Three Modern Technologies That Make a Golden Age of ITC Possible

Today, as never before possible, a network of researchers from all around the world could usher in a new golden age of ITC, or instrumental transcommunication, the use of technology to get in touch with the other side.

In other words, a United Nations of afterlife research is possible today, for the first time in history.

That’s what we tried to accomplish with INIT in the late 1990s, and although we experienced unprecedented miracles that gave us a taste of the world-changing possibilities, in the end we faced too many insurmountable obstacles, especially the language barrier, the cost of international conferences and meetings, and our inability to set aside egos in order to sustain unity and harmony in the ranks.

The original INIT members simply faced too many obstacles to carry ITC into the golden age… but today things have changed.

Today, a network of ITC researchers from all around the world—from all cultures, nations and religions—could stay in touch with each other and stay unified as a team, as they work to sustain group resonance… with the help of:

  • A private, multilingual website with translatability,
  • Videoconferences, and
  • Personal refinement technologies.

Will I try to launch that new ITC network in my own golden years (I’m 66 now)?

Very unlikely. It would be a substantial effort, and I’m not sure I have the energy and enthusiasm for it.

I can think of only two things that would compel me launch an ITC network as described in this article:

  1. If certain members of the original INIT group expressed an interest, or
  2. If I knew for certain that this new network would get the level of ethereal support that enabled the miracles of INIT… and that would depend on members’ willingness and ability to set aside their egos. No simple feat!

In either of those cases, I’d drop everything to once again make ITC my main reason for living.

Whoa. Just the thought of plunging head-long into ITC research brings back stark memories of what I went through the first time around. In 1992 I started dedicating most of my effort to ITC, first with George Meek, then with the Harsch-Fischbach couple and INIT, which we founded in 1995. ITC became my passion. I soon had to quit my technical writing work in order to do everything for INIT (writing, trying to mediate the conflicts, corresponding with members, planning and organizing the annual meetings in different countries, setting up a nonprofit foundation, finding donations to pay for those expensive meetings….). I received no financial compensation for my work. I tried to sell books and newsletters but didn’t even come close to breaking even. Still, I loved doing it, knowing that the miracles we were experiencing were well worth the sacrifice. It wasn’t an easy time for our family of three. We were able to live on my wife Regina’s school counselor salary, and thanks to her sacrifices we carried on.

In 2007, several years after INIT had quit functioning, I resumed my tech writing work, and Regina retired soon after… a suitable reward for her years of sacrifice.  Well, this year I quit tech writing (again) and I also retired.

So, am I ready to resume full-time ITC? Probably not, even though maintaining an ITC research network would be different now. Much less expensive… and maybe not quite so much work. Mail, books, and newsletters would be replaced by websites and emails. Annual meetings would be replaced by videoconferencing. Things would be simpler… and cheaper… but still… a substantial effort!

Anyway, the least I can do before I fade away this lifetime is to figure out as best I can what exactly will be involved in the project, and lay out the ground work for a new generation of ITC researchers. That’s my aim with this “Golden Age of ITC” series of articles… to set the stage as best I can for Act Two: The Real Golden Age.

An Intercultural, Multilingual, Private Website

The best approach I can think of for an international research website is to have one home site that contains multiple subsites for different languages:

    • Etc….

The website and all the subsites would probably be built and managed with WordPress. There are two forms of WordPress—the simple version ( and the powerful version (

(There are other web development packages available, such as Microsoft Sharepoint, but WordPress is far easier to use and much more popular. Sharepoint is powerful and stable but is expensive and involves highly specialized skills and terms and concepts that are a monster to master. I battled that monster for many months before I retired. Also, Microsoft has never developed a user-friendly “Sharepoint Light” counterpart of There’s only the monster version.)

This macyafterlife site was put together simply using with its many templates and beginners’ tools.

The new ITC website would have to be created with the more powerful (rather than the ‘light’ version) in order to host multiple subsites with different languages and to be closed to the public… and to incorporate specialized “plugins” which are basically what the smartphone world and Microsoft (with the release of Windows 10) call “apps.”

Here’s a wordpress menu showing the most popular language options:


There’s also a larger WordPress menu that includes ALL the major languages. Each subsite could be built around one of those languages.

The new website and its growing list of subsites would have to run on a good WordPress host, such as Bluehost, using a VPS (virtual private server)… as opposed to shared hosting or a dedicated server.

