Electronic Voice Phenomenon recordings are made by recording controlled static. Occasionally, one hears sounds that are like human speech. For some the voices are simply subjective interpretations, for others, the voices are a possible means of communication with the dead. This paper briefly describes a recent work of the Einstein's Brain Project referencing the ideas in EVP to examine ways in which we transform worlds, and bodies in worlds, through pareidolia, apophenia and the gestalt effect.
