FREQUENCY by Terrie M. Scott, September 18, 2013

Terrie ScottI'm always trying to make sense of the things that happen at the Rectory. I never stop theorizing possible explanations. Put your science thinking caps on.

We were at the Sedamsville Rectory yesterday doing some yard work. I was playing Bach's Prelude and Fugue No.1 in C major. Anyone that saw the film Mortal Instruments understands the implied significance of this music. The film offers the premise that certain frequencies agitate demons or stir up paranormal activity.

A different version of this frequency premise can also be found in the film Frequency starring Dennis Quaid. In this film, a rare atmospheric phenomenon allows a New York City firefighter to communicate with his son 30 years in the future via short-wave radio. The son uses this opportunity to warn the father of his impending death in a warehouse fire, and manages to save his life. However, what he does not realize is that changing history has triggered a new set of tragic events, including the murder of his mother. The two men must now work together, 30 years apart, to find the murderer before he strikes so that they can change history--again.

Basically a frequency allowed him to communicate through time and space with his deceased father. This premise infers that time and space are not what they appear to be. That they are fluid and overlap. 

Pitch and frequency are two related physical concepts dealing with the characteristics of sound. Frequency refers to the numbers of complete sound waves a given sound has per second. Pitch, on the other hand, is a letter name which is associated with sounds of a particular frequency. Pitch and frequency are related in that all musical pitches have some sort of frequency, but not all frequencies are necessarily associated with a single pitch name.

Where am I going with this? Patience. Frequency and pitch are possibly other methods of communicating... but are we communicating with the dearly departed or is it something else? That's the rub. And, the answer to the questions we seek.

Dr. Robert Lanza, Chief Scientific Officer at Advanced Cell Technology, theorizes that there is no death. That when we die we are only OUTSIDE of TIME as we believe it to be. And, when you die, you wake up and it's a new morning... but that morning takes place somewhere else. In another reality. I'll get to that later...

Meanwhile, David from W.I.S.P. Paranormal has been in contact with me on and off since his group was here on August 5th. After only reviewing 30% of their evidence they had already captured over 70 evps, several Class A's. I mention it because one of the EVP's seems to be directed at Tim regarding the loss of his brother the night before on August 4th. David sent me a text asking if Tim's brother had been overseas.

I replied, “No.”

He told me they received a Class A EVP saying, “I'm definitely not in Egypt.”

Excuse me???? Making references to “living in Egypt” is something Tim and his brother often used when the other asked “How ya doing, Bro.”

Before some of you jump on the band wagon and think his brother was trying to communicate with Tim. I'd caution us all to remember that as amazing as this EVP is, we all know that dark energies or evil things (insert whatever word you wish) prey on our weaknesses. Anytime someone is in a weakened emotional state that person becomes more vulnerable.

I wasn't about to let Tim go by himself in the emotional state he was in, but we had to go leave a key for W.I.S.P. So they could get in. I did my lickity split race through the Rectory, but it was darker than normal. Just seemed to be shadows and noises everywhere, and I don't mean from the raccoons.

It felt weird. I know – nothing new necessarily, but it felt like there was a group of hungry vultures hovering over our heads just waiting to swoop down and snag one of us.


At one point, Tim was getting dizzy and felt sick to his stomach. We didn't talk about it, but I could tell he felt it too. He's wasn't in any condition to drive by himself, which is why I was there. He was distraught over the loss of his brother.

We were walking through the dining room towards the kitchen and the feeling of oppression was so overwhelming that I just stopped and spoke out loud.

“Leave him alone. You can't have him. Just leave him alone. Don't even think about it!”

Finally, Tim commented on it. “So, you feel it too?”

“Uh yeah. Let's just hurry up and get out of here.”

The next night is when W.I.S.P. conducted their investigation, thus far collecting scores of EVP's and the “I'm definitely not in Egypt” EVP.

W.I.S.P. also capture 15 minutes of straight growling in the kitchen from perhaps our pukwudgie friend. They have since captured over 300 EVP's and haveFrequency still not finished going over all their evidence from the Rectory. I had a brief conversation with David about life after death and what his beliefs were. Very interesting and I'm not saying I believe this was Tim's brother.

Maybe it was? Maybe it wasn't. OR given the oppressive nature we felt the previous evening? It could have been something trying to lure Tim in, come talk to your brother... said the spider to the fly.

I think if you want to believe something enough, it becomes a reality to you. What better way to sink your hooks into someone when they are grieving the loss of a loved one?

