UPCOMING: How mediumistic effects do transfer into family and close friends

Since the days of D.D. Home the phenomenon of transferability of mediumistic activity is described.
With Kai M. a significant number of phenomena have occurred within his family and even within the intimate environment of researchers.
Sudden de- and apports of objects, unexplainable movement of objects and dazzling light phenomena.

Only an excerpt of objects with high coincidential aspects that have mysteriously suddenly appeared out of nothing (apported/materialized) over the last few months in the appartement of mediums wife in the abscense of the medium.
 All has occurred in the abscense of the medium.
Stay tuned for the bewildering stories that started to occur around Kais family members, close and far, and were happening the more stronger, the more stronger they were psycho-emotionally affected by the mediumistic work of Kai.
Stay tuned.

UPDATE: DELAYED (SSE PRE-PUBLISHES FIRST PAPERS ABOUT YEARS LONG INVESTIGATION OF PHYSICAL SEANCE ROOM PHENOMENA)

Stephen E. Braude, head investigator 
UPDATE: April, 10th, 2014
 We are very sorry to announce, that due to recent decissions to add certain changes the JSE Publication is atm offline and will be delayed to the Summer Issue 2014. We will update you with news as soon as they are available. Editor.

 Finally after three years of frequent sittings and more than half a year of peer-reviewing the Society for Scientific Exploration has pre-published 2 of 3 papers about their investigation of the Physical Phenomena triggered within the Felix Circle Germany by their Physical Medium (Kai M.).
More than three years Prof. Stephen Braude, author of parapsychological standard works, like 'Immortal Remains', 'The Limits of Influence' and 'The Gold Leaf Lady and other Parapsychological Investigations', former head of Philosophy at the University of Maryland, together with international Colleagues, financed mainly by the Gilbert Roller Fund, New York, investigated into the claims of worldwide witnesses and the Felix Circle itself about their array of classical Seance Room based Physical Phenomena.

When the medium Kai M. uses his shamanistic breathing routine only a few minutes later the rooms in which the seance is held come to life. Knocks rap from walls and ceilings, tables float through the room, strange lights and illuminated mists travel alongside the sitters, 'spirit visitors' footsteps are being heard walking through the room, ectoplasm appears in huge quantities and takes in front of the sitters different forms, like hands, faces, animal or pet-like and much more.
After over years several magicians claimed to find no hint for trickery and more and more so called scientific monitors were invited to see the phenomena, Stephen Braude had enough in hand to get a long term study financed, mainly through the help and openness of Rosemary Pilkington of the Gilbert Roller Fund, New York.


The study is already by now an historical attempt. The attending scientists were enabled to see and film things for the first time in their claimed existence since the phenomena started with 'The Spiritualistic Age', 1854. In front of Braudes' and colleagues' eyes objects materialized, ectoplasm did sprout into human forms, tables levitated in front of film cameras and more.
The investigation and its most impressive moments were accompanied by the way by the documentary filmer Robert Narholz and the images and filmclips that were taken will be published in LENAFILMS feature film 'Finding PK' in fall/winter 2014.
Kai M., 45, the Felix Experimental Groups Physical Medium
 Alleged being extincted since the 50ies Physical Mediumship revived 1996 with the 'Scole Report' of the SPR., London, about another experimental group, then lead by Robin and Sandra Foy, and its two prolific physical mediums Alan and Diana Bennet. In fact Physical Mediumship never was extincted - it simply had vanished from the public eye and many home circles were quite active especially in the UK and developed Physical Mediums of different grades of abilities.

Kai M., who is 45 years of age today says: 'I am doing this since I am 15. Never anybody was interested, until everybody was suddenly talking about.'
10 years ago he had founded a new experimental- or development-group for his mediumship, one of many in his life, and maybe because in a much more open and sympathetic environment his mediumship grew from strength to strength.
'My motives were, becoming part of the study, I wanted to strengthen the reputation of the people, the mediums and sitters who are interested in these mysteries and who are too often laughed and scoffed at - I wanted to show it is real!'

Kai underwent a protocol of rigid controls that is usually rejected by todays working Physical Mediums (working in a 'seance room lab' with regular strip searches, permanent observation, no regular sitters, low light and infrared filming, permanent touch resp. holding control during the course of the seance by scientists and m.m.). Mainly because it is not believed to make sense to put so much effort into something, that is long since proven to many but will also always stay rejected by others, with or without scientific studies about it.
We will see what worth the study about Kai M. and the strange manifestations around him once in the parapsychological history books will have...
So the study is unique, the case is strong and the phenomena extremely interesting.
We want to encourage the readers to become SSE members resp. subscribers to have a most interesting read into the mysteries of Modern Seance Room experimentation.

