Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., professor of psychology at Saybrook University, is a Fellow in five APA divisions, and past-president of two divisions (30 and 32). Formerly, he was director of the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory, in Brooklyn NY. He is co-author of Dream Telepathy, Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them, The Mythic Path, and Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans, and co-editor of Healing Tales, Healing Stories, Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence, Advances in Parapsychological Research and many other books.

He is a Fellow of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion, and has published cross-cultural studies on spiritual content in dreams.

Here he describes his research in Brazil with an unusual spiritist medium, Amyr Amiden, who had the ability to produce apports. Krippner describes how his team observed over ninety instances of objects simply appearing in mid-air and dropping to the ground in front of startled observers. The objects included semi-precious stones, medallions, and even jewelry. Many research papers were published regarding these observations. Furthermore, the research team was able to record various physiological, and geomagnetic, measurements while the phenomena occurred. Krippner’s studies are probably the most extensive, scientific observations of apports on record.
