In photography from the pre-digital era, wave-like deficiencies are sometimes observed in the negative that cannot be accounted for. Usually, these ‘errors’ are attributed to technical shortcomings, such as blurring of the objective, leaking of light or incorrect camera settings. However, in my collection of snapshots, I noticed many such defects for which no technical explanation could be given. I started studying and arranging these images: I classified the disturbance according to size, intensity, shape and researched the origin of the pictures. Even with this additional information, the observed effect could not be reasonably explained.
One evening it struck me that often, in the stories told by family members of the subjects in the pictures, somebody had died. Although I consider myself a sceptical person, I found myself investigating a possible link between the wave-like effect observed in the photograph and the death of those persons. After study of countless photographs, it could indeed be concluded that certain white, wave-like shapes corresponded to an upcoming death of the person ‘touched’ or ‘indicated’ by it. In addition, it often seemed that the size and the intensity of the mark were related to the imminence of death: the larger the size or the more intense its whiteness, the shorter the time between the moment the photograph was taken and the passing away of the indicated person. The shape of the phenomenon correlated to the cause of death. For example, in a photograph of a man touched by a white sharp form ‘cutting’ his legs, the shape exactly predicted his fate. Within one year after the photo was taken, the man would be involved in a serious car incident in which his legs were cut by the hot metal of the car. He did survive the accident, but his future was determined anyway: unable to cope with his new situation he committed suicide shortly after.
In further research, I tried to get more information about the kind of radiation involved. It was clear that its origin was not from the visible spectrum of waves. Since the silver halide layer of the negative is particularly sensitive to blue light, that is, waves with a relatively short wavelength, I studied the effect on the sensitive layer exerted by ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays, radiation with an even shorter wavelength than blue rays. Remarkable patterns were sometimes formed; however, those shapes were not comparable in subtlety to the unknown wave-like effects under investigation. When asking well-known leaders from the paranormal field, I received divergent explanations; the effect was suggested to be due to ectoplasmic substance from the dead or was supposed to be the materialization of angels predicting the death of the persons involved.
The only common denominator in all my studies is the fact that these wave-like shapes of unknown origin have predictive powers. As such, it must be concluded beyond reasonable doubt that for the first time in history, evidence is obtained of interference from the future into present day life.
