Trans-Time Photography Photographing the Far Past - How I Discovered it is Possible

This article was written by Jane Tripp 

Paranormal Photography
It's an amazing experience to be able to see evidence of interdimensional life-forms in a photograph or on video footage. Some psychic photographers are physical mediums. This is a genuine category of physical mediumship, but rather than communicating with spirits and entities from other dimensions through trance or direct voice contact, this unusual gift allows spirits and trans-dimensionals to communicate via photography instead.

I have this ability and can take transdimensional photographs in which many unusual and fascinating anomalies can be found. I can take photographs that contain, among other things, spirits of people and animals, as well as elemental forms, scenes, UFOs and cloaked craft.

But by far the most exciting aspect of this psychic function for me lies in my ability to take photos that access scenes from the past, and more rarely, the future. This means I'm photographing through time and space.

Seeing the Past
Being able to view the past is a subject that fascinates me perhaps more than any other. The idea of being able to actually see a genuine photographic image from the past is beyond intriguing.

There have been a surprising number of people in the last hundred years or so who have claimed to have created working time cameras, and my own belief is that it is perfectly possible, has already been done several times, and will be accomplished again.

But there is another way to gather visual data from the past, and it is not common knowledge that this can be done. In fact, hardly anyone is aware that it is even a remote possibility, let alone that there are photographic examples available to look at.

Trans-Time Photography
Sometimes re-runs of past events become available in the environment and sometimes, they can even be photographed. Video footage of the target area improves this ability dramatically, as the best way to reveal scenes from the past is by taking screen photos off the footage as it is being played back.

The resulting photographs frequently display trans-time imagery - genuine pictures of past events.

Although as a transdimensional photographer I can usually receive trans-time images by photographing video footage of places rich in history and emotional past events, I'm not yet able to discover the exact mechanism through which this ability functions.

Spirit Photography
Trans-time images are different from the paranormal images that appear in ordinary spirit photographs, but these phenomena are both found most abundantly where dramatic events involving many people and a range of strong emotions have occurred in the past.

The images can appear as scenes, vignettes and also in what are known as 'globules', tiny little bubble-like formations which can often carry detailed pictures of people, buildings and landscape within them.

Size differences vary widely, and as in all varieties of paranormal photo anomalies, they can appear large
enough to cover the entire surface of the photo or be almost microscopically tiny. They can also appear upside down and sideways in an image.

Under certain circumstances the photographic pictures can even display as negative images that have to be cropped and flipped to positive in a photo-editing program in order to be seen clearly. They can even be situated next to a positive image on the same picture.

This phenomenon occurs with other forms of transdimensional photography as well. I've not yet discovered how this polarizing happens, but have found it to be a fairly common result.

How the Past May be 'Stored'
I believe from my own experiences, along with studies based on the work of other people, that every event that takes place on Earth, from the most insignificant to the most noteworthy, is permanently stored holographically, saved as light and sound bites, giving us retrievable visual and auditory data, if we can only come to comprehend the mechanism by which that data can be released.

But it's also possible that they are stored in a more temporary fashion as well, within the matrices of
materials which act as storage units for event-records, perhaps giving two possible ways of future retrieval:

from the original permanent holographic data-storage system for all records in existence
from temporary localized storage available around us within natural landscape features, architecture and objects.

The Stone Tape Theory
Stone, wood, water - anything that has form - could theoretically become a temporary storage unit for light and sound records. 

Obviously, some materials would store records more efficiently than others, and all such data would be subject to disintegration with the breaking down of the storage materials over time.

The stone tape theory was put forward in the 1970's as a new explanation for ghosts and residual hauntings. It was theorized that records from the past were absorbed by materials in their surroundings, especially if they were fuelled by strong emotions and traumatic events.

The Stone Tape Play
In fact, a BBC television play was broadcast as an atmospheric ghost story during the Christmas season of 1972, called simply 'The Stone Tape'. This was possibly the first use of the term 'stone tape' in reference to this fascinating phenomena, and it was after the title of the play that the stone tape theory was later named. The play was written by Nigel Kneale, and for the times it was produced in, it really was fairly good, apart from the rather dramatic over-acting.

In the story, a team of scientists move into a gothic mansion which had been built on top of much earlier foundations and subsequently renovated many times over the centuries. They are there in order to experiment with the idea of retrieving information from the stones in a room where builders have refused to work because of a haunting involving a woman who died tragically in the location  many years before. Using their scientific equipment they strive to find a way to unlock the data and replay the emotionally-charged events. Finding themselves unable to accomplish this with their instruments alone, they hit upon the idea that a human agency and some play-acting might be necessary to prompt the release of the 'rerun'.

Of course it all ends tragically, but some of the basic ideas in the story align very closely to the mysterious truth of the matter. Past data can be retrieved, and although this will one day be possible to achieve using specially designed and standardized instruments, it is also possible today, using video footage, photography and human intervention.

A Human Agency
In my own work I have discovered just how important human agency is in revealing such fascinating anomalies. Without a mechanical means of play-back, trans-time images have to be first photographed by a psychic with physical mediumship abilities, and then the images must be coaxed from the photograph with editing techniques and prepared for viewing.

Problems With Understanding Storage and Release of Data
Specific events can trigger a release of this nature, and active paranormal activity can occur. Phenomena can be auditory, visual of both. Sounds such as voices or footsteps may be heard. People, animals and objects can witnessed. Sometimes an entire scene can be re-played. 

