For many that have been in the paranormal field a while or even a moment the term EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) has become common place. If you’ve taken the time to watch a paranormal TV show or two, then it’s likely that at some point you would have heard the investigators throw the term about whilst playing around with a Digital Voice Recorder.
Oddly enough ‘apports’ in my experience are not as commonly well-known in the paranormal field as you might think. Many have heard of objects flying around rooms and also materialising from nowhere, such as in well known poltergeist cases like Enfield and Pontefract. However the term ‘apport’ is rarely used.
The word ‘telepathy’ was originally conceived by one of the founding members of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), Frederic Myers around the 1880’s. Myers defined it as ‘the communication of impressions of any kind from one mind to another, independent of recognised channels of sense’. He also suggested that telepathy may exist between two people in the same room as truly as between one person in England and another in Australia, or between someone still living on earth and another that had died a long time ago.