And that is most of the basic technical information necessary to launch a website for a miraculous, new, international, multicultural ITC network… at least at this point in time (autumn, 2015). As technology evolves, new technical options will probably become available in the future….


There are various videoconferencing  options today, ranging from free skype chats on your laptop computer with a few friends… to pricey and powerful Polycom systems where an entire wall can be covered with large video screens showing many participants amid powerpoint slides in a meeting with flawless audio.

As the ITC network evolves and grows, various subgroups speaking the same native language or bridge language can determine the videoconferencing systems that best suit their purposes… and pocketbooks.

Reports of those videoconferences could be posted on the website so that any member could view the meeting content through automatic translation.

Personal Refinement Technologies

ITC is often defined, simply, as the use of technology to get in touch with the other side.

In truth, there’s more to it than that. Successful ITC contacts (spirits delivering information into our world with the help of our equipment) require a resonance of attitude among researchers… a sustained harmony… which is no easy feat when we humans have to contend with the fears, doubts, desires, jealousies, and resentments that so easily interrupt our day-to-day lives and disrupt our relationships here on Earth.

The members of a successful ITC network will have to strive to overcome those hormonal dramas… and only when they succeed will they be able to attract the sort of help (ethereal help) necessary to open an ITC bridge.

There are ethereal gatekeepers who can open and sustain an ITC bridge once researchers on Earth can achieve a resonant condition with unity of mind… and once that ITC bridge is opened, information can stream into our world through TVs, computers, telephones, radios, and other technologies in the most miraculous ways.

But achieving that resonance requires inner work for everyone involved in the new network. Even if you regard yourself as the kindest, calmest, most tolerant person you know… don’t kid yourself. You will be tested.

So, here are a couple of modern technologies that can help us refine and align that package of body, mind, and spirit that makes us who we are:

  • HeartMath tools for inner coherence, harmony, and peace take the transformative power of heart meditation to the next level. From their website:

“Personal coherence, also known as psychophysiological coherence, refers to the synchronization of our physical, mental and emotional systems. It can be measured by our heart-rhythm patterns: The more balanced and smooth they are, the more in sync, or coherent we are. Stress levels recede, energy levels increase and our brain and what HeartMath calls the “heart brain” work together. It is a state of optimal clarity, perception and performance. HeartMath tools and technology have been scientifically proven to help us achieve personal coherence.

“Global coherence refers to the mental, physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of the greater community of human beings acting in concert with their own hearts, each other and nation to nation in harmony with the living earth. HeartMath believes coherence is highly achievable globally when large numbers of people focus heartfelt intentions on a common goal.”

  • Monroe Institute tools for brainwave entrainment send stereophonic pulsing signals into the ears to lull the brain into various meditative states. Their website explains that the signals…

“… create a resonance that is reflected in unique brain wave forms characteristic of specific states of consciousness. The result is a focused, whole-brain state known as hemispheric synchronization, or “Hemi-Sync®,” where the left and right hemispheres are working together in a state of coherence. As an analogy, lasers produce focused, coherent light. Hemi-Sync® produces a focused, coherent mind, which is an optimal condition for improving human performance.”

I hope to add more personal refinement tools to the list in the coming months as I learn about them.

I’ve been familiar with these two institutes since the days of INIT. In fact, I recommended a joint project involving INIT, HeartMath, and Monroe to our group. All but two of the INIT members ignored the idea. The two who responded suggested joint projects with other institutes instead (Nathal Institute in Germany and Noetic Sciences Institute in San Francisco)… giving you an idea of how difficult it is even to get bright minds and good hearts to resonate together on a good idea.

    A most valuable posting Mark…I hope your efforts in bringing forth your deep experience and insight with afterlife communication will blossom from the precious seeds you are planting.
    These postings really help me reflect on my own inner shadow and our cultural shadows, and it is here that the hang-ups of successful transcommunication are born.

    • Mark Macy says:

      John, I always feel as though you’re my spiritual big brother. The one who saved my life when I was a little kid.

      You and I tread some parallel paths… for better and worse.. 🙂
      You’ve done so much good for the world! (as well as for me)… it’s hard to imagine there’s more to come.
      But I sense huge things in store, and I’m looking forward.

      Love and light to you and Jean,


  2. Guitarplayergeorge says:

    I will support you in any way I can Mark.

  3. Tosca Zraikat says:

    A daunting task that would be, Mark, but not impossible. The human aspects alone would be a huge challenge, I think, so perhaps that is where a new project INIT might start, in the bringing together individuals willing to prepare themselves psycho-spiritually to work cooperatively towards the shared goal of transcommunication. Something like, “prepare the field, and they (Timestream) will come.”