SPIRIT- OR THOUGHTOGRAPHY? ANOTHER STUNNING PHOTO EXPERIMENT WITH ROBBERT VD BROEKE - and more videos showing the cases' history


THE DUTCH MEDIUM ROBBERT v/d BROEKE
 Robbert v/d Broekes mediumship has an unique feature!
There were only a few before him and contemporarily no other medium that is able to influence digital photography as Robbert is demonstrating here - as he did before - in this stunning video clip.

That the figures, faces and objects show up as 'extras' (psychic anomalies on photos) when he photographs there can be no doubt anymore - too many visited him, from TV Crews over private persons, all lending only for a few seconds Robbert their camera and the 'extras' appeared!

Many come with a loss in their younger or older history to the medium, so it is typical that clients are getting dead relatives showing up on the digital photos made by Robbert.
Oftentimes displayed in a peculiar manner, but frequently blade sharp and with no questions left identifiable.

Others with another background coming - like for example TV Crews wanting Robbert to interview about his interest and crop circle involvement, are 'getting' strange Alien like entities show up or even ufos.

Where is all this coming from? Is Robbert photographing something those around him cannot see or does Robbert enable the camera to somehow catch what those around may think? Or hope, or remember?

In this case this would not be exactly what we call spirit photography, but more what we call 'thoughtography' and in western history there was especially one guy who was able to influence polaroid cameras in the late 60ies and early seventees in a way Robbert is doing it today.

'Ted Serious' was the name of this unique personality of psychical research, as unique as Robbert is today with what he is doing.

The following clips show the variety of the photographic contents very well and also the difficulty in interpreting them as 'spirit'-photography, at least in cases like in video 3 and some in video 2 or as thoughtography.

The first one is the youngest production showing once more that the paranormal process is actually for real.

VIDEO 1:

An interesting phenomenon is showing up comparing the perspectives from which the photos were taken by Robbert and the results, that seem - without any altering of the original beforehand - to show eventually enlarged portions of the original image section, the original chosen frame - with photographical extras.
Sometimes is not only a section unexplainably enlarged showing an extra, sometimes the whole perspective has traversed, showing a view-frame from a position where the photographer in no way was located, like in Picture 2 here on VIDEO 1. This strange effect was very well known when Ted Serious was influencing Polariod photos.

VIDEO 2:

VIDEO 2 shows an early experiment with a professional photographer showing the involved for the first times to validate and alone document what is going on. the interesting with this clip is mainly the 'Paranormal Family Snapshot'-Album of the Broekes and their bizarre stories about their lifes with their son over the years.

VIDEO 3:
VIDEO 3 shows a classical spirit photography-process, the deceased friend of American Filmmaker William Glazecki appears in an awe-inspiring manner on the photos, that speaks for itself.

Here is Robberts website and the most important website of the BLT Research Institute that investigated Robbert over many years and has produced wide documentation here.

ENJOY!

WHY WHAT MEDIUMS LIKE KAI M. DO ISN'T ENOUGH... - by Edward Marek

Weeks ago I attended a séance conducted by Kai Muegge in Australia. I found it to be a worthwhile and valuable experience. I've just posted an account of this experience on a computer forum I belong to as part of an earlier response I’d posted to the topic ‘Scientists offer quantum theory of soul's existence’ which came up some time ago.
My account of the Kai Muegge séance can be (originally) found as a postscript at the bottom of my main post in which I attempted to argue that humans have a soul and that life after death is a reality.

If you read the replies I got in response to my initial post you’ll understand why I chose the title/(headline) of this discussion/(report). (link to the original forum thread)


Full report of Edward originally coming from a lengthy forum discussion (see 'link' above):
I (...) (was) going to my second séance conducted by Kai Muegge the only medium in the world I know of that demonstrates ectoplasm in red light at his séances and it had such an impact on me that I felt compelled to add an account of this experience to my post. I prefer to add the account as a postscript to my first post in this topic rather than resurrect the topic with a new post at the end and then watch more close minded sceptics that reject anything that conflicts with their rigid belief system and narrow worldview, respond by posting more insults and ridicule.

The séance took place on October 29th 2013 at the same place at Wallacia on the outskirts of Sydney as the previous séance I attended. I found it to be a worthwhile and valuable experience with the highlight for me being seeing ectoplasm in red light. The experience also supported the validity of the Scole Experiment because I witnessed a number of the same phenomena that were reported to have occurred in the Scole Experiment.

Both séances that I have attended have been valuable each in a different way.

While my first séance involved some impressive physical phenomena (a table and a megaphone levitated and did some spectacular acrobatics) the majority of the séance consisted of people from the afterlife dimension speaking through the medium (Tom Morris) with the main spirit entity that came through, John Sloane, impressing me with his caring, wise and intelligent personality and the way that he answered questions. John Sloane did something subtle but significant (to me) at the end of the séance that provided a strong clue that the séance was genuine.

