  • Thomas Edison: While it may not be common knowledge, in the 1920s Thomas Edison tried to invent a device capable of communicating with the dead. At the time, Edison wrote: “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.” Edison never succeeded with the invention, obviously, but it seems he did believe that it might be possible to capture disembodied voices with a recording device.
