Members of a group dedicated to building a device to facilitate communication with spirits on the other side held their inaugural meeting at UTS on August 8, 2007. The group pledged financial support to research and development of such a device. Development a "Spirit World Machine" has been an expressed desire of Rev. Moon for more than 20 years.
The group reviewed research by Peter Nordquist of WRIST, a company which Rev. Moon set up for this purpose; and also the work of Spiricom and others who have sought to develop reliable communication devices. A preliminary research plan to replicate Spiricom was approved, and several participants donated over $1000 to underwrite the cost of equipment.
One member summarized the purpose of the group's endeavor as follows: 1. Discover what frequency characterizes the mediumistic connection to the spiritual world 2. Get a connection to spirit world that’s so reliable that even a skeptic can acknowledge it 3. Create a channel that can comfort the heart of those who have lost a loved one by enabling two way communication 4. Make steps towards restoring the lost spiritual senses to humankind 5. Restore the sense that character development (ie. First Blessing) is an essential purpose of physical life 6. Create a channel enabling cooperation between scientists in the spirit world and scientists in the physical world in the accomplishment of the Third Blessing.
The meeting was hosted by Dr. Andrew Wilson; in attendance were Peter Nordquist of Glens Falls, David Burton from University of Bridgeport (a frequent contributor to JUS), Sara Hosfall from University of Texas (taught Sociology of Religion at UTS), Henry Christopher, Allison Byer, Kazuko Walton, and Susan Hermann.
