I’m not sure what I just read–but it was an interesting read. Pure fiction written by one person, or a primed subject who got wind of the session’s aim beforehand, or an imaginative subject winging it on the fly?

This is not surprising considering that an actual General (Stubblebine, I think) thought that there was no reason he could not walk thru walls. He also conducted ‘psychic’ war with General Noriega.
