T C Lethbridge – A Step in the Dark
Some months ago my wife saw a friend of ours, who had hurt his toe which was painful. More or less jokingly he dared her to heal it. Naturally, being dared like that, she took up the challenge and then expected me to know how she ought to do it. I had not the slightest idea how to begin. But I did have two rates, which were apparently those of Health and Disease. They were opposites on the 40-divisional circle, 32 and 12 inches respectively. We had no blood-spot; but we had a specimen of the man’s handwriting. Going by intuition rather than reason, it seemed to us that if you tuned in on the right rate for health over this letter you might produce the same kind of result as with the Box.
Since my wife had been challenged, she had to be the magician. She measured the 32-inch rate on the pendulum and swung it gently over the letter lying on the stone floor. It gyrated strongly and she counted 120 revolutions. Then it stopped and returned to a back and forth swing. At a second count later in the day the number of revolutions fell to 96. Two counts next day gave 2 each time and the following day two of 60. Then one of 44 and lastly one of 32, which was the same as the rate on the pendulum. We thought it was probably similar to the ‘normal’ of a clinical thermometer, but we were wrong.
For three and half days the 32 count remained steady. And then an evening count suddenly gave 96 followed next Morning by one of 50!
There were then five consecutive counts of 32. At this point the count dropped to 0 and remained so.
We were, of course, most interested to know whether anything at all had happened to our friend. Then six days after the [zero reading], my wife saw him and talked to him about it. His foot had apparently recovered, which it might have done in any case, but the jump in the counts was far more interesting.
At 5 p.m. on the 1st December, 1965, [the day of the odd anomaly] the count was taken and written down in a note book following those which had preceded it. At 8 p.m. on the same day our friend was standing on a chair doing some building work when it collapsed and threw him on to a heap of rubble. He was not much hurt, but it was of course a shock. …….the pendulum told us that something had upset our friend's health count. It happened approximately fifteen miles away from here. It was a relatively trivial matter, but there it was, indicated in the notebook.
