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

1. THE TRUTH ABOUT THE PAST AND FULL FORM MATERIALIZATIONS
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!

EXPERIENCES AT KAI MUEGGES SEANCES AT THE 'WDC', NEAR SYDNEY, NOV. 2013 - by William Treurniet

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.

The apported stone that 'twinkled into matter' in front of Williams eyes



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.

NENSHA - THE ART OF THOUGHTOGRAPHY - UMBC Library Special Collections digitalized the Ted Serios Experiments

Ted during an attempt to get the Polaroid 'imprinted' by 'thought'
Within the highly interesting and discussed sector of spirit-photography there is a subgroup, that is called 'thoughtography'.
'Thoughtography' only had a handful of 'mediums' or facilitators, but some of them were strikingly persuasively investigated like the case of Masuaki Kiyota of Japan, where there is a long history of 'Nensha', the art of projecting thoughts onto photographical materials of all eras since the early days of photography.
An even more accessable case for us may be the amazing case of Ted Serios, who we have mentioned now several times here on articles about photo-anomalies of all kind!
Ted was extensively investigated by a team around Dr. Jule Eisenbud, who wrote a classic within modern parapsychological literature about the case. 
The experimental results in all its completion were now been digitalized at the UMBC Libraries Special Collections and can be accessed now by everybody!
The photos are presented within their experimental context with all 'blackies', 'whities' and negatives, partially displaying very well a development towards the 'positive' over different stages!  


One of the amazing rows of photos, that developed from a 'focus-drawing' towards better and better and more detailed images seemingly coming from Ted's memory of a visit at the Chicago historical museum
 After several years, Ted seemed to slowly loose his ability, maybe due to his worser and worser getting alcoholism, we do not know!
Fact is, that through Eisenbuds Study one amazingly important chapterwithin parapsychological research was being written!

Today a young dutch seems to own a very comparable ability, which he has demonstrated to several researchers and the media. His name in Robbert van der Broeke and Nancy Talbotts BLT Research Institute has extensively published about him!

FROM HEART TO QUANTUM LEVEL 2 - THE COSMOLOGY OF THE SPIRIT OPERATORS



With the years not only the physical phenomena coming with the mediumship, but also the verbal content gets more and more into the focus of interest of international sitters and researchers.
In fact, we much too often were more or less caught in argumentation about the survival-evidence the mediumship was producing and much too rarely looking into the cosmology the 'Chemists', the Spirit Scientists and Teachers were offering!
This does slowly change, mainly through the efforts of committed researchers like Tom Butler of the American Association Transcommunication, who take the time to transcribe what was being said to share it with a larger audience!
We of the FEG-Group are very thankful for all these efforts taken, because we believe the spirit operators really have something to share with us!

So what follows is taken from the last AtranscomJournal and we reproduce it here as a joint venture with the publishers Tom and Lisa Butler!

Excerpt from ATranscom News Journal Fall 2013 about Sittings of the FEG Spirit-Scientists and -Teachers in Reno, Nevada, through the Mediumship of Kai M..
Main Spirit Operator is the deceased professor for borderline areas of Psychology, Prof. Hans Bender (dec.1991)

Excerpt start

Spoken by Prof. Hans Bender via the mediumship of Kai Mügge of the Felix Experimental Group:

[An observation by a sitter: Hans appears to follow a path from knocks and touches, spirit lights, levitation (and movement) of objects, (apports), production of shapes visible over a luminous plaque, the production of ectoplasm, and finally, faces in ectoplasm. Not all of these milestones are met every time, but it seems clear that there is a progression of complexity and level of difficulty for Hans and the Chemists. (The Chemists are a group of entities that work behind Hans and who make the phenomena happen). Hans talks about erecting a field in which sitters and medium cooperate with the Chemists to enable physical phenomena. He speaks of psychic structures which are tenuous at first, but which become more substantial as the field strengthens. Interspersed with Hans’ comments transcribed below, are many demonstrations of physical phenomena which are in some part visible and/or audible.]

 Kai Mügge Session 2, 23 August 2013 Séance
When we talk about the spiritual land, it is important to know that there is not an afterlife existence. There is the space in which consciousness core fields are projecting onto different physical levels of existences. That means there is not an afterlife in the sense of a comparable existence to yours. There are a myriad of possibilities. You will enter a stage that is totally indescribable in human terms and by human imagination. There is survival, but the “afterlife” as you are calling it, is not a place.

