MEDIUMISTIC DEMONSTRATIONS AT 'GORDON HIGGINSON FELLOWSHIP'-EVENT - with Bill Meadows, Scott Milligan, Kai Muegge, Terry Tasker, Eileen Davis, Glyn Edwards and MEDRADO

Gordon Higginson was one of the finest mediums of the last century and a great medium, speaker and teacher. His gifts of mediumship were wide ranging and comprised mental mediumship, trance, physical mediumship and healing.  Gordon was also a man of great charisma and an outstanding servant of the Spiritualist Movement. (gordonhigginson.co.uk) Through the Gordon Higginson Fellowship his Founder Glyn Edward, who was once a scholar of Gordon, wants to behold the memory of this great man and medium

Over the last week around 130 Students of the Gordon Higginson Fellowship were offered an extremely rich event-schedule! Strong Physical Seances were held, workshops, Mental Mediumship Demonstrations and Lectures around the topic.
Every Student sat with every Physical Medium in Seance and was able to witness first hand how the Spirit World intrudes ours via the joint-ventured Deep Trance Process!

Besides the performance of our FEG Spirit Team, in Physical Mediumship the Audience was experiencing the productions of Bill Meadows' and Scott Milligans' Spirit Team as well.
All the Seances were held under strictest control measures. Meanwhile the english mediums were traditionally tightly bound into their chairs and demonstrated, that every opportunity to slip out of the control or exchange the cable binds were excluded, the FEG-Medium was hold permanently by two controllers, as it is tradition in German Physical Mediumship Research since the great days of Rudi Schneider (ingenious physical medium), Albert Freiherr v. Schrenck-Notzing (Scientist and Researcher) and Marthe Beraud.
The Physical Medium Scott Milligan also developed right from his adolesence his exciting Ectoplasmic Physical Mediumship. He is moreover a superb tutor for trance and other mediumship-topics

For the Audience especially interesting to witness was exactly that different approach, represented by the characteristics of the spirit controls and their modi operandi to guide the sitters through the sessions.
Meanwhile it is typical to work in english spiritualism with guides of a caliber of deceased priests, wise indians and energetical children, the german spirit team is mostly built of spirit scientists and pioneers of the spiritistic era.

Apported through the faculties of the FEG-Spirit Team: At the end of Kais second seance he was seated in front of the cabinet. Bright red light illuminated the scene, when he was taken into four limb control. The trance personality spoke and announced the arrival of an apported gift to Donna James, who did the medium control during the session. Suddenly the medium started to breath heavily and moan, when in front of everybodies eyes in front of him an object fell to the ground: a typical apport as it has happened many times before with Kai...
The result is, that the course of the 'german' seance was very 'experiment-oriented' and pragmatical - with a spirit scientist, that was permanently explaining what was going on under their (spirit-)control and who led the sitters that way step by step onto the increasing levels of their influence along the evening. Another huge topic for the spirit scientist is the 'medium control': unnervingly often he lets the sitters listen to the detailed description of how the control is performed by the persons left and right from the medium, who hold him tightly on arms and legs during the darkness phases of the seance, when in up to 6 feet distance focus objects are manipulated by the spirit scientists and other etherical visitors. Partially striking and upsetting, resp. comforting Messages were also brought through to several sitters over the three FEG-Spirit Team Seances.
The Bill Meadows Circle whose strength lies in Bills excellent physical mediumship as well as in his wifes and Cirlce leaders Colleen Charisma. Their sessions are amazing and exciting and live especially through the highly characteristic spirit-child personality "Marie".
 The exciting UK-Mediums Spirit Teams work lives additionally from the dynamic of their spirit teams, energetic child-personalities or meaningful indians or priests or comparable types of controls alternate meanwhile phenomena are going on! Fraud-proof their mediums bindings are as well! No question that neither young Scott Milligan, nor the elderly Bill Meadows could escape their bindings that are always checked and presented by and to the sitters to their full satisfaction.
Both spirit teams perform marvelous phenomena and give messages further as well!

