Introdução à TCI (Video 2)
No segundo episódio da série de videos em português sobre a experimentação em TCI, Anabela Cardoso reproduz algumas citações de investigadores dedicados à exploração da hipótese da sobrevivência da consciência após a morte física e da possibilidade de contactar aqueles que já nos deixaram. Allan Kardec anunciou num artigo publicado na Revue Spirite em 1864 que “... mais tarde a electricidade fará a sua revolução mediúnica, e a partir de então tudo se modificará na maneira de reproduzir o pensamento do espírito e não encontrareis esses defeitos... [referia-se às dificuldades encontradas nas comunicações mediúnicas]” (Cardoso, 2010). Cita ainda uma comunicação de EVP recebida por Klaus Schreiber, aparentemente de sua filha Karin, quem terá afirmado “Somos uma encarnação da electricidade”. Holbe, 1989; Cardoso, 2010 ibid, p. 29). Anabela sublinha o objectivo do novo método, desenvolvido pelos cientistas do mundo seguinte,cujafinalidade principal é dispensar o uso de intermediários e proporcionar o contactodirecto entre as duas dimensões. Neste contexto, chama a atenção para a extraordinária oportunidade que nos é oferecida pelos nossos queridos comunicantes e aconselha que as tentativas de contacto sejam feitas pelos interessados sem recorrer a intermediários. Todos o podem fazer, diz, e foi para isso que os nossos queridos amigos da dimensão seguinte de vida se empenharam no extraordinário descobrimento de que hoje desfrutamos através da TCI. Cardoso, A.

Introdução à TCI (Video 1)
Anabela Cardoso inicia com este curto vídeo um relato sobre os conceitos básicos da TCI. Baseando-se na sua própria experiência, propõe-se levar ao conhecimento dos seus ouvintes o que considera ser a atitude mais adequada para tentar o contacto com uma dimensão desconhecida da existência e defende a seriedade, honestidade, sentido crítico indispensáveis para quem se quer dedicar a esta fantástica aventura de tentar o contacto com a dimensão seguinte de vida. Neste episódio, introduz os pilares básicos da TCI - o pintor, músico, director de cinema sueco Friedrich Jürgenson e o filósofo e psicólogo letão Dr. Konstantin Raudive. A experimentadora defende que se deve começar por conhecer e respeitar a história de uma disciplina que nos interesse conhecer, como é o caso daqueles que pretendam experimentar na Transcomunicação Instrumental (TCI).
ANABELA CARDOSO’S ELECTRONIC CONTACTS WITH THE BEYOND
We present in this video the second part of a Galician TV documentary of the series ‘Milenio’, devoted to unusual phenomena occurred in Galicia, a region rich in traditions, myths and mysteries located in the Northwest of Spain. The original is in Gallegan but we have added English subtitles. The video features mainly Anabela Cardoso’s electronic contacts with the Beyond and mentions Marcello Bacci’s experiments in Grosseto, too. Anabela, a Portuguese career diplomat, was Consul-General of Portugal in Galicia when she started her ITC experiments. She bought a house near Vigo where she still lives most of the time. The two narrators of the ITC events featured in this documentary are Miguel Pedrero, writer and psychical researcher, and Carlos Fernández, writer and researcher of unusual phenomena, paranormal and others, very particularly in the Galician territory. He participates in, and is the director of, several radio programs on different subjects. Carlos, who has a background in electronics, was one of the two people who started the ITC experiments with Anabela Cardoso.He witnessed many of the DRV of those first years. Anabela explains that ITC, or Instrumental Transcommunication, is a method of trying to contact unknown dimensions of existence through electronic devices. German physicist Professor Ernst Senkowski who studied ITC phenomena in depth, devised the term. With this designation, Professor Senkowski wanted to cover all anomalous contacts, apparently with other levels of life,received by electronic means– voices, images, computer texts, telephone calls. Until then, the term used was Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), which covered the anomalous electronic voices only. Carlos Fernández describes the impact and the rarity of the DRV (Direct Radio Voices) which occurred at Anabela’s house. He explains that the voices came directly from the radio loudspeakers and all the radios in her studio are radio receptors not radio emitters. The radios were, and stillare, tuned in frequencies reserved for the exclusive use of the State that do not allow commercial stations. Carlos avers, and emphasizes, that a person outside her studio could not hear what was said inside the studio; however, the voices replied to the questions that were put to them and, in some cases, dialogues were established. Anabela goes on to tell that she started her experiments with a small group of