The afterlife is a space you go into, at least for a short time. It is first, above the timeline. Second, it is a space where on a certain plane, and only for a certain time, all of us become one.
From then on, the free spirit will be projected into new universes.
That is why it is so important to expand your feeling of responsibility not only towards your own natural environment. Not only onto your own realm, because on that projectional path toward your physical existence, the consciousness field has produced uncountable effigies of you.

Every thought, every action, every being produces multidimensional effigies of you on that projectional path towards your momentary existence. This has to do with the question of why entities who have left the earth plane come back (as spirit communicators), and [the fact that] they don’t come back alone. They come back in a union of entities that are positive toward humankind. Positive in the first place because we come with our own interests. The ruthless behavior of humankind is not only affecting your own nature and your own existence down to a point. I don’t need to expand that. You all know how late it is. This ruthless and exploitative behavior towards every resource in nature, exploitative even towards your own kind not only destroys your values and your environment, it affects these parallel levels and dimensions that are connected with you as well.
On some of them, this history of human kind has created real monsters; negative potentials, huge potentials with which you are connected; which will re-affect you.

I don’t want to make you frightened. Every one of you is watching the news, and every one of you may ask yourself from time to time how could that happen? Why were we not able to control that? Because these huge potentials grow and grow, and yes, re-affect the dimensional planes they are connected to.
That is why I want to say that it is especially important that you consider your responsibility; that you comprehend that you are able to create reality.
Your consciousness was not given to you to be encased within your physical body.
Your consciousness reaches far out into the physical and onto the multidimensional [planes].
You can create and you can change and it is so important that you do because it is not only you who are affected. It is us as well.

That is what is coming toward you as an afterlife. [It is] only an intermediate stage from which a free spirit roams into the depth of the cosmos to swallow the knowledge of galaxies within seconds and carry on, on your creational path toward what we all call the creator.

Kai Mügge Session 3, 25 August 2013 Séance 
We will erect now something which is hard to explain in the terminology of the three dimensional land. It is something like a mesh-like force field. It will extend into the room to reach opposite sides of it and up to the ceiling.
From this mesh-like force field, compacted units (ectoplasmic structures) can act independently into the room.

Ladies and Gentlemen, you all have come with a company. None of you have come alone. Those you admire; there are those you do not even think of that came with you and that will be given the opportunity on behalf of that force field to regain a certain form of physicality; a substituted form of physicality for a certain time so that each of you will experience caresses and touches.
This does not happen without a purpose. That means each of you will be touched purposefully by someone out of the planes of spiritual energy who you carry around with you, at least to a certain degree.

And so, Ladies and Gentlemen, you will feed that force field with the physiological energy of your biological system. We are correlating the psychological, the psychical and the spiritual with the material, thats why the spiritual, the consciousness and the emotional, your psychology is not efficient. That is why we want you to additionally emanate positive mental energy, physical waves of sound by singing with the music, and yes, by fully participating over the course of the evening.

Yes, when the force field starts to extend, the objects will be affected the moment the force field reaches the little focus table (an area approx. 6 - 6,6 feet away from the hold and fully controlled medium through 2 persons).
The moment the objects are affected in rhythm to the music, then the grade of controllability is reached and we can proceed into the evening.

Later
Ladies and gentlemen, during our demonstrations, we are always talking about gifts; that precious gift we all have been given. This gift which transports you; this gift that transports us and that has the ability to transport us farther than you might think.
Our consciousness!
This consciousness is now encased in your body. This consciousness can be projected. To be specific, you all are projections of consciousness. Consciousness is the core field of everything. There is no reality without consciousness. You are all projections of consciousness onto a certain physical plane.

Your consciousness projects onto other planes as well. You are not aware of this at the moment. But let me tell you, your consciousness is not encaged in your body. Even on your plane, your consciousness can reach far out beyond your body’s borderlines. Always be aware of this.

