The study of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, remote viewing, and several other phenomenon under the branch of study known today as “parapsychology” has been occurring for more than a century. These abilities have been well documented by experiments and studies conducted all over the world, and this article will provide links to multiple examples. What’s quite ironic about parapsychological phenomenon is that, for decades, it’s been studied at the highest level of government with eye-opening results (from the declassified literature alone) yet it’s still somewhat ridiculed within mainstream academia. This has been a problem in science for quite a long time, “intellectual” authorities have long pronounced their supremacy by ridiculing ideas, information and findings that don’t fit within the framework of accepted knowledge, but, as we move into 2021 and beyond there are many sings that this is starting to change.

Human beings with “special” abilities, as I said in the paragraph above, seems to be a documented reality. This is evident from CIA (and other intelligence/military agencies from around the world) parapsychological studies and reports that document the reality of the phenomenon. Here, for example, is a document showing how gifted children were able to teleport objects from one location to another, even though the objects were inclosed inside containers. This is also mentioned in an Air Force teleportation physics study. It’s one of many examples, here’s another example documenting the “paranormal writing” of a gifted girl.

These abilities are a common theme throughout human history. From the Vedic texts and the yoga sutras, all the way to Moses, Jesus, Milarepa and Mohammed, to the present day. There is reason to suggest these abilities are innate within all of us, one does not have to be “special.” I often don’t like to use the word “paranormal” as much of what we define as paranormal, in my opinion, is actually quite normal. Donald Lopez Jr., a professor of Buddhist and Tibetan Studies and the University of Michigan provides a great example in describing the Buddha:

Lotte Plaat: I recently came across another declassified CIA document that describes a woman by the name of Lotte Plaat. She was a supposed Psychometrist. This ability is also referred to as object reading, a process whereby facts or impressions about a person or thing are received through contact with an object associated with the subject of the impressions. Rings, photographs, and similar tokens are often used, but sometimes the physical presence of a person may bring about images or visions in the psychometrist’s mind that correspond to real facts (sometimes still in the future) in the life of the subject.

This is very interesting and raises a number of questions about the nature of consciousness, as so many other parapsychological studies from decades ago, all the way up to today, do.

After I came across this, I found a publication in the British College of Psychic Science. Their specific release on April 1930 mentions Platt and provides a great deal of information about her abilities. The CIA document cited above doesn’t have much information about her, and doesn’t really provide much information about the document itself.

You can view the British College of Psychic Science publication I am referring to here. The information regarding Lotte Plaat starts on page 13.  For those of you who have trouble reading the specific document because of the font size, I have copied and pasted the text below. It was written by Mrs. Hewat McKenzie, a renowned parapsychological researcher at the time.

A Dutch member was the first to mention Mme. Lotte Platt’s fine work to me, and suggested a visit to the College. This was arranged and took place in the autumn of 1929, and was followed by a second this spring, at the express invitation of the Council of the College. Through these visits, many have been made acquainted with, and become highly appreciative of the psychic powers of this Continental sensitive, hitherto unknown in England, though I found that on the Continent her work was already held in esteem. Mme. Plaat is the daughter of the Dutch Consul in Oldenberg, Germany.

She is a handsome and attractive woman, of over six feet in height, very well educated, and highly intelligent; she speaks several languages fluently, and has an excellent command of English. Mme. Akkeringa, a Dutch sensitive, who visited the College some years ago, told her that she possessed a psychic gift, and sometime later, after a serious illness about three years ago, Mme. Plaat began to try psychometry, with almost immediate success, and from that time has practiced it with diligence. She has appreciated her gift and taken care of it, and has always been willing to have her work seriously examined, as instanced by a visit she paid to Berlin, in the spring of 1929, when she submitted herself to a Committee of doctors and professors.

