EVP - ITC 101:
GHOSTWRITERS IN THE SKY
"We dont die" was the message that first got me interested in this, in 1966 ~kt
Talk to the Dead, the Unborn, the Discarnate, the Extraterrestrial?
Who's Listening? Maybe Governments & Intelligence, for one.
Who or What survives? Soul, spirit, essence? What are we really talking about when discussing ‘survival after death’? Discussions range from the traditional model of personal survival to merging into a super-individual entity like a drop of water in the ocean, to interdimensional holding patterns between lives, to the collective unconscious, higher plane existence, and many other variations.
"If everybody could hear those angelic voices just ONCE, there would never be another war. That's the only objective I recognize. Everything else is just a means of moving in that direction." ~kt
The ‘top-down’ approach to the survival problem – mediumistic enunciations, spontaneous cases, apparitions, hauntings, ITC/EVP, or other – has resulted in unyielding discussions between the positions of survival and ‘super-psi’ with no real progress. A bottom-up approach might be rooted in the virtual dynamics of scalar physics, and the holographic blueprints of all energy, matter and life.“Some ghost voices are definitely living people who are not completely aware that they are projecting "something" into the ethers.”~kt
But even without postulating discarnate entities or subatomic perturbations, it is feasible that the power of voice-like sound fragments to instantly draw, hold and narrow the attention -- to provide insight -- has been totally overlooked. Prepared and open minds might notice what might otherwise be overlooked. The indisputable fact that people keep reporting these experiences may be as or more important than their content.
Simple techniques can be employed for EVP such as hand-spinning analog AM radio tuners and echoboxes to the more sophisticated tunnel diode method. Certain space and earth weather conditions faor reception. In some instances, voices can be heard actually assembling themselves from static caused by lightning discharges.
Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) are voices of a paranormal origin which appear on recording media or through other electronic audio devices, according to proponents. It is also called "instrumental transcommunication" (ITC).
Reported instances are typically brief, usually the length of a word or short phrase, although longer segments are also claimed. The mainstream scientific community does not recognize the existence of EVP as a phenomenon. What little "scholarly" literature exists on the subject has exclusively appeared in publications that deal with topics outside of the mainstream such as parapsychology.
WHITE NOISE & COSMIC BACKGROUND RADIATION
Explanations regarding the nature and origin of EVP differ greatly. Paranormal explanations include communication from discarnate entities, psychic projections from EVP researchers themselves, or communication from alien or trans-dimensional beings. More prosaic explanations include cross modulation or interference from nearby radio sources, or random noise mistakenly perceived as voices due to pareidolia (the human propensity to find familiar patterns amongst random stimuli).For a brief history of EVP, see

ELECTRONICS-ASSISTED REMOTE VIEWING:
Scalar Physics & Random Noise
Human survival requires that we become aware of our responsibility for the future. We have an obligation to explore all possible avenues of communication, including those beyond the traditional means of EVP. SPIRITCOMM is an active not passive tech. It intentionally provides a medium for communication signals, amplification and monitoring of results in a systematic way, much like the SETI program does from signals from deep space.
BEYOND TRADITIONAL EVP
Skeptics may scoff, and perhaps our protocols and equipment aren't as yet very refined. This is an embryonic field. However, tantalizing glimpses into another realm of communication have appeared in recent years. Just because we don't understand EVP doesn't mean we shouldn't study it more systematically, seeking to improve our methods and verifiability. Science can only follow the seductive invitations of Mystery.
When we look into deep space, we are simultaneously looking back into deep time. The further out we look, the further back in time our vantage point literally becomes. We use an electronic and optical aid for this, naturally called a telescope, and we use different types to retrieve different kinds of information.
LAMBDA: Voice of the Invisible
When we look at the microscopic and atomic realms, we likewise use modern electronic devices which also help us penetrate to the very physics of the dawn of the Universe. White noise is the Voice of the Invisible. The Cosmic Microwave Background, the ambient background of the Big Bang, is responsible for 1/4 - 1/3 of the static on your TV set.
In 1965, Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson published a scientific study which proved that a radio signal with a wavelength of 7.3 cm was being emitted uniformly throughout all parts of the sky. This signal became known as cosmic microwave background radiation. Every cosmology predicts a CMB.
Penzias and Wilson won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1978 for their findings. It is believed that this cosmic static is comprised of photons of energy that are still cooling 15 billion years after the Big Bang. If you turn a television to a channel with no station, you will see this static.
SIGNAL & NOISE
When you are watching TV, you are watching static. The TV signal is not perfect, there are always small random electrons that go astray when the images are shot onto the screen. Digital television has improved on the problem, but you will always be exposed to the random fuzz in a normally fluid signal.
You may not see it, but the background radiation is always there. So the static is always there. Lambda and CMB have a close cousin: It is ZERO-POINT ENERGY! This randomized fluctuation is an ideal projective medium, a cosmic Random Signal Generator.
