Welcome to the Association TransCommunication
Whenever encountering an extraordinary event, seek first to find commonalities with other extraordinary events before assuming something new.
Founded in 1982, the Association TransCommunication (ATransC) is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the study of all forms of transcommunication with an emphasis on Instrumental TransCommunication (ITC), and its subset, Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP). The organization is dedicated to objective understanding based on research. Today, it is amongst the very few organizations in the English-speaking world that provides information about the Trans-survival Hypothesis from the perspective of current understanding about transcommunication.
The ATransC is supported by annual membership dues and donations. Benefits of membership include the quarterly ATransC NewsJournal, access to the ATransC Idea Exchange and the opportunity to support research and public outreach. This website which includes over 400 pages of information has been made possible by members.
Members conduct and support research leading to better understanding of all forms of transcommunication with an emphasis on EVP/ITC. The information available on this website has been contributed to by members, either directly as articles or via individual reports which the directors have composited into articles.
In many respects, the directors are just reporters in that, without the members, little of this material would exist. None of the volunteers, including the directors, receive compensation. All of the funds, including proceeds from the Butler's book, There is No Death and There are No Dead, are applied to operations, outreach and research.
ATransC Is Unique Amongst "Paranormal" Organizations
Learning about the paranormal is not just an interesting thing to do. The reality of such unexplained phenomena involving transcommunication has profound implications for everyone. There is strong evidence that these phenomena mean that the personality of people survives in an aspect of reality other than the physical. While evidence for survival awaits better research, mounting evidence for the existence of a form of as yet unexplained nonphysical energy is expected to soon force reconsideration of many physical principles long considered laws of nature. The fact that this nonphysical energy can be shown to be influenced by people's thoughts and can be beneficial to the wellbeing of people is already changing the way many people live.
We invite you to first study the evidence offered on this website and then decide whether or not you are ready to take the next step in your personal development. There are a number of organizations that will tell you about things paranormal. Most will only allow you to participate if you have an advanced academic degree. The ATransC is amongst the very few that considers these phenomena from the perspective of survived personality, rather than just human potentials and which actively seeks member participation.
If you are ready to take the next step toward mindful living, take time to study your alternatives and then become involved in the community, both as a student and as an activist, to help move this study into the mainstream of science and society. If you do seriously consider the choices, we think you will see that the Association TransCommunication is the place to begin.
What this website offers
Since its founding in 1982, members of this organization have brought the public news about discoveries concerning survival of personality, communication across the veil and what is being learned about the other side.
The over 400 pages of this website are maintained free to you but we ask that you consider supporting this research. If you feel this information is important, that it is important to learn more and that you have benefited from ATransC members' work, then please consider supporting this work by becoming a member, being active in this study via research, participating in the Idea Exchange and donating to further this work.
Journal: While the ATransC NewsJournal is a quarterly publication which often includes research reports, the Journal section of this website serves as an online publication. Well-considered research reports are invited from members and non-members alike. With the objective of providing a source for people to assess current research, the ATransC online Journal provides one of the very few sources in the English speaking world for information about this kind of research that is available to the average person outside of the academic library system.
Theory: There has to be a "so what" for any study. Yes, there are unexpected phenomena, and yes, they appear to provide evidence of survival of personality, a greater reality and transcommunication. Of course this has important implications for science, but what does it mean to the individual? How should people respond to the likelihood they will find themselves very much alive on the other side of the veil?
As new information becomes available, the ATransC directors have been evolving a version of the Trans-survival Hypothesis (phenomena are caused by survived personalities). It is based on the version of the survival hypothesis referred to in parapsychology as an alternative to the Super-psi Hypothesis (phenomena are echoes of the past) but is influenced by what has been learned via etheric studies. As part of this effort, a suite of essays are also being evolved which address important concepts such as Mediumship, The Creative process, Etheric Field, and Personality.
Resources: Member links and links to sites related to transcommunication, an extensive White Paper on EVP and many examples are maintained on the website for public access. Personal stories offered in the Circles section and articles in the Article section are intended to provide role models for people wanting to learn how others have experienced these phenomena. All of the ATransC NewsJournals published since 2000 are available for members to download in the Idea Exchange. Reading the past NewsJournals affords an important education about transcommunication that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
A person can become knowledgeable about these phenomena and learn to work with ITC by taking the time to study the contents of this website but it is important to work with others who can act as "objective advisors."
Our promise to you
ATransC will continue to provide this website and expand its services as long as there is sufficient interest and support from the public. The only advertising here is for closely related organizations such as the Forever Family Foundation. All links are to sources of additional information and never to "text ads," so feel safe following the links.
The directors will continue to do their very best to assure that what the ATransC brings to the public is objective evidence of survival.
If you want this kind of organization to continue, it is up to you to support it, at the very least, with your $30 a year membership.
