Hi Z

Thanks for that it also raises some interesting issues doesn't it if something from the mind of the medium can be materialised which may not have had an actual existence.

I was amused by the final sentence in Michael's article:

"Then again, perhaps Fango was the spirit of a former pseudoskeptic or debunker stuck in the muck and mire of his own non-belief."

A further interesting article re Polish medium Jean Guzik:

By the end of the 1920ies, Eugène Osty was far from his first experiments in so-called “objective” psychic research (the French term “metapsychique objective” was coigned by the famous French scientist Charles Richet in his volume Traité de Métapsychique, to label the studies of physical phenomena occurring during the Spirit trances).

In 1926, Osty had already invited the Polish medium Jean Guzik at the Institut Métapsychique International to carry on a new series of séances. Osty thought necessary to continue the works of his predecessor Gustave Geley, as the controversy about the “Manifeste des 34” and the séances at the Sorbonne in 1923 had left many outstanding questions and aroused a number of frustrations among the specialists.

More than that, in 1925, bad news came from Poland : during séances held by the Psychic society in Cracow, a picture had been shot without Guzik’s knowledge.

The picture showed him with his left hand freed - from any bond - hovering over the table.

So, if Guzik ever was a genuine medium, he nevertheless lost his power and had to cheat in order to satisfy the scientists.

Was Guzik only a fraud having succeeded in deceiving several French important persons, thus implicated in a great sham?

Eugène Osty wanted to get to the bottom of it. Between March and May 1926 he therefore organized new séances with the Polish medium.

Osty succeeded in convincing a physicist, who wished to remain anonymous, to work at the elaboration of a system of photography by ultraviolet rays, so as to seize the phenomena on the spot, in darkness, without upsetting the medium during the séance.

Taken from : The Universe Wants to Play: The Anomalist 12 a Nonfiction Anthology by Patrick Huyghe and Dennis Stacy

ISBN 1933665149

The interesting part is the article by journalist Gregory Gutierez who examines early attempts to scientifically monitor the famous Austrian medium Rudi Schneider..
