- When using a digital recorder it is not necessary to use an external microphone. I have found that it actually increases the amount of static recorded.

- When using a cassette recorder, be sure to use an external microphone and place the microphone as far away from the recorder as possible. Internal microphones can't get away from recording the gears working and placing the microphone as far from the recorder as possible helps reduce the gear noise.

- Omni-directional microphones work best for trying to record for EVP. Think of it like a sieve, whereas a Uni-directional microphone would be more like a straw. More liquid (sound) can get through a sieve at once than through a straw.

- Do NOT use the voice activated setting available on some models of recorders. It only works after sound begins, which means that an EVP can be cut off or completely missed.

- Be sure to have the sensitivity level on your gear/microphone (if available) set to the highest setting. This way you are sure to get even the faintest EVP.

- When using a cassette recorder use High Bias tapes. They give your tape recording an almost CD quality of sound and decrease background noise substantially. This is not to say that regular tapes won't work, they will. But using the better quality tapes makes it much easier to listen to after.

Evidence for non-local consciousness

by Stefan Brigati on Saturday, January 16, 2010 at 6:50am

A host of experiments reported at this conference (QM2003) verify the existence of some form of non-local consciousness, at least out to ten meters. Separate papers by Standish, Germine, Thaheld, Richards, Kozak and Wackermann (lead authors) report (i) EEG and MRI correlations in the brain of a human receiver with the (ii) visual stimulus of an isolated sender some ten meters away. We say that thi...

BEC media posited for consciousness

November 27, 2011
Assuming a material world, the non-local properties of consciousness (see below) suggest that it must exist in a macroscopic coherent quantum medium, called a Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) that is meters in extent and perhaps global. Known BECs such as super-fluids and superconductors only exist near absolute zero. To explain consciousness the BEC medium must exist at room temperature.

The presumption of a BEC medium to explain our visible, waking or physical consciousness underlies both the ...

Infrasound and the Paranormal

November 26, 2011
Through my mulling around on the internet in search for a typical investigative procedures, equipment, etc, I managed to find some very interesting skeptic-based information on infrasound and it's relevance to the paranormal.

What is infrasound? 

The more scientific jargon would be low frequency standing waves, or for the rest of the world, audio frequencies below 20Hz. Humans can naturally detect audio frequencies between 20Hz and 20,000Hz, so it is pertaining to sound that you cannot hear....
