About Me

  1. Hi guys, These are two of just a few voices contacts that come through sometime last week, But I would love to get a second pair of ears on what is being said?? For the first one, I introduced myself as always to Mr Raudive and asks him to speak with me, I would normally say (Can you speak in English, for me to and understand your contact) but for this time I didn't? I am hearing something being said as "I'm talking in English" The raw audio playing as the gibberish was in Mr Raudive native language of Latvian. The second EVP, I ask Mr Dennis Garbor, what transmission station are you working out of Mr Garbor? I hear "I asked the Living" Please let me know what you think is being said on the both EVP's? Many thanks Lance i'm talking in English.wav
  2. VIDEO SEVEN: CONTACT! VIDEO SEVEN: CONTACT! In this new video Anabela Cardoso recaps the main steps to experiment with the EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), namely: 1. Select a quiet place where there are no uncontrolled noises. 2. Select a source of noise; if the operator aims at the DRV (Direct Radio Voices) the obvious choice will be radio noise, preferably in the Short Wave(SW) in a point of the tuning scale where there are no normal radio emissions, between two stations. 3. Sit down and become quiet and relaxed. 4. Record for 10 to 15 minutes and ask questions to your invisible communicators leaving an interval of 1 to 2 minutes between each question. 5. Keep a log of your experiments. 6. Thank your communicators and listen to your playblack preferably next day so that your ears are not tired. She again confirmed that there is no specific protocol for the DRV. Every single ITC operator who receives the DRV has started by the EVP experimentation. Anabela reveals that her Rio do Tempo communicators have told her that they “are endeavouring and working to establish contact with everybody in this [our] world interested in the next world”. To realize this project they need many people to try the contact. Dr Cardoso finishes by playing two different anomalous electronic voices, one recommending her to make contact through the microphone and a spontaneous one which occurred during a telephone conversation with two friends.

  4. I got some good results by using my Xiaomi Note 10 smartphone with an external microphone for recording and post processing. For recording I used the app "Smart Recorder" because you can set the microphone level with it and operation is very simple. For post processing I use NCH Wavepad.
  5. big circle. louder.wav Hi All, I have been back for an hour every morning recording for the E.V.P, I have gone back to my roots of only using white noise for my work (Transform EVP) This is Vocal came through the crystal bridge device, a few weeks back, I was pleasantly surprised to hear from our friend from the AAEVP Debbie Caruso (Deceased) I asked if Debbie is still working with the big circle on the other side, I hear her say "Big Circle". Take a listen, tell me what you hear? Take care, Lance
  6. Hi eveybody! My question is: How to build this (original) TDC device used in The Scole Experiment (Detailed and meticulous instructions including all electronic components - especially the coils -, their parameters, dimensions and distances from each others, code numbers and availability in case they are for sale or parts of some antique crystal radios) ? Copy of the image representing this original model is uploaded below: https://content.invisioncic.com/n303486/monthly_2021_03/GR-Scole.png.2262076167037a796514da32c3fe66e1.png https://robinsphysicalphenomena.webs.com/thetdcdevice.htm Cheers, GISMO5367 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dr Jeffers Hi I dont think there are any specific details of this device existing except the basic wiring diagram and pics that you have linked to. There have been reproductions of this device, and the people concerned would have made guesses as to how to build it in relation to spacing of the crystal to the coils, the inductance of each coil, etc. Pieces of germanium can be bought off ebay, and the coils can be wound or existing coils used. The germanium chip is under pressure via the screw, and this is an important point of its operation, I believe. The coil specifications may not be that critical. So its a case of using intuition to build it, so it has best chance of working for you, and therefore you become entangled with it, and it its operation. JEFF 16 hours ago https://content.invisioncic.com/n303486/monthly_2021_03/JTK.thumb.jpg.e761530d732957b54c2b14e7a16055b5.jpg GISMO5367 This image above has been copied from the Internet, and I am not sure how the original version of the TDC-device they used in the Scole Experiment lookes like? Maybe that image represents just the original version of the device? I don't have first-hand information and I have had difficulties reaching Robin Foy and other people in the Scole group who are involved. If we build a replica of The Germanium Receptor - according to my opinion - everything matters: Placement of the coils, their size, resistance, amplifier, conversion of the signal from analog to digital format (if this is possible) etc. My plan is to build a replica of the TDC device following the "instructions" as carefully and meticulously and I hope to find relevant, accurate and true information for that ( not suppositions). Modern technologies are also under construction, but as far as I know, those technologies help mainly in signal processing and filtering ( not improving the quality of the original signal).

