Please as you are reading the following pages, try to learn from them and put them into practice, just as you should with the many writing on this web site or learn from the book Meditation Oneness. It is so important to get at the truth and not go by what all of these sceptics are pushing through all our many informative forms of media. Do not take any notice of them [the sceptics] nor any other person, do not take anything on face value. It is only YOU and YOU alone can by doing it yourself, and seeing it yourself, eventually come to know the truth. Lets get away from always sitting in the dark without any form of evidence being produced, no form of recordings being shown afterwards. We now have the technology to record in the dark. [yes, sitting in the dark has to be done in some circumstances to produce phenomena]. Always remembering that it is with the permission of the Spirit World that it, this technical recording equipment is set up in the seance rooms across the many nations on this earth plain. You can see on page 4 of testing how to find out how to get permission from Spirit, and surprisingly, this is even if you are only just starting out on your quest to find the truth about the After Life existence. All you have to do is to put time aside.

In 1847 the Didier Brothers were tested twice by the Marquise de Mirville, by asking Robert Houdini the infamous 19th century conjurer and illusionist along to the seance. Houdini produced a book that he had brought along with him and asked Alexis to read out from the book eight pages back from the one open starting from a specific mark which Houdini had previously marked by a pin being stuck into the page. Alexis correctly read out the passages so Houdini at the time signed the following statement;  I affirm that the above facts are scrupulously accurate.

In the book Animal Magnetism E. W. Cox wrote about the Didier Brothers;  A party of experts was planned to test M. Alexis. We prepared a packet containing a single word of twelve letters and enclosed it in six envelopes of thick brown paper, each of which we carefully sealed. Handing him this packet he placed it, not before his eyes which were bound with handkerchiefs and wool, but upon his forehead, and in three minutes and a half he wrote the contents correctly, imitating the very handwriting. The word was by arrangement placed in the first envelope by a friend in a distant town, who was not informed of the object and who did not inform us what the word was; and none of us knew until the envelopes were opened and the word found to be that which the Somnambule had written.

In a Report of the Experiments on Animal Magnetism, by a Committee of the Medical Section of the French Royal Academy of Sciences, 1831: We have seen two somnambulists who distinguished, with their eyes closed, the objects which were placed before them; they mentioned the colour and the value of cards, without touching them; they read words traced with the hand, as also some lines of books opened at random. This phenomenon took place even when the eyelids were kept exactly closed with the fingers.

In 1837 the French Academy offered a prize of 3,000 francs for a demonstration of true clairvoyance. One of the claimants of the prize was the 12-years-old daughter of Dr. Pigaire, a physician, whose clairvoyant faculty was admitted by Arago. At the decisive seance the jury rescued itself from the award of the prize by stating that, according to the doctors, normal vision could not be excluded even if the girl's eyes were plastered up and covered with cotton wool and a silk [bias or what].

One strange thing happened in tests with Kluski, while he was in trance and restrained by Prof. Charles Richet and Dr Gustave Geley, they were holding his hands whilst sitting either side of the Medium. Unknown to Kluski the experimenters had put into the molten wax some soluble cholesterin so they could find out if any fraud was taking place. [a chemical reaction to form a coloured violet-red stain happens when sulphuric acid is introduced to the paraffin wax mould or where ever it touches]. With both Doctors sitting at either side, and holding onto Kluski during the whole of the experimental seance, moulds were again produced by the Spirit World. The wax mouldings at the end of the seance, turned out to be a young child s foot and their hand. Professor Richet recorded it and said it was a total mystery because they could not figure it out as they were holding the Medium s hand throughout, only to say it was not in any way done by the Medium himself because of the fact, the both of them had restrained him.

At a wide variety of seances in many different locations and circumstances Franek Kluski still produced materialization. Like other Mediums of the time he was subjected to conducting a seance in the nude or in a brightly lit venue. Quite often as happens in many other seances with other Physical Mediums, the Spirit Entities used their own energy for of illumination to show themselves, or they used the luminous plaque by holding it up towards themselves to show the sitters that they were there in the seance.

In the The Mediumship of Franek Kluski of Warsaw, by F. W. Pawlowski, Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research, 1925, he says,  the light from the plaque is so good that I could see the pores and the down on the skin of their faces and hands. One frequent visitor not only provided enough light to ensure that he could be seen, but this also illuminated the sitters and much of the seance room.

The health of the Medium took its toll on the phenomena at times, if he was not well, the phenomena and the materializations were weak and small in stature. Inclement weather also played its part in the form of storms and if there was thunder and lightening around, the phenomena would be adversely effected.

