In April 1982 George Meek held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. to make a momentous announcement: 1) "For the first time in the history of Western man we have electronic proof that the mind, memory banks, personality, and soul survive the death of the physical body" and 2) "An elementary start has been made toward the eventual perfection of an electromagnetic-etheric communications system that will someday permit those living on Earth to have telephone-like conversations with persons very much alive in higher levels of consciousness." George was, of course, referring to the groundbreaking audio evidence that was collected by William O'Neil via his hours upon hours of experimentation with the Spiricom device between 1979 and 1982 (experiments in which it was proclaimed that he was in clear, direct, lengthy, two-way communication with a deceased former physics professor - Dr. George Jeffries Mueller). ► WHO WAS GEORGE MEEK? George W. Meek was a retired industrialist who had revolutionized the air conditioning industry and had made a small fortune on a series of patents. With a commanding presence at six-foot-three, he possessed a powerful intentionality that was apparent whether watching him march straight to the podium for a speech or whether observing him quickly chunk down a complex research project into tasks that he could delegate to his staff. Like all men of good character, George had learned to still that little inner voice that advocates bad choices from day to day, until the voice had become weak and ineffective. He had learned to make the right choices again and again until they had become habit. Over the years his intentionality had shaped a comfortable and pleasant lifestyle for his family. It had also spurred the creation of the Metascience Foundation (Meek’s highly regarded, nonprofit enterprise to analyze the human spirit from a scientific angle). As he had planned for many years, George retired on his sixtieth birthday to fulfill a lifelong dream. He began traveling the world with his wife Jeannette to explore the deepest and richest spiritual truths hidden along the backroads of the Twentieth Century world. Something inside of him was driving him to get to the bottom of life's mysteries. He organized and funded research teams of medical doctors and scientists to travel to the forests of Southeast Asia, to crowded hospitals in China, and elsewhere in the world to observe such phenomena as energy healing and the use of acupuncture as a sole painkiller during major surgery. George was intrigued by the life energies that bristled and surged below the surface of our physical world (beyond the range of our five physical senses, and for the most part beyond the range of our scientific and technical instruments). George knew that these invisible energies played a major part in our lives and in our world, but most people didn't even know they existed. Even science didn't acknowledge their existence, and that made George uncomfortable. He committed himself to proving the existence of life energies — of spiritual reality — to a skeptical world. ► RESOURCES: • "The Ghost of 29 Megacycles" by John G.