  8. Hi all. I decided to share what I'm working on, even though I'm not sure if I'll get the results I'm seeking with this device. I've been wanting to build something for a couple years and recently I asked for a simpler way instead of building all the boards myself. Here's what I've come up with, which recently I discovered isn't a new idea at all, but I am pressing forward anyway:) I'm using musical equipment for sound. A mini amplifier, music pedals, and connection cables. I cannot explain why but I've had strong impressions about copper, so my husband helped me add copper elements and he designed a cover for me using a 3D printer just to make it look cool. There are countless devices out there for spirit communication. Much of it is difficult for the average non believer to decipher messages (words and sentences, responses to questions, names, etc). One of my ideal goals is for anyone to be able to communicate with the other side as I've been able to do all my life, and then even improve on what I've been able to experience myself. Having real time conversations and information shared. Where I see a person that is not immediately distinguishable from everyone else, others might see a white mist, or nothing at all. I also realize there's a big difference between communicating with those I see from the other side and those that are in different planes that I do not see, but am able to communicate with at times. I'm not sure the difference with communication levels, from those aspects. Here are a few pictures of what we've put together. Tonight I did attempt to connect a microphone, however in putting this all together, there's a big difference in how some things can connect (whether it's an input, output, needs a charging source, and a few other restrictions). The microphones I have connect to computers that also supply power. Attempting to connect those to this device did not work as there's no way to provide incoming power to the microphones and use them. I also have other microphones but ran into similar issues. The only microphone we were able to connect was from a video camera and this microphone has it's own power supply via rechargable battery. So I'm sure I've made some of this a little more complicated than need be, but it's a learning process as well. I've had some success using various software, but it's muddy with other noise built into said software (from outside sources). Seeing posts from Andrés had me thinking how much simpler a microphone could be and although I didn't have success the first attempt, I'll continue to test. I love the idea of just a microphone without all the extra added noise of radio frequencies, mixed in voices, mixed in noises, etc.
  9. Abstract I am an electronic engineer by profession and involved in instrumental transcommunication for three years. In the past 10 years I did some experiments with light. Specifically I was investigating different light sources for modulations that could be made audible by a simple setup made of a phototransistor and an amplifier. By the end of the year 2021 I decided to repeat those investigations upon the light coming from the sky, especially at dawn and at night (looking for possibly very low light intensities). This report describes a series of experiments I did with different sources of light and my quest to identify the potential for psycho-kinetic modulation in it. Introduction Modulated light was always fascinating to me. The first experiments I started as a young boy when I discovered that ambient light contains hidden information, by just using a light dependent resistor and a simple transistor. My first encounter was the power line hum imprinted in every light source we use. However, very quickly I found out that TV-screens, monitors, control lamps, remote control LED’s and much more were emitting all sorts of different and often complex modulation patterns. In 2010 I designed the best modulated light receiver I had made so far. It found a place behind the windshield of my car and I drove around to sample as many audio recordings as I could. This way I recorded the sounds of head lights, street lamps, neon lamps, signs a.s.o. You can find some examples in the following. Sound samples with modulated light from around 2010 Sound Link Sound from an external display on a bus Bus_Anzeige_2.mp3 Sound from a LED car headlight LED-Scheinwerfer_4.mp3 Beat of two interfering car headlights Schwebung.mp3 Table 1: Examples for modulated light It was at that time already when I first encountered a phenomenon I could not explain. It was an audible anomaly catched at a moment when no visible source of artificial light was around while I was driving down a country road at dawn. Hear this: Was_ist_das_1.mp3 This sound appeared to me like a bypassing U.F.O and I couldn’t make any sense from it. As I said, back in that time I was not involved yet in the investigation of paranormal phenomena. In the following chapter I will describe the circuit I used for my latest experiments in detail. The SkySound light receiver I named the device “SkySound” because I deliberately designed it for the investigation of light emissions coming from the sky. Paranormal phenomena and spirit voices gained in instrumental transcommunication are merely observed at night, so it was logical to create a device that could pick up those faint modulations also, if present at all. The standard approach for receiving light with electronic components is the phototransistor. Basically this is a standard