Ghosts at the Pump House
On Saturday, March 6 between 10:30 a.m. and noon, paranormal investigator Robert Bess and his team from the Foundation for Paranormal Research will use their ghost-catching machine, the Parabot, to capture and contain ghosts at the Byrd Park Pump House.
The Pump House, which is said to be one of the most haunted places on the East Coast, is located just north of the Boulevard Bridge.
It is free and open to the public, and cameras are allowed. However, Bess asks that viewers keep a safe distance and not go beyond the boundaries for their own safety. He also advises that this event is not appropriate for children or the faint of heart.
Bess plans to explain exactly how the Parabot works and the experiment itself. He’ll be demonstrating how to capture and contain ghosts and explaining the technology behind it.
Bess says people at the event will actually be able to see what is really happening in fully lit environments and will have the opportunity to see a ghost for themselves.
“We’re going to show exactly what the Parabot can do and people are going to be surprised by what a ghost actually looks like.” he said.
From the Foundation for Paranormal Research:
On March 6, 2010 the Foundation for Paranormal Research will be demonstrating cutting edge technology involving paranormalcapture and containment of "ghosts" or foreign entity's within ourpersonal world. This event is called The 3 Mile Lock Experiment - Conquest. The foundation’s founder Robert Bess, along with his technical containment team, will demonstrate the real existence of ghosts and other worldly entities by actual capture and containment of real ghosts using the foundation’s inventions and techniques. An explanation of the equipment, the theories, and practical applications etc. will be given before the event. The environment will be fully lit and fully visible. This is a rare opportunity for skeptics and non-committed believers, etc.
An added attraction will be the "Parabot," as seen on Ghost Adventures Live, the 7-hour lockdown at Trans-Alleghany Lunatic Asylum in Weston, West Virginia shown on The Travel Channel. Parabot will be capturing and containing ghosts and showing off its abilities. The foundation will also be demonstrating how its latest invention, "The Tesla Tower," works. There will be two fully active Tesla coils firing during the demonstration. The coils will be producing over .2.6 million volts of raw uncontrolled energy - wild and attractive arcsfrom the coils.
The public is most welcome to attend and bring cameras and video recorders. The foundation rarely puts on demonstrations of this nature exposing some of its inventions. The purpose of the event is to truly open the public’s eyes to the real world that we share with the dead and the effects on our daily lives.
A notice of WARNING: this isn't something young children should attend due to the nature of what is going to be demonstrated - apparitions of the dead, some harmless, some hostile and not very pleasant to view. Anyone with a heart condition or who is easily distressed also should not attend.
Last but not least, there will be an announcement by the founder referencing to his personal involvement with the paranormal - a kept secret that NO ONE has known about him - a sworn secret that he now has been given permission to be announced to the world.