The Room ready for the FEG Spirit Teams seance. The seances were all held in the conference hall of the Eastbourne Centre Hotel. In the background Julia Muegge.
In Scott Milligans Seance for example, even though the medium was very tightly bound to his chair by cable binds, a written message by the deceased Tom Harrison to his wife Anne appeared, lying on the ground. Under no circumstances this message could have been written fraudulently by Scott, because he must have freed himself, what the marked cable binds did prevent.
With Bill for example it is the case, that you see Bill sitting in red light, tightly bound to the armchair before the Seance starts. The two controlling sitters have just left the cabinet and have left the curtains open. They had just checked, that there was no possibility for Bill to free himself anyhow and the lights are turned of.
Not three seconds later (!!!) the first objects rise from the table to the left of his cabinet!

So the sitters - in regards to physical mediumship - have been presented extraordinary performances of interacting spiritual entities!

Then Dr. Jose Medrado, the former full materialisation medium and today trance painter (upper left), FEG-Groups Physical Medium Kai Muegge (upper middle) and his 'colleagues' Scott Milligan' (second lower left) and Bill Meadows (second lower right)
Additionally to that rich range of events the most respected mental mediums of UK performed: Eileen Davis from Scotland, who is an icon already in her lifetimes, Terry Tasker, who has a wonderful attitude to bring people together with their loved ones and the unique Glyn Edwards offered amazing demonstrations and workshops! 

Brazils famous medium and trance painter Dr. Jose Medrado during his opening speech! This photo was taken, when the strong clinical smell occurred induced by a certain spirit control of Medrado, a physician.

Thursday one of the highlights of the week was scheduled: the speech and trance-session of Dr. Jose Medrado, the trance painter! The Doctor for Philosophy was in the eighties a brazilian FULL MATERIALISATION MEDIUM and became famous for the fully materialised spirit of an unknown (?) female, who was called, because of her bridal looking dress, simply 'the bride'. Fully enclothed in ectoplasmic substance the bride made headlines besides the many other full materialisations in Brazil, one of the spiritualistic heartlands since the times of Allen Kardec, whose ideas and books was a main influence for brazilian spiritualism!

When Medrado became older his body started to suffer too much from the materialisation work and his spirit team changed completely. Today his main spirit control RENOIR enables him to become overtaken during the course of an approx. 90 minutes lasting session by the leading master painters of the past.
In less than 5 minutes paintings like the ones presented here are produced by him.
He applies an amazing technique for which he uses his fingers and brushes to bring colour onto the canvas.
He claims that the spirit controls apply layers of ectoplasm between the colour to form and finalize them in such a speed.

Another amazing phenomenon around him occurred two times in Eastbourne, in the conference hall filled with nearly 150 persons. As it is a brazilian tradition mediums there have mostly a physician, mostly german ones, in their spirit team. And when Medrado just mentioned he had been given a short input by exactly this guide, the room filled immediately with an unmistakeable strong smell of something, like aceton, or another strong cleansing-liquid, everybody instantly associated with the smell of a hospital.
Like a huge wave the smell two times travelled from Medrados place on the stage in every direction and EVERYBODY in the room smelled it clearly!
An amazing experience who has never before experienced such an olfactorial phenomenon!

Within less than 5 minutes pictures like these (examples) are painted in a mix-technique of finger and brush-painting, More than 4000 Pound one of the Pictures did made during the auction later for Medrados "City of Light"!

In the auction for Medrados paintings inspired by Renoir, Gauguin, Monet, Picasso, Lutrec, Klimt and others, several thousands pounds could be made for the untired humanitarian work Medrado is doing in Brazil with his "City of Light"! A huge humanitarian centre for poor peoples medical care and free meals. Mainly the City of Light is for orphans and for their education every single penny from the paintings is being taken. Medrado himself is working for the brazilian government and has a regular income! His trance work shall sew seeds for spiritualism and shall collect money for his centre!

An extremely packed week of incredible content came to an end at Friday!
We want to thank the Gordon Higginson Fellowship for having given us the opportunity to be part of such a great event!

FEG-SURVIVAL EVIDENCE AND THE CHAINS OF DOGMATIC SPIRITUALISM

Again and again certain people complain publicly, the Felix Circle would not operate under the guidelines of Spiritualism, respectively would not produce Survival Evidence.