transistor with a transparent case. That way not only small electrical currents going into the base (control electrode) of the transistor are amplified but also light shining on the transistor substrate. These components are cheap, sensitive and easy to handle. Fig.1: VT9112 phototransistor In my experiments I used the VTT9112 phototransistor because I dragged a bunch of them from the trash can in the company I worked for, 20 years ago. The following image shows the electronic circuit that will be explained in detail. If you are not interested in the electronic functions of this device you can skip this chapter safely. You don’t need to know the inner details to follow my descriptions of the anomaly itself in the later chapters. Fig.2: SkySound electronic schematic The transistor marked as “T1” is the VTT9112 I already described. Instead of the classical load resistor in the emitter path I provided a special circuit made of T2/R1/R2/C9. This is a self-adjusting load that always holds the dc bias in the middle between the power supply voltage and ground to provide always the best output swing for T1. Moreover, it works as a high impedance load for T1 and thus ensures maximum output. Transistors T3 and T4 are used as standard emitter amplifier stages. They are pushing the amplitude level high enough for the circuit IC1 to work with. This circuit is an integrated preamplifier originally designed to pre-process microphone signals. It provides a compressor to limit signal overdrive and a noise gate. The noise gate is a circuit that suppresses signals below a certain threshold and amplifies everything above the threshold. In practice this is not a hard threshold. Moreover, the transmission characteristic is non-linear and, if carefully adjusted, can boost small fluctuations in the noise signal, exactly where the spirit voices are hiding. So in easy words, the noise gate is utilized to increase the so-called “psycho-kinesis modulation” (pk-modulation). However, I found out that this function requires very careful adjusted input levels. The pk-modulations in the signal output is enhanced slightly but the signal quality is not. Obviously the spectral compositions of the signal deteriorated slightly by using noise gating. The use of this feature is up to deeper scrutinization. The other components are used for the power supply of the circuits. As I already said, my intention was to pick-up rather low intensities of light at night. Nevertheless, after my first tests I found out that the receiver should also be capable of handling bright light. the result was the above-described self-adjusting load. The phototransistor has a very small area that is susceptible to light. To make it more susceptible without just raising the background noise the transistor generates, the optically susceptible area must be enlarged. Classical approaches are lenses or mirrors. I decided to build a small reflector funnel that directs every beam of light, entering the opening of the funnel, to the transistor. Fig. 3: The reflector funnel I made the funnel from cardboard that is quite rigid and easy to cut. In total I made 4 triangular shaped planes, covered with reflecting foil and glued them together. At the bottom of the funnel I placed the electronic circuit with the phototransistor “looking” directly into the funnel. The opening of the funnel covers an area of 0.01 m2. Thus the optical area of the transistor of 1.96 10-5 m2 theoretically is enlarged by the factor 509. In practice this factor will be lower due to inevitable reflection losses. The casing for the electronic circuit was realized by pieces of double sided copper plated PCB material, soldered together. This way I obtained an optimal double shielding against electromagnetic interference. Fig. 4: The completed SkySound receiver I made a simple stand from wood with a joint to adjust the inclination of the receiver that looks much like the feeding horn of a satellite LNB receiver. The foot of the stand contained a magnet, so I could attach the whole receiver easily to a metal plate on the window sill. I placed the receiver in my attic where it overlooks the surrounding area from a height of 12m. The inclination angle against the horizon is almost zero, making the receiver looking at the lower sky roughly at horizon level. I connected the receiver to my Windows-10 Notebook with WIFI connection to my home router and used the application “butt” to stream the signal to the varanormal shoutcast server where it was relayed back as “Stream 4” which is reserved for my experiments. Investigation results I started my investigations by the end of 2021 and they are still ongoing. In the previous chapter I already described some of the experiment parameters that I want to list here. List of experiment parameters Parameter Value Height of installation 12m Inclination angle 0° (facing horizon) Viewing angle of funnel approx. 