130 Years of Parapsychology

This article was first published in Kindred Spirit magazine in February, 2012.

Matt Dennis – A gifted psychic medium taking part in The Shoreditch Experiments, conducted by Rupert Sheldrake and Graham Nicholls in 2009.

In his book The History of Spiritualism, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle describes how in January 1882 a meeting took place that would, a month later, lead to the founding of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR). The SPR would become the first organisation in the world dedicated to scientifically exploring psychic abilities and the question of survival after physical death. The 1880s was a time when scientific discoveries of all kinds were challenging many of the assumptions of religion. Materialism was and still is central to much of science, yet into this mix arose the Spiritualist movement. The early Spiritualists thought that their beliefs were a way for science and religion to be reconciled. In fact the British National Association of Spiritualists, founded in 1874, aligned itself with science from the beginning, one of their stated goals being ‘carrying out and publicising carefully documented scientific research into Spiritualist phenomena.’

It was from this atmosphere of support for science mixed with a sense that materialism was incomplete or too reductionist that the SPR and the field of psychical research as a whole arose.However, the evidence for these Spiritualist claims was not easily obtained and many of those investigated at the time turned out to be frauds, although some investigators considered a few of the mediums to be genuine. This kind of controversy has changed little over the years and ghosts, spirits and poltergeists divide researchers and the public alike. A case investigated by the SPR that has recently regained interest, due to new research and a major film in production, took place in Enfield in the 70s.

The Enfield Poltergeist Guy Lyon Playfair, a journalist and psychical researcher, who at the time had just returned from Brazil, offered to help another researcher named Morris Gross with the case. Sadly, Morris Gross passed away in 2007, but I was able to speak with Guy Lyon Playfair, who remains convinced to this day that the case was genuine and involved objects moving by themselves, including a large heavy armchair when no-one was around. He also witnessed his own notebook fly off the end of the bed while no-one was anywhere near it. Other witnesses attest to the many occurrences at the house, including a police woman who signed a statement to that effect. Just last year, more than 30 years after the case, Dr. Barrie Colvin analysed the rapping sounds recorded at the time inside the council house in Green Street, and concluded that the paranormal sounds had different qualities to normally-produced knocking sounds. Playfair described them as having a pattern more in keeping with earthquake sounds, as if arising from within the walls themselves. Playfair eventually documented his experiences in the book, This House is Haunted.

Cases like Enfield seem so improbable that many in the psychic field sought to distance themselves from these kinds of investigations. Today Guy Lyon Playfair and parapsychology have mostly moved towards other areas of research, such as telepathy.

Telepathy

Frederic Myers (by William Clarke Wontner)

It was Frederic Myers, one of the founders of the SPR who originally coined the term telepathy, from ‘tele’, meaning distant or far off, and ‘pathy’ meaning feeling or perception. Since Myers’ time, telepathy has gained controversial yet widespread attention for demonstrating consistent, repeatable results. Over many years, Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and psi researcher, has found rates of success with members of the public of between 53% and 65%, when only 25% would be expected by chance.

Sheldrake invited me to help him organise some experiments, which would involve finding a suitable venue and subjects to take part. We needed somewhere in which no signals from phones or other devices could be received to avoid any possibility of cheating. I located an underground basement in Shoreditch, London, where once the door was closed there was no reception. Just to be sure I also secretly placed a device in the basement room that stopped any signals coming in or out. Over the days of the trials we had a range of people, from those with claimed psychic abilities through to a journalist with no previous experience. They were all taken to the room and given a piece of paper with numbers representing close friends or members of their family. They would have to guess who was calling on a landline telephone placed in front of them by pressing the relevant number on the phone’s keypad. The phone rang at randomised times and a computerised system asked for their guess; they were then put through to their friend or relative for a minute to see if they were correct.

Even under such controlled conditions, the findings were consistent with Rupert Sheldrake’s other work. All of the data was recorded in a database and formed part of Sheldrake’s work as director of the PerrottWarrick project administered by Trinity College, Cambridge. If we look at the whole area of telepathy research we find overwhelming evidence, especially in a form of telepathy experiments known as Ganzfeld, whereby mild sensory deprivation is used to bring about heightened sensitivity in experiments. In his book Entangled Minds, Dean Radin, a psi researcher from the US, conducted a meta-analysis of all research using the Ganzfeld method; the analysis produced odds against the results being due to chance of 29 quintillion to 1.

Near Death Experiences Near death experiences (NDEs) are one area of parapsychology that has become prominent because medical approaches such as resuscitation now bring people back from the point of death far more than was the case in the past. Now we have a whole new form of evidence for the possibility of consciousness surviving physical death. For example, Janice Holden, an American expert on the subject has shown that in documented cases, some 92% are totally veridical, or objectively accurate.This conclusion is supported by my own observations through my exploration of out-of-body experiences (OBEs). I had had a few OBEs around the age of 12, which led me to read some parapsychological research by Janet Lee Mitchell, supporting the idea that they are real and objective. So I practised for six months until I felt a surge of energy rush through my body and I found myself floating around five feet over my physical body. This first experience didn’t last long, but it initiated a journey into the whole area of research into the out-of-body state.

