Last week's report

9th January 2009
We're safely home again and endeavoring to catch up with a huge backlog of a few hundred emails in between enjoying gorgeous summer weather (34 degrees C- some 90F) at our local Dee Why beach (see picture left) in the Northern Beaches of Sydney Australia. Quite a change from the near zero degrees of falling snow and ice of a few days ago in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Apologies again for the late reply to your emails. All books ordered were posted out last Tuesday.

COMMENTARY: As 2009 begins I am amazed at the number of highly credible scientists, doctors and other professional people who are going public with their experiences of the paranormal and of the afterlife. This week we are featuring a highly credible nuclear physicist who now finds the climate safe enough to talk about his eight years of scientific exploration of out of body states and journeys into the future. Media interest in the afterlife continues to expand exponentially and this week we have news of a wonderful new DVD on the Afterlife about to be released. My esteemed colleague Michael Tymn's new book which outlines some of the most brilliant research on the afterlife which has never been challenged has also become available (see below). And what has been the response of the closed-minded skeptics who refuse to even read the evidence?

There is no attempt to rebut the brilliant experimental and theoretical work of Dr Robert Neil Boyd and Dr Adrian Klein. No attempt to come to grips with the new field of consciousness studies. No attempt to account for the brilliant results of highly gifted mediums such James Van Praagh, John Edward, Allison Dubois and Lisa Williams. Instead they fall back on their old catch cry-"it's all fraud" or "it's cold reading". Youtube is full of video attacks by uninformed skeptics who take readings by a medium out of context. They feature bits of the reading that seem to be very general and could constitute "cold reading" but editing out subsequent sections which are highly specific and contain incredible details that absolutely confirm to the recipient that they are indeed in contact with their loved one. There are many low-level skeptics attacking highly gifted psychics using vicious pernicious propaganda which unfortunately "poisons the well" for some people who are not informed. In my new weekly series "objections overruled" I will be showing why these attacks are neither acceptable nor legitimate.

OBJECTIONS OVERRULED! These below are some of the most common objections raised by the skeptics about the evidence for the afterlife I received in the last 20 years. I will be including one objection every week for the next twenty weeks. For any feedback on this specific issue feel free to contact me on 2008@victorzammit.com

OBJECTION No. 2. (Here's a quote by one of the leading closed minded skeptics in the United States): "Death is a part of life and pretending that the dead are gathering in a television studio in New York to talk twaddle with a former ballroom dance instructor is an insult to the intelligence and humanity of the living." Michael Shermer, founder of Skeptic magazine and executive director of the Skeptics Society trying to denigrate gifted medium John Edward.

Victor: This objection is immediately overruled because the statement:
- is an expression of a personal subjective belief,
- has no objective empirical substance,
- is highly prejudicial and 'self serving,'
- has no probative value,
- is highly speculative without evidence,
- fundamentally lacks legitimate 'authority,'
- is a 'denial' - instead of an analytical rebuttal of the afterlife evidence,
- is not specifically scientifically based and
- is an attempt to use ridicule from a position of extreme ignorance about afterlife evidence the skeptic shows he has not studied.

A judge would have no problems at all over-ruling this objection.

Notice carefully, this M. Shermer totally ignores the vast amount of empirically based afterlife evidence for mediumship (outlined in my book with 23 areas of afterlife hard core evidence) and the results of extensive university controlled tests that brilliant medium John Edward was subjected to - see:-
Beischel, J., & Schwartz, G.E. (2007).
"Anomalous information reception by research mediums demonstrated using a novel triple-blind protocol." EXPLORE: The Journal of Science & Healing, 3 (1), 23-27 ]

As above stated consistent with Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), M Shermer's mind automatically deletes the evidence. His mind makes Michael pretend - and makes him delude himself the afterlife does not exist - because the evidence for the afterlife is inconsistent with the skeptic's cherished beliefs. He rationalizes his negative beliefs to avoid anxiety and the pain.