What does happen to us after we die? Albert Einstein is widely regarded as one of the greatest scientists who ever lived. The totality of his work converges into one supreme goal: to understand the unity underlying nature’s diversity. His theory of special relativity (1905) showed the underlying unity of matter and energy and of light and time. His theory of general relativity (1916) showed the unity of gravity and acceleration, of space and time, and of matter and space. Einstein profoundly altered the way we think of ourselves and our universe. He believed that we are neither your body nor your brain; you are the electrical current running through your brain. Our brains allow us to store information, yet people live with damage brains. If our spark was to leave us, we would die.

But that spark or current of electricity can never die, Einstein proved that energy can never die or disappear, but it can change forms! So if there is a after life, we would not retain our previous life’s memories. So our spark will continue till the "end of time" in some form or another.

We're all just 20-watts of energy, right?

That's certainly one theory, especially from someone that dismisses the existence of God. I can not deny science, nor can I deny my faith. Quite the conundrum, isn't it?

Obviously from a religious standpoint, there is quite a different explanation as to what happens to us after we die. As paranormal investigators that is EXACTLY what you are seeking answers to... Is there life after death? What happens to you after you die? And, why does it seem like some linger and do not cross over? Or is it all just demons playing tricks on us?

The past several weeks have been riddled with loss. My Mom's closest friend passed away, Tim's brother died, my closest friend's son passed away tragically, another animal rescue committed suicide, and I had to put one of my dogs down (Snoopy). So much death all in the span of a few weeks.

When death comes so close, you question your own mortality. Before Tim headed to Texas for his brother's funeral and two days after I lost my Snoopy, we had to run to the rectory to leave a key for a group.

Tim left the digital recorder running while we cleaned up and took care of the fur babies outside. The Rectory didn't even feel weird that night. We were just busy cleaning. He had left it upstairs for awhile as we took a break in the kitchen. It was a warm night and the heat can really drain you. On the car ride home, we were very surprised to hear any EVP's at all. But clear as day the recorder picked up: “I'm gonna kill them” “Get the f*** out” “God help me” “Thank God” “Go away” Also, crying and even a long growl at one point.

So even when we think nothing is going on, there usually is something going on.

I know when I was faced with the tough decision to put Snoopy down (a rescue from Georgia that has been one of my fur babies since 2009), a lot of my rescue friends asked if I believed I would see Snoopy again – the Rainbow Bridge and all that. Yes, I do. I have always believed that. I can't imagine not believing in something. I have to believe we will reunite with those we love one day, of the two legged and four legged variety.

“Death is a reboot that leads to all potentialities.” Think about it.

Which brings me back to what Dr. Lanza believes in his BIOCENTRISM theories. He believes the voices we hear are basically Multi-Dimensional Phenomena. Fringe science, fascinating stuff, except it doesn't explain the scratches or the physical contact.

He believes that death does not exist in a timeless, spaceless world. In the end, even Einstein admitted, "Now Besso" (an old friend) "has departed from this strange world a little ahead of me. That means nothing. People like us...know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." Immortality doesn't mean a perpetual existence in time without end, but rather resides outside of time altogether.

Consider an experiment that was recently published in the journal Science showing that scientists could retroactively change something that had happened in the past. Particles had to decide how to behave when they hit a beam splitter. Later on, the experimenter could turn a second switch on or off. It turns out that what the observer decided at that point, determined what the particle did in the past. Regardless of the choice you, the observer, make, it is you who will experience the outcomes that will result. The linkages between these various histories and universes transcend our ordinary classical ideas of space and time. Think of the 20-watts of energy as simply holo-projecting either this or that result onto a screen. Whether you turn the second beam splitter on or off, it's still the same battery or agent responsible for the projection.

According to Biocentrism, space and time are not the hard objects we think. Wave your hand through the air - if you take everything away, what's left? Nothing. The same thing applies for time. You can't see anything through the bone that surrounds your brain. Everything you see and experience right now is a whirl of information occurring in your mind. Space and time are simply the tools for putting everything together.

I was a fan of the classic Star Trek series growing up. I don't follow the new stuff, but love the original series. The episode “Mirror Mirror” is perhaps one of my favorite where Spock, McCoy and Kirk end up in a parallel universe. VERY cool episode.

