COTTON WOOL SPIDER WEBS AND STAGE MAGICIANS LED's? Commenting a recent Psychic News article


We would like to react onto a Psychic News article recently published and unfortunately being full of mistakes.
Sadly the Psychic News was seemingly not interested to talk to us directly, who we could have saved them to provide false information to their readers.

The relationship between the Felix Circle and the Psychic News is not the best since we omitted to set our medium under the strict holding control of one of their editors during a demonstration for the Gordon Higginson Fellowship. You are usually not letting people you don t know very well close to the medium during the most sensitive deep trance states. But we were urged to do it, allegedly to enable this particular editor to write about us at all.
But even though the medium was stripsearched beforehand and the controls were unbroken, in the following unexplainable stories about alleged fraud made the round, and the announced article was never written, what gave many the impression, as if during the control of editor S.F. something went not right, what was not the case. In the contrary, most sitters for the first time experienced strong quality physical mediumship under the undisputable hands-on control for the first time.
The promise to write about the session if we were willing to set our medium under editor S.F.'s control was never hold. An announced and scheduled promised explanation was never given.

In the meantime these stories are several years old and we are carrying no grudge around with us, but we are somehow not surprised, that PN now comes with a, by many long awaited, article about the Felix Circle when theorizations of an investigator - how certain mediumistic phenomena could have been faked - are seemingly undermining three years of succcesful and very controlled scientific research mainly done by Prof. Stephen Braude, a leading US investigator, who called the results 'historical' with no hesitation after the last experimental sessions were held in the most strictest environment of a Séanceroom-Laboratory in Austria and with who we uphold good contact, expecting to experiment further next year.

FEG Medium K.M. extruding ectoplasm after extensive stripsearch by two scientists on the mediums naked body. Medium drank dark tea additionally previously. It was theorized that what we see here is actually a regurgigation of Halloween Spider Webs. Is this a Halloween Spider Web?
The first large mistake is right there in the first chapter:
(Quote) The most striking feature of FEG Seances in recent years has been the seeming production of ectoplasm, extruded in large quantities from the mediums mouth. Prof. Braude has witnessed this and showed a photograph. In this a pale substance could be seen streaming from the mediums mouth and falling to the floor in a heap (...). The Professor said he saw the heap moving (by itself, the editor). He drew attention to a hand, visible at the mediums right, which was pulling the 'ectoplasm' into several strands - it was Muegge himself doing the pulling. (Quote end)

We cannot say, who is responsible for this false construct of an event that never happened as described by PN.
Meanwhile Braude actually observed the huge amounts of material extruding from the mediums mouth and afterwards observed the heap moving by itself he then saw 'a hand sprouting' (quote Braude) from the moving heap on the floor, with moving fingers and lively features, finally waving to the sitters.

This hand appeared from floor level (!) and had no connection whatsoever to the mediums arms and hands visible in the red light phase the ectoplasmic extrusion is presented in.
That Braude observed the medium pulling 'strands of ectoplasm' was a totally other occasion.
And 'the hand of the medium' was never discovered doing something it should not, as it is slightly indicated in the last sentence of the quoted PN-paragraph above.
The hand-building and erection ...
...photographed in stages...
...by professional photographer Shannon Taggart...
...in 2013...
...or as seen by artist D.Gross (c) in 2012...

...or during a demonstration 2010...
...or as photographed coming more from under chair of medium by Tom Butler of the American Transcommunication Association also 2011. SPIDER WEBS?
'Mistakes' like that are there many in the PN article but we want eventually take clear position to the theories about having fraudulently used 'a stage-magic LED device' as 'spirit lights' and cotton wool based 'Halloween Spider Webs' for ectoplasm, as mentioned in the PN article.

To understand the right context and the difference between theory and what actually occurred over three years of investigation we will give some basic facts in regards to the Braude investigation:
The Circles Medium has a worldwide name of trustworthiness that has to do with his personality, but even more with the transparent work in regards to the strict medium control he is allowing and which sets the controllers over the whole séance IN DIRECT HANDS-ON CONTACT WITH THE MEDIUM, HOLDING IT AT ALL HIS LIMBS.
That hands-on control was it that Braude motivated to get in contact with us.

So from the beginning on and during the investigation
1. the Circles Medium submitted to 'work' under these specific and exclusively tight control-conditions, namely under 'hands-on'-control' (all four limbs - hands, legs, feet - held and controlled by attending scientists) during the passive and active (!) phases of the phenomena, repeatedly occurring everywhere in the room and in considerable distance to/from the held medium.
2. Additionally the medium was stripsearched on the naked body before and after séances, when for example huge masses of ectoplasm were extruded, operated autonomously in front of the medium and the researchers and disappeared again afterwards (f.e. Austria 2013).
3. During the whole three years of controlled experimentation there was never the slightest hint for fraud. In the contrary.
Everything was made totally transparent and accessable for the investigators.
4. Under this protocol and strictest controls the mediumship of K.M. produced different strong phenomena over the years of investigation.
Some of them ruled out the mere possibility of fraud due to their extraordinary nature or due to the circumstances under which they occurred. Some of the phenomena were filmed.
5. The in the report discussed fraud hypothesises (see section 'Allegations' below) are theory and not backed up by any experimental findings during the three years of investigation!!!
6. Prof. Braude is seeking for - and urging us to submit to - further experimentation because the
    value of this mediumship is obvious for every researcher who dares to handle the subject.

