Everyone Can Talk to Ghosts With a Computer or Smart Phone


(**Admittedly, a fun parlor game and perhaps someone can have some luck and get something out of it that they can apply**)

According to the speaker that I listened to recently from the WindBridge Institute, one does not need to go to a haunted place to speak to spirits, you can make the spirits come to you. How do you think seances and mediums have been doing this for centuries?

There's some interesting and free software online that makes it possible to work on your skills at speaking to the other side. Have fun with these and report back any results. I'm curious.

EVP maker program

Geist Chat: Well, seriously a program that supposedly allows you to text with ghosts...

This program is interesting. You can ask a question and listen for a minute or a minute and a half, writing down every word you make out and then look and see if those words line up with the question you asked.

Now, for fun, check this out.

  1. Um.... I'm leery about these sorts of thing, mostly because I don't know anything about the program. If it's anything like other products on the market, it's a random word generation algorithm. Or, worse, it's designed to intuit your imput and respond accordingly. Without understanding the software better, I'd say it's a fun toy and little else. Like the box used on Ghost Adventures, which the maker even says is for entertainment purposes.

  3. In our new book, Synchronicity and the Other Side, we feature a chapter on electronic communication with the hereafter. Rob

  4. I have to say that the speaker wasn't too pleased with my reaction to the whole thing and yes it is a random algorithm generator. It's very hilarious to listen to. In fact, I have a video of it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDmMBWO-BMY
    I should add that to this post.

  5. Yeah what's with the hair background? It has nothing to do with anything and it's not even nice hair.

  6. It was me being silly. My readers know my sense of humor. Perhaps this isn't the right blog for you, but it does warn at the top that this is a mind carnival. I don't ever present information in too dry a manner. Perhaps Fox news is more up your alley.

  7. The Geist Chat is weird... let's give it a try on our next ghost hunt, tee hee!

  8. "ow, eye, eye, ow, ow, ear, eye, ow, ow" (I'm predicting what it will say based on the program we tested)

  9. Too shy to provide a name, Anonymous?

    Well, if you don't like the hair background (which IS nice hair, buy the way), just check back again later and you'll probably find an all-new background to hate.

  10. Nice hair!

    And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

  11. This background, as everyone knows, changes a few times a day. I don't like anyone to get complacent about what might be there. I like to keep y'all a little uneasy.

  12. I didn't even realize I was typing on your hair. I feel like I have just been brainwashed listening to that clip.
    It does seem to favor "oww" a lot. Maybe if robots ever develop souls this will be a handy thing to have.

    I do medical transcription and unfortunately the industry changed to let computers translate and I have to clean up their shit. Here's just an example of one today. The computer typed "She has been taking her suicidal supplements daily." It's supposed to be "fish oil supplements." This would go into people's medical records if I weren't there to clean up the computer's mess. Oh, and I get paid 30% of what I used to be paid just to take more time to clean up the computer's translation than it would take to type it myself from scratch. It's love/hate with computers.

  15. I'm with Cullen...but if such a thing were possible, I'd be worried that this might be like a ouija board and just another way to invite spirits into your home and life. Of course, I'm a worry-wort like that.

    Sorry about the deletion, I had a spelling error.

    I totally get that for people. Some folks, for religious upbringing or perhaps cultural influences, are worried about talking to bad spirits or demons or whatnot. I get that. For anyone who believes in evil and demons, definitely don't tinker with it. It can really unbalance folks once they get that thought in their head.

  17. I have this on my phone. Have to be careful though as it scares the crap out of my son!

    You sound like the kind of mom I am. I once got my son and I locked in a cemetery.

  19. OMG...that is awesome and totally something I could see myself doing!

  20. I will have to write about that experience. We had to climb the tall fencing and walk through a horrible part of town to get to a phone.

  21. Awwww! I am sure it is a great story!

  22. Hi! Thanks for coming to the talk. I like the video! If people are interested in the science behind the use and evaluation these types of automated systems I recently published a paper in the Journal of Scientific Exploration which you can download here:
