Last week's report

COMMENTARY: SCIENCE v THEOLOGY: in any inconsistency which one prevails? The most important question in science and religion ever! Lou Bondi, one of Europe's most professional television interviewers, inadvertently raised the most critical issue of 'science and religion' during a television interview he had with afterlife researchers, including myself - see next item below. But what is vitally crucial - which became imputed rather than expressly stated is: in an inconsistency between science and religion which one prevails? A Catholic theologian imputed that he unqualifiedly accepts 'faith' and in any inconsistency between faith and science - this Catholic priest implied in his replies that faith prevails over science!

Galileo showed four centuries ago that if there is an inconsistency between science and theology, inevitably, science prevails over theology. Some Catholics - but not all, and not all Christians - avoid answering the above question.

Science is objective and repeatable and, keeping variables constant, yields the SAME results over time and space. But theology is SUBJECTIVE (one needs the subjectivity of 'FAITH') and faith is inexorably subject to COMPLETE INVALIDATION. No one on earth can change that!

All universities accept this most important premise. Therefore, when we conduct scientific afterlife research and we repeatedly get the same results, that is telling theology that what is inconsistent with our results (ie faith) is WRONG! 'Faith' in fact can never override science.

What our scientific results are telling the Vatican is to review its perception of genuine spirit contact and materializations- and to accept that some of the traditional theology is wrong. Some conservative stubborn senior priests are stubbornly adhering to fantasy rather than fact! The Bible says absolutely nothing about life when we cross over - only that there is heaven, hell and for Catholics purgatory. Traditional theology knows absolutely nothing about the specific conditions of people when they cross over. 'Spiritual' science now does..

Of course, there are advanced Christians who embrace 'spiritual science' and accept that spirit contact done with responsibility and due diligence will benefit mankind. They know that science now conforms some of their most fundamental beliefs: that there is an afterlife, there are different graded realms and that we are all accountable.

Robin Foy,one of the mediums at the centre of the fabulous Scole experiments writes:

" Not everybody is aware that Physical Mediumship now takes place in two totally different ways. The traditional view is that physical phenomena can only be presented by spirit helpers using the controversial substance known as 'ectoplasm'. This method has been used by Physical Mediums and their guides and helpers since 1848. Generally, it involves just one physical medium, who is usually in deep trance throughout the proceedings. The medium usually sits in a 'cabinet' throughout to concentrate the power (this is a small enclosure of aproximately of the same or slightly larger size as a Punch and Judy man's tent by the seaside). Most physical mediums operate in total darkness, or with the use of a dim red light for illumination, although one of our members is currently experimenting with a green light.
The 'ectoplasm' is exuded from the physical medium's body (from any or all of the body's natural orifices) and can be moulded by the spirit guides and helpers to form a 'materialisation' of a spirit person, which can often be positively identified by friends and relatives of the spirit person. For manipulaion of objects such as a trumpet (a megaphone like object used for amplification of direct-voice communication from spirit) in the seance room, an ectoplasmic rod is used by the spirit people. In every case, the ectoplasm remains connected to the medium whilst phenomena takes place. It is this ectoplasmic connection which makes the whole proceedings physically dangerous for the physical medium. If a sitter does something silly, like switching on an electric light in the middle of a seance, the ectoplasm shoots back into the body of the medium at an alarmingly fast rate; causing (at the best) burns to the medium's body and (at the worst) occasionally internal wounds that have, on occasion, led directly to the death or serious injury of the medium. Such was the case with Helen Duncan and Alec Harris, both famous materialisation mediums. Consequently, in all sittings where physical mediumship is conducted through an ectoplasmic-based system, careful precautions have to be observed for the safety of the medium. The ectoplasmic-based physical medium often takes many years to develop their mediumship fully.

The second, and more modern method of producing physical phenomena is by way of an energy-based procedure. This form of physical phenomena was largely pioneered by the Spirit Team working with the Scole Experimental Group in the 1990's. There may indeed be one or more mediums in a group where this method is being used. They may, or may not necessarily be used in deep trance; sometimes, the group are not even aware of who the medium or mediums might be! The spiritual energies of all the group members are blended and involved in the energy-based process. Whilst groups of this sort should start out in total darkness, the spirit team working with a particular group often bring their own spirit-lighting fairly soon in the development of the phenomena to provide adequate illumination.
The energy that is used by the spirit team is a blend of three different types of energy which, when mixed together, provides one creative energy, which can then be used by the spirit team or individual spirit persons in a physical way to demonstrate the phenomena which is produced.

The 3 forms of energy are:
1) Spiritual energy taken from all the sitters in the group.
2) Spirit energy brought by the spirit team from the spirit world, especially for the purposes of
producing the 'creative energy' needed at a particular sitting.
3) Colums or 'pillars' of natural earth energy which exists in certain geographical locations
around the world. By their work, groups, sitting for physical phenomena can attract one of
these columns of energy to them for the work, or even create a new column.
There are a number of advantages to working in this new way with energy, although I should point out that neither method of working is better than, or superior to the other. These advantages include:
1) Phenomena can develop quicker in the energy way. Sometimes in months, rather than in years.
2) There is no danger whatsoever to mediums or sitters if somebody does something stupid during an energy-based sitting. The phenomena will simply stop,
3) The energy-based method is more versatile in that more types of phenomena can be developed in this way. At Scole, we counted around 180 different types of phenomena that
were developed during the 5-year history of the Scole Experimental Group.

VICTOR AND WENDY ON EUROPEAN TELEVISION: THE LOU 'BONDI PLUS' AFTERLIFE SHOW television program. Lou Bondi's questions were absolutely brilliant – a most professional world class interviewer. The program where we were interviewed about out afterlife work was shown on a European television station last Monday. I will be including the video link as soon as it becomes available. But very disappointing was a Catholic theologian, Fr Rene Camilleri, who stated without understanding what materialization really is, that there had to be ‘fraud’ in the materializations of David Thompson and that spirit contact is wrong. All this is nineteenth century theology and this priest has not updated his theology. The great Professor Jung stated that calling everything you don’t understand fraud "is the last refuge of the ignorant and the uninformed". When someone accuses us of fraud, the attacker has to state where, when, how the fraud took place. But this Fr Rene did not - and not one critic ever has been able to state where, when and how fraud could have taken place with our materializations. Time for highly conservative theologians and the Catholic Church to understand that spirit contact, mediumship and materializations are real and that the same psychic experiences which inspired every major religion are happening today. Genuine contact is still being made with afterlife entities and very successful reunions are being made with loved one in the spirit world. Millions of Christians - and others now accept spirit contact judged by the millions who over the years have attended mediumship meetings, some of them Catholic mediums such as John Edward.

One group of intellectually and theologically advanced Christians who are not afraid to embrace psychic research produces the online magazine, The Ground of Faith. Directed towards practicing Christians it explores how 150 years of disciplined psychic research affirm some spiritual foundations of Christianity. In this month's issue the editor writes:
"If we came out from behind our ramparts, we would find that psychic research affirms the reality of an afterlife, the reality of Spirit, the reality of healing miracles, the reality of inspiration, the importance of a life lived in the Spirit, the reality of love at the basis of all thing s ... and much more. We might be the more able to refrain from judging the beliefs of others, and the more able to to agree with John Wesley in claiming that the grace and love of God is available to all humanity, regardless of their beliefs. We would see open minded science as our friend and not our enemy."
Have a look at the February issue:
Have a look at previous articles

In a similar vein Michael Tymn, author of an excellent new book about the most convincing cases in psychic/spiritual research writes:
"As a life-long Christian- although by no means an orthodox one-I have been able to advance from the blind faith asked of believers by church leaders to true faith, or conviction, based on my studies of these cases and others. There is much I don't understand and will never understand in this lifetime, but the cases summarized in this book provide a peace of mind in my old age that religion could not. Moreover, so many of the confusing and perplexing things I was taught as a young catholic now make perfect sense."

Many people are aware that well known mediums George Anderson, and John Edward are practicing Catholics who say they recite the rosary before giving readings. Both of them were tested and found to be highly accurate -see HBO video Part 3 (10 mins)
Part 4 (10 mins)
This week I received a letter from Patricia who says of herself "Let us say generally I am a skeptic. You would have to impress me pretty darn good to even get me to give a medium the time of day much less money or my belief." Patricia goes on to describe an incredibly accurate reading that she had with George Anderson. She concludes " George is a gentle soft spoken man who is self effacing...even after telling me he'd keep me in his prayers he then said "could you do the same for me?" Read Patricia's testimony.

