Only Thomas Edison knew for certain whether he believed in ghosts and the paranormal or not. But he was quoted as saying he did believe that if our personalities do transcend death and continue to exist in another dimension or sphere of existence, then it should be possible to construct an instrument to record the voices of these disincarnate people. Here is that quote by Mr. Edison “I don’t claim that our personalities pass on to another existence or sphere,” he told Scientific American. “I don’t claim anything because I don’t know anything about the subject. For that matter, no human being knows. But I do claim that it is possible to construct an apparatus 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, the apparatus will at least give them a better opportunity to express themselves than the tilting tables and raps and ouija boards and mediums and the other crude methods now purported to be the only means of communication.”This quote was made in the October 1920 issue of Scientific American™.
It is my opinion that our personalities do transcend death, and continue to exist in another realm of reality. And if it is true that our personalities do continue to exist then I believe EVP offers the most compelling evidence for this existence.
