My team offers consulting services to other teams to give a non-biased look at evidence, a team sent us a file from a SB-7 session and mentioned that he wasn't sure if the voice he was hearing was residual or intelligent. This led to the conversation as to what would or wouldn't come out of the device.
My personal opinion is that only intelligent spirits can come through on the SB-7 because the theory behind the device is that the spirit can manipulate the white noise generated to create a voice that we can hear. To me, residual energy wouldn't be able to do this because IMO it lacks the ability to interact with the physical world.
The questions that I pose to you
- Could a residual haunt come through on a spirit box?
- Would this explain responses that don't match questions that are asked?
- Would such evidence be of any value to the investigator?
