I cant find the reference right now to the nasa scientist, except a part that says he was beyond satisfied as to the legitimacy of the experiment. But
i have a copy/pase (sorry it is a bit long) that describes how they went about conducting their experiments, and the measures taken to try to keep
tampering out of the question:
"We were, (until April 1996) receiving what can only be described as 'individual' or 'separate' images, that appeared at intervals along the
length of the films. These images were extremely diverse in content, some from many different areas of our planet and some from what has been
described as other areas of existence or other dimensions of life! (perhaps an after life) ? To me, the important thing here is, although these early
images were a type of communication in themselves (and of course a very important one) you always had the feeling that 'they' were showing us what
could be achieved, sometimes giving us glimpses into another world. The communication itself seemed to be limited to some extent to a Pictorial and
sometimes abstract form, in other words, mainly pictures and seldom words. This is in no way a criticism, but an observation of what was happening, up
until this point in time.
It was, to our astonishment, during a session in April 1996 that all that changed. That particular experimental session was in itself very different
to our normal sessions, as we had three eminent gentlemen from the S.P.R. (Society for Psychical Research) as our guests. There were other experiments
in Progress at that time (some experiments are over a period more than one session) and we had of course hoped for a successful result on the Polaroid
film, but none of us were prepared for what occurred on that occasion. At that time, for security purposes we were sealing the films in their
containers and asking our guests to sign over the seals. Some would even place secret marks of their own on the seals without telling us, something in
fact we welcomed in the desire for greater evidentiallity. After this memorable session the seals were checked and the container opened by one of our
guests, the film remaining in their possession from then on. The processor was prepared and checked and the film placed in position ready to be
developed. The unit was then closed and processing took place, this usually only takes about two minutes after which the unit bleeps on completion.
When this film was removed from the processor and examined, it would be a gross understatement to say that a tremendous amount of excitement broke
out, as everyone wanted to see what had occurred. On closer inspection it became obvious that due to the quantity of information on this film, that
notes should be taken, in detail for research purposes, prior to having the film sent away to a photographic laboratory for copying and enlarging. (It
is our policy now to have all films copied as quickly as possible due to the fragile nature of these Polaroid films). As everyone studied the film
hoping to understand, even if only a small part of what had been written on the film, one of our distinguished guests commented "I think this is
history in the making". I'm sure you can all imagine the excitement that evening. None of us there, I am sure, will ever forget it.
The film used was a Polaroid Polapan slide film, which has produced white (lettering) on a blue background. The affected area covers approximately 13
inches (330mm) in length and is more or less covered in writing over this area. The words (all legible) are written lengthways, not across the film.
Here it is, in order as it appears on the film;
a) A quotation in French ;
"Ce n'est que le premier pas des coute" ('this is but the first step')
b) An eight character word in Greek about 1 1/4 inches (32mm) long.
c) A six-line poem about 8 inches(203mm) long.
This refers to the planets, Earth and the Sun.
) Greek characters (22) approx. 2 1/4 inches (54mm) long.
) A signature, written in reverse and yet still it could be authenticated.
f) Another signature, again in reverse but as yet not identified
This film became known as the 'Diotima' film."
taken from the scole website. Again, not saying this is all 100% true, but it is interesting reading. if it is a hoax, it is an elaborate and
expensive one, and many experts will have been made fools of!
