From a ringing telephone in a abandoned railroad station with no phone service to a cell phone buried with a deceased that apparently produced text messages to a bereaved widow, there is enough high strangeness to keep one's mind occupied as much as the author's in attempting to navigate both physical psychic phenomenon alongside human psychology as well as theories involving physics.
One case of high strangeness revolves around a computer that only had a very basic word processing system in the pre-internet era, that managed that somehow had produced some three hundred messages in a extremely obscure 16th Century local dialect known as Southwestern Middle English with nearly three thousand words and terms, out of which, one hundred and twenty one were unknown and yet their arrangement as well as meaning were perfectly clear. The originator of these messages was one Thomas Harden who had once lived in the same cottage were the messages were received. When an investigation by the SPR was conducted, it turned out TH was an actual person who indeed had lived in the cottage during the 16th Century, and to make the situation more strange, as if it were not strange enough, Thomas reported that he was sending these messages by the same computer ( which he called a box of lights) that had suddenly appeared in his cottage, and his servant girl called this bizarre event, work of the devil, while Thomas was intrigued..Even more bizarre was a message purportedly from 2019, that this three way transcommunication was an experiment conducted in that distant year. As they say, time will tell.