This may include seeing events, either silently or with sound, or just hearing them with no visual input. Sometimes the olfactory senses are stimulated and strong scents such as perfume or tobacco can be experienced. These replays are non-interactive. It's more like experiencing a movie than a real event. A residual haunting of this nature does not have a present reality. The actions that precipitated the storage of the records are over, and the people who were once involved are no longer present as spirits.

It's considered that the method of storage may be electro-magnetic, and I also think that this may be the case, at least in part. It makes sense, but nothing is yet known with any certainty and there is probably far more involved. 

Some researcher's with greater scientific understanding than myself think that this is not the case, and it remains to be seen.

Disturbing Construction Sites
This provides one explanation for the well-known phenomenon of paranormal disturbance that can  occur when a building or other structure is altered or remodeled, leading to a spate of 'ghostly' activity involving sightings and auditory phenomena.

This may be perceived as a haunting, when in fact it is more likely to be caused by the release of past
records from original materials as they are disturbed during construction, and associated phenomena will usually not continue for very long.

More than one construction crew has quit in the face of unexplained paranormal antics that have scared and unsettled workers as they went about their business. There is plenty of research available for those who would like to explore the subject further, and some cases are well documented.

Eerie phenomena have occurred in which inexplicable and seemingly impossible events have taken
place, such as elevators that continued to go up and down even when their power source was

This type of activity does not correlate to our present understanding of physics and is often enough to scare some people away for good.

Experiencing these replays can be a little bit unnerving, but they cannot harm anybody. It's also true that although they can be accidently triggered, nobody has so far formulated any standard procedure for releasing these residual records, let alone recording them as they are released.

Photographing the Past?
But I am stating that scenes from the past can be resurrected and brought to life once more in a specific way. It's possible and it has already been achieved.

Genuine images of people and scenes who lived long ago can actually be made visible again, photographically, as they once appeared, and I have provided incredible evidence that this startling
assertion is the truth.

If you view my work with trans-time photography you will see something very, very special - fascinating images of the past that have been extracted from video footage of historical locations.

Photographed directly from the screen as the video footage played, the edited pictures reveal haunting
trans-time images, details from an ancient world, in color, embedded in locations such as the original walls of buildings that are centuries old.

How I Discovered the Truth About the Past
When I first taught myself how to edit photographs containing paranormal images I had no idea just how deeply my explorations would take me into the twilight zone.

I had of course seen and examined the evidence in other people's photographs, but only a few pictures of this type were (or are) available, and frankly I already had more of my own anomalous trans-time images than all the accessible work from other people's experiments with cameras put together.

I had still to fully realize the implications of my own discoveries. Although I had always been interested in and recognized the validity of the stone tape theory, I hadn't experimented seriously with trans-time photography myself. 

I had taken photographs which displayed trans-time imagery before, but this was a spontaneous phenomenon over which I had no control.

What I hadn't done was to experiment exclusively with trans-time photography, with the sole purpose
of extracting trans-time images of the past from specific surroundings that had historically witnessed a lot of emotional past activity.

Photographs of Pompeii
With this in mind I decided to target an area and time period that is well-known in the annals of history for one single devastating event - its utter destruction through a cataclysmic event almost 2,000 years ago.

The ruins of Pompeii turned out to be a perfect selection. The entire city had been completely covered in the debris from the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, preserving the town under many feet of ash and cinders.

It lay undiscovered and forgotten for centuries and only fairly recently has a section of the remains been properly excavated. It is from video footage of these archeological remains that my raw material was sourced.

How I Photograph Images from the Far Past
Such images can be extracted from many materials, including wood, but the one which seem to store residual records most efficiently seem to be stone. 

My discoveries so far indicate that walls are the most reliable target from which to extract past records visually. Very old stone buildings and walls with old plaster still adhering have so far proved to be the perfect media for storage and subsequent retrieval of trans-time images.

Other people have experimented with the retrieval of sound, but as far as I'm aware nobody has extracted images of the past with any repeatable success.

The process of re-photographing video footage made at target sites provides the scenes from the past.

The Psychic Factor
At present there is no known system that will reliably extract images of the past from video footage in a mechanical way. I'm certain that this will be possible in the not too far distant future, but for now the only way I know in which to accomplish this is through the intervention of a psychic photographic medium such as myself.

As a psychic and a physical medium, I don't enter into trance or channel information for people. I do produce ectoplasm. My gift manifests most strongly when I take photographs. In the old-fashioned language of spiritualism, the veil parts for me, and I'm able to photograph interdimensionally.

Many of these photos contain real-time interactions with human spirits and other trans-dimensional 
entities. But they are perhaps even more special when they contain trans-time images - genuine photographic pictures of the past.

Extraction of Imagery
Once the images have been preserved on a photo the next task is to extract the visual data via editing 
techniques that have been designed to excavate through layers of imagery, isolating the clearest scenes and figures and revealing the details, sometimes minutely.

This editing method allows even very tiny details, such as the iris and pupil of a person's eye or a detail of jewelry they are wearing, to be revealed. The images are preserved in color, allowing a good approximation of the color palette at the time the original parent image data was stored.

Future Work in the Field of Trans-Time Photography
Over the course of the next few years I will be producing and releasing a variety of different books and documents about trans-time photography. I will be targeting interesting places and historical events in order to bring the most exciting and verifiable information to people.

I will also be attempting to teach other people how to retrieve these records and edit them out of the photographic images that they take for themselves. It's my belief that a certain percentage of people, like myself, will be able to retrieve such visual data photographically. 

This photographic evidence of images preserved from times long past may not provide proof, except on an individual and personal basis, but it will open up a brand new field of study that promises some absolutely thrilling results. Who wouldn't want to see the past?
