Instrumental Transcommunication (itc)(religion, spiritualism, and occult)
ITC includes two-way communication between the physical plane and the spiritual plane of the afterlife. This communication may be by telephone, radio, computer, fax, or any other special device. The interaction may be stored by use of technical means and can include images and text as well as voices. Instrumental Transcommunication is similar to Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP), both being different aspects of the electronic work. EVP is capturing spirit voices—however faint—on tape, or hearing them on the telephone or radio, while ITC is a two-way communication.
In the 1990s, the International Network for Instrumental Transcommunication (INIT) was started by Mark Macy, though this was later fragmented due to the skepticism and pressure of the scientific community.
