Phantimals paranormal beasts
We haven’t had a paranormal video in a while so when I found this crossover topic I jumped on it. This theory spans the gaps between specters, spirits, and ghouls along with mysterious creatures and cryptids.
It is an idea that could explain some of the strange phenomena that often occurs when an animal from cryptozoology is spotted.
I am talking about
The ghost of an animal. The word Combining phantom and animal, to give a name to these paranormal beasts
The idea of creatures being able to haunt the living has been long established with paranormal sightings of black dogs and phantom horses. The variety of animals that have been seen range from the small to the big and from the wild to everyday pets.
A man who has written much on the topic is JOSHUA p WARREN, over eight books he has documented the subject extensively. He tells of how he and a team of researchers visited a South Carolina farm that was overrun with the spirits of deceased animals.
His hypotheses is that the location was home to some sort of gateway or portal to another realm and that the spirit of the animals which died on the farm come and go through this bridge between dimensions.
The idea of ghostly creatures also became more personal for the man when his pet dog passed away, Joshua says that for a week after the dog’s death it could be heard whimpering around the house.
This event inspired the writer to turn scientist and he set up a wide range of equipment to monitor the house, he said that he was able to detect a number of objective anomalies proving that his perception of ghost was not purely a subjective experience.
So there is an established idea that animals can come back and haunt the living but so far it has been pets and farm animals so how does his link with cryptids and cryptozoology?
One globally recognized creature of legend is Nessie, the lake monster of the Scottish highlands has been featured here on the channel in a couple of videos and she once again pops up for this subject.
Just as in real life the animal seems to appear and disappear and will and at random times, why could this be?
One idea is that Nessie is an apparition.
It has long been said that the loch ness monster is some kind of plesiosaur, something which science says is impossible. The conditions of the lake do not offer an environment that is suitable for such a large aquatic dinosaur, never mind the fact that the last living plesiosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago.
One possible answer to the lake monster both being seen and being able to live in such a place is that she is in fact a ghost a phantimal. The spirit of a long dead dinosaur haunting the lake.
This claim may not be as wild as it first seems. Some have made the claim that there evidence to prove this theory.
Jim Marrs the famous researcher and author on all things paranormal said in his book PSI spies that some of the U.S. government's experiments with remote viewing that the remote viewers were ordered to focus on Nessie and detail what they saw:
Several sessions targeting the famous Loch Ness monster revealed physical traces of the beast – a wake in the water, movement of a large body underwater. Their drawings even resembled a prehistoric plesiosaur, often identified as matching descriptions of Nessie. But when the viewers tried to discover where the object came from or returned to, they hit a dead end. The creature seemed to simply appear and disappear. Considering that reports of human ghosts date back throughout man’s history, the Psi Spies seriously considered the possibility that the Loch Ness monster is nothing less than a dinosaur’s ghost.
If dinosaurs are haunting the planet it could explain the appearance of similar beast across the planet and the lack of hard physical evidence of their existence and this leads us to another famous cryptid one that has also been described as a living fossil not as old as the dinosaurs but from around 100,000 years ago.
Big foot has long been associated with the northern United States but recently there has been an increasing number of sightings in the United Kingdom. Unless the Bigfoot somehow managed to stow away on a plane or ship, there is real difficulty explaining his sudden appearance in the British countryside.
One person thinks that they have the answer.
Jon Downes is a U.K.-based researcher working for the Center for Fortean Zoology, he recently made a public comment on the strange, ape-like animals seen in the U.K.
“Unlike the phenomena in other parts of the world, each of the historic British Bigfoot and mystery ape cases have a convenient little folk story, or ghost story, attached to them to explain the presence of these apparitional creatures in the relevant region. Now, my theory is that none of these assertions is correct. I earnestly believe that these stories were invented by village folk in centuries past to try and explain the sightings of monkey-shaped apparitions that would fleetingly appear from time to time and then would vanish as if into thin air.”
Could these sightings be the spirit of the gigantipthicus or another extinct human ancestor?
If dinosaurs, farm animals and pets all have been seen why not the spirit of a long dead hominid?
This brings us to the question of spirit or soul, most except that humans possess a soul an essence of their character that survives after death. This is the spirit that becomes a ghost according to believers in the paranormal.
So at what point to does a soul come into being are animals soulless or do they too have a spirit which could live on after death?
At what point do we draw line?
Could we see ghostly insects or other small animals haunting certain locations?
This brings us back to Joshua and his thoughts on Phantimals.
Josh believes that the paranormal presence of different long extinct animals may very well go some way in explaining at least a few sightings of monstrous beasts, in particular those that seemingly appear and then vanish in the blink of an eye.
“Maybe Bigfoot is a ‘phantimal, perhaps even the ghost of a prehistoric creature, similar to the enormous extinct ape, Gigantopithecus, or maybe even the spirits of primitive humans.”
He also thinks that the idea of Nessie, being a “ghostly plesiosaur,” is a plausible explanation for the creature.
Neil Arnold an author who regularly writes on the subject of cryptids and the paranormal says: “‘I’ve investigated numerous reports of ghostly bears across England over the years. I’ve often been of the opinion that if people see ghosts of humans then they must surely be able to see ghosts of animals, the most common seem to be spectral pets: dogs, cats, and also horses and birds. However, I’ve gathered reports over the years of a number of ghostly, wilder animals from lions to apes. Ghostly bears have been reported all over the U.K. Maybe these are lost souls that suffered greatly at the hands of bear-baiting centuries previous.”
Neil does stress, that he doesn’t believe the reports of alleged U.K. wild men cross into ghostly bear territory.
He looks at the way in which bears are not naturally bipedal. When they do stand on their two hind legs they are not good at walking and can only cover short distances they also have no apparent stride.
In the few reports of phantom bears he says that he has researched, in every case the bear has been described as being on all fours and not standing in bipedal gate.
So what do you think, are the spirits of long-extinct animals roaming the woods and forests of the world?
Are spirit of long dead dinos cruising the depths of ancient lakes and oceans?