Quantum physics predicts the existence of an underlying sea of zero-point energy (ZPE) at every point in the universe. This is different from the cosmic microwave background and is also referred to as the electromagnetic quantum vacuum since it is the lowest state of otherwise empty space. Small fluctuations in this etheric SCALAR FIELD can create real time events, most often for nanaseconds, but occasionally longer effects.
This real energy cannot be directly sensed since it is the same everywhere, even inside our bodies and measuring devices. From this perspective, the ordinary world of matter and energy is like a foam atop the quantum vacuum sea. All energy in the physical or hyperspace exists as ZPE. Other forms of energy are literally illusions in the physical universe. Everything is the pumped up manifestatin of ZPE.
Meaningful signals, larger oscillations, from the vacuum ether can arise from random white noise. But as in the case of the SETI search for extraterrestrial messages from space, we have to be dedicated to capturing those signals.
The physical universe as we know it is a temporary illusion. It is a function of time dimension which makes it seem real, but it is actually virtual or unreal: all form is Void; all Void is form. What is real behind all this is the essence of indestructible creation and life as a part of integrated consciousness.
Quantum Mechanics has raised the possibility that the root of being is primordial consciousness, equivalent to or embedded in spacetime. Like energy, it cannot be created or destroyed. Humans have always had a strng intuition or wish that our personalities persist somehow beyond our merely physical vehicles. Some believe we will be reconstituted at a theoretical Omega Point.
Physicist Frank J. Tipler modelled a Physics of Immortality and eternal life. Others suggest an afterlife where every human being who ever lived persists as a holographic blueprint of information in the ether of subspace.
Consciousness studies supports a view where nonlocality and intentionality transcend the bounds of normal space and time. In other words, space and time are no impediment to instantaneous communication at the most fundamental levels. BUT WE HAVE TO BE RECEPTIVELY TUNED TO THE RIGHT FREQUENCIES.
We can direct our intentionality toward opening channels of communication with the future, and future generations. SPIRITCOMM experiments are a logical extension of current scientific knowledge. More systematic trials at this type of signal transfer through randomness might reveal an unexpected gilimpse of the near and far future, and what it wants and expects of us.
Time has got nothing to do with it. Neither does spatial displacement, as the Earth is always hurtling through a different spacetime coordinate in every moment of existence.
CALLING ALL DESCENDANTS
VOICES FROM THE UNKNOWN
The phenomenon of voices on tape manifests when questions are asked while an audiotape is recording. The room is kept silent while the tape continues for the "answer" period. When replayed in the answer phase, voices and sounds (music, moans, collisions, steps, skirmishes, etc.) can often be deciphered, some claim.
Garbled messages are subject to interpretation and reconstruction. The language may be foreign or even archaic or mixed into some sort of meta-language. But is EVP related to other spatial or temporal dimensions? The jury is still out. Is it possible that 'they' are trying many technical ways to be understood by us?
Much of spiritualism depends on channeling the dead, transdimensionals, or the past and discarnate. But intelligence sources report it is much easier and much more likely to communicate with the future.
We might speculate that our own descendants have more interest in communicating with us, and perhaps more advanced technical means for attempting to do so. Some have even speculated that gray ETs may be genetically mutated versions of ourselves - formerly human beings - from possible futures.
21st Century EVP
WHAT the exact source of various communiques is, from interdimensional beings to the dearly departed, is nearly impossible to assess rationally. One has to suspend critical thinking just to consider the possibiity. One thing is certain -- BEING DEAD DOES NOT MAKE YOU SMARTER!
EVP, as it has been known, has therefore been reduced, perhaps wrongly, to an almost laughable backwater of the paranormal. But the public is more interested in the paranormal than ever as evidenced by online forums, infotainment, haunted bed and breakfasts, and the shows that advertise them.
The movie FREQUENCY (2000) depicts, taps and resonates with our common nostaliga. An adult policeman discovers his father's ham radio set which begins transmitting the son's signals 30 years into the past during a high-intensity Aurora Borealis. He saves his father's life but naturally creates another timeline jeapardizing his own mother's life.
The movie highlights how problematical interacting with either past or future might be in terms of unforeseen consequences. Experts claim the past is very very difficult to change and inadvertant triggering of alternate timelines is totally out of the question. With superheroic effort you can possibly change the tiny thing you want to change but the stream of time instantly closes over it and goes on as before.
Still, interest of a few zealous EVP investigators has persisted since Edison first suggested the possibility during his lifetime, when spiritualism was enjoying a faddish popularity worldwide. The popularity of celebrities such as media medium John Edwards and his syndicated show "Crossing Over," reveals some segments of the public are most interested in speaking with their own departed loved ones. But the reports that are less personalistic or reassuring are among the most interesting anomalies for research in this emotionally-laden topic.
EVP has received little or no attention from the mainstream scientific community except in publications focusing on paranormal topics. However, unknown to many, various intelligence and counterintelligence communities have conducted their own proprietary experiments with more advanced EVP teck for decades. It goes far beyond hearing voices or music in fans or other random noise.
