The paranormal phenomena of 'The Scole Experiment' occurred around two mediums, Alan and Diana Bennett. They were the apparent 'catalysts' for the phenomena as all the paranormal events that occurred required their presence. The Scole Experiment began in 1993 and ceased in 1998. Alan and Diana began the new experimental work - which is now called 'The Norfolk Experiment' - in early 2005. Grant and Jane Solomon, authors of 'The Scole Experiment: Scientific Evidence for Life After Death', are now joining Alan and Diana at experimental sessions in order to participate in the on-going experiments and to report the results and record the events as they happen. In addition to this Facebook Page, Grant and Jane are writing a new book, which will contain all the detail, descriptions, explanations, contributions, images, links, and other material, as before. This new book, to which Alan and Diana are contributing their knowledge, experience, ideas, and material, will be called, 'The Norfolk Experiment: Beyond The Scole Experiment'. Grant and Jane met Alan and Diana to conduct another set of experiments today. As a group, we thought followers of this Page might appreciate the opportunity to view a selection of images received to date during the Crystal Photographic Experiments, all in one place, in order to allow convenient comparison. We have therefore produced this album, which illustrates the varied quality and nature of the images transmitted by/received from the 'communicators' during the experiments. You may agree that some are 'crystal clear', leaving little room for doubt that a 'communicator' has transmitted an image, whilst some are quite blurred and open to interpretation or doubt. As we've mentioned elsewhere on this Page, the 'communicators' only have a fleeting moment in time to try to 'send' or 'transmit' an image 'into' or 'via' the crystal when Alan clicks the camera. When you see the other Posts explaining how the experiments are actually conducted and how the images are produced, you may agree with us that it is a wonder in itself that any images at all are available to show you. Whilst looking through the album of images, you may be interested to know that, although some of the 'communicators' say they are deceased humans who lived on Earth, died, and found themselves conscious in 'another place', other 'communicators' say they have never lived as humans and they are communicating from other 'realms' and 'dimensions of existence'. We hope to have many more images to share as the sessions of The Norfolk Experiment progress. For the background to the previous work of Alan and Diana Bennett, you may like to read 'The Scole Experiment: Scientific Evidence for Life After Death', which is available online with further recommended reading, here: astore.amazon.co.uk...

The question comes again. Has anybody gotten the same results as this? Therefore how can it be faked?

I watched the full documentary on this not too long ago and basically they have not done any of these experiments since the original ones which I think were back in the late 90's. Also they refused to allow Night Vision or Infrared Cameras into the basement where it took place as they thought it might "scare the spirits away" that left me believing it was complete rubbish.

I am pro-A's but think the Scole Experiment is laced with conjouring!
"Historical Moment" .............come on......this smacks of fakery!

When the so called sprit said Historical Moment, that just cheapened the whole thing for me.
Where is the proof the video tape was blank when it was used for this experiment? Just because some man said it was means nothing.
The alien Gray face was too fake. It looked like a mask.

These are not dead persons who have passed. The woman who lost her son, is fooling herself into feeling it is a good thing hearing these words now and then from what she thinks is her son. Clearly it keeps her from moving on and makes her mentally ill.

investigators imposed little or no controls or restrictions upon the mediums, and at the same time, agreed to all of the restrictions imposed by the mediums.
mediums effectively had every opportunity to be completely hands free and do whatever they wanted to do
he discovered this locked box could be quickly and easily opened in the dark, which allowed for easy substitution of film rolls. This box was provided by the mediums. Whenever any other sealed container was used, no images ever appeared on the film.
Perhaps the biggest red flag in the Scole Experiment is the venue in which the sittings took place: a room in the basement of the house in Scole where two of the mediums lived
The seances were held about once a month, which gave the Foys ample time to make any desired alterations to the room.
Audio recordings only were permitted, but since the claimed phenomena were primarily visual, the audio tapes are of essentially no value.
Mainstream psychologists and other academics would have gotten in on it, it would have made worldwide headlines, and it would be repeated in labs everywhere and become mainstream science.
a primary feature of good research is the elimination of other possible explanations, at which the Scole investigators made no competent effort.
Critics: they weren’t allowed to film in the dark, or with infrared. Therefore, hoax. Fact: they did film in the dark at least twice, without telling the psychics the camera wasn’t actually turned off, and the results show the “heavy oak table” made to be tamper-proof appearing to levitate, and petals falling (granted, not actually seen materializing from thin air). As a commenter there mentions, the film failed to provide evidence of fakery.
'it [infrared camera] would interfere with the energy, otherwise phenomena in light would take years and years instead of a few months that it took us'
'which had substance, they could sit on your hand, you could feel them' 'intelligently directed and intelligently moving..responsive to wishes whether expressed or silent' 'suddenly a light would do a tap-dance on table, hearing it click, and suddenly went through the table and on the other side' 'lights would pass through bodies, producing a healing phenomena'
'1,000 hours of continuous communication with the spirit world'
'she [channeled entity] would answer our questions quite quickly before we asked them, which was quite embarrassing'
'number of independent witnesses could identify people they were communicating with which only they would know, that the mediums couldn't possibly know'
'professor Arthur Roy, astronomer, testing his knowledge of the stars, talked with the other side about celestial mechanics, only half a dozen people in country would know what he was talking about'