My second séance conducted by the medium Kai Muegge, with Hans Bender the main spirit guide from the other dimension speaking through the medium acting as master of ceremonies, took a different approach with an emphasis on physical paranormal phenomena as evidence of the existence of other dimensions awaiting us after we die. This was done in an impressive and at times awe inspiring manner.

When I saw the medium Kai Muegge approaching the room I sat in while waiting for the séance to begin my first impression was one of surprise at how casual and relaxed he looked. I couldn't help thinking that if he was a con-artist he was the most relaxed con-artist I'd ever seen because he appeared unconcerned about what he was about to do and to have complete confidence that the spirit helpers were going to show up and play their part and that's exactly what happened! Presumably he allows himself to be used by entities in the afterlife dimension while in trance and he probably has limited awareness of what is going on hence there is no need for him to worry about what was going to happen. He has also probably conducted so many séances in the past that there was no doubt in his mind as to the reliability of the spirit entities showing up. Cynics and sceptics might say that he was relaxed and confident because he had successfully fooled people so many times in the past but what I witnessed that night left me with no doubt that he is genuine.

Before the séance began he gave an introductory lecture. It was a long rambling talk about the type of mediumship he does and how it differs from the types of mediumship traditional in the US and UK as well as some guidelines to prepare us for what we were about to experience.

I was one of 2 people chosen to search the séance room including the cabinet at the front that the medium sat in while producing ectoplasm. Neither of us found any evidence of anything suspicious. I checked the chairs and the props that were going to be used (a plastic bucket, a few balls covered in cloth, a handkerchief, a ceramic tile and a megaphone) and every inch of the inside of the cabinet room. The cabinet was basically just a rectangular frame with plywood walls and ceiling with a black curtain at the front that you could pull over to cover the medium as he sat inside.

Before entering the séance room every person was searched including being checked with a metal detector for things like a torch or a camera with a flash that might be used to take a photo of the medium while ectoplasm was coming out of him which if it happened could be injurious (even life threatening) to the medium because of the way that ectoplasm reacts to white light. Kai Muegge explained during his introductory lecture that someone once did something silly during one of his séances that caused the ectoplasm to shoot back into his body causing him pain and to bleed from the mouth and nose. In the past a few mediums have been seriously hurt and one or two may have died as a result of injuries sustained from people doing the wrong thing.

There were 17 of us in total consisting of 14 sitters plus Kai Muegge, his wife and Inge Crosson the woman that provided the facility free of charge for the séance. We sat in a semicircle around the cabinet located at the front of the room and after a few minutes Kai Muegge entered the séance room doing a strange kind of rapid heavy breathing called ‘hollotropic breathing’ which he had already been doing for about 20 minutes in private while we were searched and assigned our seats. He made occasional loud grunting noises while breathing rapidly in this peculiar manner. The hollotropic breathing was presumably designed to put him into a receptive state for Hans Bender to take over his body (and I'm guessing for his ego to become quiet and move aside).

Each of us was required to hold hands almost continuously for the entire approximately 2 ½ hours that the séance went. This was to ensure that no-one could be accused of being an accomplice to what occurred by getting out of their chair or doing anything underhanded in the dark. It was also designed to act as an alarm system in case anyone tried to do anything silly like rush the medium and grab him or take a photo of him with a camera that wasn't detected during the search, while ectoplasm was coming out of him. If anyone stopped holding hands we were instructed to call out immediately and the séance would have halted and possibly ended completely depending on the reason it happened.

So that there could be no accusation of fraud on the medium's part involving getting up in the dark without anyone knowing both the medium's hands were held by the persons sitting on each side of him as well as a hand placed on each of the medium’s legs. If the medium attempted to get up the sitters monitoring him were instructed to yell out. Kai Muegge told us that even if he wanted to be deceptive and commit fraud his wife would not have allowed it.

The séance started in darkness in dramatic fashion with several extremely loud bangs on the walls of the cabinet or the front wall of the séance room (the banging definitely came from inside not the outside the room). A number of women in the audience shrieked when this happened but I remained calm and rational because I wanted to interpret what I experienced objectively and look for any signs of trickery. The banging sounded like a person slamming his closed fist against the cabinet wall and my automatic reaction was to wonder if it might be Kai Muegge doing it but then I remembered that he was being monitored by the sitter on each side of him holding both of his hands and legs with the instruction to yell out if he got up so it couldn't have been him or any member of the audience as we were all holding hands! The banging turned out to be Hans Bender the spirit guide from the afterlife dimension announcing his arrival in dramatic fashion! When he lived on earth (1907-1991) Hans Bender was a lecturer in parapsychology at an institute in Freiburg Germany that he set up.