Dr. Paul Siinner, the Editor of the chief German psychical journal, considered it so well worthwhile that he collected the various verbatim reports of interviews with members of the Committee, and issued them in a valuable brochure which contains the most modern record of this strange psychical gift of which Professor Hans Driesch of Leipzig has not hesitated to affirm, that “ The core of all psychic investigation lies without doubt in the problem of so called psychometry.” A leading article in the report is from the pen of Dr. Gustav Pagenstecher, of Mexico, who for many years studied the famous S. American psychometrist, Maria Reyes; a report of this compiled by Dr. W. Franklin Prince, of Boston, forms one of our best modern reports on psychometry.

In the Siinner report, Dr. Pagenstecher notes the following similarities between the mediumship of his former subject, Maria Reyes, and that of Lotte Plaat:— 1. —In contradiction to others, Maria Reyes and Lotte Plaat need only to touch an object, others seem to knead, squeeze, twist, etc., the object, or press the central point of brow or solar plexus. (In the case of some famous American experiments the sensitive held the letter behind her back.—Ed.) 2. —These two mediums do not need to move from place to place it is sufficient to give them the object.

3. —Neither of these two speak of the visions coming to them with lightning rapidity as some do. In general they emphasise the racing of visions across their soul vision as if one picture were hastening to crowd another out. 4. —They are able to feel the whole gamut of sensations ; they do not only see, they feel, feel pressure, warmth, cold, pain, anxiety, etc., while other mediums only describe their visions. 5. —To them it is not a case of a panoramic event unrolling itself to their spirit eyes, they live the thing intensively—Maria Reyes in particular— in dramatic fashion, suffering, feeling and even taking part as a personality.

They have faintings, anxieties, palpitations, in other words, are sharers of the event, which does not seem to be the case with others. 6. —Both are victims of severe bodily ailments. Maria Reyes suffers from diabetes, gallstones, and inflammation of the stomach. Mme. Plaat suffered for long with an internal inflammation for which she had to undergo an operation after which her mediumistic faculties were first noticeable. Of difference he notes :— 1. —Mme Plaat is normally conscious, has all her senses awake, especially memory ; Maria Reyes exercised her gift during a trance state. 2. —Mme. Plaat has the noticeable faculty of “ getting in touch ” and establishing psychic rapport often without physical contact.

Before touching an object she will say : “ Among these articles is one that belonged to a departed personality,” or something equally true, proven afterwards by given details. Maria Reyes always required that an object should be placed physically in contact with her. As to the methods of sensing, Mme Plaat affirms that amongst a choice of objects given for test, she always takes those to which she feels herself specially drawn, and says “ It is as if someone were speaking into my ear, not as if I were saying things, but as if I had to repeat what I hear.” 1. —Herr “Wiedemer in the Scientific Supplement of the Weser Times, says : Lotte Plaat was given the letter of a young man to hold who was undergoing a sentence for some misdeed in the Oldenburg Prison Vechta. She first mentioned very marked characteristics and peculiarities.

I asked “ Is the writer in the neighbourhood of Oldenburg or more distant ? ” After a moment’s thought the medium said suddenly “ Yes, it seems as if I were in prison, I see iron bars.” I ask, “ How is he ? ” “ He is bowed and depressed, his head sunk in his hands. But there is someone who has a good influence on him and works on his better nature.” These details were subsequently proven. The helpful friend was the pastor. The deed for which the young man was imprisoned was also correctly described by Mme. Plaat. 2. —The following was particularly accurate. Mme. Plaat was given a letter by a Herr H—. She said “ You are much connected with this : I hear foreign languages. I hear singing in Italian, I read Italian, I feel something lively. But the eyes are melancholy ; Why must I speak so clearly ! There is something singing in the whole character. I get a nervous sensation, I do not feel well, cannot eat, I am ill, but now am better. . . . I am tired, slack, without will because not well. I hear constant piano playing, I want to play myself. I see slender hands.” Herr H. replied, ‘ The most important thing is missing.” Lotte Plaat continues, “ Again this foreign language. Something dreadful has happened. I hear screaming.” Herr H. “ Can you tell me anything of her calling and personal gifts ? ” L. Plaat. “ She is musical, but that is not the main thing. She talks a lot. It must be something to do with talking and movement. I am struck with the voice. I must speak softly. She is dead. Why must I make certain movements, gestures ? She is supple, willowy. My whole body must bend. She is young ; I want to dance on my toes. My thumbs hurt me, the right one chiefly. (Medium makes characteristic movements in the air).