40° horiz. and vert. Facing sky direction North (0°) Stream encoding MP3 44.1 KHz Coordinates of location (Google maps) 53.682491442051194, 9.668064790784461 Table 2: list of experiment parameters General observations I quickly observed some general characteristics of the received signals and the properties of the receiver. Basically the signal was very low at night and very strong at day. This is no surprise because more light causes more current and more current causes more noise in the transistor. This is a rule of thumb in the world of physics. The question is if there would be an additional amount of noise coming from the quality of the light from the sky and not its quantity. We keep this consideration aside for the moment. In any case, the light caused huge signal level changes during sunset and sunrise that were remarkable. Fig.5: Signal level increase at sunrise from february 06-02-2022 (dd-mm-yyyy) At the time I was doing my investigations the sun was rising around 07:45 CET (06:45 UTC). You can see very clearly the non-linear “trumpet” shaped signal rise taking place over a time period of 6 minutes. Fig.5: Signal level decrease at sunset from february 06-02-2022 (dd-mm-yyyy) Sunset these days is around 17:45 CET (16:45 UTC). More or less you can see the sunrise characteristic going backwards in the image above. The shape of the signal is not as beautiful as the “trumpet” at sunrise. You must take into account that clouds passing by and all kinds of precipitation are overmodulating the light from the sun. I recorded and post processed the signals. What I found out was that especially at those transitional periods around dawn the signal contained a lot of spirit voices. At broad daylight there was heavy noise but low pk modulation and at night the signal level was too low for a reasonable signal gain. For the post processing I used Wavepad (NCH). My standard procedures for signal processing were Adding reverb (500ms decay time, 75ms predelay, 50% diffusion, 0dB wet signal gain, -6dB dry signal gain) -3 dB multiband noise gating 20% auto spectral subtraction signal normalization I exported some audio samples, processed with the methods listed above. Of course interpretation of the content of spirit messages is always subjective. Moreover every ITC researcher develops a kind of clairaudience based on the methods she or he is using. The result is that others often can not hear what she or he hears. If the evaluated samples do not have Class A quality they are often interpreted as pareidolia. Thus I won’t blame anyone for evaluating the following examples this way. In order not to influence the reader's perception I provided my interpretation of the samples in a table to be found in the annex of this document. I just want to say that I identified the language as German. Link to audio sample SkySound-A1 SkySound -A1.mp3 SkySound-A2 SkySound-A2.mp3 SkySound-A3 SkySound-A3.mp3 SkySound-A4 SkySound-A4.mp3 SkySound-A5 SkySound-A5.mp3 Table 3: List of exported audio samples from initial SkySound sessions The Stream 4_13 event At February 12, 2022 I was still lying in bed in the morning. It was Saturday and the sunrise had started around 07:45. At 08:17 I decided to switch on the streaming audio app “MR” on my smartphone and recorded the SkySound signal while listening to it with closed eyes. The recording app “MR” named it “Stream4_13”. After 11 seconds I suddenly heard strong bursts breaking through the noise. First it just appeared to me like a periodic interfering signal but then I recognized voice fragments stronger than I ever heard them directly in noise. Fig.6: Envelope of raw signal at the Stream 4_13 event After 8 minutes I stopped the recording and listened to the signal I had picked up. It was full of weird sounding voice breakthroughs. Post-processing of this signal was easily done because of the superior pk-modulation. I applied spectral subtraction based on a noise sample and what came out is visible on the next image. Fig.6: Envelope of processed signal at the Stream 4_13 event This processed audio contained surprisingly loud and partially clear messages overlayed by humming sounds. Stream 4_13 audio samples Raw signal Stream4_13.mp3 Processed signal Stream4_13-processed.mp3 Table 4: Stream 4_13 recordings I leave it up to the reader to make up his own mind upon the results. I evaluated them as most amazing. The interpretation of the voice contents gave me the impression that the spirits had tried something to surprise me or they did something that even surprised themselves. I am not sure about this. Investigation of other light sources At the beginning of the previous chapter I already pointed out the question if the received noise is more a function of the light quantity coming from the sky or, at least partially, also a result of the quality, namely the spectral composition, of the light itself. It is always good to have something to compare your results against to draw further conclusions. So I decided to stimulate the phototransistor with other light sources and to see what comes out. I replicated the SkySound circuit on a breadboard and attached different LED’s to the phototransistor that could be regulated in terms of their light intensity. My first goal was to find out if different LED’s are producing different light intensities and noise characteristics under the same conditions. So I concluded I must operate the LED’s in a way that they are supplied with the same amount of power to make their outputs comparable. Making recordings and evaluating and comparing the results in terms of pk-modulation was also part of the experiments. For the post processing of the recordings I used two different methods in NCH Wavepad. Description of applied post processing methods in NCH Wavepad Id Method Comments #1 Adding reverb (500ms decay time, 75ms predelay, 50% diffusion, 0dB wet signal gain, -6dB dry signal gain) -3 dB multiband noise gating 20% auto spectral subtraction signal normalization This method is a compromise between denoising and the generation of artifacts as they are typical for software-based denoising