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
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.
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.
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“.
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.
During the scanning-procedure i very clearly recognize the announced clarification and i become nervous a bit in regards to its outcome.
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
"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.“
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“.
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!"
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, are you still part of the experiment?"
I answer: "Yes".
Hans says: "We start to prepare the ectoplasmic matter, music and singing please...!"
Installation within the cabinet
Hans calls me: „With mild red light Olivier please come to the cabinet with your chair.“
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!"
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!"

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.
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.
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.
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!"
- after a first securing - a third one.
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.
He expresses his thanks of having me taking part in this unique experiment and I thank for the invaluable experience.
"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!
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