It is not drawing. I have something in my hand, it is like kneading, modelling, sculpting.” Herr H. explained that the letter was from a young lady well known to him, who died at twenty. She was an artist, modeller and sculptress. A very gifted woman travelled much, spoke French, English, Spanish,, but most beautiful Italian. The physical description was most accurate. She died of double pneumonia. Mme. Plaat’s psychometry is not limited to the immediate present. On one occasion she was given a small piece of marble, and took the history back to pre-Christian times, describing Roman soldiers, horses in chariots, hoof beats, women carrying water jugs on the head, processions, temples, ceremonies. The piece of marble had been picked up in Carthage 20 years previously. Dr. Siinner says, “ When we finished our experiments with Mme. Plaat we found that in thirty-eight experiments twenty-eight were very good, five were wrong, and five gave mixed results.

On one occasion a silver match box was put in front of her, at once she had the impression of being in the war, saw flames, and smoke, heard shouting and an explosion, crying, and sensed smells and a sharp air. She added that the box had been in a small room when she saw fire, and that she heard a noise of ticking as if something was going to explode. She claimed that her eyes hurt her as if she was burned, and she rubbed her hand over her right cheek, and complained of pain in her back. Dr. J., to whom it belonged, stated that he got this case in 1915 in France, on the Somme. He had lain for days in an underground hole under non-stopping grenade fire, suddenly a grenade came into the hole, touched him on his right cheek and wounded him, and mortally wounded an officer near. Dr. J. gave the dying man an injection of morphia in his back, and with a last movement he took the case from his pocket and gave it to Dr. J. Mme. Plaat not only heard the grenade, the shouting, the explosion, but saw the flames, the small room, and smelt the sharp air of gas, got the wounding on the cheek and the pain of the injection in the back.

One evening, a Dr R. extremely anxious about a brother who had been absent from home for some time, gave Mme. Plaat an old letter from his brother to psychometrize. She at once said “ Suicide.” “ Impossible ” said the inquirer. “ I see Berlin,” said Mme. Plaat, “ and a man putting a revolver against his forehead.” Then she saw two men with this man. Dr. R. still said the whole story was impossible. Almost as he spoke, the telephone bell rang with a message from a Berlin Hospital, saying that his brother had just been brought there after trying to kill himself, and was between life and death. ***** A series of experiments dealing with metals and medicines was carried out with Mme. Plaat by Dr. Dietz of the Hague, and Dr. TenhaeiT of Utrecht, in January and July, 1929, and is reported in “ Spiritische Bladen,” a Dutch journal, in October, 1929. Dr. Tenhaeff got the metals from Dr. Schwabe of Leipzig, in small bottles, everything looked like distilled water, without colour, and without smell, and all bottles were numbered so that afterwards Dr. Tenhaeff could compare on a list which metal Mme.

Plaat had held and described. He had never looked at the list before he gave Mme. Plaat the sample in her hand, so that neither knew what it was, and telepathy was impossible. Alternating with the metals he gave her medicines, also in bottles, and prepared in the same way. Four Separate Tests of Solution of a Metal called Quick. January 21st/—Mme. Plaat. “I get an impression as if I see everything in flames. I am hot all down my back. I can’t breathe, just as if I am inhaling fumes of coal or another poisonous gas. It is horrible.” January 23rd.—“ I see a great blue light. I get a taste of metal. It is just as if fumes of coals are getting on my lungs.” January 24th.—“ I can’t swallow, I can’t breathe, it is all fumes of coal and gas.” July 4th.—“ I see silver-grey, quick, grey. I have the feeling of being poisoned. It is a metal with violent yellow-blue colour. It is a terrible poison, it is quick.” July 1th.—Exactly the same said again. N ote.—“ Quick ” is extracted from cinnabar. (HgS) This stuff is baked in furnaces with the object of oxidising the sulphur to set the quicksilver free. When Mme. Plaat said she saw flames, and also when she got the feeling of suffocation, she sensed this process. She gave on one occasion the name of the metal right. Quicksilver is Lotte Plaat – A Remarkable Psychometrist. The color of the metal is silver grey.