Hans Bender then spoke through the medium. His voice sounded very similar to Kai Muegge's voice which was understandable as he was using Kai Muegge's body and vocal chords and his nationality was the same as Kai Muegge's so english was spoken with a German accent. His personality was also quite similar to Kai Muegge's but in my opinion not identical. Hans Bender explained that the séance was going to be conducted in several phases building up to showing ectoplasm in red light. This turned out to be the case with a series of impressive phenomena occurring ending in ectoplasm in red light which I'll describe in detail later. Ectoplasm is a kind of life force substance that we all supposedly contain that can be drawn out of us by people in the afterlife dimension which they can use to produce phenomena in light (principally red light). There are many photos of ectoplasm on the internet and pretty much all of them in my opinion are crude fakes consisting of cotton wool, cheesecloth, toilet paper etc with some involving using photos of people cut from newspapers stuck to cotton wool to create the illusion of human faces appearing in ectoplasm.

I'll now list the phenomena I witnessed in summary form in the order they occurred before describing the one I saw that impressed me the most and provided striking evidence of another dimension with intelligent beings living in it that are able to communicate with us under favourable circumstances and that our our spirit goes to after we are finished with our earth incarnations.

Summary Outline of the Phenomena I Witnessed in Chronological Order:

• Numerous members of the audience were touched on the head in quick succession and then people were touched on the feet (we had all removed our shoes and left them outside the séance room). As each person was touched he/she called out. The sceptics would say that darkness allowed the medium or an accomplice to sneak around in the dark and touch the sitters but since all of us including the medium held hands this couldn't be the case. This same phenomenon occurred during many of the Scole Experiment sessions.

• A series of sharp pinpoints of lights flashed in quick succession in a wide clockwise pattern across the front of the room. When I saw them my first thought was to wonder if that they been created by some sort of laser device but as we were all holding hands and the medium’s hands were also being held along with his legs this couldn't have been the source of the lights. The lights also flashed in mid air not on the wall of the cabinet or the séance room which would be the case if a laser device was used. Hans Bender announced that there had been a problem with the effect that his spirit team was trying to achieve so they had decided to abandon it and move on to the next phenomena. It then occurred to me that I was probably the only person in the room that had seen the lights because if others had they would have called out. The lights were not strong but still clearly noticeable to me because I happened to be looking in the right place when they occurred. I remembered that a similar sort of thing happened during the Scole Experiment with the spirit entities sometimes only achieving a weak effect but then producing a stronger one in subsequent sessions after experimenting and refining the method used.

• A handkerchief with numerous spots around the perimeter of it that glowed in the dark was handed to one of the sitters by Kai Muegge’s wife with the instruction to only let go of the handkerchief if it was tugged strongly. While the sitter held an edge of the handkerchief with her arm extended I saw the other end of the handkerchief rise and pulled away so strongly that the woman let go and the handkerchief was propelled to the other side of the circle where it fell to the floor. This was done a couple of times with different sitters holding the handkerchief. Big deal you might say but remember that every person held hands while this happened and the medium was also being monitored by the sitter on each side to make sure that he remained sitting in his chair so no (human) person in the room could be doing it.

• A luminescent ceramic tile was placed in the middle of the circle and a hand was seen by some sitters forming above it in the light given off by the tile. I only saw what looked like a vague luminescent mist above the tile. I guessed that this was because the outline of the hand was quite dim and I was much further away from the tile than those that saw it.

• Three small soft cloth covered luminescent balls that glowed in the dark were placed on top of an inverted plastic bucket in the middle of the circle and the balls were seen to suddenly scatter in several directions and move along the floor propelled by an invisible force. This was repeated a couple of times.

• A light appeared and whizzed around the room rapidly pausing intermittently in front of various people and then raced off again. I found this to be quite impressive. While the light was darting around the room the sitters holding the medium were asked by Hans Bender to confirm if the medium was still in his chair and they confirmed that he was still in his chair proving that the source of the light could not be coming from any person in the room as all of us were holding hands. This light did some impressive acrobatics travelling around the room at times close to the sitters and pausing briefly before some sitters before whizzing off again.

• A megaphone with several luminescent spots on both ends to make it visible in the dark was placed on top of an inverted plastic bucket in the middle of the room and we all watched it levitate up near the ceiling and whiz around the room at speed stopping briefly in front of some sitters before taking off again. I was particularly impressed by this because the megaphone dropped to the floor a couple of times on stopping and I heard it clatter as it hit the floor which confirmed to me that it was the megaphone that had been flying around the room. After each time it fell to the floor it levitated back up above our heads and resumed zooming around the room. While the megaphone whizzed around the room (with some women in the room shrieking loudly as it did so) Hans Bender asked the sitters monitoring Kai Muegge if he was still in his chair and they confirmed that he was and since the rest of us were holding hands whoever or whatever was responsible for the megaphone levitating and whizzing around the room it couldn't have been caused by any human in the room.