    • Mark Macy says:

      Yes, that’s been the crux of my meditations for several years.
      Thanks, Tosca. Right on, as usual.
      I suspect it’s going to manifest for a network of individuals who’ve all gone through the dramas of their egos and hormones and gotten totally worked up and delirious or frantic to the breaking point until they’ve finally asked the ceiling above their beds… ‘is that all there is?’
      The next morning they begin to wonder if there’s something more.
      At that point maybe they’re ready to transcend the savage side of life and commit to resonance and unity of mind with other souls who’ve survived the battle scars of life on Earth.
      Those brave, persevering souls will usher in the Golden Age… and salvage this rag-tag culture we call humanity… by connecting to empathetic ethereals who see the big picture and decide, yes, there might still be hope for that Earth world.

      but I pontificate….. 🙂

    • Hey Mark,

      Go to 1:12.53 in this video. It appears that timestream is multi channeling. 🙂


      • Mark Macy says:

        Thanks, Bill, for the link.

        As I recall, the British producer of that video (Tim Coleman) was working with the American film producer Dan Drasin on a documentary, and somewhere along the way they split off to produce two separate afterlife documentaries. Here’s a link to Dan’s film.

        I wasn’t aware of Tim’s version until you pointed it out on youtube.

        It was most amazing how the miracles of INIT and the miracles of the Scole group began and ended around the same time… suggesting to me that the ‘gatekeepers’ of ITC (The Seven) were controlling the bridge in both cases.

        So, yes, there did seem to be some ‘multi-channeling’ going on. 🙂

        Also. the Italian researcher Marcello Bacci was involved with our INIT group and came to one of our international meetings. The Timestream spirit group was/is very aware of his great work!


  4. JB says:

    This is a worthy initiative, aligned with the spiritual plan, as i understand it. Contact with the post-mortem world via the radio has been prophesied in theosophical teachings. The ashram of a Master of Wisdom (Master H.) is probably facilitating the groundwork for this work from the inner side. I think that the plan has been delayed due to Humanity’s temporary failure to apply the lessons learned during the Great War (1914-1949). Premature opening of this channel of communication with the other side would be dangerous. In the hands of the selfish group of people who currently control world affairs, such technology would be misused.

    Still, there’s a need to scientifically prove the survival of consciousness after death. Proving this will be a major blow to the current materialist brain-mind belief. Such impersonal focus would mitigate the risk of personality frictions in a group devoted to this purpose. No personal contacts with the other side except those based on altruistic friendship should be sought; no pulling back those who have earned their right to move on the spiritual path; avoid earth-bound spirits seeking to obsess weak-willed brains.The aim should be to contact the higher levels of the post-mortem human world and the angelic kingdom.

    Self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech foster right relations in a research group and would open the door to the other side too.

    Jose Becerra

    • Mark Macy says:

      Thank you, Jose, I think you touched on something very important. Master H (Hillarion) is part of a hierarchy that’s associated with “the Seven Rays.” He’s also known as “Chohan of the Fifth Ray.” I wonder if “The Seven Rays” are the same as “The Seven Rainbow People” who worked closely with our INIT group and made the miraculous communications possible. They gave us different names for themselves (Technician, Thfirrin, Nsitden….) but made it clear that names are not important to them. The League of Nations, then the United Nations emerged from the world wars, which suggests to me that humanity was groping for the light throughout the last century, but the fact that the UN is largely disregarded when nations get lathered up in their savage motivations also suggests that the light is still beyond our grasp. That, in a nutshell, is probably why The Seven worked with such great care while working with our INIT group, controlling the bridge carefully and pulling back when our interpersonal dramas erupted. Still, they shared a lot of valuable information with us. If you have time at some point, maybe you could read through some of the 39 “ITC Gems” on this site, which contain most of their messages… to see if they resonate with what you learned from Master H in the Theosophical teachings. That would be very interesting to me. You can access the ITC Gems from the home page:

      I don’t worry too much about people misusing ITC for selfish purposes. Once the savage side of our nature takes over, ITC bridges shut down… since they need resonance to sustain. Noble attitudes (love, trust, good will…) foster order and peace and sustain resonance, while savage attitudes (fear, resentment, envy…) always lead to conflict and chaos, so that things fall apart in human affairs.