Everybody who has sat with the FEG or who is reading the published independent reports knows that this is false! Some people seem to simply ignore these reports or they write their comments without having no knowledge about what is happening at all during FEG-sessions.

We ask ourselves, why this is so, and we believe our different sociocultural background and tradition in conversing with spirit is enough for those people not only to reject us but to frequently claim publicly about the worthlessness of the FEG Mediumship!

Spirit Communicators we work with and don't fit into a certain "survivalist"-pattern are being laughed about and - typically for the internet - with malice and from behind their desktops they try to fight on different sites for their claim that no, or not enough, or not the way it used to happen, survival evidence is brought forward through our work.

Usually we should not care for the opinions of single parties, on the other hand side it makes sense to once and for all introduce only a few of the powerful Survival-Evidence events, the FEG-Mediumship is regularly bringing forward!

THE SPIRITISTIC TRADITION
The Felix Experimental Group works in the tradition of the German Spiritists, especially in the tradition of Rudi Schneider, a famous Austrian Physical Medium.
Spiritists value the communication with spirit without having made a religion out of it.

We believe in Life after Death, but also, that mediumship goes far beyond the survival question.
Survivalism and Spiritualism, (and spiritism naturally as well) are earthly (!) constructs and we believe we shall not reduce our spirit communication with patterns these earthly constructs do implicate.

We believe moreover mediumship has to be freed from any kind of earthly dogmatism to become able to really bring forward higher knowledge!

Nevertheless the FEG Spirit Team brings forward striking survival evidence regularly because Survival is an important part of a higher order, but far from being its essence, we believe.
We also believe that the physical phenomena induced by spiritual entities speak for themselves and are self-evidentialy pointing to that higher realm we all will once enter!

Yes, it is true, we will survive, but this survival will happen in terms that go far beyond our capabilities of comprehension and communication and we believe, that spirit-personalities of the deceased actually have to downgrade themselves, back to the patterns they once have fulfilled, when they become part in an interdimensional communication attempt.

From the moment on the soul has become a free potential, unbound from the chains of space and time, it does so quickly veer away from its earthly existence and terms and ascends into higher realms of spiritual awareness and existence.

Its a huge leap, a dimensional change that alters (nearly) everything, that once had a certain meaning.

Still so many people haven t internalized the achieved knowledge about Life after Death from many different research areas and are in the personal need for the annointment of becoming confirmed the human survival!

The FEG Spirit Team does what it can to help in these instances. And mostly it delivers it in the typical way of western spiritualism, because thats the language people speak when they want to converse with the spirit-world.

THE FEG-SURVIVAL EVIDENCE
So what is it, that we describe as striking. What is it, when we say, that some of the messages arrive in physical shape?

With several examples we want to show the reader once and for all, what the FEG-Spirit Team is capable to produce, when transfering the message of Survival to the people, to our fellow sitters:

1. The most dearest relatives of a female sitter are showing up on Polaroid-based Experimentation in Spirit Photography, lead by the main spirit control, the deceased Professor of Parapsychology Hans Bender in 2008. The spirit control announced beforehand, two spirit personalities were very close to a person of the group and would not only show up on the photos, but would be immediately recognized by their 'receiver'.


Picture: Long term sitter Silvi B. is visited during Psychic Photography Experiments by her dearest relatives, that manage to show up on two photos between a row of ten shots. Noone in the room was aware of any family relationship of hers.

Picture: Silvis dearest aunts, how they appear on an old picture that hangs in Silvis Living Room....

Previously to their appearance on the psychic photography the spirit control had announced, the visitors would appear in a way Silvi was used to look at them...

Nobody of the FEG-Group had ever been in her living room or knew about this photo!

2. Sitter S.W. was contacted by her deceased mum who was begging for forgiveness for what she had done to her. A huge emotional potential, that was touched in that communication refering to a dark childhood in a burdened family, could be released that night, when the mother was admitting all she had done. In the end she wanted to give her daughter something, that he allegedly had wished for.
A piece of jewelry then fell onto S. shoulder.