So, it is M. Shermer who is "talking twaddle" ignoring the substantive empirical evidence for the afterlife which more that sixty five per cent of the world accepts. It shows he is unable or incompetent or unwilling to properly and empirically rebut this afterlife evidence - to show where, when, how and why the expressly stated evidence for the afterlife cannot be relied upon. His omission to do so is an insult to all those intelligent people who want to know if the afterlife evidence can ever be discounted- since the empirically elicited afterlife evidence has never been rebutted.

has excelled as a working scientist, a professional physicist dedicated to pushing back the frontiers of cutting edge technology, large-system simulation, technology development and integration, and complex system vulnerability and risk analysis. Presently, and for the past 20 years, he has been at the heart of developing US missile defense systems. He also began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe's laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. Campbell has been a serious explorer of the frontiers of reality, mind, consciousness, and psychic phenomena for the last thirty five years.

Tom Campbell is an open minded skeptic who became convinced of the afterlife only after extensive personal experience. In this extraordinary important interview he talks about his eight years of out of body explorations which included exploring out of body dimensions which he could authenticate with a companion and moving into the future.

In February of 2003, Tom Campbell published the My Big TOE trilogy which represents the results and conclusions of his scientific exploration of the nature of existence. This overarching model of reality, mind, and consciousness merges physics with metaphysics, explains the paranormal as well as the normal, places spirituality within a scientific context, and provides direction for those wishing to personally experience an expanded awareness of All That Is. As a logic-based work of science, My Big TOE has no basis in belief, dogma, creed, or any unusual assumptions. By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what's real (exists independently and externally) from what's imaginary or illusory; Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.

ALLISON DUBOIS of television ‘MEDIUM’ fame sends us a special message - Allison, one of the most loved and respected mediums in the world to-day, emailed Saturday 3rd January 09: Allison is asking readers in the United States who may have a formal dress they never use to donate it to a good cause. She writes:
“I have recently been drawn to a charity that helps young girls in need. The Florence Crittenton foundation is dedicated to enriching the lives of young people. One of the ways they do this is by acquiring formal dresses that well deserving young girls can wear to Prom to feel like the belle of the ball on that special night. Since these girls don’t have the means to achieve Prom night without your generosity I’m asking anyone with a pretty dress or retired bridesmaids dress to donate it to the Florence Crittenton Foundation. I am donating my dress from the Golden Globe Awards, my friend Adrianne Curry (actress/model) is also donating a dress to the foundation so the girls can feel like the stars that we know they will be. If you’d like to make a difference in a young girls life helping to create a memory and to let them know they matter to you, you can send your dress donation to Attention: Lory Lasica at 715 W. Mariposa St. Phoenix, AZ. 85013 or she can be reached at (602) 274-7318. Thank you for taking the time to touch the lives of wonderful girls who appreciate it more than you will ever know. Allison Dubois.”

Path11 Productions is in the final stages of putting together an excellent documentary on the Afterlife. The producers interviewed 12 experts in the field of metaphysics in the attempt to gather more information about the afterlife and to begin to try and find answers to some of the big picture questions that no one really has an answer to like “What happens when we die? Does the soul live on? Is there an afterlife?” It is the filmmakers hope that this documentary will begin to take the fear out of dying and to offer human beings the idea that we are more than our physical body.
Release Date: February 12th, 2009
Length: 120 minutes View the trailer.

WHAT HAPPENS TO A CLOSED-MINDED SKEPTIC AFTER DEATH? Silver Birch, an afterlife entity with high credibility was asked “What were the feelings of the famous author H.G. Wells, an anti-Spiritualist and a life-long Rationalist, when he passed on and found himself in a spirit world in which he did not believe - will go to a dark realm?”

Afterlife intelligence, SB: “Wells … is a great soul, unfortunately blinded by a large intellect … the spirit life was a tremendous shock to individuals like Wells and they had to face processes of ‘adjustment.’ It is a complete overthrow of a lifetime of philosophy and they cannot understand it …. They think there must be something wrong with the universe because it does not agree with their conception, which they had ‘proved’ most ‘logically’ and most ‘scientifically.’ And so the ‘adjustments’ have to be made and there are long argument and discussions.”

In The Articulate Dead, Michael E. Tymn examines several of the best mediums of yesteryear and the scientific research surrounding them. A number of very intriguing stories unfold, including spirits directing an archaeologist in the uncovering of the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, spirits leading a researcher to crosses buried by American Indians, a deceased author completing his books through a medium, a Titanic victim coming back to tell about his new environment, and an afterlife researcher continuing his work after dying, to name just a few. Wendy and I are still in the process of writing a formal review but take it from me this is an extraordinary book which combines excellent research with an easy to read engaging style. Obtain a copy now from Galde Press.

