16 year old toddler

Brooke Greenberg.........The ageless Infant.

Scientist's and doctors alike are baffled at the discovery of an infant that doesn't seem to age.

By all account's Brook Greenberg appears to be your average care free and happy toddler, at first glance you would think nothing was out of the ordinary there right?....well you would be wrong.

Because baby Brook is not an infant at all, rather she is a sixteen year old girl, who for some reason doesn't seem to age, at least not in the way we normally think of ageing.

Brooke just turned 16 in January. She is 30 inches tall and weighs 16 pounds.

"Why doesn't she age? said Brooke's father Howard Greenberg.

It is that very question that have scientist's so interested in young Brooke! There are many different known ailment's that effect the healthy growth of children, some of which are directly responsible for causing abnormalities such as dwarfism or symptoms of rapid ageing (progeria). But according to her pediatrician Lawrence Pakula, from the Johns Hopkins school of Medicine in Baltimore, Brooke's case may be unique, Even some of the most well known scientific minds in this field of study are at a lose to explain this case, to date they have never seen a case like this, says Dr. Pakula.

Another doctor named Richard Walker from the University of South Florida College of Medicine, in Tampa, says that Brooke's body is not developing as a coordinated unit, rather individual parts seem to be growing out of sync with one another. To date Brooke has never been diagnosed with any known chromosomal anomalies or genetic syndrome's.

Dr. Walker along with two of his fellow scientist's, Lawrence Pakula and Maxine Sutcliffe, a geneticist from the All Children's Hospital in St.Petersburg, FL. Recently co-authored a paper for the journal "Mechanisms of Ageing and Development." In this article they say that there were a number of odd occurrence's related to Brooke's growth.... Throughout her life there has been very little change in her brain and cognitive function, and her various body parts arms, legs...etc seem to age at a slightly different pace then the other rather then maturing at the same pace, they also noted that her bone structure seems to be about 10 years old, and even though she is now 16 years old she still has her baby teeth.

Melanie Greenberg Brooks mother says, "She loves to shop"

Brooke rides along in the stroller whenever her mother goes shopping.

Melanie says.........

"That Brooke is in her mid-teens is so mind boggling that if another mother with a toddler asks how old she is?, she usually doesn't try to explain it."

"My system has always bee to turn years into months." She said that way if some one asked today i mite say she's 16 months old."

Brooke's family consists of her mother and father Melanie and Howard Greengerg and her three sisters 22 year old Emily, 19 year old Caitlin and 13 year old Carly, all of which are of an average size.

"She looks like a 6-month old, but she kind of has the personality of a 16 year old."
"Sometimes we joke about how she rebels." said Caitlin.

Brooke will resist and refuse activities that don't appeal to her by vocalizing her displeasure, not with words. but with sounds typical of an infant. "She makes it known what she likes and what she doesn't like." said Emily.

and Carly said,
It no longer seems strange to have an older sister who is still essentially an infant. "As i got older she was just like another little sister to me."

If you would like to know more about Brooke watch ABC's 20/20 this Friday June 26 at 10:00pm EST.

Brooke's story, a documentary about Brooke's and her amazing story will also be airing on TLC on Sunday August 2 at 9:00pm check your local listings for the correct time in your area.

Stella C Cranshaw....Psychic/Medium

Stella C Cranshaw,...Dorothy Stella Cranshaw, and later....Stella Cranshaw Deacon, after her marriage.

Photo from 1923.

Dorothy Stella Cranshaw was by all a counts an average young woman or as Harry Price would later say "A typical English girl".

Stella was the 22 year old daughter of a charcoal burner (A person who's job it is to make charcoal) She was born in the year 1900 in North Woolwich, London, and she worked as a nurse at a hospital in London. One day after boarding a train she soon became bored, not long afterward she meet a man named Harry Price,...Price was a researcher who was very interested in the paranormal, though at this point in his lift he was growing tired of all the false claims and down right hoax's . It was on this day in early 1923 that he boarded a train heading for home, by mere coincidence Stella had boarded the same train. When she saw a large stack of magazines and news papers next to him, having brought nothing to read for herself during the trip, she ask if she could read his copy of "Light" a magazine dedicated the the study of psychic research and paranormal phenomena.

