Paranormal Q&A with Trevor Gibson (Chapter 2)

Trevor Gibson

Who are you?
Trevor Scott Gibson, that guy over there.

Do you believe in Reincarnation?
In my own way I do believe.

Who do you think you were in your past life (or lives)?
Wouldn’t know, and I don’t feel the need to actually find out, I’m alive now in this life, anything else is just superfluous.

What are your thoughts on Para Unity?
I think it’s fairly important that different groups share ideas, it is the only way to streamline investigations, and improve gear, and hopefully, maybe, taken seriously.

Have you ever investigated a Church? What are your thoughts on this?
I have as yet not investigated at a church; To me a church is just another building, and there are lots of them, and if you think about it enough, wherever you are could be a church, deities are not part of buildings, and the building itself is not the deity.

When having a joint investigation with another team(s), how do you select the team(s) or members of other teams that you invite?
Never have been in that situation as yet, though I would hope to pair off with people compatible, and team up less experienced with the more experienced.

What do you tell someone looking to join a team, what should they look for or ask?
Be yourself, and look for a team you would think you can get along with, every team and person is different, and they handle things differently so join one that respects or upholds your idea of what you want out of ghost hunting.

Any advice to a group just starting out?
Keep at it. Expect lots of long hours of review. Carry on.

Do you think it’s important to share findings with others in the paranormal community?
Yes, for the most part, it’s one of the few things that will make the community grow.

You run across a team that you feel gives a bad name to the field.  How do you handle the situation?
If avoidance is not an option, keep to a professional (if standoffish) demeanor.

Do you confront them about it?
I would only confront them if they are impeding my investigation, purposefully sabotaging another groups findings, or if they were imposing their own morals or ideals on a client, since it’s not up to us to tell the client what to believe, regardless of what evidence we have.

Do you feel it is important to do a background investigation on the location (land/building) that you’re going to investigate?
Definitely, most places has it’s own (rich) history, and it’s possible to find even earlier mentions of haunting on the property, and for the debunkers, recent land surveys and tests, since the moans and bumps could just simply be the castle sinking into the swamp.
