DR ALEXANDER IMICH CELEBRATES
By Dr Ken Saari.
I just thought I would share with you a just a little bit
of what I experienced this past weekend with this most remarkable
and extraordinary man, Alexander Imich PhD.
February 4, 2012 I had the great honor, joy, and privilege
of spending the entire afternoon with the worlds most dedicated
and oldest parapsychologist – Dr. Alexander Imich.
It was his birthday and just happened to be turning 109
years old. He is obviously the oldest and I say that he
is also the most dedicated because he has been studying,
researching, experimenting, and writing about all aspects
of parapsychology and the paranormal for the past 78 years.
Although his PhD. was in zoology, after the war, he came
to the states from Poland, lived in New York, and worked
as a chemist.
His real interest though for the past 78 years, has been
What a joy it was to see him again and to be with him on
his birthday. Having the same interests, we talked incessantly
all afternoon about afterlife evidence, physical mediumship,
ectoplasm, psychokinesis, telepathy, ufos, extra terrestials,
Uri Geller, etc., etc., etc. We talked for several hours
nonstop until we were both physically and mentally exhausted.
What is most amazing about this man is his completely insatiable
appetite for knowledge about mediumship, the afterlife,
and all of the aforementioned subjects.
has the zeal and enthusiasm for knowledge of someone 90
years younger. He also realizes how vitally important it
is that we, as a society, should learn as much about these
subjects as possible because, as he puts it: “it can
help us individually and can help the human race tremendously”.
One of his main life long goals was to try to convince the
government that they should provide more funding for paranormal
research. Unfortunately, as we all know, this has not been
the case. This saddens him as it does me.
A few months ago, fourteen boxes of records, files, documents,
and correspondence with scientists were taken from his residence
by the University of Manitoba, and according to Alex, they
are going to be placed in some kind of museum or research
We looked at dozens and dozens of great photos of ectoplasmic
materializations and his eyes would light up as mine always
do upon seeing these earth shattering photos. We also discussed
the current state of physical mediumship and the phenomena
that some of present day physical mediums are producing.
He then pulled out an entire drawer with dozens of bent,
twisted and distorted metal objects like knives, forks,
and spoons. These, he said were bent and twisted mentally
by two gentlemen whom he knew well who both had highly developed
psycho-kinetic ability - Dr. Safwat Al Amin and Joseph Nuzzum.
Psychokinesis is the ability to move or deform inanimate
objects, such as forks and spoons mentally. He also displayed
several glass and plastic bottles that had never been opened
and contained objects that would be completely impossible
to insert through the small opening on the tops of these
bottles. He indicated that these feats of psychokinesis
were performed in front of him by both of these very gifted
One of the gifted ‘psychics’ whom he would
see fairly regularly and knew very well was Dr. Safwat.
Sadly, when I asked about Dr. Safwat (whom I had met on
two separate occasions) he told me that he had passed two
months ago. He told me that Safwat was in his sixties and
passed during an operation.
Alex told me that during World War 2 he had lost over
thirty members of his family in concentration camps in Poland
during the holocaust. He told me that he still thinks about
He also told me voluntarily that he believes the secret
to his longevity is that he eats very little. He pointed
out a study which showed that mice that are fed less live
longer. I also happen to know that he is and has been a
big proponent of nutritional supplementation. For many years
he took a host of micronutrients, phytonutrients, antioxidents,
vitamins, minerals, etc. and was even interviewed by the
Life Extension Institute.
Once again, it was a great to see Alex again and be with
him on his birthday. I look forward to my next visit, which
will be very soon, and our ongoing discussions about the
most important subject of all – survival after what
