I agree, Mac--but if we had such a form of communication, we likely wouldn't need the Stations in the first place. Those working with the Station have been known to go through other channels when they have needed to get an urgent message across. For example, when Craig and the other researchers were having trouble connecting early on, those at the Station alerted Susanne Wilson to the problem while Roberta was having a reading with her; they knew that the message would then get passed along to Craig. Craig also interviews a spirit named Marlene, who is working with the Brazilian Station--Sonia Rinaldi then translates the responses. So, I would say that those in Spirit are trying, Mac, but a perfect alternative for communication doesn't exist.
