regular feature will deal with research that is being done around
the world relating to Spirit related phenomena. If there are any
specific topics you would like to know more about, please let
us know. The following article talks a bit about the research
being done by Mark Macy. We have had the opportunity to meet Mr.
Macy a few times and have attended a few of his lectures. We hope
that you enjoy the article.
Macy is involved full-time in spirit communication through technology.
With colleagues from eight countries, in 1995 Macy founded a network
of scientists and researchers devoted to building a reliable bridge
with Beyond. Results of their research include images of spirit
beings coming through televisions, computers, and photographic
film; transdimensional dialogs via radio and telephone; and actual
text files planted on computer hard drives by invisible hands,
all providing a view of the next world unprecedented in its clarity
has a lab in his home near Boulder, Colorado, where he conducts
experiments almost daily and hosts regular meetings of his local
research team. He has configured his equipment to a large degree
on the advice of spirit colleagues, as specified during phone
dialogs and radio contacts. Currently he is receiving color images
of departed loved ones and colleagues through the use of advanced
subtle energy technologies.
1992 Macy has learned that the key to spirit communication through
technology is not the technology, but rather a resonance achieved
among beings of like-mind on both sides of the veil. He was told
in 1994, via radio: "It can only work when the vibrations
of those present are in complete harmony and when their aims and
intentions are pure."
1992, Macy has written and/or published three journals (INFOnews,
Contact!, and Transdimension) and two books (Conversations Beyond
the Light, and Breakthroughs in Technical Spirit Communication.
His third book, Miracles in the Storm, will be published in November
by Penguin Books. He has been interviewed by many newspapers,
magazines, and radio talk show hosts, and has appeared on several
TV programs, including "Sightings" and "The Other
Side". He has given numerous seminars and presentations in
North America, South America and Europe since his immersion in
Macy was an agnostic until a battle with colon cancer set him
on a spiritual path in 1988. Since then he has committed himself
to learn as much as he can about spiritual reality and the afterlife.
miracle that's too good to be "true"

the past decade I've been involved in a young field of research
called ITC, or instrumental transcommunication. I was a founding
member of INIT-the International Network for Instrumental Transcommunication-a
panel of scientists and researchers organized in 1995 to explore
this modern miracle. I've experienced:
world's first audible dialogs across dimensions through the Spiricom
device developed by my close friend and colleague, the late American
researcher George Meek.
* heavenly choruses that emerged from the radios of Italian experimenter
* wispy voices of nature spirits reporting through the telephone
of German experimenter Friedrich Malkhoff.
* pictures of departed ITC experimenters delivered through the
television of German experimenter Adolf Homes.
* voices of departed loved ones captured on tape or in computer
to bring comfort to grieving family members sitting in on experiments
of Jacques Blanc-Garin of France and Sonia Rinaldi of Brazil.
* TV pictures received by German experimenter Klaus Schreiber-pictures
of his deceased daughter Karin and of famous personalities such
as scientist Albert Einstein and French actress Romy Schneider.
These pictures would sometimes emerge slowly out of a boiling
fog of static on Mr Schreiber's TV screen.
* similar ITC results from the work of German experimenter Hans
* a three-page letter to French ITC researchers, written by Jules
Verne a century after his death and delivered through the FAX
machine of Luxembourg experimenters Maggy and Jules Harsch-Fischbach,
describing the famous French author's stunning transition into
a magnificent dream world after many years of disease and suffering.
* pictures of spirit-world landscapes through the televisions
and computers of the same Luxembourg experimenters.
most important for me personally, since 1994 I have enjoyed phone
dialogs with Konstantin Raudive, the highly regarded pioneer of
technical spirit communication who died in 1979, and also radio
contacts from many spirit colleagues. These intelligent, good-natured
invisibles have shared a wide range of important information with
me--some personal, divulging names of people whom I can trust
(or not); some technical in nature, outlining ingenious systems
of special communications equipment to improve voice contacts;
and some of a global nature, stressing the dire need, for example,
of sheltering today's children from the violence that is so prevalent
in today's world, or warning of the dangers of drug use that threaten
not only this lifetime, but our future lives as well.
I call "Enhanced ITC" is a wonder to behold. It involves
frequent, wide-ranging communication between a dedicated, capable
team of spirit beings and either a single experimenter or a cohesive
group of researchers. The identities of the spirit beings are
known, the information is positive and helpful in nature, and
the frequent contacts from these spirit colleagues include some
of the following:
* telephone dialogs,
* extended (5 seconds or longer) voice messages through radio,
* pictures on television that either appear clearly on the screen
and remain for at least several frames, or which build up steadily
into a reasonably clear picture over multiple frames,
* text and/or picture files appearing in computer memory or planted
on disk or similar recordable media,
* text and/or images through FAX.
contacts, which were received by European experimenters for more
than a decade and were enjoyed by INIT researchers collectively
from 1995 through 1997, are giving modern researchers a view of
unprecedented clarity into life after death.
you might imagine, more than a few minds have been boggled. You
see, we each have a mental model or roadmap of reality in our
mind. That model or roadmap is pieced together of all the things
we've seen and experienced in our lives, the concepts we've learned
in school, and the things we experience each day in the media.
