Paranormal Glossary: ECTOPLASM
Ecto/EctoplasM – A semi-fluid substance exuded by a physical medium from which materializations may form. Ecto is also what we call the smokey mist like substance we capture on film that we believe to be spirit energy. To avoid false evidence it’s important for you and other people to not be smoking during an investigation. If you must smoke, make a place away from the investigation for everyone to smoke at. Also watch out for your breath on cold days, fog, etc.. If you are sure none of the elements above are present and you don’t see any mist with the naked eye, yet it shows up on film, you may have something.
