We see that we are bringing a text.
The copies available to the author of the original printouts of abnormal computer texts of BODEN, WEBSTER, and CETL reveal several common features. Their evolution from short ‘dismembered’ forms to continuous texts several pages long is analogous to that of the audio phenomena that have developped from brief VOT to DEAV lasting several minutes, as well as to the progress of transvideo frozen frames of 1/25 sec. duration to rather long sequences (see A-6.6 and B-9.6).
In the BODEN case, during the attempt to start a previously checked biorhythm program running on the computer system of his friend W., the first malfunctions were noticed in form of irregular alternations between capitals and small letters (F-38.7). The same effect occurred initially at WEBSTER (F-38.9), and at CETL (F-39.11.4), notwithstanding the fact that the (word-processing) programs had been prepared exclusively for capital letters. In all three instances, this effect disappeared some time later.
At BODEN, additional signals appeared in the form of groups of letters interspersed in listings, of which each turned out to be modified. The frequency of appearance, length, and variety of contents increased over a period of several weeks. After an announcement of BODEN’s death date and his way to die, and a brief ‘dialogue’ in writing, the experimenters stopped the experiments.
The abbreviations phase did not occur in the WEBSTER and CETL cases, but, similar to the BODEN case, in the initial phase parts of words and entire words were separated by rather large spacings and blank lines. The later texts were continuous, at WEBSTER with the usual spaces between the words, partly with, partly without punctuation; CETL’s had no word spaces and in their majority no punctuation, later the texts were written correctly. With HOMES, at first there were no spaces between the words, the sentences were separated by oblique strokes. Irregularities in the succession of lines, and their numbers, occurred frequently. On October 2nd, 1994, MAJO spaced the words for the first time. Shortly later the oblique strokes were substituted by full stops. In the case of ALFIERI (A-6.6), the layout of the normal computer texts was substantially retained on the printouts, and the whole, or part of the original texts, were replaced by faultless TX. Due to the generally very low error rate, the comprehensibility of TX surpasses ace high that of most of the transvoices, in particular of VOT.

Ill. 16: ERROR RATES AND TEXT LENGTHS IN THE COURSE OF THE FIRST COMPUTER CONTACTS (BODEN 10/1980 to 12/1980)
back to TOP
BODEN’s additional meaningful groups of letters frequently were obtained from a changing of letters of the original text (or a replacing by others). A long meaningful sentence with spiritualistic content was formed through omissions made to the original text. On the whole, the changes can be described as intelligently controlled (learning) processes. Ill. 16 shows how in the course of time the number of abbreviations and errors decreased to zero, and the number of words and integral word groups increased in a slope. Cannot be overlooked the tendency towards a reliable transmission of important contents as a result of new outsets made again and again, plus a high level of redundancy (repetitions and varying formulations of the same bearings); see F-38.11.3.
The linguistic forms of the TXs which WEBSTER received from Tomas HARDEN and 2109 differred clearly. HARDEN employed exclusively an old English local dialect of the 16th century, group 2109 wrote faulty modern English, sometimes modified into antiquated speech. SALTER’s long messages to CETL, and those transmitted by the different communicators to HOMES, were and are put down in correct German. Together with personal statements woven into her messages, the unorthodox style of TE SALTER relieved clearly from that of the TECHNIKER, and that of RAUDIVE.
An assessment of the rates and kinds of errors of the computer texts transmitted to CETL and HOMES furnished results (Ill. 17/18) of unclear implications. The error rates resulted at 0.3 %. The frequency of predominant kinds of errors was found to have decreased (referred to a total of 300 errors at CETL, resp. 95 errors at HOMES):
Whereas at CETL practically no orthography and grammar mistakes were found, their share at HOMES amounts to 15 %. Regarding the repartition of missing and additional letters, clear differences resulted between the texts that have come through at CETL and HOMES respectively.
|MISSING SINGLE LETTERS||54 %||39 %|
|ADDITIONAL LETTERS NOT ADJACENT ON THE KEYBOARD||31 %||19 %|
|ADDITIONAL LETTERS ADJACENT ON THE KEYBOARD||21 %||6 %|
|SWAPS OF LETTERS ADJACENT ON THE KEYBOARD||15 %||4 %|
|E 50%||R 43%||E 37%||M 14%|
|T 10%||E 16%||S 25%||E 14%|
|N 9%||T 11%||I 12%||
|S 8%||S 8%||R 5%||D 10%|
|R 6%||N 0%||M 5%||R 10%|
Ill: 18: MISSING AND ADDITIONAL LETTERS IN TRANSTEXTS
Striking (among other items) is the raised missing of the E at CETL, and the R at HOMES, which strongly diverges from the relative frequency of appearance of these letters in the German language (E 17%, N 10%, I 8%, R 8%, S 6%, T 5%, A 5%, H 5%). Considering the relatively small total having served as a basis, plus possible statistical fluctuations, these data should not be overvalued; on the other hand, the deviations from the expected values are too high for leaving them unmentioned here.
The difficulties involved with a description of the internal procedures by which TXs are ‘imprinted’ on our computer systems are indicated in B-9.6. An understanding of the precise triggering of space-time dynamical processes is best approached with TI and the experience gained, at the best when pre-supposing the operation of at least as fast activities. The pinpointed variations of the amplitudes and phases of analogue signals would correspond to the keying and blanking, or to the time-shifting of digital pulses, Mikrobit, Delta, Takt, Raster (Microbit, delta, cycle/intermittence, basic grid/screen), (in mathematics and physics, ‘delta’ stands for minor differences). According to more recent TI however, is more probable the suppostion that higher-dimensional, holistic linkages elude our crude two-valued logic: Das ist andere Logik, und das ist doch ein Problem. (That’s (a) different logic, and that certainly is a problem.)
Very interesting is TE TESLA’s reaction to questions referring to this issue, posed in a mediumistically transmitted dialogue with W.S. and the author on March 28th, 1992 (see F-37.10).