Full Table Levitation filmed from beginning to end with controlled medium (hands and feet of Professores Braude and Soederling on mediums hands and feet). In the first frame of the clip are all hands clearly visible on the table. In this frame the table has levitated to chin/head-height...
...and is seeing here in this frame lowering back to ground level. But because the thumb of the medium is not visible in all stages the clip is dismissed by some. As we are showing regularly in our workshops it of course does not matter at all if a thumb is visible because a person could never let a table of this size and weight (plus the weight of the sitters hands) levitate completely by thumb. So what the clip is actually showing is one of the genuine results of the Braude Investigation, the Full Levitation of a table in red light...!
Another undisputable phenomenon was when after Braude told the medium for the first time he took an apported 'foil' from another case as an 'anchor-object' into the séance-room the moment they were entering, he added that the foil is made of 99% of copper. Minutes later the medium fell into trance and his guides explained that they manifested pure copper because of the focus object Braude had brought in. Then the medium was held and the investigators checked many times the hand by vision and touch from which suddenly the object, a copper nugget, fell with a loud bang onto the tables surface.
Allegations

'Spirit Lights are produced by a stage-magicians device!' 
Answer:
All around the world observers have described flickering and strong lights (up to three and four simultanously) sometimes in different colors - flying independently in distances up to 10 feet and more from the at hands and feet held medium through the darkened room, interact with sitters, disappear into the floor, show acrobatic skills in high speeds.
No magic device is capable to do so!
The by Braudes co-investigator mentioned device allows different colored lights to fly closely around a magician. The magician controls them with his hands.
In FEG Séances multiple colored lights appear in huge distances from the at hands and feet held (!) medium. Moreover these lights does not seem to look at all like LED. They have different sizes and forms, sometimes look cloudy, sometimes pinpointed.
Different skilled magicians like the US investigator Loyd Auerbach have sat with us and all of them were stating they could not detect any known forms of stage magicianship! Moreover they have outlined the obvious differences in approach and presentation.
This especially became obvious in the presentation of a fake séance by a professional magician in Basle, Switzerland, who had previously sat with K.M. and who declared he had no idea how to fake the mediums phenomena he had observed.
 
'Ectoplasm is raw cotton wool resp. Halloween spider webs made of such!' 
Answer:
No halloween spider webs can be extruded from the medium in such large volume as demonstrated, nor can it breathe laying on the floor, move, sprout, build a variety of forms, embryo-like, animal-like, produce objects, create handforms moving, waving, wearing rings, even heads and faces that are partially indentified by sitters as loved ones, uprising columns and more - in front of the eyes of sitters worldwide. No cotton wool spider webs can do this, unregarded in which quantity. With this any further theories in regards to spider webs are annulled. Moreover it was known to Braude that members of the circle 2012 had for informational reasons experimented with different substances to show and educate in videos produced for the blog that raw cotton wool substances do not behave like genuine mediumistic ectoplasm during séances!
Ectoplasm 1926 photographed under the chin of Stanislawa P., one of Schrencks main mediums on whose phenomena 'Phenomena of Materialization' was mainly based upon.
Ectoplasm 2013 filmed under the chin of medium K.M., filmed by Robert Narholz, part of the Braude Investigation Team, during a séance in the rooms of the Basle PSI Association. SPIDER WEBS?
Ectoplasmic column growing in front of sitters eyes in red light! SPIDER WEBS?
One more frame from the filmed ectoplasmic extrusion and presented 'veil'-phenomenon in front of the Investigators. The medium is fully enwrapped by the substance originating from the heap on the ground. The material is etherically thin and you can not even see it is there if it weren t observed in that way by the researchers. SPIDER WEBS?
The PN is at least mentioning that it is even Braudes opinion, that raw cotton wool based material does not at all explain the main features of the genuine ectoplasmic phenomena:
- How is the alleged material produced in masses from the mediums mouth?
- If it is actually a process of regurgitation, why does the presented material NEVER show any
  stains or smells of unavoidable nature (Braude smelled during the Austrian 'Laboratory'-sessions at
  the material that had no odor)?
- If the material shows no signs of coming from the inner body, where is it during the hundreds of
  stripsearches previously to séances and during post-examinations of the meidums body (many
  times Mediums wife was stripsearched as well and seperated strictly from the medium, for
  example during the Austria-sessions, that produced huge quantities of substance)?

K.M.s ectoplasm is known for taking the forms of faces and heads of friends and relatives of sitters worldwide and of the spirit team itself, like it has happened in Dec. 2012, when al three faces were identified and we were provided in the following by photos of the spirit visitors during their earth-times by their attending relatives...
...like in this example, showing a person, representing the spirit face in the middle above...!
Control Spirit 'Hans Bender' showing his face within the 'fine matter', as he calls it. On the left of his face and slightly higher an indian head with long hair is visible looking to the right side. SPIDER WEBS?
With the presented arguments and photos we believe we can put this unholy discussion to rest.

What is not at all mentioned here is the work and the involvement of the spirits.
They have immediately opened opportunities that were unaccessable until the allegations became public.

For example they have started to allow sitters to regularly touch ectoplasm or excavate embedded objects from it.
Flower with water drops and living ant excavated from ectoplasm after having appeared in it with a flash. It was raining outside...
The sensations experienced by the involved are considerable: Even though the material looks oftentimes on first sight dry it appears extremely cold and damp, if not wet, and sticky when people come in contact with or try to excavate materialized objects from it.
These objects, from flowers to crystals, are like grown into the material and it takes minutes to excavate them from uncountable umbilical cord like connections that adhere in right angles at the embedded objects.

 Such observations are so striking and strange besides many others that we can only underline our invitations to all honestly and open interested parties to come and experience the real wonders from a real spirit world yourselves!

Two Materialization Seances with Kai M. in 2014 - by Jan W. Vandersande, Ph. D.



 I was very fortunate to have had the well-known German materialization medium, Kai M., and his wife Julia come to the Los Angeles area for two séances on July 19 and 20, 2014. This article will provide a brief background on materializations and describe in detail the amazing events of our two séances.
 I will describe the events of a séance from beginning to end with events from of the two nights overlapping.

 Materialization, especially full-body materialization, is the rarest of all reported paranormal physical phenomena. Portions of human bodies, such as hands, which move, grasp, carry things, etc., or entire bodies which speak, breath and walk like living beings materialize (i.e. form) from ectoplasm. Ectoplasm is a whitish substance which comes from the medium’s body through one or more orifices such as the nose, ears, mouth and/or the solar plexus.
When ectoplasm is initially expelled from the medium it looks transparent, like fine silk. This silk-like looking ectoplasm then solidifies into partial or full materializations of spirit entities or into a rod-like shape that moves the trumpet (a megaphone typically one to two feet long). The ectoplasm always returns to the medium’s body after the materializations are finished.