algorithms. As a result the signal integrity of the outcome is still acceptable but the resulting pk-modulation is not at optimum. #2 Spectral subtraction based on a grabbed noise sample signal normalization This method optimizes the pk-modulation. The downside is that the signal loses much of its original integrity. Nevertheless, voices can be identified easily in general by repeatedly listening to short sequences. Table 5: Description of post processing methods Experiments with a yellow LED A yellow LED is a very rough approach to sunlight since it’s spectrum is limited and does not cover ultraviolet frequencies. I ran the LED with a current of 4 mA. This is a very practical value that gives a reasonable amount of light while keeping the heat loss in the LED low. Because the SSM2167 circuit imposes variable amplification and audio compression on the received signal, I tapped the signal right before this stage (Pin 5 of SSM2167) to ensure the amplification of the signal is stable. The noise signal was measured with the RMS function on my oscilloscope. Here are the values I measured. Results gained from yellow LED Parameter Value IF: LED current 4 mA UF: Forward voltage on LED 1.9 V Calculated input power (UF x IF) 7.6 mW Noise level 36 mV Table 6: Measurements with yellow LED Then I made a recording of a 1 minute length of the noise signal. I could already hear the pk modulation as a faint voice burst on the noisy ground floor. Recordings made with yellow LED Description Link to audio file Raw recording (MP3) Yellow_LED_4mA.mp3 Recording post-processed by #1 Yellow_LED_4mA_1_processed.mp3 Recording post-processed by #2 Yellow_LED_4mA_spectralSubstract.mp3 Table 7: Recordings made with yellow LED The results are showing a fairly strong pk-modulation but rather poor voice quality. Experiments with a ultraviolet LED A UV LED shows a much higher spectrum of frequencies compared to yellow LED. Basically ultraviolet light is higher in energy too. To make the results comparable to the ones I gained from the yellow LED I measured the forward voltage across the LED and recalculated the LED current so that the power consumption of the UV-LED would be identically compared to the yellow LED. Here are the values I measured. Results gained from yellow LED Parameter Value IF: LED current 2.5 mA UF: Forward voltage on LED 2.96 V Calculated input power (UF x IF) 7.6 mW Noise level 40 mV Table 8: Measurements with UV-LED You see that within some tolerance considerations the emitted noise signal is the same compared to the yellow LED Then I made a recording of a 1 minute length of the noise signal with the UV-LED. My first impression was that it was not different from the yellow LED. Recordings made with UV LED Description Link to audio file Raw recording (MP3) UV_Diode_2p9mA.mp3 Recording post-processed by #1 UV_Diode_2p9mA_processed.mp3 Recording post-processed by #2 UV_Diode_2p9mA_spectralSubstract.mp3 Table 9: Recordings made with UV-LED Again the results are showing a fairly strong pk-modulation but rather poor voice quality. My evaluation was that there is no substantial difference between the results obtained from a yellow and a ultraviolet LED. The logical conclusion is that the pk-modulation is not bound to the spectral composition of the light whether it is yellow, ultraviolet or sunlight from the sky. Narrowing the focus Another question that came up during my investigations was if the noise with this substantial amount of pk-modulation was a product of light at all. Phototransistors are producing noise not only from light shining on their substrate but also from any current that flows into the base lead of the transistor causing it to draw collector current. That was easy to test. I disconnected the LED from the power supply and wired different resistors from the phototransistor base to the power supply starting from 680 K ohm up to 15 M ohm. There was almost no noise perceivable, especially not that quality of agile noise interspersed with cracks and bursts. My conclusion was that for the pk-modulation to take place, the transistor needs light but of no special spectral composition. However I was aware that I did not take into account another crucial component, the SSM2167 circuit. Due to its non-linear behavior it imposes a substantial amount of transformation on the signal. I could not exclude that it could contribute to the observed effects. In order to find an answer to this question I changed my experimental setup. According to my measurements the SSM2176 roughly added an amplification of 20 to the system. So, I forked the signal behind the preamplifier and routed it to the SSM2167 or another amplifier stage with an amplification of 20. Thus the resulting signal would always show the same level but one time processed by the SSM2167 and another time just amplified linearly without compression or noise gating. Recordings made with UV LED and with/without SSM2167 Description Link to audio file Recording with SSM2167 UV_with_SSM.mp3 Recording without SSM2167 UV_without SSM.mp3 Table 10: Recordings made with UV LED and with/without SSM2167 Fig.6: Signal without (left) and with (right) SSM1267 I think you can see that there is more modulation visible in the right image that shows the signal processed by the SSM2167. The sound characteristics of the recordings support this observation. The recording of the sample with SSM1267 involved contains some vast and abrupt level changes. These are due to adjustments I did on the potentiometers connected