R-101 is a case presented in the book “no living person could have known”. Also included in this very small but interesting book are several other cases that highly suggest communication from the other side.

It appears that this book is no longer available on the internet under used books.

"No Living Person Could have Known" by W.F.Neech can be requested in the 'Wants' section of, for example, Abebooks and when it becomes available they will notify you.

Neech also wrote "Death is he Life" the story of the famous medium, Lillian Bailey, who gave sittings to members of the Royal Family.

Michael P - the R-101 case is famous in Spiritualist literature.

The correct title of the book by W.F.Neech should be "Death Is Her Life".

Charming title.

Some excellent research her -I'm saving up for the hardback.

And?...although the case is famous as alleged evidence of survival it's strange that Eileen Garrett makes no mention of it in her autobiography "My Life" published in 1939.

I am not sure if this is relevant to Zerdini’s comment but I have read somewhere that ironically as it may sound Eileen Garrett herself was not convinced of the survival of the human personality or the reality of the spirit world, in spite of providing one of the best single evidence for survival through the R-101 case. Perhaps this article on The Ethics of Mediumship may help clarity her position regarding her own gift:

In Eileen Garrett's book she discusses her introduction to mediumship... including how she started to develop physical mediumship and the production of ectoplasm but was encouraged by Hewat Mackenzie to drop it and to concentrate on her trance mediumship.

Who knows we might have had a first class materialisation medium in addition to a trance medium.

But...c'est la vie!

“In that early address to the S.P.R. Jung said that he saw "no proof whatever of the existence of real spirits, and until such proof is forthcoming I must regard this whole territory as an appendix to psychology."

This is apparently how Jung felt about the existence of real spirits and the validity of mediumship speaking to a group in 1919.

Jung also said:

"I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as fraud."

Carl Jung also said:

"I shall not commit the fashionable stupidity of regarding everything I cannot explain as a fraud."

and also asserted:

“Anyone who wants to know the human psyche will learn next to nothing from experimental psychology. He would be better advised to abandon exact science, put away his scholar's gown, bid farewell to his study, and wander with human heart throughout the world. There in the horrors of prisons, lunatic asylums and hospitals, in drab suburban pubs, in brothels and gambling-hells, in the salons of the elegant, the Stock Exchanges, socialist meetings, churches, revivalist gatherings and ecstatic sects, through love and hate, through the experience of passion in every form in his own body, he would reap richer stores of knowledge than text-books a foot thick could give him, and he will know how to doctor the sick with a real knowledge of the human soul.”

Carl Jung also said:
“Death is indeed a fearful piece of brutality.There is no sense in pretending otherwise. It is brutal, not only as a physical event but far more so psychically. However, from another point of view, death appears a joyful event. In the light of eternity, it is a wedding, a mysterium conjunctionis. The soul attains, as it were, its missing half. It achieves wholeness.”

Mystics like Paramahansa Ramakrishna help to explain this: "The Godhead … has become these two [God and the devotee] in order to enjoy Its own bliss. He made Himself manifest so that He might know Himself and enjoy His own Bliss, His own Fullness, through Self-Knowledge."

In metaphor, Sri Ramakrishna depicts God, or Shiva, meeting Himself in the moment of illumination: “When Siva realizes his own Self, He dances about in joy exclaiming, ‘What am I! What am I!’”

Jung died on June 6, 1961. His last recorded words were, "Let's have a really good red wine tonight."

As I read what you say, Zerdini, I'm half way through a particularly nice Pinot Noir.

Hope to hear from you tomorrow then,Ben!!
