North, Stephen – No touch metal bending - a slow start with gradually increasing frequency of occurrence of signals
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
THE METAL-BENDERS” by PROFESSOR JOHN B. HASTED
David Robertson and I made video-records of strain gauge experiments with Stephen North and Julie Knowles.
When a long, thin (0.75 mm X 8 mm X 40 cm) metal specimen suspended at each end received paranormal strains at the centre, it sometimes continued its bending oscillations, which were recorded until they died out in a few seconds due to physical damping.
A feature of the sessions with both Stephen North and Nicholas Williams was the slow start with gradually increasing frequency of occurrence of signals. It is possible that they were learning during the session to lose their inhibitions against producing signals.
Several children have commenced sessions with small signals, separated by long periods of time; but not all of them make the transition into the more powerful regime, when signals come thick and fast.
