A Brief History of ITC – Instrumental Transcommunication
The history of ITC (two-way communication with ghosts and spirits through electronic devices) actually is quite lengthy, but not well known. Being on the fringe of ghost investigation and having only been somewhat accepted by the ghost hunting community as a whole, ITC has come to the forefront in the late 1900s, especially EVP. The following is simply some history of ITC phenomena of note:
1910: Priest Roberto Landell was seen communicating with spirits through a small box. Landell would speak to the box and the box would answer back. The priest would not share any information regarding the box or the spirit voices that were heard.
1920s: It is believed by many that
Thomas Edison, the great American inventor, had conceived of an Instrumental Transcommunication
communicate with the dead. Some have called it
1925: Brazilian Oscar d’Argonell communicates with the dead via the telephone and records the details of the calls, how they were made, etc.
1936: Spirit voices were captured on phonograph records by an American photographer by the name of Attila von Szalay.
1949: An old vacuum tube radio is used to record spirit
voices by Marcello Bacci of
1952: The spirit voice of Father Gemelli’s dad was heard speaking to him through a magnetophone while recording music.
1967: Latvian psychologist Dr Konstantin Raudive studied Juergenson’s methods, eventually recording tens of thousands of voices in a laboratory-like setting.
1971: Pye Records blocks out all radio and television communication frequencies and records Konstantin Raudive in studio by tape recorder. It was reported over 200 voices were recorded during the eighteen minute session, none of which were heard until playback.
1979: The Spiricom is developed by George Meek and Bill O’Neill. Four years later, over 20 hours of recordings containing the voice of deceased NASA scientist, Dr. Mueller, as well as schematics to the communication device were made available to the world.
1984: Ken Webster receives over 200 messages over his computer by a spirit names Thomas Harden who was a former resident of his house in the 1500s. The messages were typed onto the screen by the spirit.
1985: Spirit images were recorded on Klaus Schreiber’s TV, by aiming a video camera at the TV screen to form a feedback loop.
1980s-1990s: EVP is experimented with extensively by many people. Experiments with various methods continue, such as using water, computers, white and pink noise and more to record spirit voices.
2000: Stefan Bion offers EVPmaker as a free software download that computer users can use to create acoustic raw material for spirits to formulate into words and sentences.
2002: Frank Sumption conceives of the idea to build Frank’s Box as a way to use audio bits and white noise for spirits and ghosts to formulate words through the device.
2007: Frank’s Box as well as several
other ghost boxes make their way to the front of ghost communication
. By the end of the year, Joe’s Box, the MiniBox
and the Radio Shack Hack become available for more
people to experiment with ghost box communication.
