Not only is this a "Sandwich looks like Jesus" - only with audio, it's even worse when you hint people at the context in which that noise is
supposed to be something else than...noise.
They're still not doing that good of a job at guessing.
Also, why are the statements always so short and mysterious, why aren't they telling a proper story?
Are they all brain damaged?
The actual physics involved are complicated, but the bottom line is that these "people" don't have vocal chords or mouths or any physical equipment
that can allow them to make audible sounds. They have to use other sounds (in the case of environmental audio manifestations) or material particles
(in the case of EVPs) to create audio sounds that will represent words to the ears and minds of material sentient beings. They use already existing
natural environmentally produced sound waves (like wind cutting through eaves, water dripping, bits of bird chirps, rustling of leaves, etc) to
produce words and sounds that you can hear with your ears, and they arrange and rearrange magnetic particles on tape, and line up highs and lows
within digital files, when communicating via EVPs. Some of them are better at it than others are - just as you'd expect.
When communicating directly to a single person (one-to-one) they place the "words" directly into the data stream that is heading to the part of the
brain that processes hearing, just as they place their full-spectrum dynamic image into the data stream that's heading to the part of the brain that
processes sight. This is why the one-on-one manifestation is the most realistic, comprehensive, and generally lengthy. It's telepathic in nature,
which is a lot easier, mechanically, to put together.
EVPs are short and often clumsy because it takes real experience and physical finesse to master the process. The environmentally contained audio
manifestation is the hardest to accomplish, and this is why they're knocks and bangs and moans at best. That said, each form of audio manifestation
has its value.
Each form accomplishes something different for the discarnate entity. Actual messages from loved ones overwhelmingly involve the use of telepathy
between the deceased and the target of the message. Environmental audio is used to make a "statement" that will be heard by more than one person -
eliminating doubt that the sound did occur.
EVPs are a sort of blend between the two. They are relatively recent - since audio equipment's invention, of course - and while they're still
difficult to produce, they're much easier to manage than the environmentally produced snippets of controlled audio, and they can be fashioned into
actual words. The bitch is in the time it takes to make them versus the amount of content needed for the EVP to "mean something" to the person(s)
being targeted with the message being produced. It's rightly assumed that most EVP messages are viewed by researchers in the field as contextually
relevant to the specific moment in time when the EVP appears. As a direct answer to their question of statement. The "spirit" does what it can to
get the imprint configured in time for it to be available when the ghost hunter brings it up for replay. Not much time to be eloquent in most
These are people, and it's a real effort to do what they're doing in these cases. Most of these folks aren't as eager to prove that they're there
as some of them are. They see us in the same way that we see fetuses resting within their mommas' wombs. They're curious, and they like to watch us
kick and adjust under our mom's abdomen skin. But, they already know that we exist, and that we'll be along in a little while - just as was the case
for each one of them. Most people just don't see the urgency in proving something to those of us who will figure it all out soon enough anyway.
Besides, they had to wait to find out, and why make it any less of a wait for anyone else? Now, how many times have we all run into that way of
thinking in our own daily lives. I run into that mindset all the time. People don't change just because their bodies stopped working. They're still
themselves when all is said and done.
