Stanley Jolet Announces Release of Paranormal Investigations


Schriever, LA (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

With the hope of contacting his mother on the other side, author Stanley Jolet embarked on a paranormal journey that found him contacting the deceased in Louisiana, Las Vegas, Europe and the Caribbean. “Paranormal Investigations: The Cajun Ghost Hunter Chronicles” (published by Trafford Publishing) is a collection of stories about his trip across the globe to investigate paranormal activity and what happened once contact had been made.

“In my quest to contact my mother, I decided to visit historical, haunted sites around the globe,” Jolet says. “Join me, my wife, our son and my wife’s brother as we take you through the world of the unknown.”

Readers follow Jolet as he and his companions use instrumental telecommunication (ITC) and electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) to listen to the voices of the deceased. With bone-chilling description, the author takes readers deep behind the veil and shows them that, if they are just willing to listen, they might be able to speak with the spirits around them.

“I want readers to know that anyone, anywhere, anytime can use the same equipment and software that I use and communicate with the spirits of their loved ones,” he says. “Readers can also venture to historical sites such as battlefields and old forts and get a glimpse of history by recording the residual voices of spirits still haunting the areas.”

An excerpt from “Paranormal Investigations”:

“Maybe that is why people think that miracles occur – because our loved ones are keeping a watchful eye over us and helping us in our daily lives. They could be the angels that have been recorded throughout history as helping people and nations in their hours of need. For example, maybe Joan of Arc had the gift of hearing spirit voices without using an EVP recorder and these spirits gave her intelligent advice on how to defeat the English at Patay so that Charles VI could be crowned king of France. Was this really a case of divine intervention or spirit manipulation? Maybe it’s a little of both happening at the same time!”

Do You Hear Voices in the White Noise?

(PRWEB) January 5, 2005

The new Michael Keaton movie White Noise opens on Jan 7 and is sure to scare audiences with its spooky theme centering around voices of the dead caught on tape and weird ghostly images appearing on TV screens. But, as audiences leave the theater, many will be wondering if this is a real phenomenon or just a Hollywood creation. The surprising fact is that people have been capturing these strange voices since the early 1950s, yet very little is known about where they actually come from.

EVP or Electronic Voice Phenomenon is a way some say you can communicate with the dead using average household electronic devices like portable tape players and digital voice recorders, your video camera and even a coffee pot or your computer. Some say you need white noise such as a fan or running water to record properly and give the ‘spirits’ something to create their voices from, but many claim all you have to do is tape yourself asking questions of the dear departed and when you play it back you might just hear them respond.

Supporters like Tom and Lisa Butler of the American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomenon, or AAEVP, say that just about any recording device will do and they have thousands of samples taken by people of all walks of life from around the world. Skeptics claim it is all simply intercepted radio transmissions or active imaginations. While radio transmission is a prime suspect in this world of over crowded airwaves, there has been scientific research conducted to explore this possibility with some startling results.

In 1971, engineers at Britain’s Pye Records decided to set up an experiment with the famous European psychologist and EVP researcher Dr. Konstantin Raudive at their special studio that blocked out all radio and television transmissions. The conditions for the experiment were quite strict and Dr. Raudive was not allowed to touch any of the equipment or make any modifications whatsoever. The good Dr. was allowed only to speak into a microphone during the 18 minutes of recording. Everyone present agreed they had heard no voices or any unexplainable sounds at all during the experiment, yet when they played the tape back, over 200 voices could be heard.

Also in 1970 another British researcher, David Ellis who researched EVP as his degree project at Cambridge University wondered about the possibility of radio interference. Setting up an experiment in a radio wave blocking room made of copper sheets called the Faraday cage, Ellis sought to prove once and for all if radio waves could cause EVP. Researchers at the University agreed; if he didn’t capture a voice it would prove radio waves had been the culprit all along. To everyone’s surprise, Ellis captured a definite voice. Since the Faraday cage does not block sound waves, a stray voice from outside was blamed and further study was canceled. EVP enthusiasts still ask why there was not another experiment to confirm these unexplainable results at such a prestigious university.