      Opening contact bridges to the finer levels of spirit certainly has its challenges… not just material-minded scientists and envious peers on this side of the veil, but also the many dark and troubled spirits residing in the dense, shadowy spirit realms near the earth. And the biggest challenge of all is that savage part within each of us that gives in to fears, doubts, resentments and other savage attitudes. Still, I think ITC is a salvation for humanity, if we can rise to the challenge and let ourselves be guided by our noble side. (Huge task!)

      I like very much your focus on “self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech” as a way to bring out the noble side.

      Thank you so much for your comments…


      (Now I have to go back through some earlier postings to update them with ideas you have inspired me with… the Seven Rays… the Theosophical Society…. )

      • JB says:

        I’ve been in touch with this work since 1988. I reconnected with your more recent work from a comment by my friend James in my blog (THOTH) two years ago.
        Yes, I think that the ‘Seven Rainbow People’ may be related to the Seven Ray energies. JB

        • Mark Macy says:

          Thanks for that link, JB. I hope to explore more deeply from there.

          Shortly after I began to work with George Meek (the Spiricom fellow), he began to “feed” me books and booklets and articles about the hierarchy and the various masters… books by Virginia Essene… books channeled from the “Ashtar Command”… the Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East book set…. It all stretched my mind very quickly.

          Before that, in the mid-1970s… (correction, mid 80s, around the time I got married), before I really took a spiritual path, I was inspired to visit Jan van der Linden in New York City, who was running the School for Esoteric Studies, which was associated with Triangles and The New Group of World Servers… which I believe you are also associated with. Jan contributed to a book I was writing at the time.

          I guess there was always something inside pulling me in this direction, even when I was a confirmed agnostic. Long story short, I’m glad our paths have crossed.


          • JB says:

            Yes, the New Group of World Servers … and it’s mantra:

            May the Power of the one Life pour through the group of all true servers.
            May the Love of the one Soul characterize the lives of all who seek to aid the Great Ones.
            May I fulfill my part in the one Work through self-forgetfulness, harmlessness, and right speech.

          • Mark Macy says:

            Beautiful mantra……..
            I’ll spend some thought correlating my concept of ‘the noble side’ with your “self-forgetfulness, harmlessness and right speech”.

  5. Ricky says:


    One thing that seems to be a real challenge in terms of the ‘inner work’ aspect of all of this is the de-calcification of one’s pineal gland, or Third Eye. One website describes it as our “spiritual antenna”. My main challenge would be to remove my reliance upon caffeine. Even though the common methods that are listed for the de-calcification process are for the specific purpose of enhancing our alignment with the worlds of spirit, I feel as if they would help people to achieve an overall richer and more fulfilling form of purity during their existence on earth. I strongly believe that efforts need to be made for people to heal themselves from within – both physically and spiritually. I remember reading how you were told “You need to heal yourself before you heal the world”…so very true on so many levels!


    • Mark Macy says:

      Hi Ricky,

      I wasn’t familiar with the idea of decalcifying the pineal gland (which has long been associated with access to spiritual realms and meditative states), but a google-search found a number of sites like this one:

      Thanks for that connection. I find some items on those lists of do’s and don’ts that would be useful to me, too… caffeine among them. 🙂

      Yes, those words of Dr Day during my bout with colon cancer (heal yourself before healing the world) changed my focus on things. While living on this planet, though, it seems that healing is a life-long task for just about everyone.


  6. E.D. says:

    I’m a writer and editor. Happy to help in any way I can.

    • Mark Macy says:

      Hi ED… what kind of writing do you do?

      • E.D. says:

        I’m in Mumbai. Have written a couple of books related to local politics and culture, history. Have been editing magazines and books since 1990. Doing nicely. Work from home on my own; my time is mine. Happy to be of service in this field in whatever way I can. Have been studying the paranormal for a while now. Departed loved ones connect from time to time, sometimes in voice directly in my ears, at times in a semi-dream state. Have seen them physically in various stages. Deeply interested in the afterlife. Have had several OBEs over the years and one NDE in 2004. Got another 2 years and three months of life left. Happy to make myself useful.


        • Mark Macy says:

          Thanks for the information, Gayatri.
          I am considering developing a basic international website as described in this article.
          If so, there could be some interesting possibilities for a good wordsmith like you, in India.
          If it’s not too personal… what happens in 2 years and 3 months? (Intrigued)

          • E.D. says:

            I have been given the information that end of 2017 is possibly my exit point. I’m perfectly healthy, and not too old, but I’m needed there. Of course, I’m delighted! At times I’m shown my own self doing some sort of work related to inter-dimensional communication from there. Have always been interested in that. There’s much work to be done in that field, whether from here or there, but then you know all about it!

