I have written often about the many instances of teleportation that my wife Sandra and I have experienced over the last 44 years; both in and out of the séance room. This subject does – of course – include inanimate objects such as ‘apports’ which appear in the room almost magically from ‘nowhere’ during both ectoplasmic-based and energy-based physical séances (by way of small ‘presents’ for us from the Spirit World who are working with us during sittings).
What readers may not know, however, is that – additionally – from Victorian times in the 1800’s, the Spirit World has used Teleportation to transport live animals, insects and even human beings – often over considerable distances – in a dramatic way (as I have personally witnessed). This shows that the technical knowledge of how to achieve this remarkable feat has existed in the Spirit World for over 150 years, although Science in our Earthly World has not yet been able to duplicate these amazing results!!
That is not to say that our earthly scientists have not tried to teleport large objects from one place to another. A particularly striking example of their efforts can be found in the almost legendary ‘Philadelphia Experiment’ that took place during the Second World War in the USA. Exact details of this wartime project, unfortunately, remain in the ‘Top Secret’ military files – but the gist of that attempt (and partial accidental success) as I understand it, is as follows:-
THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT
The Experiment was conducted by Dr. Franklin Reno (or Rinehart) as a military application of a Unified Field Theory. The theory, briefly, postulates the interrelated nature of the forces that comprise electromagnetic radiation and gravity. Through a special application of the theory, it was thought possible, with specialized equipment and sufficient energy, to bend light around an object in such a way as to render it essentially invisible to observers. The Navy considered this application of the theory to be of obvious military value (especially as the United States was engaged in World War II at the time) and both approved and sponsored the experiment. A navy destroyer escort, the USS Eldridge, was fitted with the required equipment at the naval yards in Philadelphia.
Testing began in summer 1943, and was successful to a limited degree. One test, on July 22nd, resulted in the Eldridge being rendered almost completely invisible, with some witnesses reporting a “greenish fog” in its place. However, crew members complained of severe nausea afterwards. Equipment was not properly recalibrated for this eventuality, but in spite of this, the experiment was performed again on October 28th. This time, Eldridge not only became almost entirely invisible to the naked eye, but actually vanished from the area in a flash of blue light. Simultaneously, the US naval base at Norfolk, Virginia, just over 600 km (375 miles) away, reported sighting the Eldridge offshore for several minutes, whereupon the Eldridge vanished from their sight and reappeared in Philadelphia, at the site it had originally occupied in an apparent case of accidental teleportation.
The physiological effects on the crew were profound. Almost all of the crew were violently ill. Some suffered from mental illness as a result of their experience; behavior consistent with schizophrenia is described in other accounts. Still other members were physically unaccounted for or supposedly vanished, and five of the crew were allegedly fused to the metal bulkhead or deck of the ship. Still others were said to fade in and out of sight. Horrified by these results, Navy officials immediately cancelled the experiment. All of the surviving crew involved were discharged; in some accounts, brainwashing techniques were employed in an attempt to make the remaining crew members lose their memories concerning the details of their experience.
One reason that the USA wanted to undertake this ambitious experiment was the rumour(not substantiated – but possibly true) that the Germans were undertaking similar bold experiments in invisibility for military purposes.
But I digress! The first reported instance of human teleportation in modern times occurred at a séance within what has come to be known as ‘Modern Spiritualism’, and is well documented, together with a number of evidential statements by reliable witnesses:-
THE CASE OF MRS AGNES NICHOL GUPPY
London Mediums Frank Herne and Charles Williams were holding a joint seance with a Circle of eight visitors at 61 Lambs Conduit Street in London on June 3rd 1871, when they heard the voices of the Spirits of John King and his daughter Katie. Katie agreed to bring any particular thing at the request of the sitters to the circle and a Mr Harrison asked her (half jokingly) to produce well-known Medium Mrs Guppy. Katie laughed and despite her father’s protests, insisted that she would comply, despite the fact that Mrs Guppy was a very large lady!!
The sitters were all laughing, when they heard a loud thump on the table just three minutes later, and several of them screamed. One of them lit a lamp and there in the middle of the table sat Mrs Guppy. She seemed to be in a deep trance and held a pen and an account book in her hand when she was precipitated into the room. Unfortunately, she was only half dressed, with her shoes off but – to save her modesty – her appearance was followed shortly afterwards by the apportation of respectable clothes in which she could travel home.
When the Medium was gently roused from her trance, she was a little perturbed. The last thing she remembered was sitting at home three miles away in Highbury, London. The sitters escorted her home, where an anxious friend awaited. Apparently, the two had been in Mrs Guppy’s room together when Mrs Guppy suddenly disappeared, leaving only a slight haze near the ceiling.
