A time lapse photograph of a horse and carriage to show the difference in a seance Spirit photograph and this doctored one. First one photograph was taken and then another take of the same place and the same films plate used. Things to look out for are :-  NOTICE the head of the horse has moved and so is a blur, also NOTICE the lamp lighter, who was at one time lighting the light then went out of the picture, the set of ladders are shown as solid as the carriage, so they have not been moved. NOTICE also the passer-by, who is across the road at the right and then must have moved away as he is a shadowy see through figure, because the first photograph was taken with a fast shutter speed.

Photograph by Edouard Isidore Buguet are Monsieur Leymarie & Monsieur C; the Spirit extra is said to be an Edouard Poiret. 1874.

I do not know if this one is genuine BUT NOTICE the Spirit and the drapery are interwoven with the portraits of the live figures. NOTICE the ectoplasmic structure on the left is partly behind the left figure's head YET it is clearly over the front of the figure on the right. A hoax??? I cannot say.

In 1875 a French court saw fit to bring to trail the editor of Revue Spirite, which published all about Buguet and the photographic work he was doing. The court sentenced both Buguet and Leymarie to a year in prison for fraud. On a raid of Buguets premises, It was said that their were two shrouded dummies on it was said to represent a child, the other an adult. Also produced at the trail were 299 photographs of different peoples heads which were mounted on stiff carding.

It is said that after Buguet was shown the evidence he confessed. BUT later that year in Brussels at a Spiritual conference he enlarged on his statement in court that the dummies shown were used only by his employees when he was not there. Pointing out that most of his Spirit photographs were genuine, in fact two thirds was mentioned.

During his trail there were many people who testified on Buguet's behalf,  ex-professor of history, musician, Colonel of Artillery, photographic expert, merchant,  optician, journalist, and other people of prominence.

Also mentioned by William Stainton Moses at the time, [a Medium, and an Anglican Christian Minister, considered this image was one of the most important Spirit photographs ever made], "that the prosecution bore traces of clerical origin, and the judge was strongly biased, that Buguet was obviously a genuine Medium, who had no doubt been bribed or terrorized to make a spurious confession, and to fabricate a box full of trick apparatus for exhibition at the trial."

In modern times about the year 2000, in Stansted Hall UK, a very well known alleged English Physical Medium now a USA, TV Medium was caught out by throwing a trumpet into the air during a dark seance and unfortunately for him the trumpet got stuck in the bowl of the lights in the main hall where the demonstration was taking place. If the Spirit World takes it up and misses objects in the dark they DO NOT get anything struck, they bring it down gently. Another time in the dark a person at the Arthur Findlay College UK used an infra-red camera and covertly took film of the person again demonstrating alleged physical phenomena holding the trumpet and displaying it as though the Spirit World was levitating it and spinning it in the air. These are things everyone should be aware of when attending their seances when lighting is an issue. Lets face it the old Mediums most times after they had developed, used red lighting to illuminate their seances, they many times sat in red light and the dark to develop physical. The College is now very strict about which Mediums are allowed to take centre stage.

Another seance I attended in the north of the British Isles, in which I got hit with a glancing blow in the face by the trumpet. no one knew about it YET the people who were running the seance said to me did you get hit by the trumpet. HOW DID THEY KNOW, I did not cry out and  there was no noise as the hit was not hard it must have been felt by the person holding the trumpet in the dark.  BE AWARE OF WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN

Another well known blatant bit of trickery in physical seances that used to happen many years ago in Hafan y Coed Spiritual Centre [when it first started, it does not happen like that there now] by the then manageress, was to move the table with knees. That was until I took my 4 infra red cameras and placed them strategically so under the table and elsewhere could be seen in the blackness. This person nearly poked out the eye of one of the sitters with a stick that showed bright in the dark, the person was sitting across the table from this manageress.

Yet again in a darkened seance room a well travelled English Medium in 2008 was caught out in his seance in the UK by the lights of a car going past the building where the seance was taking place. He was seen standing up and blatantly holding the trumpet and waving it about. He ended the seance abruptly and quickly left and went over to Canada on his pre-booked tour to fool some others over there I suppose. NO MONEY was returned, he must have earned about 2000 for that night. ALL these things should be exposed. It is these people who give the movement a bad name.