two more people, Carlos Fernández and Lola. The three of them started working with the video images. Some results of anomalous images did come through. A couple of weeks later the group started experimenting with the EVP voices and a couple of months later, in January 1998, the first EVP voices were received. EVP voices cannot be heard while you record only on playback. The first EVP voice came through a couple of months later, and on the 11th of March 1998, Anabela, alone at home, received the first DRV (Direct Radio Voice).The loud masculine voice uttered, almost shouting: “We are listening to everything, we want to know about the world, we want to hear your things; Now we shall count on you, offer what is just! I was not the one who spoke but I suppose that you have made a question! This is very, and very difficult! Other world!” During the masculine voice’s intervention, Anabela spoke back to the voice. The DRV are a truly rare event, which she never suspected would happen to her. She was astonished and almost in shock for a few days! Since then the DRV became a very frequent event in her studio. She carried on the ITC experiments on her own because the other two friends came from far away and at a certain point, travelling became too tiring and time consuming. Professor David Fontana followed and studied Anabela’s electronic contacts for many years, and in his major workIs There an Afterlife?, he has a chapter on ITC in which he thoroughly describes his experiences at Dr Cardoso’ s studios, both in Lyon and Vigo (Fontana, 2005, pp. 352-381). Anabela Cardoso directed an important investigation into the anomalous electronic voices, which assembled several international operators. Positive results were obtained under the most controlled conditions currently available. Neuroquantology (https://www.neuroquantology.com) published the respective report in September 2012, Volume 10, Issue 3,pp. 492-514 under the title: A Two-Year Investigation of the Allegedly Anomalous Electronic Voices or EVP. Anabela is the founder and Editor of the ITC Journal (See: www.itcjournal.org) and has given innumerable lectures all over the world. She is the author of two books:Electronic Voices, Contact with Another Dimension?(O- Books, 2010) and Electronic Contact with the Dead, What Do the Voices Tell us? (White Crow Books, 2017). A third book is in print. Carlos G. Fernández is the author of the book Voces:del Más Allá (EDAF, 2006) and Miguel Pedrero is the author of Dios Existe (Luciérnaga, 2007), among others.
Video Eight: Sound Editing of samples of the Direct Radio Voices (DRV)
In this Video Eight Anabela Cardoso exemplifies sound editing work on a couple of utterances recorded by Guillermo Campos. One of them says very clearly “É do Tempo” (It is from Tempo [Rio do Tempo]). As reported in Anabela Cardoso’s Blog (See https://wordpress.com/view/itcanabela...), Guillermo started receiving Direct Radio Voices after coming to Anabela’s house to get information and learn about ITC work. He uses the same frequencies that Anabela works with, and the voices he receives, which identify themselves as coming from Rio do Tempo station, usually come through the radio tuned to 11.178 KHz, which is the frequency that Rio do Tempo’s voices come through at Anabela’s studio. Note: All Anabela Cardoso’s Youtube videos are published in the ITC Journal website, also. http://www.itcjournal.org/
VIDEO SEVEN: CONTACT!
In this new video Anabela Cardoso recaps the main steps to experiment with the EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomenon), namely: 1. Select a quiet place where there are no uncontrolled noises. 2. Select a source of noise; if the operator aims at the DRV (Direct Radio Voices) the obvious choice will be radio noise, preferably in the Short Wave(SW) in a point of the tuning scale where there are no normal radio emissions, between two stations. 3. Sit down and become quiet and relaxed. 4. Record for 10 to 15 minutes and ask questions to your invisible communicators leaving an interval of 1 to 2 minutes between each question. 5. Keep a log of your experiments. 6. Thank your communicators and listen to your playblack preferably next day so that your ears are not tired. She again confirmed that there is no specific protocol for the DRV. Every single ITC operator who receives the DRV has started by the EVP experimentation. Anabela reveals that her Rio do Tempo communicators have told her that they “are endeavouring and working to establish contact with everybody in this [our] world interested in the next world”. To realize this project they need many people to try the contact. Dr Cardoso finishes by playing two different anomalous electronic voices, one recommending her to make contact through the microphone and a spontaneous one which occurred during a telephone conversation with two friends.
