|ARE SPIRITS REAL?
DECIDE FOR YOURSELF!
Most people think all physical mediums are fakes because of the frauds who sought to capitalize on the success of real mediums and because of arch skeptics who refuse to accept what they don't understand. This book demonstrates that these mind-boggling feats such as the movement and levitation of tables or other objects, ectoplasmic apparitions, direct voices and raps are indeed real. Their existence illustrates just how little science knows, and shows us that we need to revise our understanding of reality in order to explain these phenomena.
The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof focuses on one little known episode of physical mediumship. Gilbert Roller's utterly charming and disarming autobiographical account of a group of teenagers who experimented with seance phenomena and contacted an alleged spirit named Dr. Bindelof.
Author Rosemarie Pilkington follows up with the history of these extraordinary physical mediums and the remarkable feats they perform, placing the Bindelof case within this wider framework and bringing it up to date with a review of contemporary "secular" mediums.