to the circuit and are not related to pk-modulation. Obviously the non-linear behavior of the SSM1267 adds a substantial amount of pk-modulation to the signal while the question, if the processing this circuit does is amplifying the already present modulation or if the circuit itself is a door for pk-modulation itself, remains unanswered. Due to my experience every kind of signal transformation that affects the signal structure is a gate for pk-modulation. Alternative post processing methods So far the post processing methods I applied are standard methods from the signal enhancing software toolbox. One of the researchers in our Varanormal team developed a software that is based on AI algorithms and is able to outperform the classical denoising and filtering techniques under certain conditions. Because I already have the last version of this fantastic application installed I wanted to give it a try. In the following you can see the parameter settings I used. Fig.7: Parameter settings for the machine learning algorithm The parameters were carefully optimized by controlling the output by ear while always only changing one parameter. After reaching the optimum for every parameter the output level of the SkySound device was altered up and down to see if any more improvements could be made. Basically I got a decoded signal that had all properties of the human voice especially in terms of rhythm. I really obtained just one continuously speaking voice instead of a bunch of parallel talking spirits like I got from earlier experiments. Nevertheless the weird metrics of spirit voices remained . Often the pronunciation of syllables is unusual compared to human speech. Some phonemes are enlarged and other shorted unnaturally. I think this is due to the spectral material the spirits find in the signal entropy we give them to work with. They seem to try to put the right words in where these match the actual spectral composition and signal transitions they are observing. However, very often the created vowels and consonants do not match the needed length to form normal speech and that is why the speech sounds so weird. I extracted lots of samples I want to show here. Again you can find my interpretation of the messages in the annex.

First I replaced the phototransistor with a light dependent resistor (LDR), a PTC (positive temperature coefficient resistor) and a CCR (carbon composition resistor). I used all these components in earlier ITC-experiments. The CCR showed a bit of pk-modulation but not as good as the phototransistor. Another important part of the circuit I identified to participate on the pk-effect is the self-adjusting transistor stage T2. It's original purpose is to adjust the receiver automatically with changing light conditions. Since working with an LED provides more or less constant light intensity there is theoretically no need for such a circuit. But for some reason it turned out that it adds-up substantially to the pk-effect. So I kept it. At the end I optimized the usability of the SSM 2167 module. It worked very well by replacing the potentiometers for signal compression and noise gating by fix resistor values and do the adjustments only with the potentiometer to control the light intensity of the LED. My findings were the base for a new prototype I made working with a phototransistor and a UV LED. Fig.8: Breadboard layout of prototype Fig.9: Working prototype After making the breadboard layout and the final prototype I recognized they don’t behave identically. The finalized prototype showed large spikes with pk-modulation characteristics breaking through with high energy. They were literally bombshelling the noise gate of the SSM 2167 causing it to full open the gate at every spike that appeared like a small explosion. I could exclude statics and radio interference because the effect grew with the light intensity and at least appeared to me to have the same rhythm as the voices. Sound example of the Prototype: Photon Bridge Prototype.mp3 I processed this recording a bit with reverb and voice pitch. I think at least you should be able to identify a voice although it is so overdriven that you cannot understand it: Noise Explosion Processed.mp3 Conclusions I think this paper is interesting because it does not show a linear and straightforward approach from an idea towards a realization. Instead you can see something that is very typical for the research work in ITC. You are starting with a certain idea or phenomenon to be investigated. While following this path by using scientific methods (experiments, documentation and conclusion) you finally see that the original question is not in your focus anymore. New questions are showing up and very quickly you are following a quest of a yet unknown goal. Someone else now is leading the path you are walking on and in the end you are given something that is not what you were looking for but maybe something even more precious. I was looking for hidden modulations in the light from the sky but what I found was a combination of a noise source with an audio circuit that was designed for a totally different application. Working together they are creating the best quality of continuously speaking voices I ever was able to obtain. Nevertheless there still is a chance that the light from the sky contains more magic than an ordinary LED may cause. At least I don't yet got a Stream4_13 event with a UV-diode. So maybe there is more to come. For now, I just can say “Thank you” to the hereafter.

