Technology Provides Scientific Evidence of the Afterlife

The use of electronic devices such as audio and video recorders to record voices and images of people in the afterlife (termed Instrumental Transcommunication or ITC) has provided a bridge between our physical reality and the parallel world where it demonstrates that people who have passed away are continuing to live. However, despite mounting evidence from these recordings, notable scientists refuse to study, investigate, or share insights into the hypothesis of survival of consciousness.

IPATI’s proposal is to record and validate afterlife voices and images within controlled protocols that ensure the veracity of the results to once and for all demonstrate the survival of consciousness after bodily death. IPATI seeks to remove discussions of the survival of consciousness from religion into science.


 This research project will use audio and video equipment to record the voices and images of the deceased children of 12 families. The participants will be the mothers. Having the mothers validate the recordings will provide evidence the children are living in what we call the afterlife, demonstrating the survival of consciousness after bodily death. To give solace to parents who are grieving is only part of what ITC may offer. ITC provides the possibility of submitting the results achieved in those recordings for scientific investigation.


  • The study will seek to lessen the grief of 12 mothers who have lost children by demonstrating to them that their children are alive and well.
  • It will prove scientifically that through the use of electronic devices, we can communicate with the world of those who have passed from the earth plane.
  • It will develop new technologies to enhance the communication, leading to more widespread use of the technology and more developments in using technology for this communication.
  • Results will be widely disseminated, with 1,500 -2,000 pages of digital reports, including all videos, transimages, and voice recordings in 13 e-magazines (1 per each mom/child participant in the project)
  • Articles will be submitted to peer-reviewed journals about the results of the research to inform the scientific community and public about the results of the research and conclusions.


The research will occur over 12 months. A broad overview of the steps in the study follows:

  1. Select 12 mothers/parents grieving for their children who have passed away. They will be selected based on the severity of their grief and whether the family has a voice recording of the child when he or she was on the earth plane
  2. Prepare the ideal background noise sound source. This sound source has vocal qualities, but has no intelligible words in it. IPATI, Sonia Rinaldi’s research institute, developed software to break and shuffle syllabus to create the background noise from speech recordings. If possible, the background vocal noise will have the same qualities as the child’s voice.
  3. The background noise will be examined by a forensics expert who will ensure the noise has no intelligible words.
  4. The recordings will be done with the mother present or remotely using an online communication service that functions much like a conference call. The mothers will ask questions live that are recorded. When the researchers play the recordings, the child’s answering voice will follow the questions.
  5. The researchers will listen to the recordings carefully, noting all clear replies to the questions. The researchers will note only those replies that are clearly intelligible.
  6. The questions and responses from the child will be typed into a document the family can read. The family will receive the recordings of the questions and responses to follow along with the typed notes. The family will be asked a set of questions to provide data about their assessments of the voices and images.
  7. The audio recordings of the questions and replies will be given to a group of 30 researchers who will individually listen to the recordings and write the words they hear in the replies to the questions. They will also assess the quality of the replies using ratings of “Excellent quality,” “Good quality,” or “Bad quality.”
  8. The sound source and the recording with questions and replies will be timed so the forensic expert can compare the children’s replies sounds to the sound source at the same time interval to ensure the reply words were not in the sound source.
  9. The forensic expert will compare the child’s voice in recordings of the child’s voice made before the child’s passing with the recorded replies. The forensic expert will supply a document with international and academic characteristics to demonstrate the veracity of the communication.
  10. The researchers and forensic expert will review the data to determine whether there is any plausible logical explanation for the replies other than the suggestion that the child was able to bring about the recordings.
  11. The data will be recorded in an e-magazine report with links to the recordings, analyses, and conclusions.
  12. IPATI will submit articles to peer-reviewed journals describing the results of the research.


  1. General Coordinator and transcommunicator ~ Responsibilities: Create the agenda; update devices; perform the recordings with the mother and family of the deceased one via Zoom; hire translators, typists for the e-magazine; select volunteers listeners; hire a person to program the text into e-mag format; maintain correspondence with the mothers or parents for witnessing the replies. Work with the forensic experts to supply everything they may need to ensure the transparency of each session.