After the Seance S. confirmed she actually had wished for something from the spirit world, she could carry around with her. So her mother, as a symbol for her Love, overgave her a piece of Jewelry from the spirit world, S. from then on wore. First she carried it with her around in her pocket, then after a few days, she hung it around her neck....

Picture: A piece of Jewelry from the Spirit world, apported 2010 by a deceased mom for her daughter in the seance room ...

3. From one of the first classical cabinet sittings in 2009 on - the group sat with a cabinet before, but never inside of it - Author Costas and Ellen Waitzis were regular guests. Start of 2011 Ellen died unexpectedly during a hospital stay for a knee surgery.

From then on Costas became a regular sitter and waited for Ellen to come back to him in the Seance Room. After 5 months someone approached him (medium controlled) in the dark and kissed him several times onto the head. He immediately knew it was Ellen.
During the upcoming sittings this contact did strengthen and after several more reluctant approaches Costas was finally able to hold his Ellen - seemingly fully materialized - in the dark. Meanwhile they were embracing and kissing themselves, the spirit control announced from the cabinet, that Ellen had brought a present from the spirit world, he from now on should carry close to his heart to have her always with him: an apported beautiful lead crystal...

Costas wrote extensively about the incidents to friends and befriended ITC-organizations and the new edition of his book about the spirit world will contain it as well!
That man, who was broken, became fulfilled again, gained weight and is since his final contact with Ellen today with 80 years more active than ever...

4. During a sitting the American Physician Neal Rzepkowski was adressed by two spirit personalities. One spoke to him accent-free Lakota, a sub-dialect of the Dakota Tribe, called him a real "medicine man" and that he would be ready for the "song of the pipe"! The song of the pipe is a metaphor only known to people quite close to Indian culture! It means that the person has shown, that he is mature enough to converse with the world of Spirit!

Noone in the room knew, that Neil had a Dakota spirit-guide, in fact noone knew he was a doctor at all. Neil claimed in front of the people to be a medium in America. That is so important because the indian in spirit had brought with him another man. A former patient of Neal, who was quickly identified by him, after the spirit mentioned some remarks in connection with Neals treatment of him in the past.

Neal writes: Although I occasionally thought about LL over the years, it had been some time since he last came to mind. I was very surprised and grateful that he greeted me during the seance.
The second spirit person to greet me was a Lakota Sioux Indian. (I recognized him as one of my guides). the spirit control of Kai started to say he was pointing a stick at me and then corrected himself and said it was actually a pipe. 
He then (...) pronounced quite correctly 2 words that the guide gave me to identify. 
I am quite sure no one else in the room, and certainly not Kai nor HB, would have known the Lakota language, but I do know a fair amount of vocabulary, and immediately recognized these words. (...) 

This is a very impressive and extraordinary example of spirit communication to me.
There was much more that happened in the séance, and others also received evidential messages. However, since it is late as I write this, I will conclude here and say that I was “blown away” by the whole experience. I believe that the British expression for this would be “gobsmacked”.

Read his full report!


5. When Mediumship Researcher Marion Dampier Jeans was visiting us she received one of the famous wax-ball apports from the FEG-Spirit Team. Inside was the handwriting of famous Danish Medium Einer Nielsen. Einer Nielsen materialized spirit personalities for nearly 50 years.

Marion, who is a born Danish, contacted with the apported piece of paper a specialist at a Danish newspaper. With his expertise it could be stated, that it was in fact the handwriting of the deceased Einer Nielsen, written in the Danish Grammar of the fifties. Moreover the writing contained Super knowledge the medium could not have known previously. Read Marions own report on her website please!

Picture: Front of the apported original handwriting of Danish Medium einer Nielsen...

6. Many of you know Ann Harrison. She is today a commited publisher of important spiritualist literature! Her husband Tom Harrison, son of the Materialisation Medium Minnie Harrison, was one of the icons of the spiritualist movement, when he died in 2011.
2012 Ann sat in a FEG-Spirit Team Seance, when the spirit control from the cabinet was asking for total silence in the room, because someone was shuffling in a typical manner over the floor of the dark Seance room.
After she had announced that she immediately identified her husband, the spirit control carried on to give personal information to Ann from the cabinet, meanwhile the materialized spirit personality was audibly moving through the room. When the spirit control announced that Tom now would try to touch her, she immediately felt a brief touching on her knee. She sat at least 3 metres from the cabinet, the medium was permanently speaking from.