Catherine Berry, in ‘Experiences in Spiritualism’ (1876), writes of many strange happenings through Mrs Guppy’s mediumship. She was a very powerful physical medium in her own right. A white cat and a Maltese dog belonging to Mrs Guppy appeared in a seance in Berry’s house during a Guppy sitting. On another occasion, three ducks prepared for cooking were brought into the Circle in Mrs Guppy’s home. Showers of butterflies also descended from the ceiling.
TELEPORTATION OF ANIMALS IN THE FOY HOME
Shortly after Sandra and I were married, in the early 1980’s, we ran a Physical Circle at our then home in Harold Wood, Romford, Essex. On one occasion, after the séance, we discovered that our daughter’s cage for her pet hamster (although still locked) was empty. Eventually, after searching around the lounge on our hands and knees (with the help of our sitters), the hamster was found – happily wandering around the lounge.
The next week – after our home circle – we once again discovered that the hamster was yet again missing from his locked cage (which stood on a spare kitchen unit). This time, it did occur to us that Spirit might have had a hand in the hamster’s disappearance, and Sandra stood in the kitchen, loudly appealing for Spirit to “Bring back the hamster if they had it – so our daughter wouldn’t be upset at its loss”.
Moments later, Sandra saw a small patch of bright, shimmering light appear just in front of her on the kitchen unit – in full light – and noticed that this was beginning to form into the semi-translucent outline of a hamster. The outline intensified and became more solid until the hamster was back totally – completely solid and suffering no after effects from his ‘adventure’. The way the hamster came back was very reminiscent of the ‘teleportation scenes’ in the TV programme ‘Startrek’, when ‘Scotty beamed them up’!!
A couple of weeks later, after our circle sitting, Sandra locked our collie cross black dog ‘Ben’ out of the kitchen into the garden as she started to prepare our after-sitting snacks. Another sitter brought the glasses of water (from the circle) down into the kitchen to put near the sink. The kitchen was empty, but the rest of us suddenly heard a scream! The dog had been teleported from outside (through the solid wall or door) into the kitchen, with his wet nose on Sitter Lisa’s leg!!
The same thing happened to ‘Ben’ on several other occasions in his lifetime, and to the other two dogs (Jock and Brandy) who joined us after Ben passed to Spirit. This unusual phenomenon continued regularly in full light when our first cat (following all the dogs passing) and ‘the Spanish cats’ joined us, and still happens from time to time today. None of the dogs or cats has ever suffered any ill effects from this teleportation!!
ENERGY-BASED TELEPORTATION OF SCOLE SPIRIT VISITORS
We came to learn much more about the teleportation of members of our Spirit Team and various other Spirit Visitors (including ‘Angels’ and E.T’s) during the five years of ‘The Scole Experiment’ in the 1990’s. During sittings of the ‘Scole Group’, we regularly enjoyed the solid presence of Spirit people in the room with us – moving round; interacting with us; touching us; holding our hands and demonstrating their presence in a very physical way.
The feeling when these teleported ‘Spirit Friends’ were with us was amazing. The room was filled with tangible ‘LOVE’. That is the only way I can describe it. These visitors became so familiar to us that they felt just like family, and we loved them dearly. On occasions, we had as many as eight solid Spirit Visitors with us in the room at any one time!!
I must stress that this was not ‘Materialisation’ in the classic sense, with the Spirit personalities being dressed in ectoplasmic white robes and drapes. There was NO ectoplasm involved in any of our experimental work at Scole or elsewhere. The work was totally energy-based. The fact was that our Spirit Visitors were indeed usually quite solid, but by personal mind control (and by drawing on the reservoir of ‘creative energy’ supplied by the Spirit Team and stored in the glass dome), they were able to vary the density of their Spirit bodies (or Spiritual Essence aka ‘Soul’) from virtually invisible to totally (or partially) solid. They were invariably dressed in quite ‘normal’ clothes.
The ‘Spiritual Essence’ of each of our ‘Scole Spirit Visitors’ was firstly teleported through a ‘Portal’ which our Spirit Team had constructed in the ‘Experimental Room’ – whether that was at Scole or elsewhere during one of our ‘mobile’ demonstrations in other parts of the world. The Spirit Person concerned (depending on specific need) would then mentally increase the density of all (or just part) of their body.
Sometimes this could be just their head, shoulders and arms. To show themselves to us, they frequently held a spirit light in front of their face as they moved around the room. It was not unusual for a spirit person to show themselves totally in the glow from a ‘sheet’ of Spirit Light. Then again, they might just solidify a hand and arm.
A lady who attended one of our demonstrations in Reseda, California (Tricia Loar), had quite a shock when she was touched in a loving way by a Spirit hand. When this happened, our Spirit Team would frequently encourage the sitter to ‘touch back’. Tricia did this and felt up from the hand. She noted the shirt, and then the jacket sleeve of the male Spirit who was touching her. The arm was still fully animated and solid, but when she moved her hand up to the Spirit Person’s shoulder, she discovered that the rest of the person was not there in solid form (although she was assured by the Spirit Team that the whole of that Spirit Person was indeed present)!!
