User Story: Easy to interpret, difficult to prevent
As a previous user of Ghost Radar, I’d had very limited experiences with it. The majority of the output was seemingly random, and the few words which could be connected to events or incidents (due to their infrequent nature) could easily be classed as coincidental.
However, things took a dramatic change when I installed Ghost Radar: Connect. During the first run, I left GR on overnight while I slept. I turned off wifi, data and GPS connections, to ensure there would be no fraudulent or “interpreted” words, and no chances of GR picking up my location via GPS. During an 8-hour period, activity was beyond minimal. In fact, the only word GR produced was “army”. I live next to an Army training camp, and the majority of my neighbours work for the army.
Things became more interesting the following evening. Ghost Radar produced the sequential words “I’m”, “rather” and “pleasant”, followed by the name “Jess”. This was followed soon after by the sequential words “slow”, “labour” and then “Uncle”. My girlfriend’s Uncle died of a heart attack quite recently, and his step-daughter was called Jess. She’s currently pregnant, and was due to give birth the following day. Was this a message to confirm he was OK, and a pre-warning of a difficult birth? GR then gave the name “Beth”. We checked Facebook, and the first comment on Jess’ post regarding the impending due date was from her friend “Beth”. Seemingly too much information to be coincidental.
I’ve read plenty of warnings about ouija boards and apps such as Ghost Radar, but have never experienced anything to cause me concern – until now. GR didn’t say anything else for around an hour. We decided to go to bed, and no sooner had I said “let’s go to bed”, GR said “Incubus”. For those who aren’t aware (from Wikipedia): an incubus (nominal form constructed from the Latin verb, incubo, incubare, or “to lie upon”) is a demon in male form who, according to a number of mythological and legendary traditions, lies upon sleepers, especially women, in order to have sexual intercourse with them. Thankfully my girlfriend wasn’t aware of this last output, and GR was promptly turned off.
Within a 30-minute period whilst it was turned on the following morning (as if it were continuing on with passing the message from my girlfriend’s uncle) Ghost Radar produced the words “funeral”, “afterlife” and “rapture”. When it was turned on again a few hours later (during a drive home) it produced the words “God”, “cry” and “David”. Believe it or not, David is the name of my girlfriend’s uncle. As we neared home, it produced the name “Roger”. Roger is the name of our next-door neighbour.
This morning, my girlfriend was due to travel to a nearby university where she had not been before, and had spent the evening beforehand planning the route. As soon as had Ghost Radar been turned on, it produced the words “university” and “lost”.
Although the large bulk of these words have been produced as stated above, there have been a few odd, random or sporadic interruptions with other words which seem to make little or no sense. However, the majority of the words produced suggest to me that even if Ghost Radar was programmed or intended as a joke or prank, there may well be some alternative forms of consciousness or being which can manipulate the output to their own desires. I have attached a screenshot showing proof of the above. Use this application with caution would be my advice.