Later 
“I” (Hans Bender) come into physical union [with Kai Muegge] to explain that the spiritual land is not a realm of afterlife existence. It is not a land of the deceased. It is a land of the living!
We talked about that before but I want to talk about that again today because I know that we have certain of you here that work or are part of associations, churches or societies …

When we came towards you in the midst of the eighteenth century, we wanted to give you the knowledge about bodily survival to expand your mind, to enable you to step backwards to see the bigger picture.
Consciousness was not given to you to walk alongside your flesh after years of living on the physical plane.
No, the gift of consciousness was given to you to play a responsible part in the huge creational plan; the huge creational path on which every step would lead you closer towards what you would call creator.
Unfortunately, those of you who could explore the spiritual realm, this unbelievable realm of all sorts of life, are mislead by institutions, educators that turned the spiritual land into a pure proving ground for survival.
Spiritualism is survivalism today. In reality today mediumistic efforts are only evaluated, when communication from deceased friends and relatives are happening.

Now let me tell you something. We know how much it can hurt to loose someone.
When I was like you, I also experienced loss. I know how that feels and hurts - but the point is that we cannot interfere with the creational plan!
That it is part of our existence like our birth!

Don’t waste what was given to you by staying with the grief.
Don’t waste your time:
Because do you know what the greatest pain of those who have transferred to the spiritual realms is? The greatest pain is seeing you in an unfinished grieving process; to see you not realizing that you are part of a bigger plan.
The pain becomes unbearable when we consider that those who have transferred step onto a plane on which they become actually reunited with you.
You can’t feel it, but it is actually the case because that which you call the spiritual realm is the location from which your existence is projected into the physical world.
When a relative or a friend is gone and arrives on that plane, he becomes reunited with you, and you become reunited with him.
You may not always feel it in your physical shell. Only sometimes you smell something or you see something and you feel that the one you have lost is actually very, very close to you.

The plane on which we exist lies above the timeline that organizes your lives in the physical. It tells you when to wake up and when to go to bed. When to eat and when to go to work. We live above that timeline. We live in a state of constant and eternal clarity, but what happens is that, those who have transferred to that plane should be projected into new existences of life. But can be bound by your grief.
Love is such a strong bond and can hold back those who have transferred, hold back those you love. Hold them back from their development when you bind them with your grief.

Take a step back and see the whole picture. Consciousness was not given to you to die away with your body after seventy or eighty years. Consciousness is the ultimate vehicle that transports you through the dimensions and enables you as a free spirit to enter the depths of the cosmos and to gain the knowledge of universes within seconds, so don’t hold back.
Don’t let your love hold back your loved ones.
Make your love let your loved ones go on.
This is my message.

Later
We are sometimes asked what makes a good medium and usually we like to answer two things. First, what is usually expected from a medium? It is, what the medium itself wants: To achieve knowledge from a higher organized plane of existence; maybe the plane you call the afterlife or the spiritual plane! The problem is that knowledge from a higher organized or a parallel-organized spiritual or physical plane can’t be described with the terminology of your plane.

That’s why we from such another organized plane cannot directly communicate with you. We must grade down [our energy] to do that, and can communicate only with you then.
That means every idea, every image you make previously, even the image of an afterlife - these are earthly images!!! These are earthly ideas.
They follow the laws of your psychical structure.
So you are hindering yourself to get higher information by projecting such earthly ideas into your mediumistic universe: You will only receive what you project!

 So, get rid of those ideas and open yourself freely and be ready to receive what valuable information might come from these planes and don’t follow institutionalized dogma as long as you want to evolve personally.
If you want to be part of an institutionalized church, yes then follow their dogma.
If you want to evolve, then open your mind.
Forget everything that was told to you.
Make yourself empty.
Make yourself a real vessel - for whatever might come from there - it will be of value.

So, now get rid of all these earthly ideas. They cannot fit a higher organized existence.

The second thing we like to answer is to say what the medium is actually learning when he encounters the cornucopia of creation that is in the different lands of existence.
He becomes so humble, humble towards creation, humble towards every creature of creation.

When people ask me what shall I be, a Spiritualist or a Buddhist, we tell him, it makes no matter if you are a Spiritualist or a Buddhist. Just be a good man. Just be a good person. Don’t be involved in politics or these different belief systems.
Only gain true compassion between men.

Make yourself a free spirit with true compassion because the true compassion gives you the key of happiness on the plane you are living on. True compassion; just be a good man. This is my message.

