New Thinking Allowed

When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at www.newthinkingallowed.com

The Case of the Gold Leaf Lady with Stephen E. Braude

Stephen Braude, PhD, is an emeritus professor and former chairman of the philosophy department at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. He has also served as president of the Parapsychological Association. He is author of The Limits of Influence: Psychokinesis and the Philosophy of Science, First Person Plural: Multiple Personality and the Philosophy of Mind, Crimes of Reason, The Gold Leaf Lady, Immortal Remains, and ESP and Psychokinesis. He is the recent recipient of the prestigious Myers Memorial Medal awarded by the Society for Psychical Research for outstanding contributions. He also serves as editor of the Journal of Scientific Exploration.

Here he presents his research on the case of Katie, the Gold Leaf Lady — an individual who experienced a metallic substance, similar to gold leaf, forming on and around her body. Chemical analysis has shown that the substance was actually brass. Braude goes into some detail explaining why he was able to rule out fraud in this puzzling case. He describes Katie’s other psychic gifts, including trance mediumship, xenoglossy, and clairvoyance. He also describes the psychodynamics behind the gold leaf manifestations.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). He has served as vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, and is the recipient of its Pathfinder Award for outstanding contributions to the field of human consciousness.