• With a light illuminating Kai Muegge and the area around him Hans Bender asked one of the sitters to sit cross legged on the floor in front of the medium. Kai Muegge then lifted his left arm shoulder height stretching it out in front of him with his forearm bent at a right angle so it was parallel to his chest and his palm and fingers were outstretched. Hans Bender then asked the volunteer to thoroughly examine his arm and hand for any foreign object (the medium wore a short sleeved shirt so there was no possibility of anything concealed in his shirt being used) and the woman volunteer announced that the medium’s hand contained no foreign objects. The medium then groaned loudly with such an intensity it reminded me of a woman in labour giving birth and after about 15 seconds of this intense groaning (which I'm guessing may have been for dramatic effect rather than necessary!) an apport (an object transported paranormally from one place to another) appeared below the medium’s outstretched palm and dropped to the floor!

It's important to note that the woman sitting cross legged on the floor was sitting with her head no more than about 30 cm from the medium’s outstretched palm looking up at his palm so she had an excellent view and there was a light illuminating the medium and his arm so we could see what was happening. The woman sitting cross legged on the floor and the sitters in close proximity confirmed that they saw the crystal stone appear just below the medium’s outstretched hand (I was too far away to see this) and the woman showed it to everyone after the séance was over. I examined it and it was a hard, smooth clear piece of stone with coloured minerals in the centre of it.

Hans Bender then announced that ectoplasm would be produced from the medium. This was what I had been waiting for and one of the main reasons I went to the séance. For this to occur the medium was required to be in the cabinet and he moved his chair back into the cabinet behind him while sitting in it and still in trance. The curtain in front of the cabinet was then pulled across by his wife and we were all asked to sing (to music played by Kai Muegge’s wife) for several minutes as Hans Bender and his spirit team of ‘chemists’ did something from their dimension designed to cause ectoplasm to come from the medium’s mouth.

After several minutes of singing we were asked to stop and Kai Muegge’s wife then turned on a red light that illuminated the cabinet and pulled the curtain back. I then witnessed something remarkable that I'll never forget. I observed a luminescent whitish almost clear (I could see inside it but not behind it) gas like structure in the middle of the cabinet (I didn't see Kai Muegge because the structure obscured him). It looked maybe 80 cm wide, a little less than that high and maybe 50 cm deep. The structure had stringy strands of a darker material scattered through it which helped to define it as having depth and it was expanding and contracting and it also moved slightly in a clockwise and then anti-clockwise direction. From the way it moved I had the distinct impression that it was being controlled by the spirit entities from the other dimension who were manipulating it so that we could see it from different angles. I was fortunate to have a very clear view of it because I looked at it directly front-on with an unimpeded view.

Then as I watched the ectoplasm pulsating and slowly changing shape in the right half of it I saw a hand in it! The hand must have formed in the ectoplasm after the curtain was opened because it wasn't there when I initially saw the mass of ectoplasm. The hand was small but clearly defined and it ended a little above the wrist and while the rest of the ectoplasm (apart from the stringy strands in it) looked almost like luminescent transparent water the hand was a dense greyish colour so it stood out very clearly against the surrounding much lighter material. The fingers of the hand moved slightly and the entire hand rotated slightly as if controlled by the spirit entities to show it off from different angles. I then watched the hand move out towards us and then withdrew back into the ectoplasm and disappear. It was surreal to say the least yet my clear view left me in no doubt as to the reality of what I saw despite it defying the known laws of science!

Of all of the phenomena I witnessed that night this one stands out the most in my memory because of how clearly I saw it from my front-on view of the ectoplasm and the hand that formed in it and because the curtain remained open long enough for me to be certain of what I saw. Note that Kai Muegge's wife only kept the curtain open for no more than 6 or 7 seconds each time that ectoplasm was displayed presumably because of the danger to her husband with the ectoplasm being exposed to light. This was long enough for me to be certain that this was genuine ectoplasm and that it could not have been produced by trickery. I don't care how clever and cunning you are there is no way known for a human being to produce what I saw by trickery under those conditions and with the controls in place because the ectoplasm was a living pulsating structure changing shape and size as I watched it. It confirmed to me that ectoplasm does exist and that it can be produced by some mediums.


To demonstrate the control that Hans Bender's spirit team had over ectoplasm Hans Bender then asked Kai Muegge’s wife to close the curtain and he announced that he would again show us ectoplasm but that it would have a different shape and appearance to the ectoplasm we had just seen. We were asked to sing again and before the curtain was opened Bender described what the ectoplasm should look like and then the curtain was pulled back and we were treated to the sight of more ectoplasm. This time it was a tall narrow column of a dense white cloud like material but with dark areas in it. Unlike the previous ectoplasm it was too dense to see inside it.