Six Separate Experiments with Solution of Gold . January 1st.—“ My whole body is itching. I have a feeling as if I am burnt over all my body. What has water to do with this ? ” . January 23rd.—“ Water, dust particles, water of a river, I have to shut my eyes, I am awfully hot, itching, burning.” January 24th.—“ I am very hot, pain in my eyes, burning, itching.” July 4th.—“ That is a metal, I don’t smell or taste anything. One finds it in small pieces as fine as dust. Now it is irritating me, it is gold.” July 5th and 6th.—The same was repeated. N ote.—Gold in the Transvaal and also in California, is washed out of the rivers. If gold is taken, “ Hyperaemia ” (in the eyes) is the result, and a feeling of itching. Four Experiments with Solution of Quinine . January 21it.—“ White, mountains, bitter as gall.” January ‘1st—“ White and bitter.” July 3rd and 11th.—“A bitter taste in my mouth. I can’t swallow. I don’t like it at all. It is white and bitter. I get a pain in my stomach, ears are buzzing, it comes from a plant. This plant is growing against mountains. The plant is not white.

It grows in a hot wet climate. When the stuff is made it is white and as bitter as gall.” On the 7th, the medium said at once “ it is quinine,” and the rest was repeated. N o te.—The quinine tree is grown in the tropics and the leaves are green. Quinine has a bitter taste, and one gets ear buzzing and all the other symptoms mentioned. These experiments remind me of those made by Dr. and Mrs. Denton, of U.S.A., many years ago, and reported in “ The Soul of Things,” which can be found in the College Library. Mme. Plaat is particularly sensitive to any illness associated with an article, and feels as if she herself were experiencing it in every detail. Even in the street she has noticed in people near her suffering, and even wounds and scars that they bear, and has been able to verify in some cases that she was correct. She reads character accurately and often foretells the future and above all, she has been the means of providing real comfort in sorrow to many by predicting a happy ending of illness and trouble, which has come to pass. Recently Mme. Plaat had had the honour of an invitation to be present at the International Congress of Scientific Psychical Research to be held at Athens in April, as a demonstrating sensitive, but she has not yet decided on this step. Dr. Tanagras, of Athens, who is organising the Congress at the home end, speaks of her work and publishes her photograph in a recent issue of the Journal of the Hellenic S.P.R. Recently, too, Mme.

Plaat was asked to assist in psychometrising some articles pertaining to the victims of the Düsseldorf criminal, and the results were submitted to the Criminal Investigation Department of that city. On various occasions previously her advice has been sought in criminal cases, with success, but details cannot be published. SOME INSTANCES OF RESULTS AT THE COLLEGE. It would be quite impossible to give a record of all the work accomplished by Mme. Plaat at the College, with individuals, and in groups, but the following, which I am kindly allowed to use by experimenters, are of interest. Very often the psychometry obtained from handling an article is followed by her with pure clairvoyance dealing with the life of the sitter and often pertains to deceased friends who seem to be present in reality to the sensitive.

I think Mme. Plaat’s gift is capable of much further development with legitimate exercise. Case 1.—This related to certain complicated and inexplicable conditions of a business which had puzzled sitters over a long period. Mme Plaat was handed two letters from different individuals concerned, and at once seized upon the characteristics and motives of the personalities involved, as well as the nature of the transactions. With great distaste she kept dropping the letters and begged that they should be taken from her as she could not stand the villainy that lay below the seeming suavity and charm. She sensed with great definition the conjoined efforts to exploit destructively work accomplished by others.

