teleplasm

I think its relatively easy for people to accept something like telepathy or precognition or teleplasm because their willingness to believe doesnt cost them anything. It doesnt keep them awake nights. But the idea that the evil that men do lives after them is unsettling.

Selected frames from Albert Freiherr von Schrenck-Notzing’s cinematographic film taken on 13th of July 1913 of Stanisława P emitting oral ectoplasm. The bright flash from the photographic process caused the sensitive substance to retreat back into Stanisława, which is what you are viewing here. The complete film is archived at the University of Freiburg at the Institute of Parapsychology.

This particular film shows a more agonizing effect on the medium as compared to an earlier film archived HERE.