This week Dr Adrian Klein and Dr Robert Neil Boyd show us that Life involves highly complex degrees of organizational properties conveyed to the target system from a pattern generating source, which is external to it. Mainstream developmental biology can explain neither how a particular group of cells are able to respond to discrete biochemical signals and initiate a self-organizing process under their triggering effect, nor how such signals may perfectly correspond to future functional requirements which are expected from the reacting cells, collectively. They claim that
experimental results thus achieved seem to strongly confirm Sheldrake's tenet of a collective "morphic field of mankind", a true understanding of which leads to a complete and unconditioned refutation of Darwin's (phylogenetic) evolution theory. Read this week's article Restoring a Subquantum Morphogenesis Approach.

SHARON COHEN, medical intuitive, NDEr, dowser...and a gifted healer. Sharon Cohen received degrees from Loyola University in biology, physiology and dental hygiene. While working as a dental hygienist, she found she was able to smell disease states on her patient's breath, often before they were diagnosed. After surviving a near-death experience, she found herself extremely intuitive as well as very sensitive to energy. She was able to merge consciousness and understand the "truth" of many issues and dis-ease states. Read more... Sharon will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the very active and well organised Chicago branch of the International Association for Near Death Experiences (IANDS) on Saturday, January 10, 2009.

CHICAGO IANDS began in May 1998, to provide a support and study group for those who have had a Near-Death Experience or are interested in the subject. It is one of many Friends of IANDS groups around the world.
It is now estimated that there are over 25,000,000 near-death survivors in the United States, which is about 10% of the US population. These experiences often leave the experiencer with an expanded sense of reality which can often be better understood by sharing with others. Talking about an experience and/or listening to others talk about their experiences has a profound healing effect on many who participate. Read more...

While we were in Portland Oregon over Christmas we visited Powell's Bookshop, the world’s biggest bookshop for new and used books of all kinds. Naturally I headed for the extensive metaphysical/ afterlife/afterdeath section. There were a number of familiar books – including early editions of Mark Macy’s brilliant books, James Van Praagh and many, many others. Explore Powell’s Bookshop on line.

caught my eye (by Alpha – Penguin Group U.S.) For those starting out and for those who want a lifetime reference about the afterlife Diane’s book is a gem. It provides a 315 page overview arranged under four headings: Religion and the afterlife, Portals to the Light, What do Dead People Do? and The Return to the Planet. She also has an appendix where she outlines a ten day plan to teach people to make their own direct contact with a departed loved one. Read more...

Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), founded in 1973 by astronaut Edgar Mitchell (pictured left) , is a nonprofit organization located in Northern California that conducts and sponsors leading-edge research into the potentials and powers of consciousness—including perceptions, beliefs, attention, intention, and intuition and serve individual and collective transformation. The Shift in Action Program is a member benefit providing hundreds of hours of audio downloads, video segments, weekly teleseminar calls and international networking. For a limited time, you can explore the program for a trial month for only $1, which includes the Living Deeply book, and features the deepest insights of 60 major spiritual leaders. A Living Deeply Practice CD then helps you put this insight into practice. Read more...

We very thankfully received a number of emails over the holidays very similar to this one:

“Dear Victor & Wendy Zammit:Thank you for your newsletter. I found and have read it during this year 2008. It has brought, perhaps, more encouragement and hope into my life than nearly anything else this year. Blessings on you and yours for this effort to reach out to others around the world and provide vital information and support. Peace Be With You, Jay D., Alpine, Texas.”
(Thank you Jay and we thank all those very nice people who sent us these very encouraging wishes.)

