A description of the experience
Psychics : facts and theories – M J Savage
I add one experiment of my own. I sat one day in a heavy stuffed arm-chair. The psychic sat beside me, and haying his hand on the back of the chair, gradually raised it.
Immediately I felt and saw myself, chair and all, lifted into the air at least one foot from the floor. There was no uneven motion implying any sense of effort on the part of the lifting force ; and I was gently lowered again to the carpet. This was in broad light, in a hotel parlor, and in presence of a keen-eyed lawyer friend.
I could plainly watch the whole thing. No man living could have lifted me in such a position, and besides, I saw that the psychic made not the slightest apparent effort. Nor was there any machinery or preparation of any kind.
My companion, the lawyer, on going away, speaking in reference to the whole sitting, said :
" I've seen enough evidence to hang every man in the State — enough to prove anything excepting this ! "
