GWEN TATE MEMORIAL LECTURE – Alan Murdie – Letters from the dead – evidence of survival in poltergeist cases
Poltergeists have been recorded across the world for centuries, with many genuine cases seeming to arise from incidents of psychokinesis (PK) generated by living persons. However, a smaller but significant number of poltergeist cases raise the possibility of the involvement of discarnate entities. Such cases can involve extensive written and spoken communications which claim to originate from deceased humans. Alan Murdie assesses some examples of such cases, with particular reference to the thousands of letters and communications attributed to a poltergeist in Battersea, London, between 1956-1968, together with the implications for survival research.
