We hold the firm conviction that one day soon the technologies that result from these discoveries  will allow us to communicate with what is now considered to be ‘the spirit realm'."    Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health (LACH) at the University of Arizona 

Researchers at LACH have demonstrated that detection of those whose bodies have physically died is possible. This now occurs in optimally controlled environments with ultra-sensitive technological instruments that are collectively termed The SoulPhone™.


Electromagnetic fields, light, sounds and images of hypothesized collaborating spirits have been captured in proof-of-concept studies. The challenge is to amplify their signals while minimizing background noise and other interfering signals.

Dr. Schwartz stated, “In light of the compelling evidence and rationale for such technologies, the question is no longer, ‘Is spirit communication possible?’ The question is now, ‘What will it take to engineer a technology to make spirit communication extremely reliable, practical and affordable?’”


The SoulPhone includes four categories of technologies and devices:

SoulSwitch™ is a binary switch designed to allow ‘a spirit’ to communicate with humans by signaling Yes/No answers.

SoulKeyboard™ uses a combination of SoulSwitches arranged in the format of a keyboard. Just as with a standard keyboard, each key represents a letter, number or special character and has a corresponding binary switch. When a switch is activated by a "deceased" person, it is equivalent to a key being pressed by a human operator. 

SoulVoice™ is envisioned to allow humans to hear those whose physical bodies have died.

SoulVideo™ will hopefully enable humans to see visual images of those who are living in the next phase of life.

The SoulPhone prototype devices are an integrated set of complementary components. Optical, audio, video, electrical and software engineering skills are necessary for implementing these components. 

Commercialization to reduce deployment costs for full product rollout will follow completion of the working prototype.
