There are small things in this crit I would concur with - I have never been happy for instance with the archetypal 'characters' that appear in seances like some form of music hall, for instance. And as usual the ban on infra-red cameras by the 'spirit team' plays into the hands of critics and sceptics. An issue I've taken up more than once with researchers. That said, Rogerson seems only to be able to cry 'fraud' as an explanation for it all and then no details of who among the team is supposed to have produced all these fake films and other evidence presented and why. Of course I understand if in the first place you are coming from a place of 'this is just not possible' - not too much focus will be placed on what we can learn about the universe, simply that it must all be baloney. Rather like the debunking of particular UFO incidents. the detractors seem delighted to tear apart a case but the big picture is rarely part of the operation. The fact that for 100 years or more greater minds than Rogerson's have been totally convinced by identical phenomena, hardly comes into the equation. All of them of course must have been hoaxed or deluded too. He obviously places no credence in personal experience - even the testimonies of Sheldrake, Fontana, Keen, etc that this stuff was real, has to be totally disregarded. I too have read the book and report on Scole, chatted to participants still reeling over their experiences and also attended a Scole study day in London. I have also had my fair share of seance events - materialised hands, voices from the air etc but reading this review I guess I must disregard my own convictions and accept I've also been hoodwinked and conned silly. John, please convey thanks to Mr Rogerson, for setting me straight. Dave Haith Listen to 'Strange Days...