Later 
 Ladies and Gentlemen, I want to remind you that you are in position of the creational tool that can transport you far beyond your mind’s ability. Don’t waste your time seeking for things that were taken from you by natural occurrence. No, that makes no sense.
Honor what you have been given.
Honor your existence because you yourself will become creationists.

The consciousness field I am talking about will gather information from all its sources. Consciousness is not one-dimensional. No, it is the spring; it is the source that feeds many, many rivers. At the same time it collects information from all these paths it has created, and once the time is right, the informational density will have become so dense that from the spiritual, things will shift into the physical and then a new world will be born on your behalf!
With this, I want to say goodnight. Of course that raises many questions. I will send you into the night, dear friends.

Every one of you will become new creational hosts when the consciousness field has been compacted to a certain degree of density; information compacted so dense that it shifts itself into the physical.
A creation will occur then.
Every woman and every man is a universe.

Good night Ladies and Gentlemen.

WATER UNDER THE ROCKS ~ A Firsthand Account of the Historical U.S. Visit of The Felix Experimental Group of Physical Mediumship, August – September, 2013 by August Goforth

'CASSADAGA -

 A rural community of less than 900 people, Cassadaga Village is snuggled in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountain Range in Chautauqua County, New York—not far from Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes. Settled in 1848, its late summer countryside is lushly green with gentle hillsides, gnarly orchards and hushed dark forests of venerable age. Cassadaga is a Seneca word meaning “water under the rocks,” possibly so-named because during dry weather many of the local spring-fed streams vanish, settling into the gravel base while continuing to echo audibly but invisibly. Cassadaga is also practically a stone’s throw from Lily Dale, the famed Victorian community of Spiritualists—known formally as The Lily Dale Assembly. Deemed as the Home of Spiritualism in the United States, its prominence was established when, as an act of historical preservation, the childhood home of Kate and Margaret Fox was moved from Hydesville, New York to Lily Dale in 1916. The Fox sisters, who lived during the early to mid-1880’s, are accredited with sparking the Spiritualist Movement that swept the U.S. and then the world. The Fox cottage was destroyed by fire in 1955, yet a few precious artifacts were rescued and are now part of the community’s museum archives. 

Although endlessly fascinating in its spiritualistic charm, Lily Dale must be left for another day’s visit. Instead, we journey to TiOmimé, the home of Dr. Neal Rzepkowski in our peaceful hamlet, the scene of several sittings which, while boggling belief, deserve to have their stories heard. The reader is now asked to be still and draw the mind inward to a state of quiet receptivity, while refraining from prematurely judging the mysteries of the unknown and unseen—any more than one might doubt, without exploration, that one is hearing water under the rocks.'

With these words AUGUST GOFORTH opens his unique work about his experiences - and those of different other attendees he had interviewed - during three of the first US-Séances, held by the FEG Spirit Team, channeled by K.M., during his recent stay at locations at the east and west coast of America!

AUGUST GOFORTH is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice in New York City and also an intuitive-mental and psychophysical spirit medium. His pseudo he was given already as a child by Spirit-guides and -mentors, used by him today for the sake of his personal privacy and that of his therapy patients. His mediumistic abilities he besides neither uses for therapy sessions, nor does he work as a professional medium to give readings for others.

Even though he is well known among intetellectual contributors of a group of existentialists discussing one of the most important questions: will we survive - on the web.

“Read this book if you are a physician, therapist, psychiatrist, psychologist, or patient. 'THE RISEN' contains the fundamental wisdom and healing insights I was taught at Johns Hopkins that all healers should have, yet which are so desperately lacking in medical science and psychotherapy today. The turning point for me came when I dared myself to implement the lessons in this book in my own practice—and they worked!'
says Melvin L. Morse, MD, FAAP, author about the book, that made August famous among bibiophilists and will give him a special place within spiritual literature:

The Risen is a masterpiece on many different levels:
“The Risen...is written so well, it establishes what I can only say is a new 'Risen vernacular,' employing a sharp, daring and constantly interesting command of the English language. It is a book that every spiritual seeker should have on their shelf. It brings fresh insight and perspectives to eternal truth. It RESONATES—remember that word—to the core.” N. Riley Heagerty writes, a Historian of Spiritualism and Physical Mediumship, and author of 'The French Revelation — The Independent Voice Mediumship of Emily S. French.'