CATHOLIC MONSIGNOR PRIEST COMES BACK FROM THE DEAD - to tell us all that he misled his parishoners about the afterlife. Most highly credible Mons. Hugh Benson's story is a lesson to all Catholic priests and to the Vatican about what really happens to us when we cross over. Mons Besnon came through medium Anthony Borgia -four books were produced. Go to http://www.spiritualbooks.tk/ and click on all of Anthony Borgia's books - all information was transmitted by Mons Hugh Benson from the afterlife. Judge for yourself!

DIRECTLY FROM THE AFTERLIFE DIMENSION: “Materialism has raised its proud head in a denial of all spiritual truths; its gospel has been triumphant, but its results were a world catastrophe accompanied by needless bloodshed, misery, heart-burnings, weariness, sickness of mind, despair, desolation, chaos and confusion. … We from the afterlife seek to drive out misery, fear and desperation. We seek to bring the light of simple truth and reason, the voice of inspiration, of revelation, the wisdom of the spirit that has been crushed, stifled and repressed for too long. We seek to bring the spirit back into its proper perspective, so that spiritual powers shall be made manifest and all the faults of a crude materialism be exposed so that for ever they may be discarded. … We seek to abolish the fear and the terror of death, so that all may realize that it has its place in the eternal scheme of life. We seek to abolish all the obstacles that stand between the two states of existence, that man may find his soul and in finding his soul find himself. …” SB

EVP Stories from the AA-EVP Big Circle Part 2


With the help & support of Rob Smith (left, evp/itc australia), Dale Hewey & Donni Hakanson (all Moderators of the forum), Ingrid Irwin has set up a new AVP forum in December 2008. She writes: " We are a small but dedicated group to the research & development of evp/itc here in Australia and worldwide, and hope we may be joined by fellow 'aussies' & 'kiwis' that have a similar interest. We felt it was time for Australasia to 'stand on its own two feet' & begin a forum to help us raise awareness of Transcommunications." Read more... http://austevp.com/

In this week's episode
Dr Adrian Klein and Dr Robert Neil Boyd PhD introduce us to some fascinating research that shows us how quantum physics is questioning the reductionist scientific view of the brain. They write:" As our readers already know, our approach to living systems is vastly transcending vitalist doctrines, which are limited to postulating a vital principle, as distinct from biochemical reactions. According to J.White, references to various bioenergy field control-mechanisms, can be found in 97 different cultures." Read this week's mind stretching article "Interactions Between the Brain, the Biofields, and the Physical".

CAPTAIN ROBERT SNOW INVESTIGATES REINCARNATION One of the most fascinating cases of alleged reincarnation (or spirit possession) involves a detective who undertook a regression on a dare and became obsessed with the life of a 19th century painter.


Thanks to Jim Smith for posting this gem:
" I agree that by the standards of any other area of science that remote viewing is proven, but begs the question: do we need higher standards of evidence when we study the paranormal? I think we do. (...) if I said that a UFO had just landed, you'd probably want a lot more evidence. Because remote viewing is such an outlandish claim that will revolutionize [sic] the world, we need overwhelming evidence before we draw any conclusions. Right now we don't have that evidence."
Richard Wiseman Daily Mail, January 28, 2008, pp 28-29 [24]

'GOD': again I was asked this week do I believe in 'God'?

Victor: for years I have been stating that one has to define 'God.' I sent scientists my information how I empirically arrived at the existence of God. I stated that empirical observation shows that there is 'intelligent cause-effect' relationship in the universe and everywhere else, even here on planet earth there is order. Another very important question concerning the universe, where did gravity come from? Was it the 'intelligent effect' to an 'intelligent cause'? Again I ask scientists to explain why 'effect' to 'cause' always shows order, intelligence and perfect design. Highly credible afterlife teachers call God - the power that control the laws of the universe.
Religious writers of thousands of years ago have their own definitions of God. Technically, the Catholic 'God' is different to other Christians' and other religions' definition of God. But there cannot be an afterlife if there were not the Universial Power some empiricists call 'God'.

