Hypothesized Postmaterial Collaborators'
Involvement SoulPhone™ Development
Dr. Gary Schwartz is currently developing technologies at the University of Arizona to communicate with postmaterial persons (PMPs) -- those who have transitioned from earth. The SoulPhone is based on over twenty years of Dr. Schwartz’s cumulative hypotheses about light, energy and information. When applied to survival of consciousness, they predict that life would have to continue after death, and that individuals who have passed on would retain their consciousness, identity, and core aspects of their previous physical form.
From 2010 to the present, Dr. Schwartz and his team developed nine different experiments using state-of-the-art technologies in an attempt to hear, see and measure PMPs utilizing highly sensitive sensors. In 2010, Rhonda Eklund Schwartz, an evidential research medium and wife of Dr. Schwartz, began establishing communication with a number of hypothesized postmaterial collaborators. Ten other evidential mediums have independently corroborated the interest by these esteemed luminaries to help this project.
A team of HPCs came together to work with Rhonda and Dr. Schwartz. Each 'deceased' luminary brought a unique set of talents, expertise and an apparent genuine commitment to help with the building of this technology. The members of the 'A-Team' include scientists, inventors, business persons, lay people and entertainers -- some whose names you would recognize.
However, as Dr. Schwartz says, “It’s not about the Team, and it’s not about the Technology. It's about the potential to positively Transform many people and our world.” These HPCs continue to play a critical role in the research to this day.
Evidence, Science, Experimentation, and Inspiration
As essential collaborators, members of the A-Team contribute to the work in four important ways:
1) Evidence -- The Spirit Team is continually providing us with evidence of Survival of Consciousness and Life After Death, and of their collaboration with us. This evidence comes in a variety of forms. They include:
a) Mediumship Validation – We have had more than ten evidential mediums provide independent confirmation that members of the Spirit Team are indeed working with us. Some of these validations occurred during scheduled readings and working sessions with the mediums under blind conditions. Others occurred spontaneously in group readings and during exploratory conversations with the mediums. In other cases, we have invited mediums to participate in special research projects with the Team, during which additional details have come through that further validated what we had previously been told by the Team and often providing new information to consider when designing future technology.
b) Information Validation – Over and over, members of the Team have provided information of their existence that is later confirmed by events, scientific results, or by researching what they conveyed. This evidential information is essential in order to take seriously what they are telling us and trusting that what they are saying is potentially valid.
c) Signs and Synchronicity Validation – Among the most interesting aspects of the language of spirit are signs and synchronicities. We often rely on these creative and surprising symbols and juxtapositions of events to know that spirit is watching over us and is aware of what we are doing and interacting with us.
2) Science – Members of the Spirit Team, in total, have spent more than a thousand hours not only answering questions about their world, their “physiology” and how they interact with our dimension, but also instructing us and providing valuable details concerning how an ideal spirit communication technology system can (and should) be constructed. The scientists and inventors on the Team have patiently worked to give us details of the physics and optics involved, and we see this information as being “their” intellectual property, not ours, and not anyone else’s.
To date, little of their visionary (and plausible) recommendations has been formally tested or integrated into Gary’s technology experiments – the reason for this being entirely financial. When the funds become available for this sophisticated research to be conducted, it will be done both to honor the Spirit Team and the many hours they have spent and invested in this venture. And perhaps more importantly, to see how far their instruction can take us in the development of spirit communication technology, which would benefit mankind in numerous significant and important ways.
In the meantime, Dr. Schwartz relies on and takes into serious consideration what the Team members have shared with us about their understanding of the nature of their world. It is vitally important information to have as he thinks through and designs integrative software and hardware using state of the art technology based on his scientific knowledge.
3) Experimentation - Laboratory experiments in this field would be impossible without the active participation of willing, eager, and dedicated spirits. Their commitment to this process of discovery and verification is evidenced by their always showing up when requested, whether it is for informal conversation about the experiments, in-depth questioning of the procedures, or lengthy and often tedious sessions working with the equipment in the laboratory.
4) Inspiration - Spirit’s involvement in this work provides us with essential inspiration that keeps us excited about the prospects of a breakthrough in understanding spirit communication and ultimately building reliable technology for communicating with them. Their enthusiasm and dedication is often seen in surprising signs and synchronicities that show their playfulness, wisdom and caring; and that is especially important in the face of often hostile critics and the challenge of raising necessary research funds. Also, these special spirits’ motivations for doing this work represents a level of caring about humanity and the planet that reflects the highest levels of understanding, compassion, and wisdom.