Baron Freiherr von Schrenck Notzing (Phenomena of Materialization) and Charles Richet 1906
Ectoplasm was given its name by Professor Charles Richet in 1905, when he was president of the Society for Psychical Research. He derived the name from the Greek word meaning “exteriorized substance”. The German authority Baron von Schenk-Notzing, who called it “teleplasma” produced a chemical analysis (around 1913) as follows: “colorless, slightly cloudy fluid with slightly alkaline reaction, traces of sputum, mucous membrane granules, potash, cell detritus, skin discs and minute particles of flesh”. This analysis was similar to that done by Dr. Dombrowski of the Polish Society for Psychical Research in 1916. Because those analyses were done in 1913 and 1916 they could not be as sophisticated and advanced as you would find nowadays. These analyses do however support the fact that ectoplasm actually does come from the body of the medium. I have documented a large number of reports of materializations and these as well as some photographs of ectoplasm can be found in my book titled “Life After Death: Some of the Best Evidence” (Outskirts Press, 2008). Ectoplasm can be very sensitive to unexpected touching or by being exposed to white light.
There have been a few reported cases of serious injury to the medium when a sitter in a séance grabbed or shone white light on the ectoplasm. This has typically happened when a skeptic tried to unsuccessfully expose the medium for being fraudulent.

Full Body Materialization through a South African Medium in the early 70ies from Jan Vandersandes Book
Some of the best materialization mediums have produced full-body materializations in red light (which is of lower energy than white light) and a rare few have even produced materializations in white light (for examples see my book).
 Kai Muegge has been doing materialization séances for several years. Most of his séances are done in total darkness but he regularly produces ectoplasm with red light on. He mainly produces ectoplasm from his mouth/nose which then accumulates on the floor and partial forms such as hands and faces are formed. We were fortunate to observe just that and I will describe it below. I know of no cases where full materializations were formed in his seances. Hopefully he will eventually be able to do that as well.
Typical ectoplasmic Materialization of Kai M.
 Given that a materialization medium can be seriously hurt during a séance means that precautions need to be taken to ensure that no sitter grabs the ectoplasm or shines white light on it. During our séances sitters were warned before the séance that under no circumstances could they touch the ectoplasm. Also, all sitters were searched before entering the séance room. During the séance all the sitters had to hold hands in order to remove the temptation for any sitter to grab at any flying objects or the ectoplasm.
Similarly, precautions were taken to make sure that fraud on the part of the medium could be completely ruled out. I observed Kai get dressed in his séance clothes (a track suite over his naked body) in a separate room and actually searched the clothes for anything unusual before he put them on. I found nothing. I then followed him to the séance room and to his seat in his cabinet. He never left my sight. Kai sat on a chair in a small cabinet made from a PVC frame attached to the ceiling (a circle about four feet in diameter and six feet high with black curtains all around it and two curtains in the front that could be pulled to each side to open). There were 19 sitters for the first séance and 16 sitters for the second séance. The seats for the sitters were positioned in a semi-circle with the sitters facing the cabinet. Julia sat next to the cabinet on the right side and I sat next to the cabinet on the left side. The séances were held in the house of one of the sitters (Margaret Kefer). I searched the room for anything that might be used to enable Kai to see in the dark or to move the trumpet or any other objects. Nothing was found.

 With Kai seated in the cabinet and all the sitters seated, the lights were turned off after the entrance to the room was taped with black tape and black out curtain so no light at all could come into the room (as were the windows).Meditation music was then played on the CD player and Kai started his breathing routine (loud holotropic breathing) which puts him in a very deep trance.
It took about 10-15 minutes for him to be in deep trance at which time his main spirit guide (Hans Bender, a German psychologist and parapsychologist who had died in 1991) started speaking through him. At that time several raps on the ceiling above the cabinet were heard.
Hans totally controls Kai’s body. He talks using Kai’s vocal cords, he can make Kai stand up, even walk several paces, grab and hold Julia’s and my hand and move Kai in and out of the cabinet while seated. Hans was the only spirit entity to speak in both séances. Kai was moved from inside the cabinet to just in front of it and, after speaking briefly in German and then English, Hans asked for the music and for the sitters to watch the control center: an inverted plastic bucket that was taped to the floor and positioned about 3 meters in front of the cabinet. Julia had placed a tambourine, a rattle and three balls make of cork with luminous paint on them. Several familiar songs from ABBA were played and the sitters were urged to sing along to increase the energy and vibrations.

Former Head and Face Materialization of Kai M.
While the music was playing and the sitters were singing or humming along, several sitters reported being touched on their legs, arms and head and the tambourine made noise. This occurred while Kai was “controlled”: Julia held his right hand while I held his left hand. The purpose of the “control” was to rule out that Kai could be touching sitters or the tambourine or produce any of the other phenomena I will mention.
Occasionally Hans asked me to take my left hand, lean over in front of Kai and confirm that Julia’s hand was indeed holding Kai’s right hand. Hans called this “super-control” which also ruled out Julia for causing the touches or tambourine noise or any of the phenomena.
I asked Hans who was causing the touches and he replied it were materialized hands, not full bodies.

Once the tambourine stopped making a noise the three luminous balls (about an inch in diameter) started rolling around on top of the bucket and then were thrown onto the floor. Julia then picked them up using a red flashlight and placed them back on top of the bucket. Just before Julia turned the flashlight on Kai was moved back into the cabinet and was brought back out once the light was turned off. The three balls then did exactly as before and ended up on the floor again.

Hans then asked Julia to place a hankerchief on the bucket (it had seven luminous spots on it so could clearly be seen in the dark). Once the flashlight had been turned off and Kai had been moved back out in front of the cabinet and taken in control, the hankerchief started flying around the circle and went to one of the sitters who was told to hold it between the thumb and the index finger.
Then we could see that it was being pulled away from her. She was told to let go and it flew to the other side of the circle were another sitter held it up. It then flew back to the control center.

Next white lights started flying around the room. Typically you would see a light fly for about a second at a high speed, then disappear and then a second or so later appear again and do the same thing. Numerous lights were flying around the room, mainly above the sitters. This lasted several minutes while Kai was controlled the whole time.

Hans then asked Julia to place the trumpet (about a foot and a half long, made from cardboard with luminous spots around the bottom edge) at the control center. Once the red light was turned off and Kai had been moved back out in front of the cabinet to be taken in control, the trumpet started flying around the room. It flew rapidly to the ceiling, the walls and all around without hitting anything or any of the sitters. The trumpet movement was exactly as we saw with David Thompson and as my wife Marlene and I saw while we sat in South Africa for many years. In my book I discuss trumpet movement and have photographs showing how the trumpet moves (using ectoplasm attached to the medium). The movement of the balls and the trumpet occurred only during the first séance. The touching, the tambourine and the lights occurred in both.

