sglanz Posted October 10, 2021 Share Posted October 10, 2021 (edited) I have a friend in Texas who owns two haunted locations frequented by ghost hunters. The ghost hunter community is different than the ITC community, but there is some overlap. So here is my question. As developers and experimenters of ITC technology, would it be beneficial for us to make on-site field trips to haunted places? To answer my own question, here is an analogy. When biological researchers seek to understand a disease, they sometimes seek out the most extreme manifestations in the form of rare diseases, where symptoms are most severe. The markers for these rare diseases are easier to research. After solving the problem by studying rare diseases, they can apply these solutions to more generic diseases. Rare diseases are a way to isolate certain factors. Similarly, it might be beneficial to test out ITC prototypes in an environment where phenomena are known to easily manifest. Experiments are easier to run, results easier to analyze because there is more volume of data. If so, maybe we can arrange some field trips. If anyone else would like to comment, I welcome your thoughts. And if you are a serious ITC researcher/developer who has pursued this, please share your stories.
