<< EVP - BRIEF HISTORY
<< EVP - DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION

Now we ask an old age question that comes along with anything unexplained; is it really paranormal? Believers theorize that it might be of a paranormal origin while debunkers are trying to find possible rational explanation for EVP. In the following text, we will discuss several theories on what an EVP could be, where could it come from therefore if the mysterious audio originates from beyond the grave or are we simply failing to see something rational.
VOICES OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY

THOMAS EDISON & THE EVPThe idea of recording a ghost voice was first introduced in 1920's when Thomas Edison himself tried to invent a machine that would communicate with the dead. Edison believed that our personality might survive the death of the body as well as that we might be able to record something otherworldly only if we could create a delicate enough machine. Obviously, Edison never succeeded in his invention, but his idea lives on.


OVER A HUNDRED SPIRIT RECORDINGSOne of the early enthusiasts in recording ghost voices was an American photographer, Attila von Szalay. His attempts begun in the late 1930's, than continued through 1940's as well as 1950's. He had recorded many sounds and voices through years of his research. Although many argued mysterious voice recordings were actually random radio broadcasts that were accidentally picked up, this criticism was quickly and easily answered. Some of the recorded voices spo…

Voices of the dead are captured in an audio recording. In layman's terms, Electronic voice phenomenon is supposed to be exactly that; recorded voices from the afterlife. According to Wikipedia, electronic voice phenomenon or, shortly, EVP are sounds found on electronic recordings that are interpreted as spirit voices and might be intentionally or unintentionally recorded. 

DEFINITION & CLASSIFICATION
As mentioned, Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) is a sound or a voice which appears on a recording but has no known or scientific explanations for being recorded. Therefore, the sound or a voice is not heard during the recording session. Instead, it is heard later upon the reviewing of the tape. Mostly, such mysterious sounds are attributed to the spirit world since no known explanations could seemingly be found.
EVP varies from one to another; it could be an unfamiliar sound or an actual voice of a known or unknown person. The voice can vary in gender, tone, emotion or age; the voic…

Image
Friday the 13th is considered as one of the scariest dates of the year in the Western culture, making it the biggest competitor to Halloween. Friday the 13th is so infamous that not even Hollywood has not missed a chance to cash on by filming one of the greatest horror classics of all time and naming it Friday the 13th. What it is about that day that made it so infamous? Let's find out!
To start with, Friday the 13th occurs whenever the 13th of the month in Gregorian calendar falls on Friday. This happens every year at least once, however it could occur up to tree times a year.  As mentioned, in Western civilizations, Friday the 13th is considered to be quite an unlucky day. Why is it considered unlucky? Well, the origins are actually pretty unclear.

However, the fear of the number 13, which is directly connected to the Friday the 13th, c…

Mysterious Black Object Orbiting the Earth?

Image
Mysterious black object was detected orbiting around Earth, therefore giving it a title of a satellite. The mystery was created due to the speculation that the object is neither of human or natural origin. So, where did it come from? Naturally, people started to theorize that the unusual black satellite might be of an extraterrestrial origin.  The satellite was appropriately named the Black Knight.
Allegedly, the first person to detect the Black Knight was a scientist Nikola Tesla himself. Rumors have it that Tesla received strange signals in 1899. Nowadays, it is theorized that the strange signals Nikola Tesla heard were actually coming from no other but the mysterious satellite. However, it was not until 1940's when the satellite finally got its recognition. The Black Knight satellite has been transmitting signals for over 50 years now. As of now, NASA managed to photograph the mysterious satellite weighing at least 10 tons several times. Sadly, it is believed that the Black Knig…
