Prior to filming of the upcoming 2nd series of Northern Ireland's Greatest Haunts, PSI have been looking at various areas of new research. Seemingly having had a degree of success with previous experimentation into Audio/Visual phenomena, we decided to advance to the next stage in EVP research. Moving away from conventional EVP capture methods, the team worked together on refining an idea originally conceived and developed by Tony Armstrong. This new technique blends spiritualism and technology in order to see if this would yield any new quantifiable data which may support the theory of a form of disincarnate intelligence.
Known within the team as the PSI Transcommunication experiment, and although in the early stages of development, this research has already yielded some fascinating results, some of which may be included in an episode of the 2nd TV series airing in November. Working with Mark Cowden, the aim is to refine the experiment further, adding controls where necessary to see if the results can be replicated.
In addition, Darren has also been working on some ideas on visual experimentation, which can also be seen during the series. The team is currently awaiting the delivery of a new piece of equipment which will enable us to pursue our research in this area. More detail on all of the above to be announced following the broadcast of the series and as the results are open to interpretation, we look forward to feedback from the paranormal community.
