This book, which covers Visions and hallucinations, explains what causes them and summarises how many hallucinations have been caused by each event or activity. It also provides specific help with questions people have asked us, such as ‘Is my medication giving me hallucinations?’.

Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience


….. it seems that one primary mechanism of paranormal metal-bending is the formation of dislocation loops within the metal crystal. Metal-bending has often been found to be accompanied by dynamic strain pulses; and the dynamic strain pulses are often accompanied by dislocations.

The next step is to consider how a dislocation is formed. The normal method of formation requires some force or atomic movement brought about by action in another part of the metal. So the first dislocation cannot be brought about normally without external force, heat or nuclear radiation being applied. We have searched for macroscopic heat and for nuclear radiation, with negative results.

My own speculation is that, temporarily, a vacancy or group of vacancies might be formed paranormally; such vacancies would propagate as dislocations, by normal physical processes.

In later chapters, using quite a different approach, we shall see that the appearance and also the disappearance of macroscopic objects from given locations is known to have taken place in the presence of metal-benders and other psychics; it is known as ‘teleportation’. Vacancy formation might be regarded as teleportation on a microscopic scale.

However, we do not know that the primary event is not the transfer of energy rather than that of particles.

A possible piece of evidence for vacancy formation comes from the investigations by Rauscher and Hubbard of the surface of a crystal of potassium bichromate K2 Cr2 O7 cleaved paranormally by Uri Geller.

When electron micrographs of this fractured surface were compared with those of a normally cleaved crystal grown under the same conditions, it was found that the Geller crystal had a number of ‘trench-like’ features which appear to be rectangular cavities in the crystal bulk. None of these features was seen in the control crystal.

It is tempting to regard these cavities as examples of a sort of gigantic vacancy formation. However, the possibility that inclusions of air were trapped during growth should not be overlooked, and further growings and exposures are now being undertaken.
