"Belief in ghosts or spirits is part of human culture, and the telling of ghost stories has been traced back to ancient times. Today, according to the George H. Gallup International Institute, more than half the world's population believes in ghosts and at least a third of that group have actually seen one. Whether we like it or not, ghosts and spirits are still part of modern civilization, and most of us believe there is a lot more going on in the universe than our practical scientists and social leaders would admit. This rejected part of human experience, which is another side of reality, will not go away simply by closing our eyes to it. As we enter the new millennium, more and more people are opening their eyes to the Other Side. The number of paranormal experiences being reported has quadrupled in the last decade, and most organizations and researchers are swamped with new cases. Witnesses are much more willing to talk about such things, and they are actively looking for answers about what is really going on. The media and entertainment industries recognize this trend and have responded with an avalanche of articles and films on the subject. The surge of interest in the paranormal coupled with the growing emphasis on the global economy and emerging cultures makes this a truly planetary phenomenon. For the first time, local folklore is giving way to an international perspective that emphasizes the similarities and belief-altering components of these experiences." – Dennis William Hauck, author of Haunted Places: the National Directory and the International Directory of Haunted Places.

Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP) are paranormal audible events of unknown origin, which can be heard and captured in recordings on various types of electronic recording apparatus. The phenomenon has been captured using radios, televisions, tape recorders, telephones and answering machines, film, and a variety of digital equipment. Interest in EVP began in the1920s, when Thomas Edison suggested the possibility of constructing a machine to communicate with the dead. “It is possible to construct an apparatus,” he said in an interview in Scientific American, “which will be so delicate that if there are personalities in another existence or sphere who wish to get in touch with us in this existence or sphere, this apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and rapping and Ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication.” During World War II there was a rash of EVP recordings intercepted by military equipment, but serious research began with the electronic age in the 1970s with the work of Konstantin Raudive, a disciple of Carl Jung. This step-by-step guide shows how to set up EVP sessions, how to successfully capture EVP using a variety of equipment, and how to record and analyze the results using your home computer. CD includes white noise generation programs, sound recording and editing software, enhancing and de-noising software, and other utilities that help generate and work with EVP sounds.