After Kai Muegge’s wife closed the curtain Hans Bender then said that his spirit team would create a likeness of a deceased relative of someone in the audience in the ectoplasm! Hans Bender said that the person whose likeness would appear died at the age of 93. After several more minutes of singing we were asked to stop and Kai Muegge’s wife turned on the red light to illuminate the cabinet and pulled the curtain away and there was a narrow column of ectoplasm on the left side of the cabinet. I saw a dense lattice of white interconnected strands in it and there was a shape of a human head in it but the head was upside down! No member of the audience recognised the face as that of a dead relative before the curtain was pulled back across the cabinet by Kai Muegge's wife.


Hans Bender then told us that he didn’t know why the head was upside down and that he would try to get his spirit team to turn it the right way round to make it easier for someone in the audience to recognise it. After more singing when the red light was switched on and the curtain was pulled back the ectoplasm was again visible with the head in it but it was still upside down. This time however after the curtain was closed a woman in the audience called out that she recognised the face as her dead grandfather and that he used to show off his acrobatic skills by standing on his head in front of the family after dinner each night! The woman said that her grandfather was so good at standing on his head that he was able do it without using his hands to steady himself.

The reason the head in the ectoplasm was inverted was now apparent. It was the spirit team's way of making it easier for the woman to recognise her grandfather in the ectoplasm. While I saw part of the ectoplasm I didn't see the head because of the position of the ectoplasm to my left and only being visible for perhaps 5 seconds before the curtain was pulled back but the woman who recognised her grandfather got a good view of it because it was directly in front of her. This suggests that the spirit team knew where each of us was sitting and positioned the ectoplasm to give the woman the best chance to recognise her grandfather. While this didn't conclusively prove survival after death because the head was only a likeness of the woman's grandfather it was convincing evidence of contact with another dimension.


What I saw by the way also confirmed in my mind that the majority of the photos of ectoplasm taken in the first half of the last century that I’ve seen on the internet are fakes. To capture the real thing in the past using a camera would have been next to impossible because white light causes ectoplasm to instantly shoot back into the medium doing harm to the medium’s body and possibly even killing the medium. There are special cameras today capable of capturing ectoplasm but these would not have been readily available in the past. Cameras have recently been used to capture ectoplasm at a Kai Muegge séance ( see http://felixcircle.blogspot.com.au/ ) and they show ectoplasm similar in appearance to the second and third instances of ectoplasm I witnessed at the séance I attended (however the first instance of ectoplasm I saw with the hand in it was different).

The ectoplasm in red light was the last of the phenomena I witnessed at the séance. From what I witnessed I concluded that while our intense form of light is incompatible with the laws governing the dimension that the spirit entities live in darkness allows the spirit entities to make their presence known in ways like touching, levitating objects etc and ectoplasm allows a visible dramatic and unequivocal way of making their presence known by using a coating of ectoplasm for protection so that faces, hands etc can be formed that are visible to the eye in (red) light. It makes sense that both dimensions must operate under different laws to ensure that they remain separate under normal conditions otherwise chaos would ensue.

Following the demonstrating of ectoplasm we then listened to Hans Bender conclude the séance with a brief talk during which he warned us that the excesses of capitalism were destroying the planet. While he was right I didn't see much point to him telling us this without at least offering some positive alternatives. He also urged each of us to become ‘warriors for the spirit’. Both statements sounded a little trite and naïve to me coming from a spirit speaking from another dimension that didn't have to worry about food, shelter and survival! Realistically speaking unless far more unequivocal proof of communication with beings in another dimension that awaits us after death is forthcoming in the future evidence provided by mediums channelling spirits and séances where phenomena like touching, lights, apports, levitation and even ectoplasm occur are always likely to be looked upon with scepticism by the majority of people and warnings like the one Bender gave ignored.

Hans Bender then said something that I considered to be significant. He said that we shouldn't think of the afterlife as being a continuation of life as we know it on earth. In human terms he said that there is no such thing as an afterlife. While he didn't explicitly say it at the séance Bender has indicated in the past that our ultimate destiny once we are done with our human incarnations is a form of consciousness not confined by boundaries such as a body. He describes the afterlife as a 'space in which consciousness core fields are projecting onto different physical levels of existence'. From this space we are able to explore the multidimensional universe projecting our consciousness into different dimensions and in the process move closer to the ultimate source consciousness-God. A form of pure consciousness occupying 'an area' is also what the spirit communicators indicated they were in response to the Ibiza Questions posed by Dr Hans Schaer during the Scole Experiment (see Robin Foy's book 'Witnessing the Impossible' pages 200 to 203). It is also in a nutshell what Seth says is our destiny in the book 'Seth Speaks' and the other Seth books channelled through medium Jane Roberts. Here we see the same important core idea being communicated from different sources.