Like most Mediums who go through the trauma of physical phenomena Franek Kluski ended up exhausted after the seances and did not sleep very good after them. BUT most remarkable is the fact being reported of him vomiting blood. [This I feel was because the sitters were not taking care of Franek himself, while in the state of trance producing physical phenomena and interruptions in the Mediumship while producing ectoplasm. If ectoplasm is drawn back into the Medium after a sudden shock, or sudden noise in the seance, it is known that is can cause internal bleeding, as happened in the last seance of Helen Duncan which sadly killed her].

When in trance Frank Kluski was able to allow Spirit the use of his body for the production of luminous happening to his hands and body as though they were transparent. This happened in test conditions with a Dr Gustave Geley [French researcher]

In Berlin 1921 over a period of two months, October and November in the Fritz Grunewald Laboratory extensive tests were carried out on Anna Rasmussen. What stood out in the tests were the different electrical changes that took place in the laboratory in Anna's presence. The results were handed over at the second International Congress for Physical research in Warsaw.

Then in 1922, Anna was again placed under laboratory conditions in Copenhagen, under the watchful eyes of Professor Christian Winther, S.D. from the   Polytechnic Academy of Copenhagen, and his observing academics Professor Bondorff from the Danish Agricultural High School, A practicing Physician, a Dr A. Marner, and the laboratory's Director, a R Dons. It is said by the detailed notes of the 116 seances with Anna recorded by Professor Winther and published in the Psychic Research 1928. It is noted that there was not one negative comment by any of the observers.

It should be also noted that the sittings for the experiments took place in bright artificial light, or in daylight.

Some other experiments by Professor Winther in 1917 were carried out as follows,
Sunk into a concrete pillar was a tall glass shade, suspended in the interior of the shade were a number of bobbins or pendulums of dissimilar weights, hung by silk threads. No normal influence could move the bobbins, the whole set up was vibration proof. the bobbins could not be moved by knocking the set up or stamping on the floor. around the set up the sitters would arrange themselves. Each person being about a metre distance from the pendulums, Anna would go into a very light trance, and her alleged Spirit control Dr Lasaruz speak through, of course, the Mediums vocal cords Dr Lasaruz would then be asked to move the bobbins. Very slowly, one of the bobbins would begin to move, gradually increasing its impetus until it struck the sides of the glass shade.
At the seances I attended at Copenhagen, the bobbins were made to move to order, in various directions. at command the would lose amplitude, and slowly come to rest. at request, the bobbins would tell us the time by striking the nearest hour on the side of the glass shade. At the last seance at which I was present, we used bobbins containing pea-lights, which traced their pendulatory onto a moving strip of bromide paper. A permanent record of their movements was thus obtained.

If the seances were not organized to the Mediums satisfaction or too many trance seances undertaken, then she became very restless and complained of being ill, so the conditions were altered to help Anna Rasmussen be more comfortable, then experiments continued, as many as three or four a day became the norm. During the days of the experiments, Anna the Medium sat quietly in the Circle at the table, Anna and her testers talking normally, had a drink at intervals and some food, she read papers, and did not appear to have any connection of what was happening around her. The trance work took it out of her so the testers only allowed her to go into trance when a special subject needed studying.

Some experiments were carried out with her ability to do Automatic writing. During these experiments Anna who does not understand English neither write it, wrote in the English language but the spelling was a bit off the mark. It should be noted that neither Anna or her family had NO knowledge of the English language at all.

On another occasion with Harry Price as an observer, Raps were heard in the experiment and they seemed to come from the Medium's left shoulder, so Harry placed his ear against her shoulder and Price said he could distinctly hear the thumps from her body.

In later years it was reported that she visited London in 1938 in the winter time and her powers had almost gone.

An entranced Physical Medium Jack Webber while securely tied to chair, the Spirit World passed his coat through the body of this Medium as recorded on film so that no fraud could be put forward by the doubters or biased and professional sceptics.

Physical Medium Margery [Mina] Crandon producing ectoplasm in a controlled seance. She was photographed as everything happened, this photograph is during one of the many times she was being tested by the scores of scientists.

  Over his lifetime Franek Kluski produced many Spirit hand moulds under strictly controlled conditions.