Now the red light part of the séance on Saturday started. Julia turned on a weak red light (located on a small table next to Julia) while Kai sat on his chair in front of the cabinet. Hans then asked me to sit on the floor in front of Kai, who held out his hands. I was asked to put my hands about a foot below Kai’s open hands held with the inside down, which I did. After about a minute something (an apport) fell into my hands. At no time did I see anything in his hands or between his fingers. The apport, which turned out to be a sea shell with some gold flakes in it, just dropped from his hands.
The shell is three quarters of an inch long and it now sits on my desk.

Ectoplasmic extrusion under scientific control and protocol (stripsearch, controlled environment) during test séances 2013, when Kai performed for a group of scientists
Hans now asked for the red light to be turned off and we heard him move Kai back into the cabinet. He asked for the sitters to sing along with the music and asked Julia to turn the red light back on. He then asked Julia and me to pull the curtain open so that we could all see Kai seated in the cabinet. Kai then stood up (remember, it is Hans who is totally controlling Kai to do what he does) and ectoplasm started coming out of his mouth. Kai used his hands to pull the ectoplasm out of his mouth and it fell to the floor, where it formed a pile about one and a half feet in diameter and about 6-10 inches high just inside the cabinet.
Once the ectoplasm stopped coming from Kai’s mouth, he stepped out of the cabinet (still totally controlled by Hans) and picked up some of the ectoplasm (about 3 inches in diameter and a few feet long). He placed that ectoplasm on the curtain of the cabinet and it stuck to the curtain.

Kai picked up a bit more ectoplasm and pressed it against my forehead and then pressed it against my wife’s forehead (she sat next to me). The ectoplasm felt cool and wet but had no noticeable odor. After that Kai walked back into the cabinet and sat down. Ectoplasm was still piled on the floor next to him and some on it now started rising slowly (about 3 inches in diameter rising to a height of about 8-10 inches). It stopped rising and Hans asked Julia and me to close the curtain.

After about 1-2 minutes Hans asked Julia and me to open the curtains again. Kai was sitting on his chair and there was no sign of any ectoplasm (it had all returned to the medium-Kai).

Object that dropped in Vandersandes hand from mediums checked empty hand. The strange shell was filled with gold flakes to show that precious materials can be materialized/apported
The second sitting on Sunday was different from the first sitting on Saturday in several aspects. On Saturday it was very warm in the séance room and at the end of the séance (around 3 hours) it had become very uncomfortable, if not unbearable. Luckily on Sunday one of the sitters brought a portable air-conditioner so the temperature during the séance was comfortable. Early during the second séance, when it was dark and sitters mentioned being touched, Hans all of a sudden got very upset and said that one of the sitters on the right side of the cabinet tried to make contact (with his/her legs or feet since sitters were holding hands) with the ectoplasm (this is of course very dangerous to the medium and could cause him harm). He asked the sitter to leave the séance room, however no one admitted to trying to touch the ectoplasm. Hans pleaded for a while and almost stopped the sitting. Eventually, he moved some of the sitters on the right side further from the cabinet.

After about 45 minutes the sitting resumed. As a result of the lost time Hans asked the sitters if they wanted more physical phenomena (such as the trumpet flying) or more time with the red light on. All said the red light.

The red light part of the Sunday séance started similar to the Saturday séance. With the curtains pulled open and Kai standing in the cabinet, ectoplasm started streaming from his nostrils. The ectoplasm fell to the floor and formed a pile. Kai then walked out of the cabinet holding some of the ectoplasm (it had stopped flowing from his nose) and walked to Margaret (at whose home the séances were held and who was sitting next to Julia on the right side of the cabinet). Kai touched ectoplasm to Margaret’s forehead and then let her touch the ectoplasm. He asked her to remove an apport which was embedded in the ectoplasm. It took her a few minutes to remove a crucifix about an inch long. She described the ectoplasm as cool, wet and stringy.
Kai walked back into the cabinet. The ectoplasm was still on the floor to his left. It started rising and formed a hand with the fingers clearly visible. The fingers moved slowly. The index finger had a ring on it but it could not be easily seen by those sitters far from it. I sat right next to the hand so could clearly see it. Hans said it was his hand. He said that there was not enough energy to form faces in the ectoplasm (as has happened in other séances with Kai). He then asked Julia and me to close the curtain.

Once the curtain was closed there were around 10 light flashes (like exploding fireworks) in and around the cabinet. Some flashes were small (approximately 6-12 inches in diameter) while small were larger (approximately 2-3 feet in diameter).

There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the physical phenomena we observed in the two séances could not have been produced by Kai or Julia walking around in the dark or by any other means.

Similarly, there is no way Kai’s mind could have produced the phenomena (I discuss this possibility in my book). The only explanation is that spirit entities (Hans and others in the spirit world) produced these phenomena using Kai’s mediumship.

Seeing ectoplasm in red light is a rare experience now a days. The séances were a truly unique experience.

High Strangeness Phenomena at the Basle PSI Association - TWO MEDIUMS, TWO ECTOPLASMIC STRANDS OF EXTRUSION AND THEIR MERGING FOR JOINT GEMSTONE PRODUCTION

Author
Olivier Gross
Chairman «Experimental Group Thun»  
Olivier Gross is a Suisse medium with many years experience. Besides having a highly responsible profession he founded Paramatma Thun together with his wife Daniela who plays a significant role in the mediumistic activities around them. Like the renowned couple 'the Bennets', that were once causing the famous Scole-phenomena in the nineties, Olivier and Daniela seem to form a comparable spiritual relationship. Several years ago, they founded the 'Experimental Group Thun' to work partially with the same spirit entities, like the Felix Circle Germany. Meanwhile Paramatma is in the meantime deinstalled, both are still involved in the organisation and exercise of sacred spiritual events unique in the german speaking countries. Physical Mediumship is a main inspiration for their lives. Editor 

 Preface

I describe in this short report the personal experiences I had when being a part of the Séanceroom Experiment 'Interlinking individual strands of ectoplasm for gemstone materialization' during a Séance with the Felix Circle-medium Kai M., the 14th of August 2014 in the rooms of the Basle PSI Association. 
I specifically focus onto the aspects concerning the experiment and my personal experience. I want to underline I also hugely admire previously described amazing and fascinating additional phenomena, that are going on, even though I won t mention them here. 

