For five years a small group of amateur investigators gathered in a farmhouse cellar in Scole (UK) and held seances. The resulting phenomena included moving lights with no apparent source, "apports" (materializations) of odd items, the touches of unseen hands, disembodied voices, and eventually images recorded on photographic film and videotape. It's hard not to be skeptical when reading the early stages of this book - the claims sound wild, some of the "spirit communications" are rather puerile, and the experimental controls were, at first, minimal. Later, however, seasoned investigators of the paranormal were invited to observe the seances and take precautions against fraud. The phenomena persisted. The group even met in other locations, sometimes in other countries, and continued to produce results. While critics will go on crying fraud, it is hard to believe that such remarkably varied and carefully documented effects could have been fraudulently produced for so many years, in so...
The Scole Experimental Group (SEG) continued the significant psychical research into survival of bodily death, providing substantial evidence confirming results obtained by the pioneers of psychical research, such as Sir Oliver Lodge, Sir William Crookes, Cesare Lombroso, F.W.H. Myers, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Alfred Russell Wallace, Sir William Barrett, James Hyslop, Johann Zollner, Hereward Carrington, Rev. Charles Tweedale, Gustave Geley, Charles Richet, Robert Dale Owen--and many, many other famous investigators. Readers of the history of psychical research and spiritualism will immediately recognize that the Scole Experimental Group's sessions produced identical or similar manifestations to their famed predecessors. SEG's evidence is as compelling as any produced throughout the last 150 years and, when combined with that published by those writers previously mentioned (among many others, too numerous to cite here), the Scole evidence takes its place in PROVING survival of bodily...
I read "The Scole Experiment" a few months ago, and I absolutely loved it!
This is a book about the psychical journey taken by 5 inexperienced (at least at first) investigators of the paranormal. During a period of several years (I believe it was about 7), these people held "seances" in a farmhouse in Scole, and what they experienced was truly extraordinary!
Although it's quite easy to brush off such experiences as "just made up", this group actually invited skeptics and believers alike to witness what was happening - & they all stated that it could not be explained away, it was REAL.
What did they experience? Well, there were several apports of amazingly old & beautiful items, the brushing of hands, voices on tape recorders, and pictures on video.
I must say that this group did an amazing job of ensuring that safegaurds were put in place so that no one could accuse them of tampering with "the evidence" - they actually went overboard (in...
