Type of Spiritual Experience
In this example both doctors are assuming that somehow the one can read blindfolded. But Dr Karagulla knew the content of the photo, thus as long as there was enough rapport between her and the main doctor - which there was - we have inter composer co-operation - a relay of images between composers
A description of the experience
Breakthrough to Creativity – Dr Shafica Karagulla
Dr. James was so sure it couldn't be done that he refused to try it. Dr. Dick was willing to try. Accordingly I blindfolded Dr. Dick and then brought out a picture of a baby being born by Caesarian section. In the picture the baby had been partially delivered. I placed this in front of Dr. Dick and asked him to run his fingers over the sheet of paper and simply tell me whatever came to him.
Meanwhile Dr. James was pacing up and down the room, very agitated, and insisting that it was ridiculous and impossible. It just couldn't be done. He kept addressing Dr. Dick and telling him he couldn't do it.
In this rather disturbed atmosphere Dr. Dick and I were proceeding with the experiment. He moved his fingers over the picture. He said he felt bare skin. He outlined the area where the baby was in the picture. As he continued to move over the picture he outlined the area where the mother was. These were the two objects in the picture. The rest of it was simply draped sheets.
When I took the blindfold off he was amazed that he had been absolutely correct. I wanted to try another picture but Dr. James was so agitated and distressed by a phenomenon that did not belong within the safe structure of his own mental outlook, we had to desist.
Some weeks later Dr Dick told me that he and his mother had always had a very close telepathic rapport. On many occasions when he picked up the phone to call her long distance he found the operator on his line putting through a call from her. He was always aware when there was some need to get in touch with his mother and when he did so his impression was confirmed. He had not been too surprised when the experiment tumed out as it did at my office in New York. However, he had felt it was best not to further distress his colleague, Dr. James.