A letter written at a much later date, and given to her separately for a reading, was at once recognised by her as dealing with the same group of circumstances. She continued pointing to one of the group of sitters, “ I see a picture : you are the one they wished to destroy. It is as if they had you by the throat, squeezing the life out of you, but not a word could you get out of them. Oh, no, the mouth would be shut tight even if you asked them for explanations.” That this was not merely symbolical, but literally the fact, is the report of the sitter concerned. Case 2.—A small stone, in size, similar in appearance to hundreds to be seen in the gravel on London streets, taken by the sitter a few months previously from the cement in the inside of the Roman Wall in the Open Air Theatre, at Taormina in Sicily which is said to date back to 300 B.C., was given to the medium. M m e. P laat.—First I get the place where the stone comes from. I have a very salty taste in my mouth, not at all nice. It smells as the sea water sometimes smells, a nasty smell. I see a beautiful blue sky, not in England, not Holland, much further. It is warm there. Not India, not so far as that. It seems to me nearer France, a country where the climate is like that of France, but it is further away.

Wonderful air and beautiful flowers; water so lovely, blue, everything deep blue. The people have most lovely dark eyes, so beautiful, the girls have beautiful dresses, and round their shoulders a shawl with a long fringe. Black skirts and much red and warm colours and black hair, but others come between them with fair hair, more gold in it, the men also have black hair and the colour is yellow. The houses are pretty and high up, and the gardens are hanging, and there seem to be many people sitting about there painting. (Here by gesture the medium gave a graphic description of the way the road winds up the mountain and gives the impression of the gardens of the higher houses hanging over the houses lower on the mountain side. This continues right up the mountain to the Theatre on the summit.) Mme. Plaat. —The sand is white like it is in Shanklin, where there are no nasty stones under your feet. It burns. I do not get anything personal with this stone. The people have a language I cannot speak. I have never been there, but I see an unusual thing. Absolutely beautiful people, and the poorest in the world, most picturesque, poor people, and very elegant. I see lots of ships and boats and small fishing boats, everything like a beautiful picture. (The whole condition described was relevant and as correct as if she had been on the spot.)

Case 3.—A small fragment of rock was handed to the psychometrist, and the sitter notes :— “ Had Mme. Plaat been acquainted with the history or paid a visit to the site of where once stood the flourishing city of Salamis, conspicuous for its Temple of the Salaminian Jupiter, she could not have given a better description. With the mannerism of a geologist she weighed the small fragment of rock, carelessly picked up by myself on the site of the once great commercial city ; to-day a heap of ruins with its marble columns as they fell in the second century A.D. After carefully describing the general features of the country, the position of the town in relation to the sea, she traced a map on the wall, with her finger, made reference to wars, and with an exclamation of ‘ Oh ! ’ her face changed to one gazing upon a scene of horror.

She described the terrible earthquake that laid the whole city and its busy harbour in a heap of ruins in a night, and concluded by saying ‘ Terrible, terrible, the houses are all down, the people are all dead.’ Pleased with the excellent description I replied ‘ Splendid.’ Holding her hand upon her breast she remarked as she put the stone on the table, ‘ Yes, but not for me.’ Mme. Plaat might have given many other impressions of a stone picked up at Salamis, but the shock of the earthquake was to her sensitivity as real as if she had actually been an eye-witness and in its magnitude may have obscured other aspects.” Case 4.—Psychometry of a Gold Ring. The sitter says, “ I had not met Mme. Plaat before, and I am satisfied she knew nothing of me. I gave her a gold ring, and on receiving this, she at once gave an accurate and detailed description of a deceased friend of mine who had given me the ring. She also correctly described the symptoms of her last illness. She gave various facts about my own life, and demonstrated with her hands my unusual occupation. She suddenly put her hands to her eyes and complained of severe pain especially in the right eye, giving date of 1925.