Ann writes: Who else could it be but Tom Harrison, my husband, back again in his
‘home’ Centre. We heard his familiar shuffling footsteps as he moved
across the room. Professor Bender (spirit control) then went on to say the man wished to
touch someone in the circle. Because I was at almost the furthest
possible point (almost 3 metres) from the cabinet I encouraged him to
try to touch Barbara who was nearer but no, with an extreme effort, I
felt a tap firmly on my knees (a warm, soft but firm fist) before he was
pulled back towards the cabinet. A few minutes later, after we had sung
again, Hans Bender came back to say that the man, ‘Thomas’, wanted to
tell that lady something (that something was very pertinent to me).

Read Anns full report on her website please...

Picture: Tom and Ann Harrison

We could easily carry on to list further examples of what we consider is regularily called "Survival Evidence". But we want to overhand it to the reader to carefully study these accounts - and several more, if you should wish so here on the FEG Blog - to decide, to answer this question for yourselves, if Survival Evidence is happening or not happening at the Felix Experimental Group!

The mere fact, that our approach is another than from mediums raised in a spiritualistic country and doesn t always fit into the patterns of Spiritualism - for example because of our mediumistic contact with what we call "Super Spirits", that claim to be stone-old cosmological entities - some believe it is righteous to discredit, dismiss and state frequently false things publicly about our work!
In the name of the 'true' spiritualistic mediumship...

Please make up your own mind now!

THE STEPHEN BRAUDE INVESTIGATION OF THE MEDIUMISTIC PHENOMENA AT THE FELIX CIRCLE IN GERMANY 2012 (with many photos and video)

Picture: Prof. Stephen Braude 2012 during his investigation of the FEG-Mediumship

REUNITE PHYSICAL MEDIUMSHIP AND SCIENCE

We want to inform you today about a huge leap forward, about an attempt to reunite science and Physical Mediumship, about the investigation of Americas leading Parapsychologist, Prof. Stephen Braude, of the mediumship of K.M., the Physical Medium of the Felix Experimental-Group in Hanau, Germany.

Braude is in his sixties, a retired Professor of Philosophy from the University of Maryland, Editor of the Journal for Scientific Exploration and is for decades involved in Mediumship and Makro-PK, (especially Physical Mediumship), Consiousness- and Afterlife-Research. His books "The Limits of Influence", "Immortal Remains" and "The Gold Leaf Lady" are counted to the most valid and intellectual debate contributions of today.

After 9 days of having everything done to be fully transparent for this second investigation of Braude, he made considerable statements in regards to his findings. 'The control conditions were excellent' (quote), there were no fraud indications and the mediums cooperation he believes, 'should set the standard of behavior for all Physical Mediums' (quote) working under scientific scrutiny in the future.
'I was given thorough access to all the premises and full cooperation from the medium!' (quote)

BRAUDES SECOND VISIT 
It was Braudes second visit, after he had observed unquestionable phenomena the last time, but the control issues in regards of the medium during the cabinet sitting at his first visit end of 2010 weren t satisfying to him, because he didn t know the people, that were holding the medium, nor did he know the medium nor its surrounding, the circle and family.
 That is why Prof. Braude didn t want to publish something before he wouldn t have had the opportunity to return to the FEG's bomb shell cellar in Hanau!

This he did now!


Picture: Stephen Braude and Robert Narholz 2012 in Hanau

Originally we were doubting if it was clever to let these investigations being done further on, because we knew from the history, that the mediums never had won something from these investigations. Unexpected and inconsiderable flaws during the control in the end always left room for doubt, what in the end had lead to the exclusion of that kind of Mediumship from the research efforts of Modern parapsychology (same happened to Poltergeist-Phenomena) mostly.

Such doubts then always lay on the shoulders of the medium psychologically, whose honesty in the end is questioned then, even though it had nothing to do with it at all!