    • Mark Macy says:

      Thanks for that background, Gayatri.
      I’ve read about various Hindu mystics who knew in advance of the date of their passage from Earth to spirit… and it fascinates me. Our spirit friends have told us that from their view earthly time is just an illusion, and they have great difficulty making accurate predictions of future events on specific dates.
      If you’re able to make a natural, peaceful exit the end of next year as planned… congratulations to you!… and enjoy paradise!
      I know that if I were in your position, based on my experience with time-based predictions over the years… I wouldn’t be surprised or overly disappointed to find myself still walking the Earth in 2020. 🙂
      So, wishing you Godspeed,

      • E.D. says:

        🙂 thank you. One can only hope for the best! I’ll be kept here till the time I am needed but I personally await the beloved spirit world. Any way, whether it is for another 2 plus years or 20 plus, I’m available for this work if you ever need me! It would be an honour to be of some service in this field.

        • Mark Macy says:

          Exactly how I feel. I love family and friends and my work here on Earth with ITC and afterlife research… but I’m ready for paradise ANYtime. Till then there’s plenty to keep me busy… lots of good feelings to share with loved ones….No rush (and nothing personal to the planet and its people), but getting off this at-times-wretched world will be a blessing.
          I probably won’t be assembling a new ITC group on this side in my remaining years, but I’ll probably finish up some preliminary work… develop a multilingual website, start collecting contact information for people who seem to resonate with the project, that sort of thing.
          Then the real work will probably be done by two or three serious researchers who may or may not want to take advantage of those resources… fleshing out the website… (in the words of a popular holiday song here in the States) using the list, checking it twice, gonna’ find out who’s naughty and nice…. 🙂

  7. Guitarplayergeorge says:

    I’m still trying to figure out what “right speech” is supposed to mean.

    • Mark Macy says:

      Hi George,
      That’s a great question.
      I think it probably traces back to the Buddhist idea of an 8-fold path, which involves eight ways to do things “right.” (right view, right intention, right speech, right action…)
      Of course, a Buddhist’s view of “right action” is different from the Pentagon’s view of “right action”… noble on one hand, savage on the other… so I’m thinking this idea of “right speech” is PROBABLY along the lines of what the Buddhists have in mind.


  8. Christina Ratcliffe says:

    Dear Mark,
    We heard with the utmost dismay on our regular Afterlife Global Gathering Zoom last Sunday (www.httpps:// that you had lost your house and all belongings to the sudden onslaught of the recent wildfire. I heartily the report is a furphy, because a less deserving person would be hard to find, but if this is the spiritual kick up the backside that will propel you to Level 4+, I wish you unprecedented resignation and resilience, and the gratitude of your ITC collaborators for your well-thought out plans for their contribution. I couldn’t think of a more acceptable reason to postpone your active participation and allow good friends to support the cause while you rethink your future. With sincere thanks for your indefatigable lifetime of service to the Light.

    • Mark Macy says:

      Hi Christina, no furphy* here 🙂 …

      I described the fire and its impact on us (Regina and me) in my latest article…

      I plan to keep doing what I’ve been doing—writing about ITC and afterlife (but no longer experimenting… not for some 20 years, since I haven’t yet mastered the unwavering trust, kindness, and sincerity that allow a good experimenter to sustain a resonant bridge with finer spirit; political animosities and intense competitiveness here in the States have made it difficult for me, even while Regina and I work daily to detach from all that stuff, but I digress…).

      My writing will probably slow down a bit as we pull our lives back together, but I’ll have to keep writing or my life will feel kind of empty. 🙂 Anyway, as you say, there’s a growing community of dedicated afterlife researchers around the world who are steadily opening up the veil. Things seems to be moving along especially well in Australia, thanks largely to Victor.

      As for me getting booted up to level 4+ by adversities like the fire?… as Shakespeare (or the late Joseph Furphy) might say, “I would it were true.” I think it’s more likely that I’ll awaken at level 3 like most everyone else, and then be asked to continue with ITC from the other side. It’s all guesswork at this point, though. (Maybe I WILL get settled in the Summerland, woo-hoo, but I’m not counting on it; more likely that I’ll be allowed to visit once in a while.)

      Thanks for your kind comments, Christina,

      *readers outside Australia (like me) might find this unfamiliar word interesting…