  10. Two years ago I designed a very simple variant of the Seidl Psychophone. You can read the description here: https://www.varanormal.com/forums/topic/43-8-the-seidl-psychophone-a-modern-design-by-andrés-ramos/ My results can be found here: https://my.hidrive.com/share/n.j2rt3fs0 Now Kim came up with the idea of making boards for this device. I could make devices from them for a price just covering my own costs and the ones from Kim. Before we start we need to know if community members would be interested in obtaining this device.
  11. Today I tried to implement stages from my SkySound receiver in my microphone circuit. Specifically a self adjusting load for the electret condenser microphone and the SSM 2167 noise gating circuit. I got interesting results. Basically the noise from the microphone and environment provides the same pk modulation as with the LED in the SkySound Receiver. But you get the "real" microphone voices on top. Here some examples. Gained with noise gating A sequence gained with noise gating. At the end the last Utterance was repeated and processed: Noise Sequence with NG.mp3 "Wir sind die Toms" : Wir sind die Toms von Sättingen.mp3 "Mach mein"s: Mach meins -NG.mp3 Here voices gained without noise gating: "Andrés, werden uns beteiligen" (poor quality): Andres -NG.mp3 "Am Fenster sitzen wir": Ein Zerrbild wir sind.mp3 "Hab ihn unterbrochen". This voice was gained from a radio football broadcast in the background Hab ihn unterbrochen.mp3 Apart from the fact that the noise gating adds croaky and hissing voices like I know from other devices, the quality of the voices seems not to be different from normal microphone spirit voices. So I think noise gating is a nice idea and implementing it into the microphone offers some interesting use cases with different backgrund sound levels that could be adjusted to slightly touch the noise trigger threshold but basically one could do without the noise gating as well I think. I will do more tests tomorrow. Uns darf keiner mehr jagen.mp3 Er besitzt einen neueren - NG.mp3

  13. Guest Sheri Perl shares highlights from her book “Lost and Found" showing the many ways her son, Danny, demonstrated to her that what she had lost in the flesh could indeed be found in the spirit. Her slideshow includes photos and videos of wonderful signs he sent, amazing orb videos and images of orbs interacting with her, audible EVPs played, a description of experiences with materialisation mediums David Thompson and Gary Mannion, her understanding of how she believes the information gets through, why we dismiss it, and the importance of trust.

  17. Dr. R.Craig Hogan shared experiences of ordinary people having experiences of direct contact with their loved ones in the afterlife using various methods including Repair and Reattachment Grief Therapy, Induced After Death Connection, EVP and ITC, physical mediumship and after-death contacts. His claim is that personal experience is the best proof of the afterlife and everyone is able to have such experiences if they put in the time and energy.
  18. I did another interesting experiment today. I used my Spica chaos electronic circuit and attached an electric buzzer to it. A buzzer mainly behaves like the oscillating relay in my VISPRE device. By tuning the chaos pattern and the current through the buzzer I could make it emitt snaring sounds with speech rhythms. VID_20211127_180322.mp4 I could record and export some fairly good voices. Geh an Weihnachten.mp3 Geh danach in weisse Nacht.mp3 In Reichstag gehen.mp3 Videos.mp3 The setup is not the prototype of a working device, I see it more as a research project where I learned something from. The buzzer is a mechanical device that is able to self oscillate because of positive feedback. If you excite it with random patterns mimicking speech in a way that self oscillation is short before to start, the tiniest energy fluctuation will kick in self oscillation with an exponentially rising signal ramp. In case of the buzzer it starts to snare. It's this fragile state where pk modulation may control this transitional point of operation. The second thing is an acoustical bandpass forming formants from the impulses. The voices I posted here still are sub optimum in terms of spectral composition. I am thinking of a set of tubes with different lengths and volumes resonating on the base frequencies of the human pharynx.
  19. Today I finished a prototype where I incorporated all the findings and conclusions I gained from my previous experiments. VID_20211120_170126.mp4 A steel ball is mounted to the rotating shaft of a gear motor. The motor is controlled by the SPICA circuit. The ball is pressed against the diaphragm on a tube. The tube is closed and a microphone picks up the signal from the inside of the tube. The signal is post processed online with the lingua device. I also implemented a hardware reverb module but it doesn't add much to the signal quality.
