J.G. Ballard on EVP

December 3, 2022

V. Vale (Vale Hamanaka): “I saw a book yesterday on the recordings of [Konstantin] Raudive, who claimed to have recorded… voices of the dead. [William] Burroughs mentioned him in The Job.“

J.G. Ballard: “I’m skeptical about all that. The whole world of psi phenomena leaves me dead cold. It seems to be less interesting than conventional reality… If you pick up that can of beer and let go, it falls to the floor — that strikes me as incredibly mysterious… much more mysterious than if it just stayed hovering in mid-air…”