She spoke of squint,blackness, distortion and finally a mist with eyes moving in opposite directions. Spoke of a mist before eyes which affected me occasionally at present moment. She spoke as if she saw my dead friend standing behind my chair. My occupation is aviation. She took an imaginary “ joy-stick ” between her hands and gave the correct movements of control. This is more interesting than it sounds, as I do not think anyone but a pilot could imitate those movements correctly in such detail. In 1925 I underwent an operation for a squint. Both eyes and especially right were very painful where adjustment was made. Everything was temporarily distorted and misty, and I occasionally suffer from the latter condition now. The medium did not know me nor anything of my operation, but it may be asked “ Could she read it from my eyes ? ”

I have asked many people, experts and others, both since and before the sitting, and everyone agrees that there is no trace of either squint or operation to be seen in my eyes. A number of interesting groups have been held at the College with Mme. Plaat, under the superintendence of Mrs. Champion de Crespigny, the Chairman of the Council. These were composed of persons quite unknown to Mme. Plaat, and were not introduced to her. The following notes show some results in one such group held on October 24th. 1. —A stone was put in her hand. Mme. Plaat.—“ This is not from England. Something horrible happened. I feel hot, hot, people were killed, awful noise. I see men ; I get people. Horrible shouts—blowing up.” (Comment by sitter : This is correct, the stone was blown up out of pavement at Zeebrugge.) 2. —An envelope was given which contained spots of a patient’s blood. M m e. P laat.—I get a feeling of death. I want air. Very weak.

She won’t give in, will not die. Nervous, but did control her nerves. Intelligent woman. Has clever observant eyes, soft mouth. I get pain in right side. I don’t see it good. She will give up blood—death.” (The doctor who gave this said it was a correct description, the patient suffered from cancer of the right breast and the case was hopeless.) 3. —A worked pocket-case was given by the sitter. Mme. P laat.—“ This belonged to someone who is dead. It must have been made by a woman who is dead. There are influences of others here also, as well as your own. I see a photograph of a group, and the woman is one of them. I get a nice quiet charming feeling with this woman. Later I sense a very depressed condition, very sad, many tears, a life full of trouble, but she had power to fight against it. I sense a nervous breakdown, as if she had to let go. A heart condition, I want air, I feel dizzy, as if all the blood is going out of mv brain.

Medium Medium places hand on chest and says she doesn’t feel well at all ; doesn’t want to eat, great nausea, almost seasick. (Medium had a bad bout of seasickness recently and may use this analogy.) I am warm and cold—shivering—my forehead hurts. Pain is going towards left side, medium indicates a patch on left, and also feels pain across back. Senses a funny taste in mouth and a gripping sensation like cramp. Pains in legs, in left more than right, stabbing pain in back, as if in chest and back together, arms are sore, left more than right. Still the dizzy feeling, breast, back and heart all weak. I see her very ill, weak.” (Medium drops her head on one side to indicate a condition of passing.) Description of lady.—•“ Very quick brain, when she met anyone she summed them up quickly. Her eyes, not brown, but a dark grey-blue, looking seriously at one. Eyes rather deep set. Nose not prominent, mouth finely built, good teeth, chin rather round. Depressions in temples. Not very tall. A musical voice, almost a laugh.” “ Now I get many books round me, and some pain in lumbar region, another influence, I think, perhaps your own,” (to sitter).

The sitter, a well-known scientific man, allows me to give his comments on the reading. “ The pocket book was made for me and given to me by a beautiful young artist to whom in my youth I was engaged. About two years after she died, and after her death I collected some mementoes of her and put them in the pocket-book and hardly ever looked at them again, as the associations were painful. I was in a very sceptical mood when I came to Mme. Plaat, and chose this pocket-book because I thought there was nothing in it to make the medium guess at its origin by ‘ fishing ’ questions, as I thought she might do. I removed the contents before coming to the College, amongst them were letters from her, and a snapshot showing the artist and a group of three friends, a lock of hair cut after her death, a ring, and a long letter from her father describing her last illness and death. The case also contained something belonging to another friend, and a lock of my wife’s hair. The reading seemed to gather exclusively round my artist friend.