It becomes our own personal version of "truth," and
everyone has a unique version of "truth." As new information
comes into our mind, we try to accommodate it by stretching our
mental model in an effort to fit the new information in. Everyone's
model will stretch a bit, but everyone's model also has a limit
as to how far out of shape it can be stretched. I call that the
"boggle point." Once our mind reaches the boggle point,
it snaps shut. It doesn't matter then how much evidence or even
good solid proof accompanies the new information; our mind is
unable to accept it because it's been boggled.
make matters worse, ITC communications depend on a "contact
field," which is a pool of attitudes and beliefs of ITC researchers
and our spirit colleagues. If our minds are all resonant and in
harmony, then the contact field is stable and clear, and our spirit
friends can work their magic-planting voices, images and text
into our technology. If there is dissonance, however, the contact
field becomes unstable and foggy, and the contacts dry up. That
puts us in a "Catch-22" position. We'd all love to have
scientists participate in our experiments, but if they're skeptical,
they disturb the contact field and ruin our results.
ironic that as a result of boggled minds and the skepticism and
dissonance they have caused, we can justifiably say that many
of the best contacts we INIT members have received over the years
are in fact TOO good. Clear images from the world of spirit are
rejected because they are TOO clear. Detailed descriptions by
our spirit friends of the magnificent worlds they inhabit are
maybe it's time to take a step backwards, gain people's trust,
and wash away some of the doubt. What we need today is an ITC
system that allows very simple ITC contacts in mixed company-
a system that isn't so reliant on the fragile contact field. That's
what I've been working on lately.
a device in my Colorado lab called a "Luminator," which
pulls in ambient air from the room; modifies the molecular characteristics
of the air as it passes over a set of tuned, water-filled coils;
and blows the altered air back out into the room. The device is
said to give electrons a reverse spin, among other effects, according
to the inventor, Patrick Richards of Michigan.
originally designed the device as one of a series of apparatuses
to be used to improve the atmosphere in office environments, but
with use it became apparent that the Luminator had some unusual
side effects. For one thing, people's illnesses and imbalances
seemed to abate as they spent time in its presence.
experimented with successive designs of the device, altering the
quantity and frequencies of the internal coils, and at the present
time there are eight unique Luminators in use around the world.
All but mine are used for healing. I use my Luminator for ITC
one of two units at the present time which have another highly
unusual side effect: When a person is photographed alone in the
presence of my Luminator, there's a 50-50 chance that person won't
be alone in the photograph. Departed loved ones, late colleagues,
spirit guides, and other nonphysical beings manifest on the film,
superimposed over the face of the human subject, about half the
time I take pictures in my lab.
these transphotographic results only with a Polaroid 600 camera.
I've tried a 35mm Nikon, a digital camera, and a camcorder with
no apparent "paranormal" effects in the final images.
In any case, Polaroid photography has a couple of advantages over
the other methods: 1) The photograph develops in a few seconds
as I and my subjects watch; there is no waiting. 2) The photograph
can't be manipulated in the Polaroid process as it can with other
means of photography, especially with the computer software available
the accompanying images:
1999 September 20, I was photographed in my lab by my good friend
and colleague Jack Stucki in the presence of the Luminator. When
the Polaroid 600 picture developed (1), it was not my face in
the image, but a person who resembled my father, Blair Macy (2).
Upon further analysis of the photo it became clear that the facial
features were not symmetrical. They eyes, ears, mouth, cheekbones,
and forehead all were radically different on the left and right
sides of the face. When I covered up the right half, the left
side of the face was clearly my father Blair. When I covered the
left half, however, the image on the right resembled Willis Harman
(3), the late president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences who
had been a friend of mine and had maintained a deep interest in
my work-ITC research-up to his death in January 1997. (I've been
told through various instrumental and mediumistic transcommunication
sources that Dr Harman's enthusiasm and support of ITC did not
die with the physical body, and he is supporting my research.)
enlargements on a color copier, showed one to my mother, and sent
another to Willis's wife Charlene Harman in Stanford, California.
Mom recognized Dad immediately. Charlene Harman recognized her
husband Willis, too. Upon first glance at the image, before reading
the accompanying explanation that was sent, she gasped and muttered
(according to her friend Mary Lear), "My goodness! Willis
has found a way to come through!" ( Place Pictures)
image has been shown to many people who knew Blair Macy or Willis
Harman, with mixed results. Some recognize one of the two men
instantly, and others see the likeness after studying the picture
for awhile. Sill others see no resemblance whatsoever.
make it easier to recognize one face or the other, I took the
original image to a technician in a photo lab, who made an enlarged
internegative with a 35mm camera and macro lens. The technician
printed a blow-up (4) and a reverse blow-up (5)-actually, several
copies of each.
cut a few of these blow-ups and reverse blow-ups in two, approximately
down the middle of the face, and matched up the pieces to come
up with a "Blair Macy" image (6) and a "Willis
Harman" image (7). The resemblance is striking to most people
who knew the two men.
6. 7. 8.
in the original image and the blow-ups, a faint forehead can be
seen above the "Blair Macy" half of the face. That forehead
belongs to me (8). It is as though my head was displaced from
my neck and replaced by the composite head of my father and Willis
Harman…all with no discomfort of any kind on my part!
of the photos produced by this method in my lab have a similar
effect in which the physical person's face is transparent and
faded while the spirit face appears solid and clear.
images aren't real pretty, but they provide undeniable proof,
as far as I'm concerned, that our world is superimposed by invisible
realms inhabited by intelligent human beings-so-called "spirits"
living in the so-called "spirit worlds." The fact that
the Luminator makes the invisible worlds visible under unpredictable
conditions could be the first step toward unboggling minds and
allowing for the spread of ITC around the world. That's my hope,
at any rate.