An example: A sitter opens the chain to scratch its nose! A thorough scientific report NEEDS to mention this. In the end it cannot be avoided to theorize that this exactly might have been the moment accompliceship had taken place. Everything else that might have been perfect and valid can be destroyed by such inconsiderable moments in time.

With the many researchers we had here we have learned that such inconsiderable events cannot be excluded without taking the medium to a laboratory, where the whole setting needed is naturally annulled completely in the end.

Picture: The FEG Medium Kai Muegge had his first sitters circle with physical phenomena at the age of 15 (here in the Interview with American Film-Maker Robert Narholz)

So anyways, we followed the urging of our scientific circle leader Dr. J.S. to let Prof. Braude come for a second time, because he believed Braude was aware of all of that and applies a highly psychologically sophisticated approach to his mediumship research.
Together with Braude the American Film-Maker Robert Narholz came to film for a Physical Mediumship documentary. (Finding PK)

So persuading Braude would mean, despite all the sympathy, he this time wanted to imply much stricter controls during the three sessions, especially during the main Cabinet Seance during the week...
And this he did.

Supported by the scientifically thinking 'main spirit control' of the medium, the deceased Prof. Hans Bender, who is permanently vigilant that the control of the medium is perfect, Braude did achieve what he was coming for!

We were expecting that Braude wouldn t be able to validate our own claims of standing in contact with deceased personalities, but we expected being able to show him unquestionable physical phenomena under good control conditions - especially the ectoplasm - enabling him to evaluate no fraud is involved.


So over 9 days and three sessions Braude was observing, filming (infrared table levitation) and witnessing full levitation in sufficient red light, raps, touches, spirit lights and object movement far out of reach of the medium while having the medium and the mediums wife under control (registering every movement of them)and ectoplasm and some of its features. Spirit Communication was happening as well with messages for Braude and Robert Narholz.
Braude will publish a thorough report in a scientific journal about his investigation, we were allowed to read but we naturaly cannot publish it on the blog beforehand its publishing.


During the last table session a full levitation could be filmed. Note the mediums (with his back to the camera) one hand above the table and his rocking with its chair. Levitating a table with ones foot needs to have a safe stand! Moreover full levitations were observed a few days earlier in good red light showing all hands were on the table and all feet on the ground...

BRAUDES STATEMENTS
Braude writes in regards to the table sittings: (quote start) '(...) we had 5 clear table levitations, 3 of which occurred in red light sufficient to see hands on the table and legs beneath (on the floor). In the latter, we were able to record a brief levitation with infrared video. Although it can't be regarded as strictly evidential (because not all sitters or hands were visible from the single camera angle), I consider it a valuable document of an event I'm convinced was authentic.
I also received an apport which arrived while the hands of all sitters were visible in red light, joined. No device was discovered that might have released the metal figurine of the Indian goddess for wisdom and knowledge Saraswati.' (quote end)

THE CABINET SEANCE
For the most scepticism inducing Cabinet Seance we allowed Braude to take a place, usually only close people to the medium are allowed to take, directly besides it with the task to control it at all four limbs, when phenomena were occurring out of reach of the medium.

The sitters were seated in a way, that not 2 of the present 3 circle members sat adjacent to one another to exclude one was able to free him/herself from the sitters chain without being detected to fake phenomena!

Stephen writes: (Quote start) 'The cabinet sitting was important to me because I was able to control both Kai and Julia (mediums wife) during the proceedings as well as monitoring pre-seance conditions very carefully (including a strip search of the medium).

Kai cooperatively allowed us to see under the folds in his belly and inside his underwear. We didn’t conduct a full cavity search, but it was clear that no contrivance or mass of cloth or other material was concealed externally. Jochen then provided Kai with a fresh set of clothes, which I inspected before Kai dressed. We then walked Kai down to the cellar, and Kai kept his hands raised in full sight the entire time so that I could be sure that he wasn’t grabbing some accessory on the way downstairs.' (quote end)

Picture: After a brief table levitation, the medium announced that a nervous vegetative state might announce phenomena. The table stopped to rock suddenly. Then Braudes Camera failed, the battery had unloaded itself somehow. The Medium asked for red light and the 4 people present could see the medium very well. "Grab my hands, the medium announced". Standing that way around the table, suddenly an object fell from the ceiling or mid-air! A figurine of the Indian Goddess Saraswati for knowledge and wisdom. Earlier it was theorized if Braude might get 'a gift from the spirit world'.

