Get Ready for the Soul Phone

by Mark Pitstick, MA, DC

Technology to contact departed loved ones on the “other side” is on the horizon.

The term SoulPhone® describes a series of anticipated scientific devices that will allow communication with your “deceased” loved ones. This technology also will allow wise input from “departed” luminaries—scientists, inventors, great teachers, healers and even entertainers—who want to assist those of us on Earth.

The SoulPhone® is being developed under the direction of Gary Schwartz, Ph.D., Director of the Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health at the University of Arizona. He is a Harvard graduate and former Harvard and Yale Professor. Dr. Schwartz has published more than 450 scientific papers, including six in the journal Science, and co-edited eleven academic books. The author of seven books including The Afterlife Experiments and The Sacred Promise, he is a serious and well-respected scientist with impeccable credentials.

Dr. Schwartz and his research team—an engineer, optical physicist and other scientists—are using ultra-sensitive sensing devices to measure the presence of hypothesized spirit participants. Some of the same equipment also is used by NASA to measure light from distant planets and stars, and statistically significant measures of some of these giants have been detected using light, sound, motion and energy/electromagnetic fields.

The working theory is that those who have passed on—but definitely not passed away—are alive, well and still want to continue relationships with their beloved ones on this planet. And, as mentioned, some motivated leaders and masters who have changed worlds are working to help us heal ourselves and our planet.

The first-stage device is the SoulSwitch®, a simple binomial technology that will allow “nonphysical beings” to answer «yes» or «no.» Dr. Schwartz estimates a 90–95 percent chance of completing this in about one year depending on how well the research is funded.

Next, a series of switches will enable the creation of a SoulKeyboard® that will allow you to SoulText®, much as you can now with your personal devices. The anticipated time frame for this stage is two years.

Following that will likely be SoulAudio® that allows you to hear and talk with those living “on the other side.” After that, we envision a SoulVideo® device, technology that will allow both video and audio visits, much like present-day Skype, FaceTime or Zoom.

The current ultimate vision of Dr. Schwartz and his team is a SoulPhone “app” that, like all prior devices, connects to the nearest SoulStudio® housing the technology. This software is projected to run on your personal smartphone, pad or other computer device.

But there’s a lot of research and development to do before that point.

Proof-of-concept research to date indicates a strong likelihood of developing these devices as described above. However, unexpected positive or negative events may change the order, nature and/or timing of their availability.

Does the concept of a SoulPhone seem impossible to you?

I was born in 1953, not long after dinosaurs became extinct. At the age of 10, our phone number had only five digits. My grandparents had a “party line,” but it wasn’t as much fun as the term suggests. If others were using the phone, you had to wait until they were done to make your call.

My dad worked for the telephone company for 35 years, so I was especially aware of how phone technology progressed. Back then, telephone operators were called “switchboard operators” because they had to manually connect the two parties who wanted to speak.

When you were away from home, the only way to make calls was with a phone booth. Local calls only cost 10 cents, whereas long distance calls required a pocket full of change. You had to put in more money when your time was almost over if you wanted to keep talking.

Dick Tracy, a cartoon character detective, had a futuristic wristwatch that allowed him to speak with and see people far away. I thought it was a great idea that would never really happen because it seemed so impossible. After all, telephones were big bulky things that required a wired connection. And TVs were really huge and needed electricity and an antenna.

Oh yes, those antennas. My dad actually had to climb an extension ladder to the top of our two-story home and manually rotate the antenna. I stuck my head outside the window and yelled up to let him know when the TV station we wanted to watch was clear. Those of you who are Baby Boomers or older know that I’m not making this up.

That was 1963. I would have considered you crazy if you told me that the first SmartPhone would be introduced in a mere 30 years. (I also wouldn’t have known what you were talking about. But it’s true. IBM came up with a prototype mobile phone that incorporated PDA features in 1992.

SmartPhones are old news now. We take it for granted that a hand-sized, lightweight and wireless device can make phone calls all over the world and allow us to see each other while talking. In addition, it takes wonderful photos, serves as a GPS, allows texting, stores photos and—at last count—conducts approximately 137 zillion other functions.

A similar and amazingly rapid development is occurring again. I invite you to visit and keep an open mind. The transition from party lines and switchboard operators to the SmartPhone in just 30 years was amazing. The development of the SoulPhone® to allow spirit-communication seems even more amazing . . . but it›s happening. Let me know if you feel called to donating and/or volunteer to usher in these life and world-changing devices.
