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

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!

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.

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.
