Ok. I am not military, I am just a stay at home Mom and I do not care if you believe me or not but I think a spirit lives in my home... actually I know she does. I've seen her and so have my kids. So anyway... weird things happen and the newest thing is when I'm sitting outside on the deck after the kids have gone to sleep my flood light goes crazy! It's a newer bulb so please don't suggest that. Plus it doesn't do it all the time. I just want to know if I can send someone about 2 minutes of video that I recorded tonight. I swear its morse code and just want to know what it means, if anything... in the video of the flood light you can clearly see/hear the distinct dits and dahs of morse code. I even believe it interacts when I "talk" to it. Call me crazy, I don't care. I have two small children and just want to know if it's a message or just a stupid loose wire... would really ease my mind.
Please email me at and I will send you the video to decipher.
Thanks in advance!

Well why does the ghost even need a switch to make electricity flow. Why can't she just unscrew the light bulb, set it on a table and talk to it. No reason the ghost can't make it light then, is there? If it can move a light switch it should be able to move a few trillion electrons.

You could also ask her to repeat really slowwwwwwly the letter 'M' ( - - ), sync' her with the day/night pattern, and you would get a free automatic night switch for the light on your deck..

Not so much ghosts as Morse. Still, as my credentials as a dilettante in the more esoteric areas of physics attest, string theory posits 11 dimensions, of which we can only directly experience three, but are likely represented (with infinitesimal magnitude) on the rest. Who knows what’s going on in the other eight?
It just occurred to me that Ghostscript might be an appropriate way to communicate!

With the Image Acquisition Toolbox you could monitor the light flashing and decode the morse code in real time, if that is actually what your ghost is using. Perhaps you could ask her to write down the messages in English instead. Then with the OCR capabilities in the Computer Vision System Toolbox you could turn her ghostly scrawls into computer text. Please upload your video to or see if you can attach it here with the paper clip icon. Is this interaction repeatable, like the light is always on except when you talk to her and then it starts flashing? Or was it just that one time. Perhaps when you or your kids see her again you can ask her to follow you outside to your deck to capture some good videos, hopefully of both her and her light flashings. With toolboxes like the Image Acquisition Toolbox and perhaps the Data Acquisition Toolbox you might be able to set up a motion/event triggered image capture to get images of her or her activities. Does she flash the lights indoors, or just onto your deck? Does she do anything else, like move things or draw things or make sounds? When you and the kids have seen her, is she always outside on your deck, or does she go inside too? Have you ever had a murder in your house or is it built on an ancient burial ground? Well, that's all just guesses until we see your video.