  20. This experiment was more of a joke but I also wanted to see how randomly varying low frequency impulses would be shaped while going through a mechanical spring. This is part of my current work to investigate the transformation of sound by spirits. I found out that a spring adds reverb and a bandpass filtering to a signal going through it, much like the old reverb spirals for guitars back in the 70s. VID_20210808_1221391.mp4 As a source of impulses I used a self oscillating relay and connected a spring to the vibrating anchor. The other side of the spring was hooked into the mylar membrane of a cardboard tube. Depending on the amount of mechanical 'bias' tension the spring behaved very different. Also the mechanical tension it imposed on the relay made the whole arrangement very agile. With some tensions I got different standing waves in the spring I assume and I could make it emit strong or very low sound. After all the pk effect was minor compared to the roaring sound. In another recording I could isolate some voices at least perceivable without post processing but accompanied by strong sound. I don't think I could make an ITC device with satisfying results from this setup but at least it was interesting how sound can be shaped by only applying mechanical means.

  21. This paper has a scientific focus and in it I'm trying to outline a model for voice ITC in the particular case of coherer reception. I dedicated this work to the whole Varanormal community and especially to Jeff. I wouldn't have made it without all of you. The Coherer Effect.pdf
  22. Audacity is a perfect tool for ITC. If you use it consequently like I am doing since years for ITC you don't want to miss it anymore. To get Audacity you first need to download it here. After installation you can make some basic setups I will show you now and that are optimized for ITC. I configured Audacity mainly along with its usage, thus everything I found out as best practice is empirically found. First go to Edit->Preferences: Another menu with lots of tabs is showing up. Here we can make all the basic settings we want to use in order to facilitate our work. I just will talk about the tabs that are useful for us. Leave the rest of them in default settings. The first tab contains settings for the input/output devices. Since all my ITC devices are using the line input of my soundcard it is favorable to specify it for the recording device. In my eyes it makes sense to set mono recordings as default. Stereo tracks don't make sense in ITC. The rest can stay as it is. Next interesting tab is the recording tab. I valued it as useful to put a default track name "ITC Track" in the Custom Track Name field and enable the naming extension by time and date. Quality settings are important. Sometimes we need to do a lot post processing. Therefor it is favorable to set the sample rate up to 95KHz instead 48KHz and 32 bit Float to preserve enough reserve in accuracy. For the same reasons i selected the highest quality settings for the Sample Rate Converter as shown. For copyright reasons Audacity comes without an MP3 encoder. We will do all our exports in MP3 since we want to save disk space and bandwith. Installing an MP3 encoder is not much of a problem because you can usethe famous Lame encoder. It's free and you can get it here. After installation it should be visible in the Libraries tab. If not use the buttons for FFmpeg Library to show Audacity the installation paths. The Effects are not important for the start but later we will use the Nyquist extensions. Thus it makes sense to check the respective box already. Now restart Audacity. In the lower left corner you should see now the new Project sample rate of 96.000 Hz. For the audio position check hours, minute, seconds and milliseconds and for the selected areas "Start and Length of selection". This is useful if me measure duration and spacing later. In the upper left corner you should see now Line input as default. Now you are done. Audacity is now ready for ITC.
  23. I revived an old idea I had long ago. I observed that the manifestation of spirit voices can be facilitated by acoustical material that resembles voices as close as possible while not being voices itself. I learned to use natural ocurring sounds and found some being very close to voices. VID_20210802_1556181.mp4 In this video I took some ordinary packaging foil, glued it to the end of a cardboard tube and scratched with my finger, trying to mimick speech rhythm's. The results are fascinating. Hear this german audio clips I extracted from a recording I made prior to the video. Since all messages were in german I put the translation as the description here. "Black Box": Black box.wav "Not bad what you made": Das ist nicht schlecht.wav "Work must be finished": Arbeit muss fertig werden.wav "We're nested in the body": Wir sitzen im Körper.wav "Now I have contact within the body": Hab jetzt im Körper Kontakt.wav "Very easy, also when you do it alone":Ganz einfach auch für Alleingang.wavy "You made voices talk": Stimmen sprechen hast du gemacht.wav "World Bridge. Everything is safe": Weltbrücke alles sicher.wav
  24. Hi all, Here are some new voices that came through to me yesterday while making contact with the North Station, using again, one of Sonia Rinaldi's method for voice contacts, thanks for watching. take care, Lance