Introduction

Thursday, the 14th of August 2014, my wife and me drive down to Basle to attend the séance with Kai M. at the PSI Association.
Our contact to Kai and Julia M. and the Felix Circle stands in close connection to the intensive work within the 'Experimental Group Thun', that was founded a few years ago. Seemingly the same group of spirit helpers like 'the chemists' - around the trance-personality  'Hans Bender' - does not work only with the Felix Group, but at least as well with our group, what enables the interlacing of potentials, even though main communicators are different (Indridi Indridason, Rudi Schneider) in Thun!
This factor has decisively and directly abeted the development of our group! 
With this background we regularly drive to Kais and Julias Séances, where we every single time are surprised newly, how individual and mannifold the spiritual potentials manifest on the physical plane and at the same time affect us emotionally to a considerable degree.

 Picture: The threepart set of gemstones, that was the physical result of the strange ectoplasmic experiment.

Initialisation
 
Already after a short initial phase, meanwhile the medium 'Kai Felix' (his first name is ‚Kai‘, the spirit personalities adress him solely with ‚Kai-Felix‘ though) entrances itself via a specific shamanistic breathing technique, the spirit personality 'Hans Bender' eventually comes through and welcomes the sitters warmly and in a known affectionate form.
He thanks the organizers and Kais wife Julia, who 'are enabling these communions with their committment and love'.
He carries on: 'We specifically acknowledge those in the room we work with at other locations, Daniela and Olivier, welcome, we are happy you're here. I might need to talk shortly to Olivier, we would like to invite you for an experiment at the end of the session. Therefore we would quickly like to check your health status. But as far as we know, the path is clear and it is solely your decision if you like to give yourself one more time in our hands. We are positive you like to do that“.
I thank 'Hans', his words immediately have somehow captured my mind and body completely and my thoughts start to circle around the forthcoming yet undescribed experiment and my pulse increases inevitably, meanwhile the energy in the room raises and phenomena of different nature manifest throughout the room.
Once more a pleasant and exciting start in one of these seances, that always enable the sitters to make new insights and my anticipation towards what might come enfolds all planes of my presence.

Preparation

During the phase meanwhile two or three autonomous light-spheres move with high speed through the room and frequently appear and move in front of, below or above us sitters I feel the attempt of being 'scanned'. Two lights appear directly in front of my head and move with enormous speed in a meandering routine up and down. 
Then suddenly on the left hand side coming from my middle ear my auditory canal warms up considerably reaching the outer ear and additionally my temporomandibular joints  (jaw-joints) do on both sides heat up as well. I recognize this somehow as an energy build, as I know it from my own trance-work and at the same time i feel more relaxed than at the start of the sitting.
During the scanning-procedure i very clearly recognize the announced clarification and i become nervous a bit in regards to its outcome.

Shortly later Hans talks again: "Today we mainly work towards an experiment in the red light phase of the evening. Subject of this experiment is our mediumistic vessel Olivier, friend, contender for the communication inbetween the dimensions. Olivier we are not knowing about any illnesses in the inner ear- or jar-region of yours. 
Should we be wrong you should not take part in this experiment as planned.
The experiment is about
- the extraction of ectoplasmic material from two different mediumistic vessels and 
- its intermixture and 
- the utilization of the joint creative potentials."

"Your left ear and your jar-joint will be manipulated. These manipulations are undangerous and we invite you to reflect about being part in this experiment.“
I answer: „I would like to very much, dear Hans!“.
He commences: “Later we will want you to sit then besides Kai Felix in the cabinet and you'll be entranced. The ectoplasmic process will be triggered and you will have to linger in the trance for several minutes. Like yours Kai Felix' organism will be then facilitated as well to exhibit to the sitters 'the two mediums united in ectoplasmic extrusion.“

But now first several more mediumistic experiments follow previously to the red-light phase and i recognize the same preparation on the bodily- as well as on the consciouness-plane like during my trances with the «Experimental Group Thun».
This well accustomed process abets directly the activation of my mediumistic organism and I sense the 'otherworldly' around 'Hans Bender' very specifically interlinked.

Hans: „Sitters, we directly enter the red light phase! The entities prepare the ectoplasmic  substrate for extrusion. Please let a lot of fresh air into the room and support the ongoings by singing please“.

I sense the moment of the experiment coming nearer and feel more and more relaxed at the same time. After a short phase of singing, Hans explains: „Let me describe shortly the course of this amazing two mediums involving experiment. First of all we will want to have Olivier with his chair besides Kai. Then behind closed curtains we will prepare the extrusions from Oliviers orifices of the head.
This will be exhibited to the sitters as soon as the process starts. Closing of the curtains. At that time Oliviers head lays on his right shoulder towards the medium, meanwhile the substance flows towards the ground coming from his ear.

With a signal reopening of the curtains: Extrusion of ectoplasmic matter through Kai Felix and melting of both mediums strands in another. Closing of the curtains. Reopening and exhibition of building handforms, animating the mass on the floor to generate objects. 

Finally the pile on the floor will be uplifted and Julia will be trying to secure objects that might appear or fall to the ground. Under circumstances the objects have to be freed from the mass. Closing of the curtains and desintegration of extruded material. Opening, the mass has desintegrated. That's the plan!"

"Is Olivier still present or has he fled this location?" (Sitters laugh)
I answer: "No, I am still here!"
Julia asks if she will be receiving verbal instructions during the processes: "No, I cannot talk, since ectoplasm is leaving Kai Felix mouth. Should the generated objects not appear we will seperate from the ectoplasmic stream and give instructions!"

"Dear Sitters and Friends, this is an experiment that was exercised many times over the world (Brazil, Argentinia, USA): Mediums connect their ectoplasmic strands to generate different results.
Julia, when we start to generate the ectoplasmic flow from Oliviers ear for the first time red light will fall onto it! It must be not too bright, even though we will clearly show the extrusion, the triggering of the flow of ectoplasm!"
"Olivier himself will in the first place feel as if he had water like after a bath in his ear. A slight pressure will build around it and his jaw joints and that was it more or less. Leaving his ear the ectoplasmic matter will sprout over his head and flow to the ground.
Olivier, are you still part of the experiment?" 
I answer: "Yes".
Hans says: "We start to prepare the ectoplasmic matter, music and singing please...!"

