Helson, Professor Harry - It was a fact that he had been a poltergeist kid
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Beyond Biofeedback – Drs Elmer and Alyce Green
Edgar Cayce was one of the poltergeist kids, and so was Harry Helson, the psychologist whom Gardner Murphy suggested I talk to about my mathematical paper on the adaptation law for vision.
While driving to Manhattan, Kansas, to meet Harry, Gardner told me that some unusual things had happened in Harry's life, which Harry might tell me about if I asked.
Responding to my queries, Harry said that generally he did not talk about his early experiences for fear of upsetting his colleagues, but it was a fact that he had been a poltergeist kid. When he was young a number of things happened that could not be explained: Chairs rocked, doors slammed, coal flew out of the coal scuttle and banged into the walls, cans slid off shelves.
His parents were relieved when the phenomena stopped.