MATERIALIZATION CORNER - BE CAREFUL OF QUACKS ATTACKING SEANCES: A colleague alerted me to a video on youtube where some alleged ‘illusionist’ is attacking all materialization séances claiming they rely on simple tricks. When it comes to seances, these are ignorant amateurs who try to break into the illusionist profession and try to get attention, to get publicity and notoriety. What did this fraudulent quack 'illusionist' Ian get WRONG? Plenty- with David Thompson's séances:
- music is played to raise vibrations,
- invoking divine protection is mandatory,
- the medium is tied not only in two places but in some TWENTY THREE places,
- the medium’s legs are tied to the chair,
- the medium’s mouth is covered tightly by a cloth gag,
- independent investigators inspect the chair, shoes, hands, feet,

- sometimes female voices are heard,
- materialized loved ones identify sitters giving information that nobody apart from the sitter knows,
- materialized spirits give information later found to be correct,
- materialized loved ones recognize sitters and recall incidents when living on earth.
- investigator is allowed to hold the gag tied around the medium’s mouth and spirit voices are still heard.
- sitters in weekly home circle séances do NOT pay money.

Do NOT be fooled by these quack amateur 'illusionists' when it comes to materialisation seances. Seek professional assistance from Ros and Dennis at Zerdin Phenomenal or from Chris, Circle leader of the Circle of the Silver Cord - see link next item below.

A CHANCE TO EXPERIENCE DEEP TRANCE MEDIUMSHIP - the experience of a lifetime! Those of you who are serious about experiencing mediumship may like to take the opportunity to attend a deep trance demonstration with David Thompson. David is of the most gifted physical/materialization mediums in the world today. He will be holding a special public session in Sydney on Saturday January 31st at Crows Nest. You will have a chance to converse with David's guide and friend from the afterlife, William (pictured) who takes over David's body completely. He is able to coat David's larynx with ectoplasm so that his voice is identical to when he materializes. I can assure you that if you attend and ask William a question or two, guaranteed, you will be conversing with an afterlife intelligence. For further information ... Read more...
Listen to this short recording in which William talks about his aim- to prove that there is life after death. Listen (5 mins)... Read Transcript. Please note that this is NOT a materialization session and will not be held in darkness.

YOUR LEGAL QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY VICTOR ZAMMIT: 'SERVICE TO MY REGULAR READERS AND TO THE COMMUNITY': whilst this has nothing to do with afterlife matters, over the many years of doing afterlife research, I received many questions from my regular readers who needed legal advice but did not have the money to go to a lawyer. Accordingly, I have put on the website a special section for the many legal questions/answers (e.g. negligence, defamation, police matters, murder, assault, divorce, Wills, probate, property, claims against insurance co's., leases, marriage rights, medical assault, police radars - and for other, click on archives on the blog) for for my regular readers - and for general readership and information.

BEQUESTS: It is vitally important that professional accredited and registered afterlife researchers be given funding so that they can help the world understand that there is an afterlife. After you have provided for your family in your will consider making a bequest which will bring about ‘LIGHT’ on a global level after you’ve gone. So far, we can highly recommend the following legally registered organizations who will use your funding to benefit humanity:

* The Forever Family Foundation
* Sonia Rinaldi's IPATI- Brazilian based research on ITC
* The American Association of Electronic Voice Phenomena
* The Windbridge Institute for applied research
Mark Macy's World ITC- American based research on ITC
* Rhine Research Centre- Institute for Parapsychology
In the future we will include other registered organizations which are doing afterlife research. Please email for details.

From previous weeks - the search goes on:

: Sadly as yet there is no category of paranormal research and consciousness studies in the Nobel Prizes so I’d like to invite you submit your nominations for the award of an ‘honorary’ Nobel Prize for Research into the Paranormal. Please nominate anyone who is extending science to show the world that the paranormal has an empirical objective and repeatable basis and has nothing to do with beliefs. We have had a few nominations but we still have time to highlight the work of all the contemorary scientists who are pioneering the most important field in human knowledge.

SOMETHING INSPIRATIONAL, SOMETHING MEMORABLE As we approach the inauguration of President Obama you might like to revisit the spectacular anti-war movie HAIR which caused an international sensation when it was released. Reports say the movie influenced millions of people around the world. This clip of the song LET THE SUNSHINE IN contains one of the most moving images in the film as hippie George Berger, who has temporarily taken the place in the army barracks of his conscripted friend Claude, marches into the bowels on the military transport plane taking him and thousands of other fine young men to their deaths in Vietnam. Enjoy the song and the longing for a better world it captures.
