Hodson, when asked to do so, would usually collaborate with scientists and doctors and utilise his clairvoyant
abilities to help them with investigations which were too subtle for conventional examination in the laboratory.
Three of these scientists, who had worked closely with him in various fields of occult research, bear
testimony to the scientific impartiality and accuracy of his clairvoyant powers:

the years 1956 to 1959 I was fortunate enough to work with Geoffrey Hodson. My contribution was to record his
observations on the clairvoyant appearance of subatomic matter; I now have some forty hours on cassette tape
giving a verbatim account of the experiments we performed. There is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that Geoffrey
possesses quite remarkable powers of extra-sensory perception and invariably used these faculties with
meticulous regard for accuracy in both observation and description. He frequently stressed the selective nature
of clairvoyant observation and was fully aware of the pitfalls associated with the translation of what can be
called 'raw extra-sensory data' through the brain-mind into words capable of conveying useful meaning to his
hearers. Throughout these sessions he was a model of scientific caution, taking every possible care not to make
statements that might be misleading."

"For many years,
Geoffrey Hodson has co-operated with various scientifically qualified people in attempts to demonstrate the
research potential of superphysical faculties of perception, with which he is evidently highly gifted. From 1978
to 1981 I was closely associated with him as assistant and technical adviser in two such pieces of
"The first of these was
an extensive series of observations of the superphysical effects of musical sounds and pieces. The record of his
descriptions of these effects is extremely interesting from the artistic, acoustic, psychosomatic, and other
points of view.
"The second main area,
undertaken at the request of Dr E. Lester Smith F.R.S. of England, was an attempt to make further observations
of matter at the atomic and subatomic levels with a view to testing recent hypotheses on the interpretation of
the Occult Chemistry findings of C.W. Leadbeater and Annie Besant. This work has produced a number of tape
recordings of Geoffrey Hodson's descriptions which are in the process of being transcribed and will be sent to
England for analysis.
"Having been present
with him throughout the approximately twenty hour-long sessions in these two investigations, I feel able to
offer some impressions of his attitude and approach to this work.
"I have been repeatedly
struck by his integrity and uncompromising desire to seek the truth in every situation, regardless of any risk
of possible conflict with established findings of the scientific establishment or of earlier Theosophical
investigators. At the same time, he is clearly aware of the difficulties and limitations inherent in any process
of observation, especially one involving inner levels of the psyche, and has a tremendously careful and indeed
craftsman like attitude to the handling and direction of his extended perceptive abilities.
"In my opinion,
Geoffrey Hodson has amply succeeded in his goals of: (a) indicating the potential of superphysical research
methods, (b) producing material of great interest to the enquiring mind, and (c) providing a stimulus to others
to follow in his footsteps and expand and consolidate this work."

able to work very closely with Geoffrey Hodson for some months during the late 'fifties testing his clairvoyant
powers on pieces of fossils of early man about two million years of age. Each session carried out in the field
site from which the specimens came, was recorded on a tape recorder. No indication was given him what I thought
of his information until after the series of tests were completed and analyzed. Many of the questions put to him
required answers which could not be positively checked against known original specimens. The analysis showed
that every statement made by him which was able to be positively checked against known specimens was absolutely accurate, and most of what could not be
positively checked was in close agreement with what was thought to be correct.
that time almost all of the known fossil material of these early hominids was in my laboratory, and Geoffrey did
not see any of it until after the investigations were completed. I was impressed by the extreme care he took
over being as accurate and clear as he could be in the observations he made, as well as his descriptions of them
in such a way that his words were as precise as possible in offering the least possibility of

than one session without telling him this. He never handled the specimens himself, I placed them on his forehead

used mixed at random, only small specimens being used, e.g. a single tooth.

once. As far as I could determine his information was always accurate and he gave me a strong impression of

This research involved many hours of recorded superphysical investigations into the so called ape-men or
man apes, in particular the point at which man emerged from his ape-like progenitors. Thanks to
Lara-May Thorne and Charles Sitwell an important monograph has been published relating to paleontological research
into these early hominid predecessors. The reel-to-reel tape recordings made at the time of Geoffrey Hodson’s
and Dr. John Robinson’s research done in 1959 and 1960 have been transcribed digitally. The following is an audio clip of one of these sessions done in the cave and taken from

arrival of Dr Robinson's confirmation is the most important event of this year. No other occultist in history
has ever been submitted to complete scientific tests carried out by scientists. Hence, the great value of the
two affirmations of conviction after strict tests that undoubtedly Geoffrey not only has clairvoyant power, but
is able to use it accurately for both scientific and occult research.
other affirmation at that time was by Dr D. Lyness.)
testaments should appear in every book of Geoffrey's where clairvoyance has been the source of the knowledge
which the book conveys. The original documents should be preserved with the greatest care and when suitable made
available to the publishers. The originals might well be placed in the hands of your lawyers for complete
the most important, purely physical support for your work you have received, Geoffrey. We greatly congratulate
you on this unique, almost worldly affirmation.”
minded scientists stood in admiration of Mr. Hodson’s clairvoyant abilities which he utilized rather like a
scientific tool. In all probability scientific research in the future will benefit considerably from this type
of research, but it will need to await the birth of more seers who have capacities of a similar magnitude to
those of Mr. Hodson (kundalini activated seership).
In the course
of some of his research work into this very painstaking and demanding field Mr. Hodson was occasionally asked
for unrealistic things such as predicting readings from random number indicators – on such occasions he politely
refused saying that in order for the seer to co-operate in such experiments his Ego (his Spiritual Soul) had to
have some interest in the project, which, frankly, in such a case it did not have. He much preferred that his
abilities were taken for granted and on this basis he was prepared to help the scientists probe deeper into
their own field. He saw that as the correct professional relationship between the two disciplines of seership
and science, rather than conducting totally sterile experiments to verify or disprove clairvoyance, which in any
case may have disturbed the delicate balance necessary for superphysical investigation. However, he was quite
prepared to investigate and answer any reasonable questions such as the following put to him by Dr. E.
Lester-Smith F.R.S. :
“Q. If you examine a
living organism, animal or vegetable, do you see on magnification the sort of cellular structure that an
ordinary microscope would reveal?
A. I do not recall; let
me find out now. (After examining a blade of grass silently for a few minutes) – the answer seems to be no. I
see first what I call fringe phenomena, then a lateral play of energy in both directions. But no cells are
visible; my vision enters into the life-force aspect of the subject and I do not naturally notice the physical
construction. However, I believe I have seen cells on some occasions.”
