The book begins with an introduction to EVP, which involves capturing unexplained human-like voices on electronic devices. It caters to both beginners and experienced ghost hunters, providing guidance on using recording equipment, handling audio interference, and communicating with ghosts during EVP sessions. Steve emphasises the importance of maintaining objectivity and avoiding confirmation bias when analysing EVP recordings to draw one's conclusions about their validity.
Readers can then explore the potential origins of EVP, as well as related concepts such as Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC), Direct Voice Phenomenon (DVP), and scalar waves. The book discusses many theories including the suggestion that EVPs may result from the practitioner's subconscious thoughts being imprinted through psychokinesis rather than from spirits, and scalar waves may be involved in EVPs and other paranormal phenomena.
'Whispers From The Other Side' also delves into the history of EVP research, from séances in the 1840s to attempts to communicate with spirits using technology. It provides an overview of the modern EVP movement and the establishment of various research associations. Technological advancements have made capturing EVPs more accessible, with the development of ITC devices and handheld digital audio recorders.
Steve discusses various methods and tools for paranormal investigators to capture EVPs. Digital audio recorders, smartphones, laptops with audio software, and EVP-specific devices like spirit boxes and EVP laser microphones are all options for capturing EVPs. The effectiveness of these methods and devices is debated within the paranormal community, with some believing they enable communication with spirits while others dismiss them as random noise.
A later chapter provides information on how to conduct EVP sessions to communicate with spirits. It explains the passive and active methods of EVP sessions and provides tips for optimising recordings to capture high-quality EVPs. The chapter also discusses the use of radio noise and infrasound in paranormal research and their possible connections to paranormal experiences.
Read guidance on how to review and analyse audio recordings in EVP research. It discusses the phenomenon of pareidolia and auditory pareidolia and suggests ways to validate EVPs by removing context and getting feedback from others. The book also discusses the controversy surrounding whether or not to manipulate or enhance audio in EVP research and provides advice on how to enhance audio recordings using audio editing software. Steve explains how to analyse audio recordings for EVP research, including understanding key terms such as frequency, amplitude, wavelength, and pitch.
The final chapter of the book discusses the classification of EVPs into two types: Transformative and Opportunistic. Transformative EVPs are made up of random background noise manipulated to form words, while Opportunistic EVPs use existing human voices or pre-recorded audio to form new words or sentences. The chapter also discusses various classification scales used to grade EVPs, including the Raudive Scale, the AA-EVP System, and the KM System, with the latter being the most widely used and accepted classification system today.
'Whispers From The Other Side' is an essential resource for anyone interested in EVP research. It provides an in-depth understanding of EVPs, their potential origins, and various tools and techniques for capturing and analysing them.