This guy August, who is besides a direct relative of Victor Hugo, did write a report that comes along like a short novel of some kind, so wise and powerful in its exploratorive intensity and rich writing style, intriguing in its details as dissipative towards certain forms of decent poetry...

And it describes three 2013 Materialization Seances he was attending hold at different locations with the German Physical Medium Kai M.....!

A REALLY FASCINATING READ....here THE REPORT -

Enjoy!

FROM HEART TO QUANTUM LEVEL - FEG-Seances in three States ended

A few nights ago another communion with the FEG spirit scientists and teachers ended our private mediumistic visit at friends in three different states of the US.

Two sessions in Springfield, New Jersey, crowned a row of exceptionally outstanding workshops and Seances, many of them with unique and special content and characteristics!
The summoning of Lakota elders spirits and the sessions dedication to their wisdom and philosophy, insights from the FEG spirit teachers reaching from heart- to quantum-level, the 'coming through', the words of a lakota elder in spirit and the following very well observable 'apportation' - in bright red light - of a totem for the medium, falling from the previously thoroughly checked bare hand (see photos and explanations), the genesis of ectoplasm (a sideproduct when 'spirit controls' crossbreed the informational/spiritual with a physical plane of reality) under different conditions, with for example spirit visitors mirroring within, identified by their relative sitters, outstanding multifaceted ectoplasmic photography by a professional photographer, ectoplasm under white light conditions and all the regular features the spirit orchestrators are usually presenting!

 The big difference though, besides the succesful sessions and the natural monuments we were visiting, were the beautiful people making, THE SITTERS, who gave us their trust and whom we hope we have not disappointed with their expectations - but in the first place THE HOSTS AND THE PEOPLE IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT:
Neal Rzepkowski and Kyle, Tom Butler, Lisa Butler, Janet Caywood, Howie Abraham and Christina Bohan Sachs who gave us everything, love, joy and company, Warfield Moose, Shilo Clifford, who gave us the most intensive spiritual experience of my life, August Goforth for love and support, Shannon Taggart for the wonderful photo-work and more and Gary and Roberto, who helped so much and giving! Robert Narholz for friendship and support, Rosemarie Pilkington for friendship, support and intellectual conversation, and even so Lisette Coly for her nice company and support! THANK YOU

PHOTO: In the Lakota pantheon the frog is the spirit gnâská, representing the powers of the 'sorcerers', the holy and medicin man. In a second meaning it represents all the SPIRITUAL POWERS OF THE UNIVERSE! The feather, which is engraved on his back means 'friendship to a lakota'! If you are befriending you give a feather to show that! We HAVE befriended much with a lakota medicin man who introduced us into an old ceremony that gave us the most intensive spiritual and physical 'mediumship' experience ever!

Shannon says: 'These FEG seances were unlike anything I have experienced before. They were completely fantastical and shocking, in the sense that they literally put the impossible right in front of us, to contemplate and to experience.

On August 15 & 17, 2013, I attended seances with Kai Muegge and the Felix Circle Spirit Scientists, hosted by Dr. Neal Rzepkowski in Cassadaga, New York.

Before the sittings, Kai allowed the room and the medium's cabinet to be searched and he was examined (unclothed) by a randomly chosen attendee. His wife Julia was seated as his control on the right, a randomly chosen attendee was placed to control on the left, each responsible for holding his hands and knees. We were told to hold onto one another's hands and maintain a chain to ensure nobody was moving around the room, including those in control of the medium.

Once the circle was seated and the lights were off, Kai spent time achieving a trance state by utilizing a holotropic breathing technique. Almost immediately we heard loud tapping on the ceiling. Rattles and tambourines that had been placed in the middle of the floor began making sound and moving around.

Gradually the phenomena turned into flying lights that flew all around the room.
Various touches were felt by most of us, including myself. Some felt caresses on their heads, others felt touches on their knees and some reported paw-like movements on their body.

Hans Bender, Kai's main guide, instructed Julia then to put out glow in the dark marbles which we saw move around and also flicker on and off.
A glow in the dark plate was also placed on the floor and we saw the formation of a hand appear over it.
A trumpet then was placed on the floor and it then flew round the room with great speed.

