FLUIDOLOGY: SENSORY AND SPIRITUAL SCIENCE BACKGROUND Where does this knowledge come from? My parents once became acquainted with a medium, to whom my brother and I were introduced around 1999. The medium served as a vessel for the spirit of a deceased paranormal pirate of Mongolian ethnicity. The paranormal pirate, whose name I don’t know how to pronounce or write properly, was born to pirate parents in the sea, in 1679. The paranormal pirate became a captain when he acquired a decrepit ship and restored it. All the seventeen ships of his fleet went through the same process of being acquired in poor conditions and then restored, which caused people to call him Shipwright. Mr. Shipwright used his paranormal abilities to his own advantage and listened to input from his crew, which made his plunders very successful. People liked being in his crew because, after every plunder, he always paid for big parties for his crew in a port and then shared the prizes generously. Looting the coast of what is now known as Colombia was especially pleasurable to him because of the great quality rum that could be sourced there. Mr. Shipwright’s widowed mother accompanied him in his plunders and eventually fell in love with a quartermaster, but Mr. Shipwright did not approve of their relationship. In a moment of carelessness in 1735, Mr. Shipwright was pushed to the sea by the quartermaster and drowned. When his soul reached the spiritual plane, Mr. Shipwright was told that he was forbidden from reincarnating until he had passed on enough spiritual knowledge to people across different countries and generations. *** My parents took my brother and I to sessions with Mr. Shipwright every fifteen days. They always carried a bottle of white wine for us, and a pack of cigars and a bottle of rum for the spirit. The sessions always took place in the medium’s home on weekend mornings, in a sizable room that was specifically designated for spiritual activities, in which there only were a red carpet and a white gurney. This is a general and procedural description of what happened in the sessions: When he felt that the spirit had arrived, the medium stood on a corner of the room and focused, taking deep breaths. The medium’s legs and arms started shaking, his facial features changed considerably, and he fell on his knees. The whole process of the spirit taking control of the medium’s body lasted for just a few seconds. When the process was done, my parents, my brother and I sat on the ground in front of him and greeted him. The spirit could speak Portuguese because that was the medium’s native language. It was very interesting to notice how the medium’s vocal cords produced such a different voice when the spirit spoke. Then, Mr. Shipwright cleansed our auras and rid us of negative energies. My father helped Mr. Shipwright light a cigar and poured wine in a glass. Mr. Shipwright blew cigar smoke into the glass, covered the glass with one hand for a few seconds to convey energy, and told one of us to drink the whole glass of wine with the smoke all at once. My father refilled the glass, and the process was repeated for the next member of our family then designated by Mr. Shipwright, until we all drank the elixir. After the cleansing, if a health issue was detected in any of us, Mr. Shipwright would invite the spirit of a doctor to diagnose the illness and prescribe the cure. Otherwise, he proceeded to teaching our family a specific subject concerning the science of the spiritual plane. When the private lecture was finished, we all asked our questions and Mr. Shipwright answered all of them. Then we talked about what was going on with our lives and the session ended. A session usually lasted for around three hours. These are my memories and thoughts on the subjects that Mr. Shipwright taught me. I am publishing them as Mr. Shipwright had once told me to do, decades ago.
