The enigma of the Electric men


The mystery of the electric men is something that can happen every day, imagine, just happened near a lamp and it has been turned off. Avanza few more steps, turn your head and see who has been switched on again. Forget the issue and continues its path. This situation does not cease to be a simple story that probably would have passed most people ever. At the top is nothing strange. But what happens when an event like this occurs more times than he could be considered coincidental? Or when all the street lamps which are shut down so inexplicable?

The cases of this kind that have no rational explanation is a cover within what has been christened Effect SLI (Street Light Interference), a phenomenon known in Spain as "interference in the lighting" or, colloquially, apagafarolas. The following story illustrates to perfection as we try to explain. Its protagonist, who prefers to remain anonymous, was returning home one night. Fold a corner, suddenly, all the street lamps went out. Stupefied, he did not turn around to follow a dark and took another street. Again he did the same thing. Resigned, continued in the same way. But the most surprising thing is that when he turned away, street lamps light up again. The Effect SLI, therefore, is to the right, usually unintentional, for certain people to interfere with the normal operation of public lighting. This may mean that the lights are switched off, light up or vary in intensity when the person who caused the phenomenon is coming to them. This can happen with a single lamp or, as we have seen, with several at once. However, less common is that an entire row of lights are shutting down in a gradual shift from someone, to ignite as the individual goes away. One person told us such a case: "As I approached the streetlights were turned off. At no time thought that this could be related to me. But found that as you went away, and to my amazement, was lit by a new one. " Of course, conventional theories have been offered as the malfunctioning of the various components of the streetlights, but some cases can not be explained this way by going beyond the mere coincidence that these arguments imply. The following story, we hear the mouth of his protagonist, they testified, "and walked several people when we turn next to a lamp is turned off. In jest, commented that if we were gafados or something similar. No we gave more importance, but walks a few yards away, it was lit. When we pass along to another, did the same thing. And in the next. We continue joking on the subject, so to see if it was coincidence or not, we crossed the street to get closer to the front lamp. As you can imagine, also shut down again. Incredulous, again crossed the street toward the sidewalk where we were at the beginning, and was extinguished the lantern ahead. Always, when we alejábamos few meters from them, will turn on again. " The conventional theories, and it can not explain cases like the above, neglecting aspects of the phenomenon curious. And is that some of the Gamma-English term that is known to interfere apagafarolas not only in public lighting, but also in other electrical devices, such as cash registers, televisions, radios or computers. And sometimes, even in non-electrical, mainly compasses. After several appearances in our different media to speak on the topic, some people have contacted us. Given the extraordinary number of cases that acumulábamos, we decided to conduct systematic research. To do this we created a questionnaire of events SLI, which has helped us to reach some conclusions provisional statistics. Early results show that male and female protagonists in a similar percentage of cases Effect SLI, so you can not establish any distinction on the basis of sex. Moreover, these events occur, whether the person walks, as if traveling by car, motorcycle or other means of transportation. Anyway, the number of SLI effects produced when the protagonist goes on foot is much higher. This fact should not cause surprise, since it is easier to grasp the phenomenon while walking. Continuing with the statistical results, one of the data more striking is the fact that nearly twenty percent of the sliders in the questionnaire ensure that, as well as affect the lampposts, also have an impact on watches. So, Yolanda M. We counted: "The clock will stop me several times, and not just to me but to other people who are with me, especially my partner. The odd thing is that this always happens at night. " The electric shocks are also very directly related to the phenomenon of apagafarolas. The percentage of people who claim to receive more downloads of which could be considered normal is a nineteen percent, although we know that the figure is higher because in the questionnaire for collecting cases, no mention was made explicit in this aspect from the beginning. These sliders often receive shocks to snuff machines, switches, shopping carts, tap water, with other people ... Well, according to sources from the Laboratory of Electrical Engineering at the University of Catalonia, "the moist air works as a driver who favors the escape of tensions, if the environment is dry, the body does not release their energy and recharge." That is, that the above-mentioned "cramps" are more common when the atmosphere is humid. This is very important because that about twenty-five percent of the sliders reflected in the questionnaires that is in a cool and wet when the phenomenon occurs. In this same conclusion also reached by the researcher Hilary Evans, of the Association for the Scientific Study of the abnormal phenomena (ASSAP), after his pioneering study on the effect SLI. In addition, according to experts in electrical shock, when the body is recharged by energy, it can be released in the form of cramps, with bristly hair, feeling of tiredness and headaches. Oddly, some people associate the headaches with the experience SLI. Taking into account the above, could be the key SLI Effect of static electricity in the body? At the moment we can not offer a conclusive answer, but it is obvious that, at least, can be linked. Therefore, we have recently incorporated in the questionnaire a question about the clothes you saw the slider when interference occurs on the lampposts, as the shoe soles with synthetic fabrics and garments with acrylic, for example, increase static electricity. Such is the case of a Colombian secretary who caused a fire in a warehouse of solvents to produce a spark just by touching a metal shelf. As learned, was dressed in a nylon shirt and high heels. Year Zero and Enigmas.