In 1982 Scottish researcher Alexander MacRae, a college lecturer in microelectronics and NASA voice recognition researcher, heard strange growls and groans as he worked on his biometric invention, the Alpha. MacRae used a tape recorder to take his notes and was surprised to hear voices, including that of his father when he played them back. After years of research and thousands of collected samples using the Alpha, MacRae concluded “All the utterances are short; and each one begins at its beginning and ends at its end; each utterance is complete. Now that cannot be random. I have worked out that the odds against all the phrases being short and the right length happening by chance are of the order of a trillion to one.”

Sound engineers and scientists in a specially designed studio, a noted psychologist, researchers at Cambridge and a NASA voice expert all concluded radio waves were not the cause of EVP. So what could it be? Are these really spirits of the dead contacting us through some inter-dimensional phone system?

Dr. Robert Carroll, noted skeptic and author of the “Skeptics Dictionary” and SkepDic.com, says no; it’s all in our heads. The human brain is simply making sense out of the chaos of noise and people hear what they want to hear. He quotes psychologist Jim Alcock: “Perception is a very complex process, and when our brains try to find patterns, they are guided in part by what we expect to hear; The brain puts together the visual cue and the auditory input, and we actually “hear” what we are informed is being said, even though without that information, we could discern nothing.”

EVP researchers say that while this does often happen, real EVP is much different and most people can agree with what is being said by many voices they tape. Popular Internet blogger Regmanabq, in his blog EVP – the Electronic Voice Phenomenon(http://evprecording.blogspot.com), reports that this may not be the case with at least one famous EVP sample currently featured in White Noise movie trailers and TV commercials.

“It seems the now famous recording of deceased Ruth Baxter supposedly taken in 2003 saying “I shall see you no more” was actually taken many years ago by EVP guru and founder of the AAEVP Sarah Estep in a lighthouse used as a civil war hospital and prisoner of war camp. For years EVP enthusiasts agreed this recording said, “I was seeing the war”, yet Hollywood now has everyone convinced differently.“

Is it the giant letters on the screen telling us what is being said that makes us hear these voices? Could it be radio or TV interference or even cell phone conversations that are mysteriously recorded somehow? Or can you really talk with the dead over your voice recorder or television? The simple truth is that no one has any proof, not the skeptics or the believers. It could be ghosts, it could be radio transmissions or it could just be in your head. What do you hear in the white noise?

Tonbandstimmen-Forschung in Wien

Verein für Tonbandstimmen in Wien

Ganz kurz nur: ich gebe allen recht, die sagen, daß Gläser- und Tische rücken gefährlich ist. Vor allem weil dann alles echt außer Kontrolle gerät und man keinen Überblick mehr hat.

Dazu möchte ich allen, die ernsthaft Kontakt haben wollen den Verein für Tonbandstimmenforschung in

Wien 6., Eisvogelgasse 4

empfehlen. Zum einen ist es sehr hilfrreich und tröstlich wenn man weiß, daß es denen, die die physische Welt verlassen haben, “drüben” gut geht. Der Verein ist somit auch einen Anlaufstelle für Trostsuchende. Das ist aber nur eines der Aufgaben dieses Vereins. Zum anderen sind wir bemüht über die Tondbandeinspielungen so viel wie möglich über das sogenannte Jenseits und das “Leben” drüben zu erfahren und wie die dortige “Welt” aussieht und welche Aufgaben die “Verstorbenen drüben” haben. Und wie wir den Kontakt verbessern können. U.s.w.

Wir haben zwar jede Menge Mitglieder, doch sind wir nicht mit einer Homepage im Internet vertreten.

Unsere Zusammenkünfte finden jeden Dienstag um 18:00 Uhr in der Eisvogelgasse 4, im 1. Stock rechts statt. Jeder der ernsthaft interessiert ist und auch Trost sucht, ist herzlich willkommen. Einen Kassettenrecoder mitzubringen wäre hilfreich.

Ich bitte Dich hiermit, dieses Mail weiterzuleiten. Auch darum, weil Tonbandeinspielungen oder Tonbandstimmen ungefährlich sind, solange man nicht labil ist und mit beiden Beinen auf dem Boden steht.

Ganz kurz noch zum Verein. Die Obfrau ist Maria Manov. Den Verein kann man nur schriftlich erreichen, da es ein gemietetes Vereinslokal ist – ohne direktem Telefon.

Mit lieben Grüßen – und vielen Dank daß Du so viele Menschen mit Rat und Tat unterstützt.

Gabriele L.
