Thomas Edison on the Use of ITC to Communicate with Spirits

Thomas Edison was working on an apparatus to communicate with Spirits that was intended to record communication…

“I am working on the theory that our personality exists after what we call life leaves our present material bodies. If our personality dies, what’s the use of a hereafter? What would it amount to? It wouldn’t mean anything to us as individuals. If there is a hereafter which is to do us any good, we want out personality to survive, don’t we?

If our personality survives, then it is strictly logical and scientific to assume that it retains memory, intellect, and other faculties and knowledge that we acquire on earth. Therefore, if personality exists, after what we call death, it is reasonable to conclude that those who leave this earth would like to communicate with those they have left here. Accordingly, the thing to do is furnish the best conceivable means to make it easy for them to open up communication with us, and then see what happens.

I am proceeding on the theory that in the very nature of things, the degree of material or physical power possessed by those in the next life must be extremely slight; and that, therefore, any instrument designed to be used to communicate with us must be super-delicate – as fine and responsive as human ingenuity can make it. For my part, I am inclined to believe that our personality hereafter will be to affect matter. If this reasoning be correct, then, if we can evolve an instrument so delicate as to be affected, or moved, or manipulated – whichever term  you want to use – by our personality as it survives in the next life, such an instrument, when made available, ought to record something.”
