Does anyone know how far back the idea of ghosts as recordings on time actually goes?
- first official articulation of the "stone tape" theory in 1961, though a similar idea ("place memories") was apparently proposed in 1940
I wonder to what degree the emergence of the idea can be connected to the spread (and increased ease) of audio recording technology?