El enigma de los hombres eléctricos

El misterio de los hombres eléctricos es algo que puede pasar cotidianamente, imáginese, acaba de pasar cerca de una farola y ésta se ha apagado. Avanza unos pasos más, gira la cabeza y comprueba que de nuevo se ha encendido. Olvida el asunto y sigue su camino. Esta situación no deja de ser una simple anécdota que probablemente le haya pasado a la mayoría de la gente alguna vez. En principio nada tiene de extraño. Pero, ¿qué ocurre cuando un hecho como éste se produce más veces de las que podrían considerarse casuales? ¿O cuando son todas las farolas de una calle las que se apagan de manera inexplicable?

Los casos de este tipo que carecen de una explicación racional se engloban dentro de lo que se ha bautizado como Efecto SLI (Street Light Interference), un fenómeno conocido en España como «interferencia en el alumbrado público» o, coloquialmente, apagafarolas. La siguiente historia ejemplifica a la perfección lo que tratamos de explicar. Su protagonista, que prefiere mantenerse en el anonimato, regresaba a casa una noche. Al doblar una esquina, de repente, todas las farolas de la calle se apagaron. Estupefacto, dio media vuelta para no seguir a oscuras y tomó otra calle. De nuevo le ocurrió lo mismo. Resignado, continuó por la misma vía. Pero lo más sorprendente es que, cuando se alejó, las farolas volvieron a encenderse. El Efecto SLI, por tanto, consiste en la facultad, normalmente involuntaria, de ciertas personas para interferir en el funcionamiento normal del alumbrado público. Esto puede traducirse en que las luces se apaguen, se enciendan o varíen de intensidad cuando la persona causante del fenómeno se acerca a ellas. Lo anterior puede suceder con una sola farola o, como hemos visto, con varias a la vez. Sin embargo, menos habitual es que toda una hilera de luces vayan apagándose de forma progresiva al paso de alguien, para encenderse a medida que el individuo se va alejando. Una persona nos narró un caso de este tipo: «En cuanto me aproximaba a las farolas, se apagaban. En ningún momento pensé que este hecho podía estar relacionado conmigo. Pero comprobé que a medida que las iba dejando atrás, y ante mi estupor, se encendían de nuevo una a una». Desde luego, se han ofrecido teorías convencionales –como el mal funcionamiento de los diversos componentes de las farolas–, pero algunos casos no pueden explicarse de esta manera, pues sobrepasan la simple casualidad que tales argumentos implican. La siguiente historia, que escuchamos por boca de su protagonista, así lo atestigua: «Caminábamos varias personas y cuando pasamos junto a una farola, se apagó. En broma, comentamos si es que estábamos gafados o algo similar. No le dimos mayor importancia, pero recorridos unos metros, ésta se encendió. Cuando pasamos junto a otra, ocurrió lo mismo. Y también en la siguiente. Continuamos bromeando sobre el tema, así que para comprobar si era casualidad o no, cruzamos la calle para acercarnos a la farola de enfrente. Como os podéis imaginar, también volvió a apagarse. Incrédulos, cruzamos otra vez la calle hacia la acera en la que estábamos al principio, y se apagó la farola que teníamos delante. Siempre, cuando nos alejábamos unos metros de ellas, se volvían a encender». Las teorías convencionales, además de que no pueden explicar casos como el anterior, dejan de lado aspectos curiosos del fenómeno. Y es que algunos de los sliders –término inglés con que se conoce a los apagafarolas– no interfieren sólo en el alumbrado público, sino también en otros aparatos eléctricos, como cajas registradoras, televisores, ordenadores o radios. Y, en ocasiones, también en aparatos no eléctricos, sobe todo brújulas. Después de varias apariciones nuestras en diferentes medios de comunicación para hablar sobre el tema, algunas personas se pusieron en contacto con nosotros. Ante el extraordinario número ...