After briefly socialising following the séance I left for home at around midnight. I have no doubt that what I experienced that night was genuine and not some elaborate hoax for the purpose of duping people out of money. While some mediums are phonies I'm certain that neither Kai Muegge nor the two guys that conducted the other séance that I attended almost 3 years earlier at the same location fall into this category. Because of the strict controls in place during the séance the possibility of either the medium or an accomplice among the sitters being involved in some sort of elaborate and sophisticated deception was in my opinion zero. Even if the strict controls had not been in place and you had the opportunity to perpetrate fraud no-one no matter how clever they are could have produced the ectoplasm I saw with the hand and head in it by trickery.

What will those of you that I have labelled as 'swine' in response to your ridiculing of my posts make of all of this? You will reject any evidence that conflicts with your dogmatic rigidly held conviction that there is no such thing as a soul or an afterlife. You have to reject what I have put forward no matter how compelling the evidence in order to protect your comfortable rigid narrow worldviews however those of you who are more open minded I hope got something of value from my post. Because I personally experienced all of the things that I described that happened at the séance I'm certain that what I experienced was genuine. It also confirmed that the accounts I'd read about the Scole Experiment were genuine. My experience at this latest séance I attended makes me more certain that we are not just clever animals and that we have a spirit and a soul and that we are part of something amazing beyond our wildest imagination that even the many closed minded unintelligent 'swine' among you will eventually come to accept.

EXAMINATION OF A WITNESSED 'APPORT' - William Treurniets enhanced investigation

William C. Treurniet, December, 2013
(amended January, 2014)
Several seances were held during October and November, 2013, at the Wallacia Development Centre near Sydney, Australia. The medium was Kai Muegge of the Felix Experimental Group in Frankfurt, Germany. Kai's spirit control is the deceased Professor Hans Bender. I attended the seance held on November 13. Anomalous phenomena were produced while the medium was controlled by two sitters on either side of his chair. Because of the lack of light in the room, these sitters each held the medium's nearest hand and knee to ensure that he did not move away from his chair. There were loud raps on the walls and ceiling, and little balls of light flitted around the room in the dark. Hans also produced a faint sheet of illumination like a white aurora borealis that moved past sitters seated well away from the medium. I experienced being struck on the hands and knees by unknown objects, and felt a stroking of the hair on the back of my head. A trumpet prop, self-illuminated by fluorescent tape, flew around the room, occasionally striking me and other sitters.

The medium Kai M. held a series of seances at Wallacia, Australia, in November, 2013. This object was one of a number that fell from the medium's extended empty hand in several of the seances. This particular one was seen to form with a brief twinkle just before it fell into a sitter's waiting hands. It was described by the medium's spirit control as having pockets containing ectoplasm. In the video we see that these pockets were arranged to form images of human faces - ectoplasmic art, we might say.

actually the apport fell during a lecture as Wenche refers to in her brief description. Guests of the lecture were seeing the object falling approx. between one and two meters (3,3 to 6,6 feet) behind the medium when he was talking in daylight

Study from filmed Ectoplasm 2013



 (all visuals copyright by Lenafilm 2013) The recordings shot in December 2013 in Switzerland by US-Documentary Filmer Robert Narholz of LENAFILM - at the Basle Psi Association (BPV) - show very beautifully the many characteristics and textures of 'genuine' ectoplasm produced by a known physical medium within a group session of 22 sitters.
The most amazing happened during these recordings also: Spirit visitors did show clearly and unmistakenly their faces within the substance and were identified by several sitters!

WISHFUL THINKING?! About to experiment with Physical Mediumship in the light, its widespread failure and 'the things that come from darkness'!

Regularly we hear complaints about the mediumistic tradition of working in darkened or semi darkened conditions.
Even though there are different demonstrations being done in red light (Kai Muegge, Stewart Alexander, Gordon Garforth, Warren Caylor, Bill Meadows), there is a group of Survivalists, that claim no valuable physical mediumship exists as long as it is not exercised in lighted conditions, 'like in the past'!
Moreover these parties do claim, Physical Mediumship without having full phantoms walking around makes no sense at all, because no 'Loved Ones' would materialise, what the one and only purpose of mediumship ever was, is and always will be!
I would like to present a pleading against these views in four sections:
1. The truth about the past and Full Form Materializations
2. The truth about experimental groups and Physical Mediumship working in light
3. The connection of the supernormal with darkness conditions and the truth about not having infrared allowed (modern theories)
4. A New Testament of Spiritualism

1. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE PAST AND FULL FORM MATERIALIZATIONS
Those who have thoroughly studied Physical Mediumship of the past do know: We have a small group of so called 'Daylight Mediums', whose number is so small, that they usually should be regarded as a minimal counterballance, a statistical spike against the much larger number of mediumship facilitators in the dark!

These Daylight Mediums were D.D.Home, Eusapia Paladino, Carlos Mirabelli and maybe some more, if we are lucky.
All the other mediums worked mainly in the dark, resp. in such low red light conditions, that Parapsychology coined them 'Darkness-Mediums' in addition to the daylight mediums, who caused such a stir among and earned so much recognition by early investigators who could not explain them and of course by their environment because it was baffled to the extreme!

