Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
EXPERIMENT No. 5
Place — my house in London.
Sensitive, male, aged about 34.
One of the two female entities referred to in Experiment No. 4, a tall and particularly graceful woman, apparently about twenty-five years of age, was walking amongst the Sitters, talking to them, and showing them her beautifully modelled hands, the fingers being unusually long and tapering.
Stopping in front of one of the male Sitters (Mr D.), whose thoughts at that moment she must have clearly read, she asked him to lend her his gold signet-ring. He admitted afterwards, that in spite of all that he saw for himself that night, he still half believed that the male Sensitive had escaped from his chair, and was masquerading cleverly as the female entity.
With considerable difficulty Mr D. took the ring off his little finger, and she then held up both her hands, and, in the presence of the fifteen other Sitters, he dropped his ring quite easily over, not only each of her eight fingers, but over both thumbs as well. He then put the ring into his waistcoat pocket, and, at the conclusion of the experiment, we stood round him whilst he tested the ring on the hands of the Sensitive, and he was altogether unable to pass it over the second joint of any of his fingers on either hand, and could not get it on to his thumbs at all.
