A description of the experience

T C Lethbridge – A Step in the Dark

I began by tabulating such rates as had been discovered. But a table as such is not particularly helpful. As I studied the table, a rather remarkable feature caught my eye.  Certain basic concepts were found together at 10, 20, 30 or 40 inches:

 

10 inch

20 inch

30 inch

40 inch

Light

Life

Sound

Death

Sun

Heat

Moon

Cold

Fire

Earth

Water

Air

Red

White

Green

Black

East

South

West

North

Graphite

Electricity

Hydrogen

Sleep

Truth

-

-

Falsehood

 

All these were of such importance that it seemed obvious to me that I was dealing with some completely fundamental plan.

It could be no accident that, with a table beginning at 0 and ending at 40, each 10-inch rate should carry with it so many matters of vital consequence. Some intelligence must have constructed the scale and fitted everything into it. I looked at what I had found in astonishment. It seemed quite impossible to believe that so simple a thing as a pendulum could tell such a remarkable story. The rejected study was giving the evidence, which all other studies had failed to produce. Materialists were materialists simply because they could not observe a basic plan behind the other studies.