At the time of the preparation i can feel how 'energy' is becoming somehow more and more dense and at the same time my consciousness expands. Additionally my left ear canal feels enormously warm and my temporomandibular joint is not anymore controlled by me and I am fully relaxed.

Installation within the cabinet

Hans calls me: „With mild red light Olivier please come to the cabinet with your chair.“
I carefully leave with my chair the place within the circle where I was seated (opposite to the cabinet) and walk over to the medium. I inform the entity Hans I have arrived. 
He instructs Julia to open the cabinet curtains. 
He tells me: "Seat yourself on Kai Felix' left hand side with the chairs rest towards him, please. Legs can reach into the room. As close as possible to Kai Felix! Closing of the curtains please!" 
The moment the curtains are closed I feel complex processes form and me becoming part of the whole. Something familiar I sense and I feel very comfortable, but already in a slightly altered state of consciousness. 
Hans communicates now non-verbally with me and instructs me to open completely, to even empty me the way I did it countless times before during my work in Thun with him. 

Then he talks again: "We would like you to lay your head relaxed onto your right shoulder. We then try to release the procedure. That will take only a few seconds, sitters outside listen to my signal, because we want Olivier then to describe, what is happening. Music and singing please!"
Picture: After a split second lasting touch of Kai/Hans at Oliviers ear 'like from a bursting bud' the ectoplasmic mass flows coming from the ear over Oliviers face.

Ectoplasmic Exposition

As soon as the music plays I recognize the familiar energies within the cabinet. I quickly achieve to ballance the uncomfortable posture of my head with an according breathing pattern. 
At the same time I feel the hand of Kai/Hans. Three of his fingers touch very shortly my outer ear and it feels as if a light-impulse in my inner ear expands to a fluid, reveting my ear canal.
It is a very pleasant feeling and the process expands more and more. Like bursting from a capsule is my head within seconds covered by the ectoplasmic flow.
It is a very fine, but at the same time even weighy substance, combining very wet and even dry characteristics. It triggers always unexpected and even contradictory palpable sensations. Looking like dry raw cotton wool, it is a surprise to actually get in touch with cold clamminess and stickyness.
I know the substance and its peculiarities from experiences with the logurgia of Kai Felix. I sense the overwhelming energy within this process and am surprised by the precise work of the spirit entities.
Hans says: "First Opening and red light!" 
Not everybody can see well and so a stronger red light is demanded by him. At that time the ectoplasmic stream has already reached the floor...!
The curtains are closed again and I recognize that a second extrusion-process, this time through Kai, is generated and Hans' signal for reopening of the curtains is given. 
The ectoplasmic strands do unite now in front of the onlookers and end as an amorphus pile on the floor between Kai and me.
Picture: During the first opening the mass prolongs from Oliviers face down to the floor and a second opening (pic above) reveals the extrusion of bulging strands from Kai merging with Oliviers individual strand on its way down to the floor.
Picture: The conjointly generated mass on the floor seperated from Kai and is only with Oliviers orifice still connected. It seems to 'breath' and typically move as it is common with Kais ectoplasmic productions. 

Hans announces that more ectoplasm has to be produced to build 'hand-forms', spirithands, meanwhile I am fully enwrapped within this strange mass in an engrossed trance. 
I hear Hans demanding more activity on the side of the sitters for the creation of the complexer handform. Nevertheless I am like fainted at that moment in time.
Hans signals cabinet to open and where from Kais mouth before was a bulging strand of ectoplasmic matter coming the sitters now see a much more gracile structure in approximately a little more than arms length with an obvious hand at its' end, manipulating the mass on the ground and finally uplifting it.

After succeeding to do that, the first generated objects below become visible and Julia reaches out for them and overtakes the first gemstones.
"Is that all!?", I hear Julia ask. And Kais trance-personality answers: "No!"
In front of Julias and everybody elses eyes who do sit close enough to observe the differentiated movements of the hand it does lift and lower the relatively huge mass in a whole until a last object is thrown out. 
Julia overtakes the third and last gemstone from below the mass. 
Closing of the cabinet.
"Was everybody enabled to see the hand lift the mass!?" Sitters confirm.
"We are aware that all our new guests this evening might be irritated by this seemingly strangely looking procedure. But today we do present for our older friends amongst the sitters this specifically rare process for realization! Thank you for your interest. Now give us energy with music and singing, please!"
 
Picture: The newly produced strand is much more slim and ends into an obviously agile and active hand, that manipulates and lifts the pile of 'fine matter' on the floor.
Picture: Below it at first two gemstones become visible and 
- after a first securing - a third one.

Ectoplasmic Desintegration

Hans speaks: "Now we are going to free our friend from the uncommon matter! Describe what you experience, Olivier!" 
I answer: "A tugging at my ear I feel and a desintegration of the substance that feels clammy covering the whole head."
The desintegration is comparable with the dissolution of a substance, whose finer characteristics seem to dissolve gradually from the outer to the inner areas (in my case the ear canal). I feel that very good in my face. Several more main parts of a threadlike structur seem to retreat or rebuild and whole small areas like vanish within seconds.

I sense this pattern-based dissolve very clearly on my skin.
Hans demands an additional visual control to finalize the desintegration process of my ectoplasm to go sure there are no connections left on my skin.
He expresses his thanks of having me taking part in this unique experiment and I thank for the invaluable experience.

Final
 
After I have left the cabinet, extreme dischargings in form of lightning-like flashes become visible coming from it - even meanwhile Hans explains: "Rests of the non-dimensional material are removed!"

"Dear friends, tonite we have banned from the ectoplasm the analogue forms of our interwoven existences - and the experimental interspace - into the matter of gemstones.
There is the world of day, represented through the stone as clear as a morning sky. 
There is what you call the nightside of nature and is represented through the stone that is like a stary night sky.
And there is a room where both worlds are overlapping. It is the same experimental room of this evening, the milky stone as foggy as ectoplasm is representing it.

These three stones that embrace the spaces of our work go into the possession of the Experimental Circle Thun. It will be anchor-points for our future work with this circle; please put them where the other objects we are already interfering with are located!