I have now had hundreds of OBEs, and I’ve developed methods for inducing them. In 1998 I built a structure that suspended a participant above the ground, before taking them through a hypnotic induction designed to put them into an altered state or allow them to have an OBE. I have now refined this into other projects including a large-scale virtual reality installation at London’s Science Museum in 2004. By learning to have out-of-body perceptions, we can gain the most direct evidence that consciousness is more than a mechanistic illusion of the brain. This area for many parapsychologists is also the most challenging to the dominance of the reductionist paradigm that brain equals mind and that consciousness cannot function in other forms.

Towards the Future Parapsychology and the work of the SPR remains of importance for their focus on exploring ethereal experiences in a scientific way and suggesting that consciousness might be a missing element within physics, and even move us to the long sought-after ‘theory of everything.’

The SPR and organisations like it continue to probe these unexplained areas of human experience, often in the face of hostility. Yet beyond these philosophical aspects of research, parapsychology acts as an avenue for people like me, who have experienced the otherworldly and want to gain understanding in a rational and honest way. The final words goes to Dr. Richard Broughton, the SPR’s current President: ‘I believe we will eventually come to a unified understanding of human consciousness that bridges both the human experience of consciousness and the physical world, or the realm of physics.’

Belgian incident. UFO invasion in 1989-1990

The events of November 29, 1989 were confirmed by at least thirty different groups of witnesses and three separate groups of police officers. All witnesses described a large object flying at low altitude. The vessel was flat, triangular in shape, with lights below. This giant ship made no sound, slowly moving over the Belgian landscape.

A free exchange of information was organized as the Belgian population tracked this ship as it moved from the city of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany.

This is the first astounding sight to turn into a wave of UFO sightings over the next few months. In two cases, a pair of F-16 fighters pursued a mysterious object, but to no avail. On March 30, 1990, the military headquarters received a desperate call from the captain of the Belgian national police. He reported a giant triangle flying past him, and simultaneously two ground-based radar stations showed on their screens an object of unknown origin.

One of these bases was under NATO control near the city of Glons, located southeast of Brussels. After contacting other radar installations, they learned that at least four other stations also report the object on their screens. The object moved slowly along their screens, and could not send a transponder signal to identify itself.

Two F-16s received orders to intercept and identify this phenomenon, and one of the aircraft radars recorded the object. It appeared like a small diamond on the pilot’s screen. The pilot reported that just a few seconds after capturing the target, the object began to gain speed, quickly moving away from the radar zone. An hour-long chase followed, during which the F-16 two more times intercepted the signal of a strange ship and saw that it had disappeared from sight. The triangular ship seemed to play cat and mouse and finally got lost in the night lights of Brussels.

Fighter pilots reported that UFOs made maneuvers at speeds exceeding the capabilities of their equipment – the radar showed a sharp decrease in an unknown aircraft from 3 kilometers to 150 meters in 5 seconds! Unusual aircraft continued to appear for several months, and a triangular UFO was spotted more than 1,000 times, both day and night. The object fell low enough to be easily seen with the naked eye, and this event became one of the most high-profile stories in the Belgian media.

Another unusual phenomenon associated with the Belgian UFO was the inability to take a clear photo of it. Many observers kept their cameras ready and shot what they thought should be a clear image, but when the film showed up, the image was blurred,

This anomaly was examined by physics professor Auguste Meessen, who worked at Catholic University in Louvain. Meessen’s study gave the theory that infrared light should be the reason that almost all images were unclear.

To test his theory, he exposed the film to infrared radiation, and then photographed objects in ordinary light. The results were the same as in the photographs of a triangular UFO. One good image was finally shot in April 1990. This image showed the bottom of the ship’s hull with spotlights at three angles.

US President declassifies UFO materials

We are talking about the “Roswell incident” when in 1947 a balloon crashed in the USA, which was used to record sound waves from Soviet nuclear tests. The military hid the origin of the wreckage, which gave rise to many conspiracy theories.

US President Donald Trump promised to think about removing the secrecy stamp from materials about unidentified flying objects and the “Roswell incident.”

In an interview dedicated to Father’s Day, to his son Donald Trump Jr., which was broadcast on Thursday, the American leader said that many asked him a question about UFOs. 

“Millions of people want to go there and see. I won’t tell you that I know about it, but it’s very interesting.”

The son of a Republican asked him if he was prepared to declassify materials about UFOs and the “Roswell incident.” “I have to think about it,” Trump answered.

On July 4, 1947, the so-called Roswell incident. A balloon crashed on a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico, which was used to record sound waves from Soviet nuclear tests as part of the US Air Force’s secret Mogul project. The military hid the origin of the wreckage, which gave rise to many conspiracy theories widely circulated by local and then national media – in particular, about the extraterrestrial origin of the crashed “unidentified apparatus.”

