You may have heard about media coverage of Wright Brother’s flight and how it took three years before Scientific American stopped trying to debunk it. You may already know about early 20th Century Patent Office Official who declared ‘everything that could be discovered was discovered’. You may even know about Paris Academy of Sciences official who throttled presenter of phonograph claiming he was a ventriloquist. These things are funny in a way, but they are not unusual. Unfortunately you are going to have to think if you read this book. You will have to ask yourself how stupid we have been to allow a lot of lies to pass for truth.
Sir William Crookes – Generalist Deemed Weird:
“The Chemist Sir William Crookes Proved Survival With Repeatable Experiments Under Laboratory Conditions - by Michael Roll
Adrian Berry, science correspondent of The Daily Telegraph, says that few subjects more infuriate scientists than claims of paranormal phenomena, because if confirmed, "the whole fabric of science would be threatened."
This statement is not correct because nothing can threaten science - Latin name for seeking after knowledge. The only thing that is threatened by uncomfortable discoveries in physics are pseudo-scientists. Their reputations will be destroyed immediately ordinary people find out that Sir William Crookes proved that we all survive death of our physical bodies with repeatable experiments under laboratory conditions.
Following this revolutionary discovery in 1874 this outstanding British scientist was knighted, made President of Royal Society, and King Edward VII gave him highest decoration in land - The Order of Merit.
Sir William Crookes was able to wipe floor with contemporary professional wreckers who dared to attack him. The following is how he dealt with Professor W.B. Carpenter, a biologist from London University, who made a very unfair and anonymous attack upon him in 'Quarterly Review'. Carpenter had been unfortunate enough to describe Crookes as "a specialist of specialists".
‘My greatest crime (he wrote in his reply to Carpenter's diatribe in 'Quarterly Journal of Science') seems to be that I am a 'specialist of specialists'. It is indeed news to me that I have confined my attention only to one special subject. Will my reviewer kindly say what that subject is? Is it General Chemistry, whose chronicler I have been since commencement of Chemical News in 1859? Is it Thallium, about which public have probably heard as much as they care for? Is it Chemical Analysis, in which my recently published Select Methods are result of twelve years work?
Is it disinfection and 'Prevention and Cure of Cattle Plague', my published report on which may be said to have popularized Carbolic Acid?
Is it Photography, on theory and practice of which my papers have been very numerous? Is it Metallurgy of Gold and Silver, in which my discovery of value of Sodium in amalgamation process in now largely used in Australia, California and South America?
Is it Physical Optics, in which department I have space only to refer to papers of some Phenomena of Polarized Light, published before I was twenty one; to my detailed description of Spectroscope and labours with this instrument, when it was almost unknown in England; to my papers on Solar and Terrestrial Spectra; to my examination of Optical Phenomena of Opals, and construction of Spectrum Microscope; to my papers on Luminous Intensity of Light; and my description of my Polarization Photometer?
Or is it my speciality Astronomy and Meteorology, in as much as I was for twelve months at Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford, where, in addition to my principal employment of arranging meteorological department, I divided my leisure between Homer and Mathematics at Magdelen Hall, Planet-hunting and transit tracking with Mr. Pogson, now Principal of Madras Observatory, and celestial photography with magnificent heliometer attached to Observatory? My photographs of Moon, taken in 1855, at Mr. Hartnup's Observatory, Liverpool, were for years best extant, and I was honoured by a money grant from Royal Society to carry out further work in connection with them. These facts, together with my trip to Oran last year, as one of Government Eclipse Expedition, and invitation recently received to visit Ceylon for same purpose, would almost seem to show that Astronomy was my speciality. In truth, few scientific people are less open to charge of being a 'specialist of specialists'.’
There is a vast conspiracy to make sure exciting scientific discoveries never come to attention of general public. Genuine scientists are banned from supporting work of Sir William Crookes in press and on every radio and television programme that is made on so-called paranormal. People are only allowed access to views of "experts" who can be relied upon to play Establishment game - suppress anything that could embarrass orthodox scientists who hold reins of power.
Nobody is allowed to balance opinions and conclusions of these self-styled experts on "paranormal". These professional wreckers have unrestricted access to all media outlets, while my colleagues and I have been refused permission to write and broadcast by almost every editor and producer that we have approached. The British people are not allowed to hear secular scientific case for survival after death in this "free" country of ours!
Recent discoveries in subatomic physics confirm that Sir William Crookes was correct in his conclusions, and that he was not a liar, cheat, crank, a fraud or a sex maniac as we have been criminally led to believe. His only "crime" was to tell truth.” (1)
Do we need to allow matter in our bodies dictate relationship we have with air around us as well as earth that this matter sends photonic pulses of energy from to effect what we call gravity? Needless to say 'levitation' and 'people who can fly' or walk through walls like book Marcus Bach's son Richard wrote (called 'Illusions') do document many fantastic 'possibilities' in fiction; aren't normal. Does this ability entitle one to be named a saint? Theresa of Avila and St. John of Cross are interesting studies in how to become a saint. Let's read a little about a man who was able to do this in front of scientist/investigators who knew ways of 'mind-fogging' or projected hallucinations, from Reader's Digest:
"Home in AIR
The medium Daniel Dunglas Home was observed to levitate numerous times over a period of 40 years and was never discovered in any fraud. The first account of his unusual ability was given F. L. Burr, editor of 'Hartford Times':
‘Suddenly, without any expectation on part of company (or on Home's part - he was 19 years old, and this was his first, involuntary experience of levitation) Home was taken up in air. I had hold of his hand at time and I felt his feet - they were lifted a foot from floor! He palpitated from head to foot with contending emotions of joy and fear which choked his utterances. Again and again he was taken from floor, and third time he was taken to ceiling of apartment (the Connecticut home of Ward Cheney, a silk manufacturer), with which his hands and feet came into gentle contact.’
