Brigitte's Question about Materialization

In one of your recent emails you wrote:

". . . I am indeed interested to see Daniel to show
the results of tests done on private individuals under
modern laboratory conditions where the person in
question . . . [m]aterializes and de-materializes
objects as Blavatsky is claimed to have done." 

Brigitte, I am not aware of any recent experiments
that have been specifically conducted under modern
laboratory conditions to test individuals who might
claim to materialize/de-materialize objects. 

There may be such experiments; I am just not aware of
them. But I am aware of relevant parapsychological
experiments that deal with mind-matter interaction. 
For example, some of this PK research has been
summarized by Dean Radin in THE CONSCIOUS UNIVERSE. 
And these PK results certainly indicate that
"consciousness" or "mind" has the capability of acting
on physical systems. To say the least, this certainly
opens the door to the possibility that "consciousness"
or the "mind" can manipulate "matter" and even
"create" or "dematerialize" material objects. Where
do you draw the line?

Brigitte, you seem to be saying that YOU will accept
evidence about materializations ONLY from valid tests
conducted under modern laboratory conditions. It is
not clear to me why you confine yourself only to this
type of evidence.

It appears that you accept "some form of survival
after death". In reaching your view on the survival
issue, did you ONLY consider and accept evidence
obtained from test results in a modern laboratory
setting? Or were you willing to consider and accept
evidence found outside a modern laboratory?