At the end of April, the Pentagon published videos of the US Navy, which, as noted in a press release, captured “air events” that were described as “unidentified.” We are talking about shots taken by the crews of American military aircraft in November 2004 and January 2015. 

As noted in the message, the videos got into the network back in 2007 and 2017, but then the Ministry of Defense did not give their permission to publish them, although the authenticity of the records of the US Navy was subsequently recognized.

At the end of 2017, it became known that the Pentagon had a classified program for collecting and analyzing data on “anomalous aerospace threats.” In 2007-2012, $ 22 million was allocated for it. At first, the program was administered by the intelligence department of the US Department of Defense.

Not the only US politician announcing a UFO in Roswell

It is worth noting that Donald Trump is not the first American politician to promise to declassify UFO information during the pre-election period. During the 2016 campaign, a similar statement was made by Trump’s main rival, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel’s program, she was asked a similar question about UFOs. In response to him, the former first lady clarified that “now it is called differently.” 

“These are unidentified air phenomena, illegal armed groups, such is the new nomenclature,” Clinton said. 

Then the politician said that if she wins the election, all information about such phenomena will be declassified, if this does not affect the sphere of national security.

A similar promise in 2019 was made by another candidate from the Democratic Party – Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders. In an interview with TV presenter Joe Rogan, he noted that if he heads the state, he will definitely declassify UFO documents, as his wife constantly asks about this. 

Recall also that during the 1976 campaign, the future 39th president, Jimmy Carter, did not hesitate to say that in 1969 he witnessed the appearance of UFOs in the state of Georgia and even turned to the NICAP ufological organization with testimonies.

Aliens & UFO's

An armada of thousands of UFOs is gathering near the Earth?

After the significant launch of American astronauts to the ISS with the help of Elon Musk’s rocket, during the live broadcast of which, the cameras recorded the appearance of many UFOs, a similar incident happened during the broadcast of the recent launch of satellites on the SpaceX rocket live broadcast from the camera installed on the outer hull of the ISS. The camera was later disabled.

If you go to the channel of the live broadcast, there is a looped repetition of the previously filmed fragments of the video.

There is one more, little-known channel of live broadcasting from the ISS, which is not streaming video, where astronauts talk with the control center. The camera there is aimed at the control monitor for cameras installed on the ISS and usually it is just a blue screen or a window of the camera control program. Few people look at this camera…

The camera control program has two windows that broadcast video from the ISS in live mode and yesterday in one window, some amazing scenes were infold.

We don’t know for what reason, maybe the person in charge of the broadcast walked away or it was broadcast intentionally. However, it did not last very long and it was seen as someone closes and disables the windows of the broadcast, and then there was a blue screen and it just turned off completely.

Then the camera turned on the monitor, but already showed just a screen on the PC where you could see the control menu and nothing else.

What was on the video broadcast from the ISS camera?

A huge number of UFOs, lining up in tight rows and forming something like a “space network” in Earth’s orbit. 

It is clearly seen that the “network” is constantly replenished with new UFOs that cruise along the already lined UFOs, take their places or fly higher or lower.

These objects move at different speeds and along different trajectories. Most stand in even rows. 

These are not StarLink companions. First, Elon Musk did not launch so many satellites. Secondly, its satellites fly in a low orbit. Here you can see how the camera is moved to the right and left, observing precisely this UFO cluster.

Earth is not visible, which means that the camera is directed towards outer space. The question which arises is where are these UFOs. How far are they from our planet. Whether they are in high orbit in the upper layers of the Earth’s atmosphere, where the ISS flies, or are they grouped outside the Earth, at a small distance from it.

Thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions?

In one moment in the video, the approach of the camera to the UFO cluster begins to decrease and an entire incredible large-scale UFO fleet becomes almost visible, which continues to form something incomprehensible to us. New UFOs arrive and take their place in the system. Interestingly, in the center of this, there is something that they form but hidden – an object of enormous size.

Please note that the camera does not show what is in the center of the system. There the image is blurry, as if what is located there is specially hidden. Lurking seems to be aliens themselves. What are they doing? Judging by the form of what they are building, their task is nearing completion and they have to align the left edge of the formation. But what is in the center? a planet? a giant ship? 

And again, we have several options for the development of further events:

Pessimistic Scenario

1) Preparations are underway for the invasion and establishment of control over the Earth

2) Preparations are underway for making contact with earthly civilization

3) There is evacuation from planet Earth of everything important and valuable, samples of plants, animals and other species have been collected to create a kind of “repository of species”, an “Ark”, in anticipation of some kind of global cataclysm.

Optimistic Scenario

1) We will finally come into contact with a highly developed alien civilization, which will give us the wonders of medicine and technology and we will live happily ever after.

2) Yes, our planet is threatened by a cataclysm that will either destroy it or all life on it, but good aliens rushed through the expanses of the universe. to take us from our doomed planet and transport us to our new home, which will be a wonderful world for people.

It seems that the audience takes places in the auditorium after the third call. We are waiting for the show, we are just extras in it.
