When investigators of the paranormal find the right approach to their human study-subjects, they often experience things that lay far beyond what even Parapsychologists are willing to accept.
The trick is to sensitively become part of the phenomenological system, not only to illuminate parts of it from the outside!
The system theorie of the German Physicist Dr. Walter v. Lucadou describes the reasons, why in certain cases of paranormal outburst, the phenomena cease, the moment researchers enter the scene – who come as strangers from the outside and usually leave as those.
The ‘ceasing phenomena factum’ is as well known in parapsychology as the ‘failing recording symptom’. Both are highly interesting research artifacts that lead to interesting conclusions!
Since we don’t know precisely what is going on in anomalous phenoemena it is vital that informed field-researchers not destroy sensitive environmental factors, but proceed with care and sensitivity so as to assure concerned parties that professional care is being taken in these investigations.
We can state that any profound understanding of the “paranormal” is only poossible in long- term investigations. To gain the subject’s trust and to gain insight into the dynamics of any particular case takes time and also requires one being at the right place at the right time—a situation which can be very time-intensive.
It is a naive expectation to think one can gain understanding by simply shouldering camera equipment and then, let’s say over a weekend, expect to reveal what’s behind the mysterious aspects of the paranormal. Unfortunately, many field investigators seem to believe this! But real insight doesn’t work that way.
Nancy Talbott’s (BLT Research Team) approach to the mysteries of Robbert v/d Broeke’s mediumship and the crop circles which form around him has been to personally observe and document as many precise details as possible. She has been visiting Robbert in Holland most summers since 1997 (going on 16 years now) and has written many in-depth reports about various aspects of his case.
Robbert came to our attention because of his “Psychic Photography” ability. In the history of the paranormal there are only a few cases in which persons or groups were able to influence photographies reliably. In the last century mainly Myota Kasuaki and Ted Serios were the main facilitators of photographic phenomenon, but there are a very few other cases which are not so well-known. The Scole Experimental Group also conducted “Psychic Photography”!

Robbert’s ability to take photos like these is amazingly special.
The “energies” he perceives as being present during these photo-sessions can affect any photo-camera (film or digital) he is holding—a fact which has been repeatedly documented in front of dozens of different investigators, TV and film crews, and other visitors.
These people simply hand Robbert their cameras and, within seconds or minutes, strange images of one kind or another appear – clearly visible immediately on the camera’s LED screen for everybody to see!
This has been documented several times on videotape which has been operating continuously.
Photographic experts say it is not possible to create these images in the actual manner in which they occur—without the presence of a computer and photo-imaging software.
But in Robbert’s case there is no computer present, no photo-imaging software, nothing but a camera which he has often been handed by someone else. And yet the anomalous images keep appearing whenever Robbert feels the “energy” present.
The paranormal sometimes comes in strange ways and surely oftentimes the
human ability of comprehension is not sufficient to adequately describe
the bigger context.
We are thankful to Nancy Talbott’s thorough and intriguing documentation of Robbert’s case and to both her and Robbert for their compelling and tireless work and their permission to present some of that information here.
