Sunday 12th November 2006 Sydney – Physical Circle
with David Thompson and Circle of the Silver Cord
This evening at approx 8pm I sat with David Thompson and
Circle of the Silver Cord for a demonstration of Physical
Firstly I was checked (just like at an airport) for anything
I shouldn't be taking into the Sitting eg torch, metal objects,
mobile phone etc. In turn I watched the other Circle Members
I was then asked to check David's Cardigan, material gag
and the cable ties that are used to secure him throughout
the Sitting. I checked the chair he sits on - it was heavy,
wooden and solid. The arms did not move and neither did
the legs, the seat or the back of the chair.
I also checked the room. The room was a spare bedroom with
the windows covered in cardboard and the curtains closed,
rather like a photographic darkroom set up. I could find
no trapdoors and no hidden speakers. The light bulb had
been removed from the fitting in the ceiling. Six chairs
for the sitters were placed in the room. There was also
a box containing a red light globe, a wooden plaque coated
in luminous paint and a cone shaped trumpet with luminous
tape on each end.
I watched as one of the Sitters secured David to the chair.
He was strapped at the wrists and cable ties were placed
through these and cut off short. I tried to pull his hands
through but it was impossible. His legs were also strapped
against the chair legs. Cable ties were fed through the
cardigan material next to each button on David's cardigan
- Approx 6 cable ties were used on the front of his cardigan
from the bottom to the top. Finally the gag was placed in
his mouth and tied at the back of his head. A cable tie
also secured this. The pliers needed to cut the cable ties
were given to me and I placed them under my feet so I could
feel them at all times. I was totally satisfied that David
Thompson could not move the chair and he certainly could
not move out of it - he was totally immobilised.
We all took our places on the chairs provided and the door
was then sealed shut with dark-proofing material. There
was no light in the room – light is very dangerous
to a Physical Medium. One of the Sitters turned on the music.
We sang to several songs and at the end of one song, I noticed
a distinct change in the atmosphere and knew immediately
that an Etherian had entered the room. I can liken this
sensation to when someone has come up behind you and you
sense they are there but you cannot see them. William then
spoke to us all including me – he wanted to know my
name. We all held hands and he materialised. William walked
over to me and spoke very close to my face and then placed
his large hand on the left side of my head very gently.
If this had been one of the Sitters pretending to be William
then how would they see me in the dark to do this? It was
done with precision.
Timothy was next to come through. He greeted me and asked
my name. He then asked me if I had spoken to “dead”
people before to which I replied no! We were then asked
to put some music on. “Georgie Girl” was the
first track. To my total delight and amusement Timothy picked
up the trumpet and banged it on our heads in time to the
music. He tapped it my knees, on my head and then very precisely
and gently flicked it on my right nostril. You would need
to be able to see in the dark in order to do this. We were
all holding hands so we knew where each other were. The
trumpet moved around the room at a very fast rate –
up to the ceiling, back down to the floor and all around
the room and then up and down to the music. We put on an
Irish jig and the trumpet moved even quicker to music. I
have to say this was so comical – we all roared with
Next, Timothy picked up the luminous plaque and brought
it over to me. I could see his fingers wiggling on the plaque.
They were real fingers and fairly small. All Sitters were
holding hands. Timothy then felt my fingers of my left hand
with his fingers. His fingers were just like feeling anyone’s
fingers – they felt and moved as if he was still alive.
They were not cold or spooky – just normal.
Louis Armstrong came through and greeted me. I could hear
him coming towards me – his voice moved from the other
side of the room and kept coming closer. I was asked to
keep speaking to him to help him come towards me. He took
my hand and shook it. So, I have shaken the hand of Louis
Armstrong – or at least of an Etherian that claims
to be Louis Armstrong! He sang Wonderful World in his deep
William spoke throughout the Sitting on the Environment
and on AIDS and Cancer with some very interesting comments.
The Sitting came to an end after 1.5 hours. After the Closing
and the music had stopped, the red light was put on. We
all gasped when we saw David Thompson in his chair. The
chair had been facing us when the lights were put out. He
was now with his back to us with his cardigan turned round
so that the buttons complete with the cable ties were up
his back. This meant that the cardigan had somehow been
taken off David and been placed back on him, still intact.
David was then given water and some time to recover.
My conclusions to what I had witnessed are as follows:
1. I could not detect any fraud.
2. I am satisfied that all the voices, which were very clear,
were different from each other and that no one in the group
was responsible for them, least of all David who was gagged
throughout the duration.
3. I witnessed conclusive proof of materialised beings that
once lived on earth. I sensed them, spoke to them, touched
them and laughed with them.
4. It would be impossible, unless you had night vision goggles
on, to touch the Sitters with a cardboard trumpet in the
precise and gentle way that Timothy did. I saw no such equipment
brought into the room.
5. It would have been impossible for David to get out of
the chair and turn it around and then tie himself up again.
He could not have got the ties undone without retrieving
the pliers from under my feet. He certainly could not have
got them undone in the first place.
If you are reading this and think that it was all a big
con and that you think that I, along with 6 other sane individuals
are either deluded, making it up or gullible then consider
this; I would like you or someone else you know to replicate
this exact same phenomena under the same conditions. Also,
ask yourself why would David and the six regular Sitters
bother spending their Sunday evenings stuck in a small,
stuffy room for no payment. If it were fraud, why would
David Thompson bother to sit in a chair and be bound and
gagged for 1.5 hours for the last 10 years? Frankly, I would
rather be watching TV or enjoying a nice glass of wine in
the garden! Unless, of course, it is real… unless
people, that have died some time ago, are actually materialising
and speaking to us to show us all living things survival
“death”. I think I too would give up my Sunday
evenings to experience that. Wouldn’t you?
