The very idea might strike you as blatantly ridiculous. But after two years of research, we have come to the conclusion that these enigmatic phone calls do occur and are, indeed, probably more common than you might imagine. We have come to admit that the people who report these experiences are not perpetrating hoaxes, but have had genuine and sometimes shocking expereinces-- which most parapsychologists have been ignoring for years. This volume represents the result of a two-year investigation into the phantom phone call mystery. We feel we have literally stumbled upon a new form of psychic communication.

So I bought and read this classic, a book that has been out of print for decades, again. I believe it is totally feasible yet I would like to know how the phone system is manipulated, if really a phone call, to make possible the communication of two parties dwelling on different dimensions.
There are three types of call:
1. People who had recently passed on or dead for years to out of the blue call family and friends.
2. The receiving kind: you call a house and somebody who is alive in other realities answers the phone.
3. A conversation with an alive person to another alive: yet one party later on denies either making or receiving such phone call. (These are people who intended to call but never did, yet it seems that the call was psychically made)
The issue here is: How is the phone manipulated to carry on a normal conversation when one of the parties is not physical?
To build a channel of communication among those here and those dwelling on different planes of life deeper and more advanced research on this subject must be done.
Most of the criticism of this book revolves around how the phone is manipulated to carry on a normal conversation when one of the parties is not physical and why they don't just tell us how they do it. In order for this to happen, you have to have someone dead call you and you have to have enough wits about you to ask the question. Most people would be mortified if a dead person called them.
I can answer both of these questions because someone (not alive) called me on the phone every night for ten years. In my case, they were standing right beside the phone manipulating the ringer and modulator with their electomagnetic energy. They could only manipulate simple pulse phones, (the ones that usually cost about $6.95). Digital phones were too difficult to manipulate.
If nothing else, this will give younger people a look at phone technology from another age, before Ma Bell was broken up and before the times of cellphones. Many of these calls were placed for the caller by "operators," a service the phone companies provided before Capital realized that money could be saved by firing human beings and replacing them with poorly functioning machines. Back in those days you could reach a human agent who would find and dial numbers for you-less efficient financially but much better for the consumer. Ah, the old days.
At any rate, this book is very good. Bayless & Rogo speculate on whether the experiences really occur or are hallucinations, and if they do occur, what could be the agent for the calls? Unlike today's psychic researchers who are invariably Spiritualists-that is, their religious belief that life continues after death determines all their conclusions-this book takes other possibilities into consideration. Are people somehow generating the calls themselves, through their own psychic powers? Is there some unknown "Trickster" placing the calls for reasons no one can imagine? This is investigating this sort of thing scientifically. Or as scientifically as a subject like this CAN be investigated. I'd recommend this book if it were reprinted at an affordable price, but since it actually examines the subject instead of simply using the data to assure people that life continues after death, that's not likely. Unfortunately the Spiritualist outlook of popular shows like Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters has blunted the curiosity of most people who look into the subject these days. If you stumble across this at a decent price, grab it!

I think it is so weird that people don't talk about it.