When we got home after the sitting my wife and I replaced the articles in the case and she re-read to me the father’s letter, the details of which I had forgotten. They were a startling confirmation of Mme. Plaat’s impressions. The pain in the left side, and a day or so before her death, pain and nausea in the stomach, culminating in vomiting and failure of strength. From another letter from her mother, not in the case, we were told how the dying girl, propped up in bed, breathed heavily for a few minutes and then her head fell on one side, as Mme. Plaat indicated. She had a very hard life and carried on through many troubles. The personal description was in the main, correct. “ I think the majority of what I may call the ‘ memories ’ must have been inherent in the lock of the artist’s hair, possibly also in the father’s letter. Obviously none of them inhered  in the pocket-book which was given me so long ago, or in the letters and ring given me while she was still well. Though there was nothing in the sitting to suggest the presence of dead people, I got from it a vivid and abiding impression of the reality of the supernormal. No possible physical explanation can be adduced to explain the inherence of memories and emotions and suffering in a lock of hair thirty-five years after the owners’ death.”

4. —An old green copper coin with a hole was handed to medium. M m e. P laat.—“ Such a lot of people about me. I am under the open sky in the country in England. I do not like the feeling I get, I have to crouch down and stay like that, almost to lie down on the ground, something very noisy going on overhead. Everyone seems to be running. A funny noise in my ears, a sudden death, not in bed. I see a man very straight and tall, such a noise, sudden death. Place is hilly, not many trees, near water.” Sitter said the coin was picked up in a crypt under a house said to be on the site of an old Benedictine Monastery in England, where skeleton of a man was found some years ago. Description of locality of house is approximately correct. There is water near. She writes to me since, “ My father told me the skeleton had a dent or hole in the skull which would confirm Mme. Plaat’s reading ; it was conjectured he was a monk, and I had never associated the coin dated 1817, with the skeleton. 5. —A small dark object handed to medium. She was asked not to look at it.

Light was too dim for her to see colour. Mme. Plaat.—“ You received this from a man not alive. It is not from England. It is a piece of something else, was found in the ground. Given you for luck. Is it green ? ” (It was very dark green). “ There have been gold markings on it and what it was connected with was richly ornamented. I get a religious atmosphere with it. I see three persons, one man, very old and straight, yellowish face, religious atmosphere connected with him.” The sitter confirmed that the article, worn as a trinket, had been given her for luck, but by a woman now dead. A well-known Egyptologist to whom it had been shown, said it was probably out of an Egyptian tomb, probably 3,000 years old, and this may account for medium’s seeing it with other things. There had been gold lettering on it, now worn off, but faintly visible under a magnifying glass. 6. —A three-cornered piece of leaded, dull-coloured stained glass.

Mme. P laat.—“ Persons belonging to this are all dead. I sense a long way back. A smallish dark people, several languages spoken.” (Medium draws a peninsula running horizontally south-west, with small islands to south, and Eastward coast-line with southerly direction.) “Now I get the person who gave it to you, a man, quick and nervous. I see flames, fire and smoke. I can’t breathe. Everything is upset, feeling of fainting and falling down. I hear an explosion and there are choking fumes. A religious atmosphere, and a quiet restful feeling as if I prayed. I must lie on the ground and stretch out my hands.” Note by S itter.—The glass was picked up in the street in Bapaume after bombardment and destruction of Cathedral and was evidently a portion of a stained glass window of this. It was given to sitter by her son; so the circumstances described are remarkably correct. Sitter conjectures whether the drawing, remarkably like Cornwall, and the mention of “ the small dark people ” could be related by the lead binding the glass, which it is not improbable may have been mined in Cornwall.

