Hutchison Sample Photos, Sept 2005
- Dear All:
After a Saturday trip to visit John Hutchison, I returned with over 400
photos and over an hour of video interview footage. I've attached a set of
sample photos showing the effect on Steel, Brass, and Aluminum bars & rods.
I've tried to include at least 1 distance & 1 closeup shot for each type of
material, as well as a couple of photos for Colby Harper, Mike Shafer,
Harold Berndt, and his two sons.
We also captured over an hour of video on my handycam, nearly as much on
Mike's handycam, and 400+ photographs altogether of the team, our trip, John
himself, and the variety of sample materials that he presented us with.
John addresses the "PK/psychic" criticism in-depth, and ultimately states
that it was the only way to keep the research open without having a TS/SCI
classification attached to it (during the hay-dayof the Reagan
Also, several of us talked with John about creating a public effort to raise
funds to buy/rent him a lab-location where he could begin experimenting with
the Hutchison-Effect again on a regular basis. We'd need to find a
benefactor for the space & electricity, but realistically John's entire cost
of setup in the Vancouver OR USA would pale in comparison to even minimal
startup-company research costs...and the value of his research would far
outweigh the expense of helping him perform the work.
I'm going to be sending out a few copies of both the interviews & complete
high-res photos on DVD, and I am taking requests for copies, depending on
who wants them. If you're only moderately interested, please consider
contributing to AAG a bit via PayPal, since these cost about $5 per copy to
make & send. I'm deducting the expense from the corporate account as a
promotional CODB, basically so that Danielle doesn't kill me for putting it
on the family cash-card. If you like John's work, you might consider
contributing a bit to his research as well (and if it's a choice, I'd rather
compensate him than myself).
I can also email you more photos, if you're interested -- I have a broadband
account, so the upload time is minimal. Please realize that I can't send
them all though, since I have a 5 meg limit on email attachments (except for
Comcast customers: 10mb).
In terms of closeups, we've been able to do significantly better than
anybody that came before us: I actually scratched my lens bumping it against
John's samples, and that was with the telephoto zoomed in. I was able to get
much more detail on the surface & interior structure of these samples than
I've seen in the past, and shot a mixture of IR-mode and standard
light-setting shots to show it in as much detail as possible.
Finally, at present, I don't have Mike's DVD footage on tape, but I should
have this by the middle of next week. Just an FYI -- I was focused on John,
so I literally have no idea what Shafer was shooting, but my hope is that he
was able to get good shots of the equipment that I wasn't focusing on, as
well as the hope that if he got me on camera, that the camera might take off
the extra 10-pounds from this summer :o)
Feel free to forward this around!
