Stalin next proposed a more intriguing task from a dictator's point of view. Messing was taken to an important government office-perhaps inside the Kremlin. Three different sets of security guards were ordered not to let Messing leave the room or the building. He had no exit pass.
"I fulfilled the assignment without difficulty," says Messing, "but when I stepped outside onto the street I couldn't resist turning and waving at the high government official watching from the top-floor window of the room I just left."
We'd thought a lot of things about Stalin, but never that he was a psychic researcher. These extraordinary accounts weren't smuggled out of Russia in a whisper. The Soviets themselves published them in the important journal, Science and Religion, as part of Messing's autobiography, About Myself. The mere fact that they passed both the political censors and the official atheistic policy of this influential magazine is in itself good evidence for their validity. In About Myself Messing remarks he had many encounters with Stalin.
