Dr. Stephen Rorke has lectured on developmental psychology, cognition, theoretical and applied physics, and EVP as a subset of ITC (Instrumental Trans-Communication) with potential implications for the theoretical physics community regarding the existence of multiple dimensions beyond the standard model. His most recent studies include the application of information theory, persuasion theory and certain aspects of psychology to the paranormal. Dr. Rorke proposes best-evidence standards in paranormal research, and leads the way with his conclusive investigation of the enduring Spiricom mystery. Dr. Stephen Rorke has advocated for nearly a decade that "the role of science should be to investigate the unexplained, not explain the uninvestigated."

Scientific investigator Dr. Stephen Rorke discussed the field of instrumental transcommunication (ITC), of which EVP (electronic voice phenomena) is a subset. Of particular focus, was his study of the Spiricom case. Popularized as "the most convincing evidence of two-way communication with the dead," the Spiricom was a device that incorporated a radio transmitter/receiver with 13 audio oscillators that approximated the tonal range of an adult male voice. Built in 1980 by George W. Meek, the Spiricom was operated by William O'Neil who allegedly contacted the spirit of George Mueller, a deceased NASA employee. Rorke found inconsistencies in the Spiricom story and evidence that O'Neil had ventriloquist skills, and may have used them to create a second voice by manipulating an electric larynx. Audio clips, such as one by created by Dr. David Rivers, were played, demonstrating the similarity of the Spiricom recordings and someone using an electric larynx in an "incorrect way." Tho ...