Video Six Anabela Cardoso informs on ITC equipment and literature
In this segment Anabela shows her SW radios- two Radios Sony ICF- SW 77 and one Radio Sony ICF-SW7600GR. She emphasizes that this kind of powerful radios are aimed at the DRV work but unnecessary for the EVP work, which only requires a soft noise of whatever kind. Anabela connects her radios to the mains (wall power). They are not battery powered although they could be. She feels without any certainty that direct wall power might be an interesting component in this work. She again reports on the frequencies she uses: 11.178kHz, 22.545kHz, 13.250kHz, 250MHz. She recommends potential ITC operators to read a few basic books on EVP/ITC which are important for the understanding and study of this discipline: Friedrich Jürgenson’s Voice Transmissions with the Deceased (Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Firework Edition 2004), Dr Konstantin Raudive’s Breakthrough (Colin Smythe 1971), Hildegard Schäfer’s Théorie et Pratique de la Transcommunication (Ed. Robert Laffont, Paris 1992) or Hildegard Schäfer’s Portuguese translation Ponte entre o Aqui e o Além, (Pensamento, 1992). Anabela restates her dislike of the idea that “hunting for voices” is an entertainment of a minor kind and paraphrases Prof Hans Bender’s opinion on the significance of ITC after his tests with F. Jürgenson, that the phenomenon is perhaps the most important event in the history of mankind. Anabela finishes by announcing the publication of a report on an interesting ITC occurrence: https://itcanabelacardoso.wordpress.c... and begs people interested in this fascinating field of research to keep in mind that our rules here on the Earth are not the same as the next world rules.
VIDEO FIVE. A visit to Anabela Cardoso’s studio
In this short segment Anabela shows her recording studio, a small acoustically well insulated room at her house. She reports on the frequencies she uses in her experiments and informs the potential EVP operator that the frequencies are not so important in this type of work. It is the type of noise that seems to be relevant for the Direct Radio Voices while for EVP experiments noise should be much softer.
VIDEO FOUR: The role of noise (II)
In this presentation Anabela Cardoso continues her exposé about the role of noise in the EVP work. She emphasises the importance of not allowing normal radio emissions to taint the recording by using them as acoustic background support. The use of human voice as noise source, although conducive to positive results because the electronic voices use the “raw material” existent in the environment, is not advisable. The results cannot be shown to a serious audience and they may also provoke acoustic delusions in the EVP operator since it is very easy to mistake a normal sentence extant in the background acoustic support for an anomalous sentence. To avoid the danger of pareidolia, or acoustic delusion, she recommends pre-recording the radios emissions or the streaming that the ITC operator wishes to use in his or her EVP experiments and when the operator thinks that there is an anomalous inclusion, he or she can always check the pre-recorded noise source. She mentions the broad-band radio that she used in her experiments. The text by Carlos Fernández (https://lasvocesdelmasalla.blogspot.com/) on how to modify a radio to receive broad band is published in the ITC Journal and free of cost in the website: www.itcjournal.org The use of a log to write down all the noises produced during the EVP experiment is highly useful. Anabela finishes by announcing the remarkable EVPs obtained by the French operator Marc Montlahuc from the deceased Father François Brune who passed away last January.

