That, when the brains were out,
the man would die,
And there an end!
But now they rise
again,” —Act 3 Scene 4, Macbeth (via flamingonipples)
I had a huge jump in followers, so I think you helped! Thanks for spreading the word.
“The rack is commonly considered the most painful form of medieval torture. It was a wooden frame usually above ground with two ropes fixed to the bottom and another two tied to a handle in the top.
The torturer turned the handle causing the ropes to pull the victim’s arms. Eventually, the victim’s bones were dislocated with a loud crack. If the torturer kept turning the handles, some of the limbs were torn apart, usually the arms.
This method was mostly used to extract confessions, as not confessing meant that the torturer could stretch more. Sometimes, torturers forced their victim to watch other people be tortured with this device to implant psychological fear.
Many knights from the Knights Templar were tortured with the rack. The limbs collected from this and other punishments of the time were “emptied by the hundreds”.
Sometime this method was limited to dislocating a few bones, but the torturer often went too far and rendered the legs or arms (sometimes both) useless. In the late Middle Ages, some new variants of this instrument appeared. They often had spikes that penetrated the victim’s back - as the limbs were pulled apart, so was his spinal cord increasing not only the physical pain, but the psychological one of being handicapped at best, too.”
You’re so nice! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m not an expert or anything, but I think ghosts/spirits are possible and that they can often be attached to people (like your friend’s sister, in your case) or places (like the woman’s house).
As for the possible EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), I don’t see why it couldn’t be related to the things you mentioned in the first part of your message. Anything is possible and I wouldn’t want to rule out the things that you’ve already experienced as not being related.
However, there are many explanations for EVP. Some people say it is just radio interference or the tendency of the human brain to find patterns, such as language, in things. Others say EVP are psychokinetic thoughts directly imprinted on an electronic medium, communications from spirits, from humans in alternate dimensions/universes or even from extraterrestrials.
You sound as if you are sensitive to energy. Maybe something or someone was trying to communicate with you?
