Street light interference phenomenonA 53-year-old American housewife told this story to the researcher Hilary Evans, who has long been engaged in the study of this phenomenon:

“For a long time I could not believe that the lights go out at my approach. I first drew attention to this oddity when I started to attend lectures at the college in the evenings. Several times, as soon as I turned on my street, the lights at our house went out. I did not say anything to anyone because I thought there was something wrong with the lights.

Then I began to approach the house from the other side of the street, but soon the lights there also began to go out. I thought it was a striking coincidence. Once, for example, I was walking home with a friend and suddenly, as we were passing by, four lights went out. Once we walked away, all lights lit up again.

It’s still going on, and few believe me until they see it with their own eyes.”

Evans receives such evidence from around the world. She says that unlike other paranormal phenomena, this phenomenon, called Street light interference, does not depend on belief or disbelief of the people themselves.

Electrical engineer Bill Beaty thinks that perhaps people who experience this phenomenon are something like “walking generators“, that is, their bodies produce a significant amount of static electricity, which can affect the operation of street lighting.



Many people, for example, produce static electricity, shuffling their feet on the carpet. Beaty said that some people are able to produce electricity, “getting” electrons from the air with each breath.

But if breathing can make us electrically charged, why don’t the electrical appliances turn off around us? Beaty said that maybe some people have some kind of viruses, which are not discovered yet and change the lungs of individuals, so that they begin to work as a sort of internal power station.

In addition, Beatty admitted that he understands that this theory sounds like complete nonsense. “There are lots of very strange, incredible things. Some people manage to find the explanation for them and then get the Nobel Prize,” he said.