Then Braude started to witness the first phase of what the spirits call "building up a forcefield" that enables them to interact on our dimensional level with the sitters. That field is the base that ectoplasm can build up and form and act in the end. Over several experiments the spirit world is testing then the level of influence by trying to affect and manipulate (focus-)objects and building ectoplasmic forms in the room.

(quote start) 'Many of the usual object movements and lights occurred at a distance from the medium while I controlled him, and I'm impressed by the fact that they seemed to occur just after the medium twitched or grabbed my hand. But while the various physical phenomena occurred, I controlled Kai, and I sometimes controlled Julia as well. I sat to Kai's left, only a few inches away. My right hand grabbed Kai's left hand and rested on Kai's left leg, which I also touched with my right leg (and my left foot was in front of his left foot). (...) I also reached across Kai's lap and my left hand grabbed one or both of Julia's hands in such a way that my forearm rested on Kai's right leg. So I could be sure that Kai didn't move from his spot during the phenomena, many of which took place at least 50 inches from Kai.' (quote end)

Pic: Braude preparing his infrared, wideangel camera before the third session with the FEG 2012

THE SPROUTING ECTOPLASM
(quote start) 'When the ectoplasm appeared, I sat approximately 1 meter from the mass that Kai pulled from his mouth, and in red light I could clearly see it, lying outside the cabinet and separated from the medium, moving, as if it was breathing.
Then twice I saw it sprout what looked like a hand with fingers, moving left and right and seeming to wave.

In each case (of the curtain openings), the “breathing” mass seemed to sprout a gradually developing hand-like appendage, with distinguishable (but not clearly separated) fingers.

The next time we opened the cabinet, we saw an already formed long protrusion or narrow column coming from the mass, rising to a height of 3 or 4 feet, looking like a semi-transparent tube.
The medium’s left hand passed slightly back and forth across the top, as if to show that nothing was pulling the protrusion up from above.(Quote end)

EXCLUDING FRAUD

Naturally Braude discusses in his paper imaginable fraud techniques in his report, but needs to reject them in the end for obvious reasons. The decision to let Braude sit so close was right, because exactly this enabled him to do very detailed observations:

(Quote start) 'The mass was outside the cabinet and Kai remained inside. But the breathing (or flexing) seemed to be animated from inside the substance, and the mass was expanding at different points within it.
(...) And as for the hand, no hair could explain how it gradually took shape and became more determinately hand-like.

Moreover, since I was with Kai from the time he was strip-searched, and since I saw no contrivance in the séance room before or after the séance, I rate it as highly unlikely that Kai used some sort of hidden device to produce the animated ectoplasm.'

'I’m especially grateful to Kai for allowing me not only to control him directly, but also to conduct a strip search, and to observe him after the séance. I will eventually publish a full and detailed report of my experiences.' (quote end)

SPIRIT MESSAGES
Stephen Braude and Robert Narholz were both receiving messages from spirit personalities. Both weren t revealing their names and were trying to persuade the sitters of their genuity by telling both guys things, the medium did not know:

Braude was contacted by an old research fellow of him who tried to remind him of a conversation they had about the 'spirit control' of another medium, the research fellow was involved with.
Maybe this spirit talked in too many riddles, Braude could not remember having a discussion about a spirit guide at all, even though his first guess, who that spirit guide might have been was right - the caribean pirate "Jean Lafitte".

So be it as it may, Robert Narholz in the contrary was adressed by the grand-mother of a person he was filming with at the time and at the moment he trys to validate what was given through.  

After 9 days Braude did leave the M.-Family, that had learned to like Braudes humorous and sensible character very much. Even though he does not think in spiritualistic terms he is counted to the most respected researchers in the field. We thank him for taking the time to evaluate the phenomena at the Felix Experimental Group, the Mediumship of Kai.M.
