Dear Mystery Entertainers,
Some of miistermagico's material has been removed from the Ingo Swann wikipedia entry.
In the summer 1972 American Society for Psychical Research Newsletter Dr. Karlis Osis, director of research for the ASPR, described his personal controlled out-of-body experiment with Swann. The targets that Swann was to attempt to describe and illustrate were on a shelf two feet from the ceiling and several feet above Swann's head. Dr. Osis does not describe the height of the ceiling. [11] Swann suggests, unclearly, the ceiling was 14 feet in height. [2]The room was illuminated by two kitchen-style overhead fixtures. Swann sat alone in the chamber with wires from electrodes fastened to his head running through the wall behind him. Swann sat just beneath the target tray. [2]He was given a clipboard to use for sketching. Any movement while drawing did not result in "artefacts" in the brain readout. [12] Although his out-stretched hand might not have extended far enough to reach the suspended shelf, the clipboard that he used for sketching could have been employed as an extension. Perhaps with a mirror held by the clip at the high end, the lower end grasped by the fingers of his extended hand. In Swann's book To Kiss the Earth Goodbye there is a photograph of the objects on the shelf. Swann wrote that he was aware of most of the objects on shelf above his head, but he did not know it held four numbers on a side. A side that would not have been visible if a reflecting surface had been angled near the end. Writing about this experiment master magician Milbourne Christopher asks the questions why were the target objects in the same room as the subject? Why were they so close to the subject? And finally, why wasn't an observer also in the room at the time of the experiment?[13][14] The statements that Swann's targets where concealed in sealed boxes are false.

It does not surprise me at all why such a thing would be removed.

Dear Mystery Entertainers,
These are the sources that were listed for miistermagico's entry 4 jun 2018.
[13] Search for the Soul by Milbourne Christopher, Thomas Y. Crowell, 1979
[14]Kiss the Earth Good-bye: Adventures and Discoveries in the Nonmaterial,
Recounted by the Man who has Astounded Physicists and Parapsychologists
Throughout the World by Ingo Swann, Hawthorne Books, 1975
Wikipedia prefers the use of secondary sources, not primary.
Therefore, my use of Ingo Swann's own autobiography is frowned upon.
miistermagico has always been an outlaw and has a rebellious nature toward
authority. (A professional historian prefers primary sources.)
Mrs. miistermagico once exclaimed,"Why do you want to give up all
that job security and return working with those bums?"
(They are called creativity and enjoyment)
Sincerely,
miistermagico
