OSFest Fan Groups - part 2

Nevermore Paranormal Research and Investigations

Interested in things that go bump in the night? I mean on purpose, not because you kicked over your nightstand again. There is a group of researchers here in Omaha looking into ghostly apparitions and manifestations with the goal of documenting, communicating and explaining what is going on. And they are coming to OSFest to talk about what they do.

Nevermore Paranormal Research and Investigations is a Non-Profit Corporation based in Omaha, Nebraska. While its members all share and enjoy an interest in all aspects of the paranormal we specialize in the area of the supernatural; specifically ghost hunting. They use a mix of traditional and modern methods while investigating paranormal phenomena. As any good research group, they are continuing to experiment and pioneer new methods and techniques based on the evidence they gather and the theories they develop.

They will present a panel called “Ghosthunting 101”, in which they will:
--- 1) Provide a brief foundation and context to help understand and appreciate the field of the supernatural, including concepts of the soul, consciousness, personality, sentience, and the metaphysical constructs that make up the theory of what a ghost is.
--- 2) Discuss the misconception that it is the job of “Science” to disprove the existence of ghosts and why it’s really the job of the Paranormal Investigator to prove that they exist.
--- 3) Explain the terminology of ghosts and the nomenclature of the paranormal field, including orbs, vortexes, and various manifestations.
--- 4) Give a brief explanation of the various tools used in ghosthunting and the theories behind using them or document or communicate with the dead.

Join the Nevermore Paranormal Investigations Team and other researchers, writers, artists, and fans at The Omaha Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival, July 11-13th, 2008 at the Comfort Inn & Suites at 7007 Grover Street Omaha, NE. 3-day memberships are available on line or by mail, with the form available on our website. I hope to see you there.