When it came time to work with the ectoplasm, Julia was instructed to use a red flashlight at various times. We saw large and small formations of ectoplasm, some of which had clear faces suspended within it.
At times it streamed all over the medium seemed to emerge from his ears, nose or mouth.
It changed shapes multiple times, going from a covering to piles.
A large pile then appeared on the floor under the chair.
Over time, a very clear hand appeared on top of the pile and moved around.

The circle was closed shortly after.
No ectoplasm remained anywhere in the cabinet or on the body of the medium.

The photos I took are astounding to me, as they allow a re-experience of this phenomena. The condition of the room was the most technically challenging situation I have ever photographed in.
So, I am very thankful we were able to make these photos and to document and show what objectively happened - phenomena we all saw with our own eyes, not clairvoyantly or hypnotically.

Photographer Shannon Taggart shoots intriguing and unique Images of Ectoplasm at Cassadaga Séances August 2013

Shannon Taggart
It was in 2001, when Shannon started a new project by photographing Lilydale, New York, the largest Spiritualist community in the world, where she had received a mediumistic message a few years before. She quickly immersed herself in the philosopy of spiritualism. She had readings, experienced healings, joined séances, attended a psychic college and sat in the mediums 'cabinet' - all with her camera!

She says she originally had expected to figure out during one summer the tricks of the spiritualist trade.
'Instead I peered in something truly mysterious. I stumbled into a hidden world, an abandoned system with a storied hystory that became a ressource and a inspiration for my own photographic theory and praxis."

How do you photograph the invisible?
"The answer came when I pushed my camera to the edge of its functionality and crossed the boundary of what is considered bad, wrong or unprofessional. Chance elements and the inherent imperfections of the photographic process (blur, abstraction, motion, flare) offer an agent for the immaterial.

Only a few of Shannons Images about Lilydale...
They all share unique moments, frozen in time...
...sometimes sharing private, even intimate moments!
The long exposure necessary to document seances are a catalyst, rendering the exchange between a veiled presence and a visible body. The resulting photographs are records that confirm that invisible correspondence."

Of course there is a spiritualistic tradition, in which the unseen becomes at least partially material, Physical Mediumship, and thats why Shannon and the FEG-Chairman and deep trance medium Kai M. had an early correspondence about coming together and somehow try to photograph, what Kais consciousness techniques and deep trance do unleash: the contact to a group of 'spirit scientists', that trigger a long row of physical effects, the most spectacular in red light and thus photographable...!

Another excerpt from Shannons project showing mediums within the state of Trance
Especially the intimacy of the Cabinet provided many fascinating opportunities to grab unique moments with the Camera
'...the inherent imperfections of the photographic process offer an agent for the immaterial!'
Different grades and tones of light always played a big role within the Séance Room. Gordon Garforth was one of the first Physical Mediums Shannon photographed. In green light she could document ectoplasmic extrusion from Gordons mouth.
Moreover Shannon documented another pretty rare phenomenon that is documented though through history and back into the era and mediumship of for example Daniel Dunglas Hume (Home), who demonstrated 'elongation' many times in front of high ranked observers and researchers, like William Crookes.
Today this is a very rare phenomenon. Judging from what the image shows, it seems as if the hand is emanating a substance-like material (ectoplasm?) that lets the hand unmistakenly grow in size. Fingers and palm 'elongate' so to speak...!
Finally this year in August Shannon sat with Kai M., close to Lilydale, in the State of New York, where the initial Spiritualism in the midst of the 18th century provided the strongest Physical Phenomena in History!

Hosted by Spiritual Minister and Physician Dr. Neal Rzepkowski, the séances in the tradition of the German Spiritists were held in his special private house, that provided a superb energy and space! In a joint venture with the spirit scientists Shannon was enabled to photograph the one of the most infamous artifacts in parapsychological field research and in spiritualism, which initial roots are closely connected to!

