Thomas Edison: RESURRECTOR

The Kindle eBook Now 99 Cents for the Duration of the Coronavirus Pandemic

“I believe that if our personality survives, then it is strictly logical or scientific to assume that it contains memory, intellect and other faculties and knowledge that we acquire here on this earth. Therefore, if personality exists after what we call death it’s reasonable to conclude that those who leave the Earth would like to communicate with those that they have left here. I am inclined to believe that our personality hereafter will be able to affect matter. If this reasoning be correct, then, if we can evolve an instrument as delicate as to be affected, or moved, or manipulated by our personality as it survives in the next life, such an instrument, when completed, ought to receive something from the other side.” Thomas A. Edison ..AND WHY NOT BRING THEM BACK… An electrocution… An otherworldly voice on an early recording… A psychic engineer… A murdered heiress… A secret lab hiding machinery to resurrect the dead… A modern day practitioner of ancient Egyptian black magic… The plan is in place, but something goes horribly wrong…
