Dr. David Jacobs has scientifically examined commonalities in accounts given by abductees of their experiences. Yet doing a scientific study of commonalities reported in the experiences of séance participants would be unlikely to yield any core truths about The Beyond. In both cases, that of extraterrestrials and of medium communications at séances, it is the source of the communication itself which is suspect. Likely to be involved in both cases are discarnate entities of a mischievous nature.
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “Aliens Are Trickster Beings”, published to YouTube on May 17, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 7 minutes and 24 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
A possible clue to the mystery of alleged Alien abductions was given in the previous Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry, Aliens Walk Among Us: “Sometimes the world of the ‘dead’ intersects the world of the living, suggests a character in the movie The Others, released in 2001. Beware of Loki, the trickster god from Norse mythology.” 
Might not the UFOs be an intersection with the supernatural? I delved into this possibility in my book, In Praise Of Cotton Mather, available from Lulu.com. 
There was a controversial person named Montague Summers (1880 – 1948), whose many books I recommend. Montague Summers warned against, among other things, the séance craze of his time. The persons involved in séances, known then as Spiritists, were inadvertently becoming affected by their contact with malevolent, discarnate entities. Warned Montague Summers:
As the Spiritism craze intensified in the latter 1800s, the doors of the lunatic asylums yawned wide. In 1877, a Dr. L.S. Forbes Winslow wrote, ‘Ten thousand unfortunate people are at the present time confined in lunatic asylums on account of having tampered with the supernatural.’ Early in the 20th Century, a Dr. W.H. Stoddart wrote, ‘In some cases the spiritualistic hallucinations so dominate the whole mental life that the condition amounts to insanity; and I can confirm Sir Bryan Donkin’s statement that spiritualistic inquiries tend to induce insanity.’ 
Dr. David Jacobs has been very scientific in his study of alleged abductees. He has checked and double-checked, and has found consistent commonalities in what his subjects have said.
But wouldn’t a similar study of commonalities among what séance participants had to say also reveal misleading “core truths” about The Beyond? The entities contacted during séances tend to be of a gross, materialist nature. Why are they still hanging around the earth plane, unless they are unduly attached to it?
Beware of contacts with Trickster Beings, whether they say they are the ghost of your old aunt Millie or are extraterrestrials having some deep purpose.
