The History of Psychic Tools Psychic tools have a history going back thousands of years. We attempt to explain the evolution of these "devices" as well as show the connections between each of them. From the "pendulum board" used by Pythagoras through the most recent inventions.

Thomas Alva Edison and the Spirit World Thomas Edison is certainly regarded as one of the great minds of the ages. He has over 3,000 patents to his credit, more than anyone in history. Thomas Edison invented, among thousands of other things, the light bulb, the phonograph and many other "miracles of science" which we take foregranted today. Did you know that he spent years of his life building a machine which could communicate with the dead???

The "Ouija Board" - Fact, Fiction & Folklore The "ouija board" has been accused of many things. Some claim it's a direct link to the spirit world. Others would have you think that if you as much as went near one, you'd open the gates to hell and become posessed, just like the little girl in "The Exorcist..." We explore the FACTS and let the reader judge for themselves...

Do Spirits Write Books??? Via automatism and seances, many books have been published which credit supernatural entities with the authorship. We offer a synopsis of several well known, as well as nearly completely obscure books. We begin with discussing the "Seth Books", certainly the most famous of the lot. We also explore another book by well-resepected authors. In their book, they report to have communicated with famous "ghosts" including George Washington. Although this book is from 1882, they have some interesting things to report from entities living on Mars...

The Truth About Automatic Writing Automatic Writing is a powerful ability which most of us have yet to explore. We examine the evidence on hand and attempt to explain this phenomenon as well as potentials which are hardly explored.

Ouija Boards in the Movies... Psychic tools such as the "ouija board" have made their way into the spotlight many times. We reminisce about some of our favorites.

Automatic Writing & The Supernatural

Some documented incidents of automatic writing include other aspects of the supernatural.

In the early 1900's, famed society belle Marguerite Du Pont Lee began claiming that she was taking eerie spirit photographs at the direction of messages that she received through automatic writing. Lee, the daughter of the Delaware Du Pont's, was of impeccable lineage, spotless reputation and apparent good sensibilities.

After her friend, Episcopal minister Kemper  Bocock died in 1904, Lee began having episodes of automatic writing that she credited as coming from Bocock. The writings told her to take up photography and she did, usually placing a portrait of herself or Bocock in a chair and taking pictures of it. Some of the resulting photos showed inexplicable blobs of light and spectral faces, some blurry and others distinct. Some of them looked like the dead minister.

About that same time, Lee started having her photograph taken by William M. Keeler, an alleged spirit photography expert. With Keeler's assistance, Bocock's appearances increased dramatically and soon there were photos of him dancing, preaching and more. Concerned, Lee contacted James H, Hyslop, a philosopher and psychical investigator in 1919. He stated that he did not believe that there was any fraud involved with Lee's photos, but with Keeler he could not be certain.

Hyslop passed away in 1920 and Walter F. Prince began looking into the case. By this time, the Keeler photographs numbered over 4,000 and Prince had little doubt that devious methods were at work.

Although deferential to Lee, Prince clearly regarded Keeler as a fraud and noted that in all of the Bocock photographs, the minister's head appeared facing about one-third off center, right or left, or almost in profile, right or left. The two poses were amazingly like the only two existing photographs of Bocock while he was alive.

Prince also observed that the static Bocock head was often at odds with the alarmingly movable Bocock body -- which appeared variously as fat, thin, tall, short, long-necked or no-necked. The photos, Prince believed, were obviously faked.

Unfortunately though, because of the obvious trickery involved with Keeler's photos, we will never know what became of the photos taken by Lee -- which may have portrayed real phenomena!