Now there are several parties claiming, that the light conditions at for example a group of better known 'darkness'-mediums' - like Alec Harris', Einer Nielsens', Helen Duncans', Gordon Higginsons' and some other personalities' - séances were up to a considerable grade basically or more illuminated, to belong to a generally higher class of mediumship, than the 'darkness-séances' of today!
Because everything was 'so visible' in the past - meanwhile today everything is 'covered in darkness' (what is of course false, but to claim that is for some at least sufficient to talk down qualities and reputations of people, they have never sat with, but those on several websites do know it better anyway...)!

The critique in regards to modern Physical Mediumship is thus not only directed to the grade of illumination but also to the character of phenomena, that are produced today! Certain Survivalists claim, that any mediumistic activity in Physical Mediumship is only worthwhile to attend when one might see loved ones planely in a bright light, red or white, and as long as such conditions aren't 'reinstalled', no seance is it worth to visit!

Now let's check and see what might be revealed differently, because we believe - by checking the historical materials and by observing the psychological and perceptional conditions of sitters at contemporary seances - we can pretty planely show, that
- the lightened conditions at Séances of mediums who facilitated the Full Materialisation (of Loved Ones) was by far not as lightened than it is claimed today
- the 'quality' reunions that shall have taken place were mostly and mainly the product of the seeking of bereaved people who gratefully accepted the proposed situation, seeing a strongly hooded figure in extremely dark red light or in outlines inbetween the curtain slits - and projected, motivated by their longing from the loss, simply more into the 're-union', than there actually was!

EXPERIENCES AT KAI MUEGGES SEANCES AT THE 'WDC', NEAR SYDNEY, NOV. 2013 - by William Treurniet

Besides the several times observed twinkle effect, two other sitters observed a strange attraction of a stream of very fine matter, before the object suddenly formed directly below the opened palm (after several openings and closings)
 On November 13, 2013, I attended a seance at the Wallacia Development Center (WDC), Australia, led by the medium Kai Muegge. Kai's spirit control, the deceased Hans Bender, produced anomalous phenomena while the medium was controlled (handled) by two sitters on either side of his chair. There were loud raps on the walls and ceiling, and little balls of light flitted around the room in the dark. Hans also produced a sheet of illumination like a white aurora borealis that moved past sitters seated well away from the medium. I experienced being struck on the hands and knees by unknown objects, and felt a stroking of the hair on the back of my head. A trumpet prop, self-illuminated by fluorescent tape, flew around the room, occasionally striking me and other sitters.

The highlight occurred for me when I was invited to sit cross-legged on the floor in front of the medium seated in his chair. There was sufficient red light near the medium to see clearly what was happening. After i had checked his left hand very thoroughly by touch, he extended it with palm facing down, and instructed me to hold my hands open beneath his hand. His stationary hand opened and closed a number of times until an object fell from his palm into my waiting hands. I watched his hand intently, and was able to see the object form directly under his palm. It twinkled briefly during the transition from nothing to matter. The apport was a white stone or crystal. Hans explained during its creation that this object encapsulated little pockets of ectoplasm. These might be the scattering of brown dots visible at one end of the stone in the image below.

The apported stone that 'twinkled into matter' in front of Williams eyes



Different crystal apports were given to at least four other sitters during several sittings at Wallacia. One of these recipients also reported a sparkling effect as the object formed, and another sensed an upward flow of 'something' towards the medium's palm just prior to the object's formation.

A sitting on November 17 was interrupted when one of the medium's controls became unwell and I was invited to replace her. I became one of two persons who continuously held the medium's hand and knee in the dark while he was in front of the cabinet, and held the curtain of the cabinet aside while he moved into the enclosure. An apport was produced from the medium's left hand in this sitting as well. I was positioned slightly behind and below his left elbow and was able to monitor the hand from the rear. The red light appeared less bright from this position, and I saw the object as a shadow as it fell from the medium's hand to the floor. This time, the formation of the object was not accompanied by the sparkle effect. We can speculate that this was because the forming crystalline matter was different, or because the sparkle resulted from reflection of ambient red light. In this case it might not have been bright enough for the reflection to be seen.

From the vantage point of the medium's control, I was in a good position to view the created ectoplasm that built up in a white heap of fabric-like material on the floor in front of the medium's feet. Hans' intent was to form the shape of a hand extending from this heap. This was accomplished twice after the medium re-entered the cabinet for a moment and then emerged to show the result. I clearly saw in red light a human-like hand extend above the ectoplasm with fingers in different positions each time. The hand was well-formed but one or two fingers seemed to be thinner at the end than expected.

The observed materializations in these sittings convinced me beyond any doubt that physical anomalies had occurred. I now hold the normal-appearing crystal I was given and marvel at how I had watched it come into existence from nothing.