Post Scriptum 

Sounding egregious in fact the merging of ectoplasmic strands coming from different mediums is an attempt known very well from the history of ectoplasmic mediumship and séance room display since the heydays of western physical mediumship and beyond. 
From Argentinia we have photographic evidence from the 30ies involving two mediums and in Spiritualisms heartland Brazil interlinking ectoplasmic strands were exercised at least into the late sixties. 
The more closest to our cultural environment are the massive demonstrations of the charismatic Physical Medium and Spiritual Leader Rev. K. M. R. in the United States who frequently drew ectoplasm from sitters solar plexus and combined it with its own! 
One of the best reports available is the combined Séance between South African Iconic Physical Medium Alec Harris and K.M.R., when the interlinking of extruded matter lead to the development of peculiar forms of full phantom materialization. The Editor

Upcoming: HIGH STRANGENESS AT BASLES PSI ASSOC.: Individual Interlinking Strands of Ectoplasm Provided by Two Mediums - by O. Gross, Chairman 'Experimental Circle Thun', Switzerland

Olivier Gross is a Suisse medium with many years experience. Besides a highly responsible profession he founded Paramatma Thun together with his wife Daniela who plays a significant role in the mediumistic activities around them. Like the renowned couple 'the Bennets', that were once causing the famous Scole-phenomena in the nineties, Olivier and Daniela seem to form a comparable spiritual relationship. Several years ago, they founded the 'Experimental Group Thun' to work partially with the same spirit entities, like the Felix Circle Germany. Meanwhile Paramatma is in the meantime deinstalled, both are still involved in the organisation and exercise of sacred spiritual events unique in the german speaking countries. Physical Mediumship is a main inspiration for their lives. Editor

In a unique experiment the spirit team around the 'Hans Bender'-Communicator utilizes two different mediumistic vessels to generate and interlink ectoplasmic strands in front of  Séance guests at the BASLE PSI ASSOCIATION, August 2014.
Read about the specific experiences of Mr. Gross whose ectoplasmic extrusion was triggered for the first time publicly sitting together with the 'Spirit Chemists' Medium Kai M. in the open cabinet.

Sounding egregious in fact this is an attempt known very well from the history of ectoplasmic mediumship and séance room display since the heydays of western physical mediumship and beyond.
From Argentinia we have photographic evidence from the 30ies involving two mediums and in Spiritualisms heartland Brazil interlinking ectoplasmic strands were exercised at least into the late sixties.
The more closest to our cultural environment are the massive demonstrations of K. M. R. in the United States who frequently drew ectoplasm from sitters solar plexus and combined it with its own!

One of the best reports available is the combined Séance between South African Iconic Physical Medium Alec Harris and the charismatic Physical Medium and Spiritual Leader Rev. K.M.R., when the interlinking of extruded matter lead to the development of peculiar forms of full phantom materialization.

Purpose for the interconnection in Basle was the joint production of a unique set of gemstones, created by the 'spirit alchemists' from the interlinked 'fine matter' to become future 'anchor'- or 'focus'-objects to strengthen the work with the 'Experimental Group Thun'!
Moreover the spirit team was wanting to demonstrate their impressing control over the mediumistic vessel!

COMING SOON - stay tuned. Editor.

MEMORABLE TABLE SITTING WITH MY SON THE 26th AUGUST 2014 - by Elke M., Dipl.Soc.Ped. and teacher, retired, mediums mother

I wrote my memories down directly after the sitting and present them in present tense to give the reader a most actual impression. Elke M.

We are sitting with four people at the table. A huge part of the group is hindered to come today because of work or holiday. Usually the group has 10 members. Kais wife Julia is not present either.
At the beginning Kai tells us about some of the most amazing 'happenings' the spirits had triggered during his recent seances and shares with us apported objects from his own mediumship and the mediumship of Mychael Shane he and Julia had met in the US and about whom an article is in the making.

Then the actual sitting starts after a prayer around 9.00 pm.
The lights we turn down in the hope to see the mysterious lights better that appear, when the spirits are around us.

Approximately after 10 minutes singing a huge round white light emerges between Kai and me, that is visible to everyone. After that whitish, greenish and reddish lights fly around the room, coming from every direction.

Four loud compact raps at the ceiling somewhere above us lead to a loud crashing noise.
We decide to pause quickly and see what has happened - maybe another apport is involved and has crashed to the ground.
But on the floor, outside of the sitters group around the table, another display is revealed: One of the chairs, we had sorted out for garbage because it was bent laid totally destroyed on the floor.
The chairs seat is demounted, a metal beam bent and broken.
I myself had sat on the chair previously this evening and put it besides the exit to litter it later.

The previously sorted out chair is ripped into pieces and found after one loud crashing noise from the floor. Minutes before Elke M. had sat on it and found its legs were slightly bent, letting the chair bounce. She put it besides the exit to throw it later into the garbage.
We carry on with the sitting and the table starts to levitate 23 seconds 2 feet in the air and remains floating, dancing or like swimming there - seemingly somehow in the musics rhythm.

Shortly later and after more whizzing lights and floating tables this time on the opposite side another loud bang is being heard. Not before we illuminate the lights for a second time, my daughter in law Steffi recognizes that the tables leg in front of her was secretly demounted and loudly crashlanding behind her.
We set the leg back into the surface, where the legs usually are quite stable fit into. Though it was not the first time the present spirits demonstrated their ability to unrecognized demount table legs.

Kai frequently tells us when he believes the spirits are giving a message to the group.
The most amazing happening of the evening followed after such an impuls of him.
He announces the spirits want to bundle physical powers of us sitters to produce an 'ancient spirit light' shining 'pure white healing' over and into the sitters bodies.
We all shall put our hands over one another approx.1,75 feet above the middle over the tables surface.

Kai has the impuls to count down from three to one and we count with him. After two resultless count-downs, every time ending in an audible expression by him of releasing power, it happened: Below our hands, on the tables surface a glistening bright sphere of white light appeared, approximately the size of a football.
The light actually blinds us more than we can say it illuminates the room, because we all are only seeing white, before the sphere expires.

Football-sized light sphere suddenly like exploded on the tables surface in front of everybodies eyes...
 Kai says the spirits had explained, that even though our retinas are imprinted for a long time, this light of course does not affect the human eye negatively. The spirits claim it has the same quality like the light tibetians describe as 'the clear ancient light', that can be seen in the moment of transition.
We are all pretty shaken by that massive display of energy directly in front of us.