7.—A Small dark round wooden box. M m e. P laat.—“ I get a very sad impression. Given you by a man now gone. He was quiet, would think before he spoke, rather nervous feeling with him. Always travelling, a restless life. I hear a foreign language. It was made by a man too. Now I get a shock, as if someone screamed. I get a feeling of water all about. I am dizzy and fall down. Did your husband give you this ? I hear ‘ husband.’ I get this shock connected with a country far away. I get a ship. The man who made it is dead too.” Note by Sitter.—The box was made from the beam of a well-known frigate in which sitter’s husband, deceased, had sailed, and was made by him and given to her. The Duke of Edinburgh was shot on shore in Australia, while in command of this frigate, the “ Galatea.” The Duke was a favourite, and the affair was a very great shock and annoyance to everyone on board. Sitter’s husband was a sub-lieutenant on frigate. It will be noted that the medium did not speak of the shock as an explosion, but as if it was something personal, the scream, the fainting and fall. (But these conditions cannot now be verified.)

7.—A packet of letters. Mme. P laat.—“ These are written by a man not in life. Death rather sudden. Pains in head, right side. He is very good-natured. Kindly look in eyes. Good sense of humour. Has travelled much. I hear French talked.” (S it t e r.—“ It is a language somewhat like French.”) Mme. Plaat.—“ Very interested in art of foreign countries, would go to old buildings, there is an artist streak in him. He would always think the best of people. He had many friends, no enemies. Did he live in England in the country ? Many people round him in other countries. He was over them. If he just looked at them they would fly to do his bidding. There lay his strength. He had coloured men under his thumb. I see them working in fields, it looks like high coarse grass. He was ill with fever there.” (Medium described terrible pains in abdomen and head and a sensation of falling over on left side.) “ Now I think I see him. He is very broad, with big chest. Now he turns his back on me, and I see the great breadth of his shoulders. I get a very horrible feeling. Paralysis of the left arm. Patch on right side of head painful. I can see it. I get nose bleeding and get pain right round body.” The Sitter Comments. —Mme. Plaat’s reading was correct in many details. The writer of the letters died of blackwater fever, a very horrible thing, and the symptoms were wonderfully given. Mme. Plaat described my friend’s face as round.

I disagreed, but on looking at a photograph I see she was more correct than myself, so this does not seem to be thought-reading. It was a habit of my friend in conversation to turn his back on one, and the enormous breadth described by her was then most noticeable.”

(Note by Editor) For my own interview with Mme. Plaat I prepared three objects. First, a dagger of peculiar shape, given me as over 300 years old, was in the possession of a Moslem lady of family and was given to me by her. Second : an inscribed stele from Babylonia, a grant bestowed upon Gula, in the year of the accession of Su Siu the king ; also, on reverse side, a grant bestowed on Ishtar of Hallabu. The names are presumed to be Sumerian or Akkadian. Third, a kettle holder worked by a bedridden patient. Each of these was wrapped in paper so as to be unrecognisable by touch. Medium said: “Many people, a war around. Muchblood. Several men had this. First a dark, yes, dark man, haughty, a rajah (medium salaamed) in a palace beautiful arabesques, a fountain in the middle. A man of power, and indifferent to life. The man to whom it was given was poisoned. A Moslem.” (These words are verbatim, but repetitions are omitted.) 2. —“ Older than the last object. 600 B.C. Has come from a tomb. Has to do with a woman, is a story of her life. Must have been a high person. The country is far far away ; not Egypt, before the Romans, Babylonian. It has a religious feeling about it.”

3. —First remark, “ She was not alive”; then, “ Someone dying, so ill, not much life, you may find her dead. Eyes are beautiful. When healthy was quick and had much will-power, never downcast. Very brave and bright.” (Correct in all but first remark.) Medium then gave me a description of my unseen friend who had not been mentioned at all, very accurate, including a special locket and miniature which she used to wear. Scent of violets, which she used to use. The message was highly characteristic, and dealt with the private circumstances of my own life.) Stanley De Brath. Enough has been said to show that in Mme. Plaat we have a sensitive of no mean order, and the College is privileged to have had her services. She is easy to work with, and takes pains with her readings. I hope we shall hear of her valuable work being tested at various centres, and welcome her again at the College.
