Gill Costin and Kim Griffiths – Receive apported letters whose origin is completely unknown
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
THE METAL-BENDERS” by JOHN B. HASTED
In 1978 metal-benders Gill Costin and Kim Griffiths tried to teleport letters to Uri Geller, who never received them.
But they received ‘apports’, including some letters, whose origin is completely unknown. The information in them appears to come from some sort of ‘knowledge store’ (or possibly the subliminal memory). The phenomenon is rather like speaking with tongues or automatic writing in remote languages. Here are some quotations from their letters:
1 ‘Die Geisterwelt ist nicht verschlossen’
The first Greek quotation is from the Iliad (2:56), with slight alterations; it means: ‘There came to me in the night a divine dream.’ The second is from Acts 2 :17, and means: ‘The older of you will have a dream during the night.’ These are of course well known and were traced for me in five minutes by Professor Giangrande. The quotation from Goethe’s Faust is also well known.
Possibly ‘Radwan’ refers to the noble Radovan, son of Knight George, nephew of the Venetian premeditor of Zang, and hero of a Guslerlied (song with south Slav musical instrument): Radovan simulated death in a yoga-trance in order to escape prison.
Presumably ‘Nepesh’ is a reference to the ancient Egyptian word for the soul.
It is an interesting collection to be turned up by two teen-age girls, and many people will speculate that they researched the items themselves, possibly with help from school. But if one meets Gill and Kim, one finds this very difficult to believe.