The Journal of Scientific Exploration, a publication covering "topics outside the established disciplines of mainstream" published results of an experiment by Imants Baruss. While Baruss did manage to record voices of unknown origin, none of the phenomena found were "clearly anomalous". Baruss therefore concluded that he "had failed to replicate EVP in the strong sense" and suggested that "one possibility is that previous researchers have been misled by known natural and psychological events and that there are no unusual phenomena to be considered."
The Journal of the Society for Psychical Research published the results of an experiment by Alexander MacRae in which he reports EVP being recorded inside a room specifically screened to prevent interference from external radio sources. MacRae concluded that the results "must have been in some way paranormal". Psi Research Journal published another of MacRae's articles in 1984, called "Some Finding Relating to Electronic Voice Phenomena". These journals are not subject to rigorous critical peer review as most scientific journals. There is less editorial oversight.
SPECIAL THANKS to Ghostwhisperer Frank Sumption and KT, as ever.
QUESTIONS FOR THE FUTURE: The Medium is the Message
HELP US write some meaningful Questions to ask the Future. We can direct our intentionality toward open lines of communication with a uniquely informed population -- our decendants and ancestors! What globally meaningful questions would you ask if you could?
KT claims the INSIGHT is fundamental in the attentional process, regardless of the source:"I'm peering into the computer listening to clip over and over and "hearing my own thing" and peeling the onion deeper and deeper. With no warning, a full blown answer to problem at hand springs from my own brain but triggered by the clip. If it sounds subjectively haunting or oddly strange but familiar, that's enough for immediate decent results and it cant hurt anybody unless making people smarter hurts them.
THE QUEST: THE MEANING OF MEANING
We naturally seek meaning as the Holy Grail of a purposeful life. Meaning is not content. Meaning is dynamic relationship which is a result of interaction of the user and the used. First you have an experience, then later you have the understanding. Even random stimuli perceived as significant can reveal our mental states or change lives. We are hard-wired to seek order in chaos.
We can have experiences but miss the subtle meaning. Approaching the meaning restores the experience by amplifying its real value in a different form beyond simple happiness. Meaning is embodied in the expression of a pattern of activation.
I DO WHATEVER MY RICE CRISPIES TELL ME TO
Past experience is revived in meaning. Meaningfulness is related more to vision, intuition and belief rather than truth or accuracy. There is actual and potential meaning. Yet, meaning drives us as well as nurturing us. It matters to the point of changing our physical chemistry, choices and behaviors. Meaning is both what we do every moment and te ultimate goal of our lives.
A sense of significance helps us apply philosophy to life, to challenge and inspire in a certain context. The sharing of meaning is the concrete basis of society. Meaning is not an attribute of information but a crucial aspect of human experience. If we have shared values and meaning we have common purpose. Culture is the shared meaning.
All deaths that are close to anyone are laden with messages, messages that change us. Death seems to be a doorway rather than a finality. We attached deep meaning to post-death experiences before the dawn of history. We have a gnosis about death and the beyond. It is the interplay of concepts, symbols and the real world. It may or may not yield clarity but is likely to arouse Mystery.
The most meaningful experiences and communications encode not only the experience of one life, but of many generations. It means NOT FORGETTING. That, in itself, is quite ineffable. The backward look gives us the assurance of history, like looking backward over our shoulder while moving forward to escape primal terror. Likewise, courageously and purposefully approaching the future extends our sense of self and community.
Perhaps the best thing we can do is formulate some meaningful questions for the only realm which is actively contacting us – our ancestors and descendants. Many believe our ancestors can hear and see us although they lose interest quickly once they cross over. But some go so far as to claim that technically-inclined spirits are facilitating the communiques of their fellows by manipulating radio waves and signals to form words or meaningful visual images.
Throughout much of human history, ancestors were revered and frequently visited in caves and barrows. People sat in these resonant chambers, chanting and drumming hypnotically and opening their psyches to the possibility of communication. People died so young, this youthful population needed guidance, needed wisdom. We are just coming to understand that we are young in terms of our culture and can benefit by rooting ourselves in deep time and the wisdom of eternity.
Breaking News at the Time Border
The future may plausibly be trying to connect with us through our many channels of electronic echo-chambers. Communiques may be fleeting, but could provide important clues that help us create a more optimistic future today and for those destined to follow us. What we do today matters in big and little ways since it creates the world of tomorrow. What would the future think of our actions and choices in retrospect? Small changes for good or ill can pump up into macroscopic effects over time.
Veterans of Mankind Research thinktank are devising ways in which we might pursue contact beyond our local spacetime, and critique materials arising allegedly from such sources.
The Intelligence community, in its search to leave no unopened doors to penetration and acquisition has developed some of the best techniques for tapping the electronic potential of the future for data mining. Some of these means have been provided to EVP 2007 for open public distribution and DIY experimentation.