A well known UK Hull Medium sits in an armed chair [Carver chair] which has arms that lift up so he can slip off the electric ties that bind him and this same person has UUUU shaped loops at the back of the chair so he can slip the rope off himself when tied by them. I should have thought if this person wanted to appear trustworthy he should have least glued the arms down and had 000000 shaped loops at the back of the chair to thread the ropes through so it could be seen he could not get out of the restraints without the help of the Spirit World. All this person had to do was to push his chest and stomach out from the back of the chair and when the lights are out to breathe in and shake off the ties. HE DID NOT ALLOW JUST ANYONE TO TIE HIM UP only his trusted sitters who sat beside him. When the lights were turned on he had the rope that bound him was on his lap and the ties were there also BUT the ties which bound his legs were still attached.

MANY PEOPLE CAN MISUSE A PLANCHETTE BY PUSHING AND MANIPULATING THE RESULTS.

BE VERY WARY of people who have their whole hand on the Planchette as they can have a tendency to manipulate the results by easily twisting and turning the Planchette to how they want the Planchette to point or go. Look at the white or red tips of the fingers of any person who is using the implement. Press down on the table with the tips of your own fingers so you know what to look for.

TABLE TILTING AND ROCKING

Some budding Mediums and ordinary people can be fooled and start fooling themselves when using their light tables for the communication with the Spirit World. They start the table rocking by placing their hands on top of the table instead of their fingers. They then push it in one direction then the other making it rock, they then go on to control the action so it spells out the letters of the alphabet. The table should be of a decent enough solid structure. [see the experiments done by the Dialectic Society in 1873]. Their  tables were in all cases heavy dining tables, requiring a strong effort to move them at all. The smallest of them was 5ft x 4ft, and the largest 9ft 9in x 4ft 6in and of proportionate weight.

At the Liverpool Spiritualist Church in Daulby Street, I actually saw Coral Mathews, Vice President and her home Circle give a demonstration in the church before about 30 enquirers, who were total strangers to the church, saying it was a demonstration of the Spirit World moving the table they were sitting around. It started off with a prayer then some of them placing their hand on the top of the table it was so small that all of them could not get their hands on top. It started rocking by some pressing and releasing the pressure and pushing, then they started lifting it upwards by having their thumbs under the table HOW RIDICULOUS CAN YOU GET. This is how much people can be fooled by the idiots. BUT THEY WERE NOT and lot of people came up to members of the church saying how stupid those sitting around the table were at believing that was the Spirit World and if this is the way the church was run they would not be coming back. That lady became the president for a short while, placed in her position BUT WAS NEVER ELECTED.

Eric Dingwall


Magician investigator of psychic claims with the UK and American Society of Psychical Research, in later life became a member of anti-paranormal belief group CSICOP. Harry Houdini in one newspaper article called Eric Dingwall a friend.

Magician Eric Dingwall witnessed phenomena he could not explain by conjuring on numerous occasions however didn't believe these were paranormal. A hard man to convince.

He was keen to reprint a 1880s(?) book (along with magician Harry Price) called 'Revelations of Spirit Medium by A Medium'.... an anonymously written book claimed by magicians to be written by a medium but never proven identity. The book could have be written by a magician and not a medium. This book basically taught magicians how to fake psychic performances and according to Houdini his early career was influenced by this book.

Although Eric Dingwall had been friendly with his former co-author Harry Price and had even witnessed strange phenomena in Harry Price's lab (e.g. psychic Stella Cranshaw) after Harry Price's death he co-authored another book with magician Trevor Hall implying Harry Price had cheated on other cases such as Borley Rectory ..... Harry Price's reputation was damaged by this and obviously being dead couldn't reply, perhaps Hall was more responsible but Dingwall must have agreed to the contents of the book being printed.

Eric Dingwall after many years gave up psychical research dismissing his fellow investigators with '...After sixty years' experience and personal acquaintance with most of the leading parapsychologists of that period I do not think I could name half a dozen whom I could call objective students who honestly wished to discover the truth.

However Dingwall did speak highly of one Society of Psychical Research investigator in particular In over 50 years of psychical research I found Everard Fielding to be the most acute and well balanced investigator I ever met, and in addition one of the noblest characters I met.

SPR researcher Everard Fielding ..... who reportedly also worked for British Intelligence.

Please remember that many of these researchers in the past, if they could not prove that the Medium was fraudulent they would put it around that they thought they were. It is that word thought that makes all the difference. Yes, there were some tricksters BUT NOT as many as the Christian and religious community would like to make out. Look at the finding of the Church of England and their findings that was hushed up. BUT there again some genuine Mediums did cheat when their energies waned.