Several philosophical precursors like for example Emmanuel Swedenborg had visions about what happened a few years later in regards to (quote) 'a kind of "vapour" steaming from the pores of the body. It was a visible watery vapor and fell downward to the ground upon the carpet.' (quote end) Eugene A. D. Rochas compared the luminous vapor he saw arising from the breast of Elizabeth d'Esperance to the Milky Way. Paul Lecour likened the process to the condensation of a nebula. The same idea is suggested by Venzano's description of a mass of swirling vapor at the side of Eusapia Palladino. Gustav Geley described a dimly phosphorescent column that formed beside him, out of which a luminous hand, perfectly formed and of natural size, appeared and patted him several times on the forearm in a friendly way. Elizabeth Hope (Elizabeth D'Esperance) did write in her book that in the cabinet (quote) 'my first impression is of being covered with spider webs. It seemed that I could feel fine threads being drawn out of the pores of my skin. Then I feel that the air is filled with substance, and a kind of white and vaporous mass, quasi luminous, like the steam from a locomotive, is formed in front of the abdomen."

The Abdomen, the Solar Plexus, but also the mouth are alleged to provide a doorway or an entrance point from higher organised or parallely organised reality planes! The mouths rooftop through which in the FEG-Mediums case oral apports and ectoplasm are entering our realm of existence is already mentioned and described in thousands of years old vedic textes.
Until today Yogis, Vedic-Priests and so called 'Wondermen' (India) do facilitate these entrance points for Apport phenomena or for example the complete abscence of nourishment (entrance of the divine 'Mana').

Now featuring this article are the pictures, that were shot by Shannon during two Séances with the group of Spirit Personalities calling itself 'the Chemists, channeled by the FEG Medium Kai M., at the 15th and 17th of August 2013 in Cassadaga, New York, hosted by Dr. Neal Rzepkowski!

BE AWARE THAT THE ROOM IS SEARCHED AND THE MEDIUM IS EVEN STRIPSEARCHED PREVIOUSLY TO EVERY SITTING. DURING THE SCIENTIFIC TEST-SESSIONS BETWEEN 2010 AND 2013 WITH THE HELP OF A PHYSICIAN EVEN A FULL/STRIP BODY SEARCH WAS EXERCISED WITHOUT ANY RESULT!

SHANNON TAGGARTS FIRST SEANCE WITH THE FEG SPIRIT SCIENTISTS:

The first visible ectoplasm of the evening, face of the medium barely visible, but already in this early instance several faces of spirit visitors were mirroring within the substance
Now having the flashlight illuminating another area, the face of the medium becomes visible, additionally a head-form to the lower right. Slightly left from the ecto-head is an embedded face in that medal-looking like form. Another face is embedded left from mediums head
The face of the medium inmidst this diverse display of ectoplasmic substance


Highlighted is the ectoplasmic head form
Highlighted is one of the areas, in which a face, nearly photolike, is embedded

A few instances later the fog like substance is presenting the mediums head, extruding a foam-like mass from its mouth, very probably showing more faces
Even though in the first Seance the faces came not out clearly because of the long exposure time, this photo lets you have an idea at least: the face is slightly above the middle of the photo
Again the mediums face becomes barely visible behind huge amounts of substance filling the cabinet
Several movement patterns become visible within the photos.

Finally one of the ectoplasmic classics facilitated by the chemists: the ectoplasmic hand buidling from the extruded mass

 SEANCE 2
Shortly after the red light phase had begun, a huge mass fell from mediums mouth to the ground and builds up from there left to the medium and getting higher than its face
Slightly enlarged
Entranced Medium shows the interior of the dynamic multi-layered substance by 'opening' it...
...and drawing it over the whole upper body
A few instances later, the 'spirit visitor' can be displayed this time sharply and is identified - as in the Séance previously - by a sitter...
The embedded face lays directly in front of the mediums face, if you look closely you can see mediums bare forehead slightly above the faces 'frame'
Another instance, another face...
A strange ectoplasmic whirl starts to encircling the medium...
...is hardly being seen...
...and presents itself on the last photo of it in its whole mysteriousness

Like a huge chewing gum...
...the entranced medium is now manipulating...

...the huge mass
A few minutes later the whole medium drips of ectoplasm, seemingly coming from the mediums ears...
And then Shannons pictures show the gradual buidling of a handform from the collected 'material', laying between the mediums feet..

The heap starts to move and flex on the ground and to build up something...
...until the first fingers start to become visible...
...protruding more and more...
...until finally a complete hand moves over the mass and erects slightly to wave to the sitters...!

 For this outstanding photographic documentation we want to thank extensively Shannon Taggart and to wish her good luck with all her future activities in the strange world of the Seance Rooms of the World...!
