The Acoustic Ghost in the Machine

I came across this awesome article when doing research on another topic. Haunting "supernatural" events can be explained by simple acoustics - infrasonic waves are the Ghost In The Machine! :D

Abstract: In this paper we outline an as yet undocumented natural cause for some cases of ostensible haunting. Using the first author’s own experience as an example, we show how a 19hz standing air wave may under certain conditions create sensory phenomena suggestive of a ghost. The mechanics and physiology of this "ghost in the machine" effect is outlined. Spontaneous case researchers are encouraged to rule out this potential natural explanation for paranormal experience in future cases of the haunting or poltergeistic type.