[see in the photographs 2 section]

These photographs and many others are the end products of seances, in which the sitters had pots of molten / liquefied, hard paraffin wax. The Spirit who came through into the seance had to immerse the parts of the body they wanted to show to the sitters at the end of the seance. This, as candle makers know has to be done over and over to make sure the mould is strong enough. After a very short period of time, the liquid paraffin wax on the body part starts to cool and then fully harden into a stiff mould, the more the Spirit person dips it, the stiffer and more ridged it becomes. So the hands, feet and sometimes faces of the Spirit World were then able to be made into a durable plaster cast. Many of the wax moulds/casts are in a closed fist and a bent over fingers product and have a smaller wrist; one that is far smaller than the hands. The only way the person making them would be able to be released from the wax glove, without breaking the hardened wax mould, would it be to dissolve the body part inside the hardened wax mould.

Franek Kluski who whilst sitting in a controlled seance in a laboratory test in front of scientists, brought forward Spirit forms that dipped their hands into mainly hot molten wax BUT this time Spirit dipped their hands into molten rubber and produced this rubber cast.

Robert Hare 1781-1858, the nineteenth-century professor of chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania and early advocate of Spiritualism. Among his scientific discoveries was the oxy-hydrogen blowpipe. He wrote more than 150 scientific papers as well as additional papers on various political and moral questions.
Hare was born in Philadelphia January 17, 1781, and studied at the University of Philadelphia, where he filled the chair of chemistry from 1818 to 1847. As a high-ranking scientist of the day, he was one of the first scientific authorities to denounce early American Spiritualism in the press. In 1853 he wrote that he considered it An act of duty to his fellow creatures to bring whatever influence he possessed to the attempt to stem the tide of popular madness which, in defiance of reason and science, was fast setting in favour of the gross delusion called Spiritualism.

So at age 72 he began his investigations and devised a number of instruments that, contrary to his expectations, conclusively proved, he believed, that a power and intelligence other than that of those present was at work.
His first apparatus was a wooden board about four feet long, supported on a fulcrum about a foot from one end, and at the other end attached by a hook to a spring balance. A glass vessel filled with water was placed on the board near the fulcrum; a wire gauze cage attached to an independent support, not touching the glass at any point, was placed in the water. The Medium would affect the balance by simply placing his hand into the wire cage. The Medium Hare tested was Henry Gordon. The balance showed variations of weight amounting to 18 pounds. This apparatus had similarities to that used later by Sir William Crookes to test the Medium D. D. Home.
A second apparatus consisted of a revolving disk attached to a table in such a manner that the movements of the table actuated the pointer, which ran around the letters of the alphabet printed on the circumference of the disk and spelled out messages. The disk was arranged so that the medium could not see the letters. Hare's book Experimental Investigation of the Spirit Manifestation, published in 1855, sums up the results: The evidence may be contemplated under various phases; first, those in which rappings or other noises have been made which could not be traced to any mortal agency; secondly, those in which sounds were so made as to indicate letters forming grammatical, well-spelt sentences, affording proof that they were under the guidance of some rational being; thirdly, those in which the nature of the communication has been such as to prove that the being causing them must, agreeably to accompanying allegations, be some known acquaintance, friend, or relative of the inquiry.
Again, cases in which movements have been made of ponderable bodies of a nature to produce intellectual communications resembling those obtained, as above-mentioned, by sounds.
Although the apparatus by which these various proofs were attained with the greatest possible precaution and precision, modified them as to the manner, essentially all the evidence which I have obtained tending to the conclusions above mentioned, has likewise been substantially obtained by a great number of observers. Many who never sought any spiritual communications and have not been induced to enrol themselves as Spiritualists, will nevertheless not only affirm the existence of the sounds and movements, but also admit their inscrutability.
The book, the second part of which describes the afterlife as depicted by the communicators, passed through five editions. Reaction was quick to set in against its influence. The professors of Harvard University passed a resolution denouncing Hare and his insane adherence to a gigantic humbug. He was howled down by the American Association for the Advancement of Science when, in Washington in 1854, he tried to address members on the subject of Spiritualism. He finally paid for his convictions by resigning from his chair.
A. D. Ruggles, a professional Medium who often wrote in languages unknown to him, was one of the subjects with whom Hare experimented. Later Hare himself evidently became a Medium, as deduced from a letter he wrote to John Worth Edmonds, which contains this paragraph: Having latterly acquired the powers of a Medium in sufficient degree to interchange ideas with my Spirit friends, I am no longer under the necessity of defending media from the charge of falsehood and deception. It is now my own character only that can be in question. The revelations Hare believed he received from the otherworld he took at face value. There was no careful sifting or criticism, and the belief that they apparently came from spirits appears to have attested their credibility for Hare. This simplistic acceptance of Spiritualism diminished Hare's reputation, especially among his former colleagues, in his later years. He died in Philadelphia May 15, 1858.
