    A Note About EVPs

    Empty living room with shadows of people in itWhile conducting investigations involving EVPs and the review of those recorded voices. I find it somewhat funny how the human ego works.

    I watch as most investigators quickly assume that whatever is recorded has everything to do with them. It is true that sometimes the spirit has a message to impart to the investigator, however more often that not the message or part of the conversation, I find, is between the spirits and not intended for you at all. The investigator has forgotten or may have never considered that they have deliberately brought in a piece of equipment to be used to eavesdrop on the other side.

    Many times it is clear that the message in the EVPs is not for the investigator, I find sometimes this leads the investigator to automatically jump to the conclusion that the haunting is residual and not that of an intelligent spirit. Remember that spirits within a haunted building are not standing around waiting for you to show up, they are actually interacting with each other and doing things regardless if you are there or not, they don’t simply exist for your convenience.

    So the next time you label a spirit residual instead of intelligent consider the fact that it is not all about you.

In an interview with Scientific American, October 1920, Edison stated, “If our personality survives, then it is strictly logical or scientific to assume that it retains memory, intellect, other faculties, and knowledge that we acquire on this Earth. Therefore … if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected by our personality as it survives in the next life, such an instrument, when made available, ought to record something”.