ON CROSSING OVER: QUESTION: Do all those who cross-over experience ‘conscious transition’?

Victor: From my research, most of those who cross over experience a conscious transition. On crossing over, we have been credibly informed, we are met by our loved ones. But there are exceptions. If, for example, a person was very sick before the crossing over or had been given large doses of pharmaceutical drugs and was mostly unconscious or semi conscious, that person would be taken to a place of rest and care and looked after by very special helpers.

OBJECTION OVERRULED! No 6. "If you can prove the afterlife why don’t you take on that skeptic guy and get one million dollars?”

Victor: First, that closed minded skeptic does NOT have a genuine offer. I investigated his offer and am convinced it is the most fraudulent offer in paranormal history. He has been quoted by Professor Dennis Rawlings as saying “I will always have a way out ... " (of paying the alleged million dollars). There is no proof that he does have a million dollars- the current financial crisis would have hit him badly and he REFUSES to provide a sworn statement subject to at least five years jail that he has the money (to match my own sworn statement in respect of my million dollar challenge). Secondly I had a number of top mediums who tried to take this guy on, but as soon as he realizes that the applicant is a genuine medium, these challengers never hear from him again. In all the years of his so-called challenge he has never allowed even one person to go beyond his subjective so-called preliminary test.

And remember, this flamboyant skeptic from Florida has NOT tried to meet my one million dollar challenge and rebut the irrefutable hard core objective and repeatable evidence for the afterlife.

Dr. Robert Hare was a professor of chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania as well as a renowned inventor. Like most of the other scholars and scientists investigating mediumship, Hare began as a disbeliever and expected to debunk mediumship. But he was in for a big surprise. Read more...

ANIMAL CRUELTY: we have a responsibility not only to planet earth, but to all creatures in it. Animal cruelty is unnecessary, it is hurtful and painful and very unspiritual. Animals feel pain as much as we do. So do whatever you can to educate others about the unnecessary cruelty to animals in factory farming and in laboratories testing products for commercial use. Animal cruelty, pain and suffering are totally unnecessary: Those who inflict pain onto animals would be lowering their own spiritual vibrations and will be creating a spiritual debt which one day has to be paid. On the other hand those who lovingly care for abandoned and unwanted animals and rescue wildlife like this little koala on the right overcome by 45C (110F) degree heat in Adelaide South Australia are raising their vibrations sky high. Read uplifting story.

“The mind has enormous power in the afterlife. It can create matter there and can cause the body to travel at the speed of thought, e.g. you imagine you are at any place in the world and you are there instantly.
• Some people on earth have a much better transition to the afterlife than others. The more knowledge we have about the afterlife, the easier the transition. It also helps if you are able to control your mind, think positively and concentrate on one thing at a time.
• Some people get stuck “between the two worlds.” Because they still feel themselves solid and do not accept that they have actually died.
• Some are afraid of going to the light.
• Many get into mental confusion and could get lost for decades and even for thousands of years.” Click on chapter 29 WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE.

DEEP TRANCE MEDIUMSHIP: Wendy and I and others attended the session last Sunday night at Crows Nest, in Sydney to hear an afterlife intelligence speak and to answer a number of questions. William, the spirit friend of the medium David Thompson, takes over the medium’s voice box and we hear William’s voice as he had when he was on earth, NOT the medium’s voice. Among other things, William stated that we should listen to our ‘intuition’. He spoke about this for a relatively long time given the circumstances. My question to William (after exchanging the usual greetings) was, words to the effect “You talked at length about intuition. Does intuition override our free will? For example, if we think our intuition is not morally, spiritual or ethically right, ought we not exercise our free will to reject that intuition?” William’s answer was very briefly that all true intuition is spiritual and therefore we are safe when we listen to it. After the meeting, a short discussion took place with a couple of people interested in the topic. I raised the point that spirit "attachments" could give us promptings that might feel like intuition. So one would have to to be extremely careful to assess whether the intuition is in our spiritual interests and if not we ought not listen to the promptings. Any comments?

There's an interesting discussion of this question on our facebook forum. I liked the advice of one of our consistent contributors, Jim Smith who wrote:

" I would advise you to listen to what he says and ask him questions about what he sees. Ask him if the spirits are saying anything. You might ask him to ask the spirit a question like their name or what they want and then ask him how the spirit answered.

