A description of the experience
Described in Experiments in mental suggestion – Professor L L Vasiliev
A large series of experiments at very substantial distances was organised by the Athens Society for Psychical Research in 1925. The experiments were carried out between Athens and Paris (2101 kms), Warsaw and Athens (1597 kms), and Vienna and Athens (1284 kms). The results of these experiments were reported by Dr. Constantinides at the Fourth International Congress of Psychical Research.
Geometrical figures, pictures, letters and, less frequently, solid objects, were transmitted. Each group of experimenters consisted of several persons who acted either as senders or as percipients. Sometimes the percipients were put in a hypnotic state in the hope of improving the results.
Transmission and reception of mental suggestions were synchronised. Each transmission in either direction was made twice and lasted for 5 minutes with an interval of 5 minutes. Comparing the original transmission objects with the reproductions made by the percipients, it is hard not to agree with Dr Constantinides that these experiments provide evidence for the possibility of mental influencing at great distances.
