|The Specialty with the Apports of the FEG-Medium is, that they are previously announced to enable the spectators to fully witness everything going on, from the thorough check of the hand to the sudden appearance slightly beneath...|
Kai, the medium, told me that he wanted to convince the trance personality "Hans Bender" - a german Parapsychologist further on referred to as “HB” - while having his meditational preparation just before the séance.
Then during the séance progress “HB” requested a red light phase.
After pretty bright red light was provided the trance personality positioned the medium on his chair in front of the cabinet. Sitting in front of the cabinet and in bright red light the medium then stretched out his left arm with his open palm pointing to the ground.
I was sitting on the left directly besides the medium and was allowed to search thoroughly his shirt, full length of the arm and his open hands for hidden devices and objects, which took least 45 sec.
The medium didn´t wear a watch nor a finger ring.
After the check showed that there was in fact nothing else but the mediums hand, it started to clench its fist, opened it then slightly with slowly moving fingers while sitting motionless in his chair.
After holding the empty hand 30-60 sec. in exactly that position an object dropped out of the hand and fell rapidly to the floor.
I was fully enabled to follow the whole process and could never see any suspicious movements (e.g. a quick or abrupt motion).
Furthermore I was able to witness this process while looking beneath the medium´s outstretched arm. Several other sitters did so as well and confirmed my impressions.
|In a slightly grabbing manner the mediums hand was moving outstretched after I had checked it. Suddenly the object was seen by us sitters directly below falling from it ...|
After the séance I performed some research in order to gain more information about this apport.
The apport was a pyrite gemstone, which was regarded as gold due its color in the history. It was found nowadays that pyrite is a sulfur compound and for this reason it is called “Fools Gold”. Nevertheless sulfur and its compounds are medically used in order to treat rheumatic and other joint related health issues.
Furthermore (and this is the more baffling aspect of the apport) there is a deep emotional connection-level to the previous apport we received in Austria. The Austrian one was a copper apport though the medium trying to materialize a golden foil from a poltergeist case, which was once investigated by Prof. Stephen Braude. Braude et al. found that the agent paranormally produced brass (containing copper!!), which looked like gold and thus they called it “Fools Gold”.
In Austria the foil was used as 'focus'-object and the medium apported the substance the foil is made 80% of!
The pyrite gemstone we received also looks like brass although it´s pyrite.
Moreover were the control sittings in Austria 4 weeks ago attending scientists discussing then a peculiar apport-experiment Ernesto Bozzano was reporting with a pyrite stone - and the medium was also present.
Summing up I again witnessed a convincing gemstone apport under controlled conditions, which had several aspects of “creative dissociation” while having gained 'universal consciousness' during the trance state as demonstrated by other famous historical mediums before.