During the entire sitting the table is very lively and produces drum-whirl-like jumps from side to side with an other-worldly speed, not at all recreatable by human means. Also our hands cannot follow the tables surface speeding up and down.

10.30 pm we say thank you and farewell to the spirits working with our group for the unbelievably rich evening.

E.M., founding member and sitting with the FEG for the last 10 years.

AUGUST IN THE CABINET - Shannon Taggart shoots up spirit activity again

Some of you might remember August Goforths report on last years US-Sittings 'Water under the Rocks' - a lyrical and inspired as inspirational account of what he experienced during Physical Seances held in Springfield and Dr. Neals House in Cassadega, near Lilydale!
What only a few do know is that August is not only a skilled writer - The Risen - he is a professional  working in difficult areas of psychotherapy and holds his own psychic abilities hidden behind a pseudo, what is as necessary as it is sad.
It is because until today it happens quickly to become mobbed by ones own professional environment learning about such activities! Reasons our own circle leader only knows about too well.
But anyway, be it as it may.

August, together with Shannon Taggart, held sittings in Montcabirol, when August sat in the cabinet and Shannon, who is an experienced and professional spirit photographer did shoot up!

"WITHOUT ANY DOUBT...!" - Flower apported with a flash and a visitor in ectoplasm

Our thanks, blessings and prayers go to Reverend Kevin Lee, who organized and prepared with unparalleled committment and inspiration physical mediumship events at the Metaphysical Chapel, Ft. Lauderdale simply perfectly.

 One of the highlights was the appearance of an apported Hybiscus - appearing with a bright flash illuminating the whole room - deeply embedded and grown within the ectoplasm!
 Receiver sitter was then to excavate with huge effort (like sitters before reported the difficulty of excavating grown in ectoplasm objects like f.e.Renate K. in B., June 2014) the fully bloomig flower from the 'fine matter'.

Flower had no signs of destruction, but was in the contrary fully blooming, full of water drops (raining outside) and had a little ant also apported within!


 The Flower was a gift from her grandmother in spirit as the spirit control announced!

 In another Seance the Grandfather of V. was showing his head within the ectoplasm. All sitters were allowed to stand up and come close to inspect whose face was mirroring within the 'fine matter'!

"Without any doubt", V. had identified his grandfather and claimed that the face displayed was exactly like the photo on his grandfathers grave he was searching for decades after he finaly had found it a short time ago.

What a wonderful synchronicity and confirmation.

But the most valued thing was the philosophy of the Metaphysical Chapel and its Reverend Kevin Lee!

He may be blessed by all the higher powers of the Universe!

2ND UPDATE: CLOSE EYEWITNESS REPORT: SPIRITS APPORT OBJECT FROM UNDER THE EYEBALL (stabilized version)

Having produced a huge quantity of apports under unusual conditions over the last weeks (new spirit helper for 'high strangeness-phenomena' manifested, spoke and produced), like eye apports during seances in B. and at the private P.-Circle (Switzerland) 2014.
It was asked for by sitters to become enabled to see more of the process itself somehow more closely.

So in the Metaphysical Chapel yesterday the allowance was given to film the process close up in white light.

Enabled was the process by the new Spirit Helper Rev. Keith Milton Rhinehart, whose work with Kai M. was - after he himself already had a mediumistic connection to him established - predicted by another medium several weeks ago.

See the stills below the video that reveal the position of the crystal even better than the short video clip!

 

STILLS showing partially the position of the apported object coming from under the eyeball better, than the clip...









UPDATE EYEWITNESS REPORT: I attended this seance and was within a meter of the face of the medium fondly known by Hans Bender as "Kai Felix".
The apportation of this impossibly large object in white light happened as clearly as the images above confer although prior to the appearance of the crystalline object, Kai had what appeared to be a small black hole that was formed under the eyeball - as the port for the object to be transferred into our material world or as the primary materialization of the object, or both, this I cannot say.

 After the experiment was announced to the sitters by Hans, what is not shown in the video was the several attempts for "Hans" and the videographer to locate the apport in Kai's left, then right, then finally the left eye. This action was under red light clearly showing the medium's face the entire time I was siting within a meter+ from the medium in the circle.

At no time was my line of vision blocked. When the apport was finally located in the left eye, the white light illuminated the apportation and the videographer (Circle Control Julia Muegge) and the Independent Control (PM4U's own Rev. Kevin Lee !) were called to approach the medium for as close a look as reasonably possible, within inches of the apportation (see video).
 I was looking directly over Kevin's shoulder to the medium's right so I had a direct line of vision to Kai/Hans left eye. As the video shows, and the image stills corroborate, the apportation came from below the eyeball and can be seen from its first appearance until it drops into reality into the palm of the medium's hand.
W.J.

UPDATE 2 - CLOSE EYEWITNESS REPORT:
Stunning example of Gemstone Apportation in Bright White Light (flashlight) during July seance with Kai and FEG last week.
I was personally speaking on video as I was the left handed Host Control for Kai. I am heard encouraging our "little precious gifted apport" out from under the eye through its portal and congratulating the Spirit Control.

I was approximately 1.5 feet away from his face looking into this eye and saw the dark or black portal (hole) forming in corner of eye. I assumed it was simply a "space" created from his fingers holding open eyes.

As I am a highly specialized Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner with over 20 years of critical care and operating room experience, I have seen plenty of eyes and eyeballs.
I stand confident and more knowledgeable than MOST persons when i state: "There was NO gemstone hidden under this eyeball behind the lid".
I know how the eye behaves when foreign bodies are in or around or under or behind eyeballs.

What I saw was a dark spot/portal that slowly grew towards a dark grey color and appeared to become like GEL (a description I have heard other apport mediums explain as the item entering our dimension through a portal and entering as GEL like.. then solidifying into its proper shape.)
This is exactly what I saw in front of my "Apport experienced" eyes.
The dark GEL form changed slowly towards clear and then as its entered white light the further out it pushed, it began to take shape and slowly i saw facets on the stone. I KNEW what I was seeing as the facets gave away it being a stone at this point.
Exciting to witness legitimate phenomena with an outstanding medium!
Rev.K.L.

 ENJOY, Kai
