It is not so long ago that I can’t remember clearly how cynical and disbelieving I was when it came to the subject of Mediumship. In fact, in terms of spiritual phenomena, this is where I drew the line, in terms of credulity. And now it seems to me strange that I did not recognise a number of events in my life, as pertaining to, and even demonstrating the subject. I am certain that with a bit of help many people can find situations in their past experience that can only be explained by throwing open the gates of purely objective reasoning, to allow that objectivism is essentially self-limiting. The framework of the 5 senses is a very narrow keyhole through which to acknowledge the world. And that is what consciousness essentially is. This is what Shakespeare alluded to when Hamlet (who was interrupted talking to his father’s Ghost) to horatio uttered:

Swear by my sword
Never to speak of this that you have heard.
[Beneath] Swear by his sword.

Well said, old mole, canst work i’ th’ earth so fast?
A worthy pioneer! Once more remove, good friends.

O day and night, but this is wondrous strange!

And therefore as a stranger give it welcome.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Hamlet Act 1, scene 5, 159–167

Horatio, rationality personified, is still having a hard time swallowing the whole business of Ghosts. Not the sort of beings his approach easily takes into account. Horatio is, like Hamlet, a student at the University of Wittenberg, a notable outpost of Protestant humanism. The philosophy he studies there is probably classical—a compound of ethics, logic, and natural science. The emphasis on everyday phenomena pretty much excludes speculation about talking ghosts.
And things have not moved that far since Shakespeare penned “Hamlet”
