was in response to my static field detector and other efforts to capture evidence on my 3AM visitations. When I began using the static field detector, it went off 3 times on 3 different nights, each during the 3AM hour 9and at no other times); then after this 'silly' EVP, it has not gone off again in several months. I think the spirit is avoiding the detector; but it certainly sounds benevolent. This leads me to believe that any technique will only work in a specific geography once or twice; after that the 'prey' (spirits, etc.) becomes wise to it and try to avoid detection. If more evidence is to be gathered; the element of surprise and a variety of methods is essential.

I had been intrigued with an IR analog distance sensor I saw in the Pololu catalog, so I thought I'd try it out as sort of an IR RADAR gun to permit me to walk around in the dark without running into things. It could also allow me to sit stationary and detect anything approaching my position. The PICAXE BASIC code simply produces a tone of increasing frequency as an object approaches. It works best if pointed slightly downward to an imaginary spot about 7 feet in front of you on the floor (the detection range is 5 feet). I can walk down a dark hallway swinging it from left to right and avoid the walls. This same sensor would work well as a stationary motion detector, like a pyro sensor.
