The Scole Afterlife Study

The Scole afterlife study was a series of experiments conducted by a group of mediums and researchers in the 1990s, aiming to establish evidence for the existence of life after death. The experiments involved various forms of physical phenomena, such as lights, sounds, images, and objects appearing or moving in a sealed basement room. The study claimed to have received messages and images from deceased personalities, as well as information about the nature of the afterlife and the origin of the universe.

The study was led by Robin and Sandra Foy, who invited two mediums, Alan and Diana Bennett, to join them in their home in Scole, Norfolk, England. They formed the Scole Experimental Group, which later expanded to include other members and guests. The group conducted over 500 sessions in five years and invited several independent observers and investigators to witness and document the phenomena. Some of the observers included Montague Keen, Arthur Ellison, and David Fontana, who were members of the Society for Psychical Research (SPR), and Professor Archie Roy, a physicist, and astronomer from Glasgow University.
The study generated a lot of interest and controversy in the paranormal community and the media. Some of the phenomena were captured on audio and video recordings, as well as on photographic film and Polaroid pictures. The group claimed that the phenomena were produced by a team of spirit communicators, who called themselves the Spirit Team. The Spirit Team allegedly used a device called the Germanium Receptor, which was a crystal attached to a wire, to facilitate the energy transfer between the two realms. The group also claimed that the Spirit Team provided them with scientific and philosophical information, such as the existence of multiple dimensions, the origin of life, and the nature of consciousness.

The study was met with skepticism and criticism by some researchers and skeptics, who questioned the validity and reliability of the evidence and the methods used by the group. Some of the criticisms included the lack of proper controls, the possibility of fraud, the influence of suggestions, and the inconsistency and inaccuracy of the information received. The study was also challenged by some religious groups, who considered the experiments to be dangerous and unethical.

The study was published in a book titled The Scole Report, which was written by Keen, Ellison, and Fontana, and endorsed by the SPR. The book presented the findings and the analysis of the study, as well as the arguments for and against its authenticity. The book concluded that the study provided some of the best evidence for the survival of consciousness after death and that the phenomena were beyond the scope of conventional explanations. The book also acknowledged the limitations and challenges of the study and called for further research and investigation.

The study was also featured in a documentary film titled Scole: The Afterlife Experiment, which was produced by Tim Coleman and Dan Drasin. The film showed some of the footage and photographs of the phenomena, as well as the interviews with the participants and the observers. The film claimed to be the definitive proof of an afterlife and to challenge the materialistic worldview of science and society.

Here is another documentary that shows some of the evidence.

The Scole afterlife study remains one of the most controversial and intriguing paranormal experiments ever conducted and has sparked a lot of debate and discussion among believers and skeptics. The study has also inspired and influenced other researchers and groups to conduct similar experiments, and to explore the possibility of communication with the spirit world. The study has also raised a lot of questions and implications about the nature of reality, the meaning of life, and the destiny of the soul.

I invite everyone who is interested in the paranormal and the afterlife, to check out the videos and the evidence. The range of potential evidence is very wide and intriguing. These are the type of experiments paranormal investigators should be doing and not just running to haunted locations for 2 hours for a quick thrill.
