Auras are not real.
The human body only generates three quantifiable forms of energy: neurological, electromagnetic, and thermal. None of these three forms can be seen with the human eye, which only picks up light in the visible spectrum.
If there was a certain “special” kind of person who could see such nebulous and heretofore unknown energies while the great majority could not, then it stands to reason such a “gift” would be hereditary and subject to the laws of genetics as modeled by Mendel. This means that out of a current global population of almost 7 billion 25% or 1.7 billion would have the gift to see auras.
It still also does not explain how they could perceive such an energy field in the first place – as I said, the human eye only registers lightwaves in the visible spectrum – it cannot pick up neural, electromagnetic, or thermal energy until thermal generates enough energy to produce visible radiation, like a flame or superheated metal.
What is far more likely is the possibility of visual defects in so-called “aura readers” which cause them to erroneously assume they are “blessed” with a supernatural gift to detect a heretofore unknown, undiscovered, and nebulous energy field of unknown origin and etiology when all scientific observation clearly shows that auras are not real.
Examination by Kirlian photography is inconclusive and non-empirical data at best, as Kirlian measures and records electromagnetic field fluctuations. Every living thing has an EM field, and such fields are in constant flux. Again, the human eye cannot pick up or register EM fields.
Half-baked theories of “etheric doubles” and other such twaddle have absolutely zero basis in fact and in reality are fantastical speculations only. Usually individuals claiming “special” knowledge of such theories are quick to qualify that “science” has no evidence of such things but cannot explain how it is that “they” know these things when scientific observation does not. There are no “true” psychics. Psychic phenomena is completely without any credible evidence to back up its claims, and is usually the purview of the con artist, the scammer, and the egotistical maniac.
I challenge anyone who says these fantasies are real to submit a claim to the James Randi Foundation to prove such paranormal abilities or claims are real. The Foundation is offering a 1 million dollar prize to anyone who can substantiate proof. BTW, no one has ever successfully claimed the money. Good luck. 2 weeks ago