VIDEO THREE. The role of noise in EVP
In this third video Anabela Cardoso speaks about the role of noise in EVP. The subject had already been touched in Video ONE but here it is analysed in more detail. Noise appears to be an important element in the formation of the anomalous electronic voices. This point has been put forward by different researchers who studied the subject in depth. This was the case of Dr. Engineer Carlo Trajna, himself a successful ITC operator and a respected researcher of the electronic voices. The Italian scientist performed numerous tests that amply demonstrate the postulate (See: Cardoso, A. Electronic voices, Contact with Another Dimension?, 2010). https://www.amazon.es/Electronic-Voic... In a two year study of the EVP, Dr Cardoso directed a series of tests under conditions controlled to the highest possible level and the conclusions of the report ‘A Two-Year Investigation of the Allegedly Anomalous Electronic Voices or EVP’, published in NeuroQuantology, September 2012, issue 10, number 3, fully corroborate the theory, now tested under scientific scrutiny. See: https://www.neuroquantology.com/index... Anabela describes several sources of background noise which can be selected by the potential operators emphasizing, nevertheless, that personal choice must prevail in this area. Syntony between the communicators of another dimension, the ITC operator on the Earth and the equipment should develop. This is the ideal requirement for positive results in the EVP experiments. In the video Anabela explains why radio noise is her favourite acoustic support for EVP. It not only contains a vast array of frequencies but may also be propitious for the communicators to start the Direct Radio Voices (DRV), which may allow for a dialogue. The great pioneer of the electronic voices, Friedrich Jürgenson, had already been advised by his communicators to “use the radio” in his experiments. See: https://archive.org/details/Jurgenson... Dr. Raudive, who followed him and initiated the scientific study of the EVP, also used radio static noise, the so-called white noise, in his tests. See: https://www.amazon.com/Breakthrough-a... Noise has been the reason why sceptics and ill-informed or ill-intentioned parapsychologists have attacked and denigrated the phenomenon. Anabela played a sample of her own EVP voices of years ago and demonstrated that noise cannot be taken for voices as sceptics have the habit of doing. Samples of Rio do Tempo voices can be heard at: www.itcjournal.org The subject of Noise will continue to be discussed in the next offer of Anabela Cardoso’s videos.
VIDEO TWO François Brune, a life at the service of God
In this second video Anabela Cardoso pays homage and says good-bye to Father Dr François Brune, the French theologian, writer and psychical researcher who much contributed to the spreading of the ‘good news of grace’ has he used to call ITC and EVP, the electronic communication with the dead. She describes her first encounter and her contacts with this man of God who on the 16th of January lived ‘the happiest day of his life, the day of his death’ as he used to say. François Brune wrote more than thirty books, most of them translated into different languages but none in English because the English publishers did not bother to translate any of his wonderful books, which range from mysticism to the lives of the saints, to Jesus Christ’s teachings, to ITC. This is certainly a pity for readers in the English-speaking world and a great failure in getting valuable information on the so-called paranormal events, which Father Brune personally witnessed throughout the world. Some of his books include: Les morts nous parlent Tome I ; Les morts nous parlent Tome II ; Christ Et Karma: La Reconciliation?; Les miracles et autres prodiges ; Mes entretiens avec les morts ; Le nouveau mystère du Vatican (Le Chronovisor) ; La Vierge de l’Egypte ; La Vierge du Mexique ou le miracle le plus spectaculaire de Marie ; Les miracles et autres prodiges; Les Morts Nous Aiment; A l’Écoute de l’Au-delà (with Prof. Rémy Chauvin). But undoubtedly his most famous book is Les Morts Nous Parlent, a best-seller translated into many languages, including Russian, about ITC. Several of his articles and interviews are published in English in the ITC Journal (www.itcjournal.org). Father Brune also came to an International Conference on the Survival of Death organized by the ITC Journal years ago (See Proceedings of the Second International Conference on Survival of Physical Death with Special Reference to Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC) (www.itcjournal.org). His life focused on Jesus Christ’s teachings and ethics and he was a severe critic of the present day Catholic Church. Exactly because of his love for, and respect of, original Christianity principles, at the last times of his life he renounced the Catholic faith and adopted the Orthodox one. He was buried in Paris in a beautiful ceremony at the Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, which can be watched at: https://www.facebook.com/jeanmichel.g... by initiative of his friend Jean-Michel Grandsire, the director of the magazine ParaSciences (http://jmgeditions.fr/index.php). On this beautiful and sad occasion I, Anabela, tell François Brune what he used to tell me at the end of our meetings when we said good-bye, ‘À toujours chère Anabela!’ It is my turn to tell him with gratitude and love: “À toujours cher François!”. We love you.
Number One of a series on EVP practice by Anabela Cardoso
In this first video Anabela Cardoso describes the basic requirements to start a personal experimentation to attempt the contact through electronic means with the next world where our deceased loved ones tell us they go on living. The basic method is commonly called EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena).