Be interested and positive about it. Make sure you tell him that you and other people don't see the spirits, but otherwise I wouldn't make it seem special to him. You don't want to discourage him by being negative or encourage him to make things up by making it too important or by paying too much attention to it.

At some point you will have to make sure he understands if he tells other people that he is seeing spirits they might not believe it and they might make fun of him, so he will have to learn with whom and when he can talk about the spirits." Join the discussion.

A practice from ancient Egypt is mummification – mummifying the body. Abu, an advanced entity from Ancient Egypt, explains that mummification was not an attempt to preserve the physical body for re-use. Instead, he claims, it was based on the observation that everyone has an astral body which is the counterpart of the physical body. Where they went wrong, he says, is the speculation that the astral body would only continue to exist as long as the physical body was preserved.

POPE CRITICISED FOR ALLOWING HOLOCAUST DENIERS BACK IN THE CHURCH: The Pope spoke out against gays in the Church. The Pope criticized the Church of England claiming it is not the real Church. The Pope now re-admits several senior conservative Bishops whose writings and speaking show they are against the Jews. Many critics see this Pope making huge blunders in his administration.

AN ANOTHER BRILLIANT AFTERLIFE WEBSITE: very important afterlife books, videos, articles etc. Try it:


1) We had lots of lovely feedback from subscribers taking advantage of the free book offer. It has been really lovely to read such positive and encouraging letters. Many people wrote that they wanted to have copies of the book to hand to friends or loved ones.

2) David wrote suggesting that we set the links in the report to open up in a new web browser. We're trying it this week- let us know if you prefer it.

3) Dr Julie Beischel, PhD Director of Research and Mark Boccuzzi Director of Operations at the Windbridge Institute for Applied Research in Human Potential wrote a detailed letter about funding for paranormal research, a subject dear to the hearts of many of our readers. They write:

The reality is that there is very, very, VERY little funding available to perform parapsychological research. This in turn also makes it difficult to “waste” funding on systematic replication studies that would solidify the reality of the phenomena being studied. Researchers and funding organizations alike prefer to use the limited resources to investigate new questions or use new methods. This, however, prevents studies from being replicated in order to increase the amount of evidence for any particular phenomenon.

This is such an important issue that we have printed the letter in full. Read more....

BEQUESTS: Now more than ever before professional accredited and registered afterlife researchers are struggling for funding so that they can help the world understand that there is an afterlife. After you have provided for your family in your will consider making a bequest which will bring about ‘LIGHT’ on a global level after you’ve gone. So far, we can highly recommend the following legally registered organizations who will use your funding to benefit humanity:

* Mark Macy's World ITC- American based research on ITC
* The Forever Family Foundation
* Sonia Rinaldi's IPATI- Brazilian based research on ITC
* The American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena
* The Windbridge Institute for applied research
* Rhine Research Centre- Institute for Parapsychology
In the future we will include other registered organizations which are doing afterlife research. Please email for details.

From previous weeks - it's coming to an end very soon : 'HONORARY’ NOBEL PRIZE FOR PARANORMAL RESEARCH: Sadly as yet there is no category of paranormal research and consciousness studies in the Nobel Prizes so I’d like to invite you submit your nominations for the award of an ‘honorary’ Nobel Prize for Research into the Paranormal. Please nominate. anyone who is extending science to show the world that the paranormal has an empirical objective and repeatable basis and has nothing to do with beliefs. We have had a few nominations but we still have time to highlight the work of all the contemporary scientists who are pioneering the most important field in human knowledge.

YOUR LEGAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY VICTOR ZAMMIT: 'SERVICE TO MY REGULAR READERS AND TO THE COMMUNITY': whilst this has nothing to do with afterlife matters, over the many years of doing afterlife research, I received many questions from my regular readers who needed legal advice but did not have the money to go to a lawyer. Accordingly, I have put on the website a special section for the many legal questions/answers (eg. negligence, defamation, police matters, murder, assault, divorce, Wills, probate, property, claims against insurance co's., leases, marriage rights, medical assault, police radars - and for other, click on archives on the blog) for for my regular readers - and for general readership and information.
