The purpose of this experiment is to determine the potential origins of EVPs. As most paranormal investigators know, EVP
– Electronic Voice Phenomena – is the occurrence of sounds or voices on an audio recording which were not produced
by known means. Often times these sounds or voices were not heard with the unaided physical ear of the participants during
the time of the recording. This suggests the possibility that the voices or sounds were produced directly on the recording
device via telekinesis, or were audible outside the range of human hearing, possibly produced by telekinetic manipulation
of sound waves.
Telekinesis has been associated with hauntings as the means through which a disincarnate spirit might affect his environment.
This experiment will take that hypothesis and take the next step. If a spirit outside of a physical body can produce EVPs,
it seems logical that the same spirit would have had the same ability while still incarnate.
Some EVP evidence seems to support the notion that living individuals can produce genuine EVP via paranormal means. Some
paranormal researchers have noticed EVPs that verbalized what they were thinking. EVPs that repeat what was spoken are also
possible examples of EVPs that might have been created by the thoughts of the living participants. Our PK-EVP experiment
is designed to help determine if the living (essentially spirits with a body) have the same abilities as those spirits who
no longer have a physical body.
For the purpose of these experiments it is presumed that life after death is a fact and that EVPs are in fact a real phenomena
produced through unknown paranormal means. Both presumptions are already strongly supported by the data collected by countless
paranormal researchers. As in psionic research, the participants in this experiment will be grouped based on their beliefs
regarding the phenomena as determined by a participant questionnaire.
To reduce the potential of actual ghost generated EVPs, participants are encouraged to choose quiet locations without reported
ghost activity and to hold the intention of recording their own thoughts, rather than the intention of recording ghost voices.
Outside that requirement, participants are asked to perform the EVP sessions as they normally would. (Such as question and
answer sessions, EVP baiting, monitoring equipment, white noise generators, ect.) Participants should review the sessions
as they normally would to look for EVPs. Participants are asked to mail a copy of the entire raw sessions, any EVPs they
recorded and notes on how the audio was adjusted (if at all) to detect the EVP, the EVP session questionnaire and the participant
questionnaire to the address on out contact page. Participants are asked to attempt at least 5 EVP sessions, but more are
acceptable and encouraged. All information should be sent, even if no EVPs were detected.