We generally reject the multiple universes of Star Trek as fiction, but it turns out there is more than a morsel of scientific truth to this popular genre. One well-known aspect of quantum physics is that observations can’t be predicted absolutely. Instead, there is a range of possible observations each with a different probability. One mainstream explanation, the “many-worlds” interpretation, states that each of these possible observations corresponds to a different universe (the ‘multiverse’). There are an infinite number of universes and everything that could possibly happen occurs in some universe. Death does not exist in any real sense in these scenarios. All possible universes exist simultaneously, regardless of what happens in any of them.

Any fans of the brilliant TV series THE FRINGE? The premise of that show is also there is more than one of everything. In one universe, the World Trade Center tragedy was avoided and the twin towers STILL stand. Now how cool is that?

Yeah, I know. Kinda makes your head hurt thinking about it.

ESP… GHOSTS… hauntings… time and reality shifts… reincarnation… precognition and prophecy.

But what causes them? How do they work? What is the mechanism that allows for the manifestation of a spirit or the ability to correctly predict a future event? Are they all part of the same phenomenon? No one really knows for certain what the answers to those questions are. But if the sheer number of experiences tells us that they are real, there must be a mechanism that allows them to take place.

We are all energy. That much is undeniable.

We can begin with the scientific reality that we are all made up of energy. In fact, everything is. Your body, your computer, your desk, the air, the solar system, the universe and everything in it is made up of nothing more than energy that manifests in different forms. Although string theory seems to be losing favor among many scientists, it states, if I understand it correctly, that everything consists of vibrating strings of energy, and it is how these strings vibrate that determines what it is: a hydrogen atom, a hydra, a hydrant or a human.

Let’s consider humans. Each human has her or her own unique vibrational frequency. And I’m not just talking about our physical makeup; more importantly this refers to our consciousness. Each conscious mind has a unique frequency. This may not be a literal frequency as we understand the frequency of radio waves, for example, but the term can be used as an analog for what our unique signatures are.

In this “frequency theory,” each of our individual frequencies is part of the great cosmic whole of frequencies. Our individual frequencies all share the same “air space.” In this way, we are all directly connected to the universe and to each other.

Perhaps we can think of it in terms of a great symphony that has a limitless range of notes (or frequencies, since that is what musical notes are). The universe and all it contains is the symphony, and each conscious mind is a unique note in that symphony. In fact, every thing is a unique note in the symphony, but let’s focus on the human experience.

Now let’s look at how this might explain a host of paranormal phenomena. Most people believe that our consciousness survives the death of our bodies. Our frequencies – or spirits, who we really are, our personalities – survive physical death. We are much more than our bodies. Our physical makeup on this planet is only a small aspect of the totality of our conscious minds in the universe. In the cosmic symphony, our bodies are only the notations on the paper; our consciousness is the music that transcends those notations. Upon death, the frequency of your consciousness (let’s call it your spirit) separates from the body. In some cases – usually in cases of traumatic or violent death, many ghost researchers agree – the spirit lingers or becomes trapped in the surrounding frequencies of the physical life it once possessed, unable to move on. Perhaps they are unaware that their physical and spiritual aspects have separated. They don’t know they are dead.

In other cases, however, these spirits do know they their consciousness has transcended, and they deliberately return. A grandmother’s spirit materializes to her distraught granddaughter to comfort her and assure her that she is well and happy in another world. It happens all the time. Separated from the body, the spirit is able to shift its frequency to materialize in the physical world for a last goodbye. Likewise, a spirit might also be able to manipulate certain frequencies to leave messages on voice recorders in the form of electronic voice phenomena (EVP).

Hauntings are different than ghosts. A haunting is like a recording on an environment: the sound of phantom footsteps trodding up and down a stairway, for example. In this case, perhaps it is possible that the stairway (consisting of its own frequencies) is able to absorb, “remember” or harmonize with the frequencies generated by the repeated act of someone’s energy going up and down those stairs. Under certain conditions, that memory is released and we experience it in the form of a haunting.

On rare occasions, people have experienced various forms of time or reality shifts. On a road trip, hundreds of miles are covered in an impossibly short time. Tourists come across a shop or even an entire village that, upon return, is found to have existed not in this time, but many years past. Others claim to have stepped into what looked like a future world. Some experience missing time. What is happening here? Again, the cosmic symphony already exists from first stanza to last. In this time and reality, we are only playing out our notes in our particular stanza of the symphony.

In some instances, however, the frequencies go out of phase and our notes find themselves harmonizing with the notes in some past or future stanza of the symphony.

Of course, all of this? Just a theory.

Meanwhile, I'll keep playing Johann Sebastian Bach at the Rectory... you know? Just to “mess” with them. Just in case. It certainly can't hurt.