Afterwords during there conversation Stella seemed to show a vague curiosity in psychic and paranormal phenomena, even though she had a few unique personal psychic experience's herself. She continued to tell Price of her personal experience's, stating that on some occasion's well she was siting in a quite room, suddenly small objects like matches, matchbox's...etc would begin to move on there own, there would be a breeze even though it was a calm day and the window was closed, and sometimes she would wittiness flashes of light followed be strange raping sounds. Stella loved flowers and she stated that the breeze would almost always occur well she was near flowers, and that sometimes well seating at a desk with a vase of flowers near by there would be a gentle breeze blowing across her face and making the flowers bend in the vase.

Harry Price a psychical investigator of the early 1900's was an avid believer in the paranormal and like many researchers of the time he was on an ambitious quest to locate and study individuals claiming to possess psychic / paranormal powers. In an attempt to prove to the world that such ability's really do exist......He would later become famous for his Borley Rectory investigation..(More on that case later..)

Price being the dedicated researcher that he is, was obviously exited at the prospect of finding a genuine psychic/ medium, and he was soon able to convinced Stella to take part in a number of seance's. Up until this point Stella had only attended one seance in her life when she was eleven years old, she then had to be removed from the seance because of her incessant giggling.

Stella attended three series of sittings each consisting of several session's. ( one in 1923, 1926, and 1928.) The first sitting took place at the National Laboratory of Psychical Research, in March 1923. Price went to great lengths to guarantee that no fraud would take place during the sittings, he would have the door locked and the key removed so that no one could sneak into the room,.... the room it self was arranged in a cautious manner to prevent tampering with anything inside of it, Stella was constantly monitored and her hands and feet were controlled by the other people attending the session.

Price was also very careful when making his selection of guests that wold later take part in the session's. Some of his more well known guests where Eileen Garret, a talented medium from Ireland and Eric Dingwall, who at the time served as a research officer at the Society for Psychical Research.

Two other well known scientists who attended Stella's seance's included, R. J. Til-yard, and Julian Huxley.

During Stella's sittings over a five years course, there were many various kinds of paranormal activity witnessed. Such as odd flashes of light, strange tapping sounds, the levitation of small objects and furniture, and on some occasion's the complete destruction of the levitating furniture as well as odd temperatur fluctuation's during one or her sittings on April 19 1923 the temperature dropped from 63 to 43. and during these events there was almost always a cold breeze felt near by. Another interesting fact, is that Stella's telekinetic powers seemed to be at their strongest during these tempter changes.

Price used many different tools during his investigation most of which he designed and built himself.

One of his creations was a large hollow double table, the table was surrounded on all sides by gauze mesh and had a large shelf inside, if some one tried to tamper with the items inside the gauze would be torn. there was also a trapdoor on the table, the door had been designed so that it was easy to open from the inside of the table but not the outside making it increasingly difficult to try and cheat once the table had been sealed. In one of the sittings several small musical instruments had been placed inside of the table, and even though the table had been sealed and no one had access to what was inside, the instruments began to play on their own, first a mouth organ and then an auto harp, this happened many times, and it was always followed be strand flashes of light near Stella.

Another one of Price's tools which he referred to as a "Shadow Apparatus" was used in order to try and determine the shape or form of whatever had effected the instruments inside of the table. The apparatus consisted on a telephoto lens was inside as a projector and it was attached to a metal box with a battery and a small lamp inside, when the lamp was on a small beam of light was focused into the lens and then though a ruby filter and onto a luminescent screen it would then cast a visible shadow on the screen making and showing the form of whatever it was that had effected there instruments during an earlier siting.

They recorded some pretty interesting results with this device.

The following statement was made by Eric Dingwall after one of Stella's sittings, keep in mind that Eric was a skeptic and even he was surprised by what he had witnessed.

Eric's statement is as follows......

"When the red light was switched on under the table, I lay down on the floor and looked up through the passage towards the luminous screen. From near the mediums foot, which was invisible, I saw an egg-shaped body beginning to crawl towards the center of the floor under the table. It was white and where the light was reflected it appeared opel. To the end nearest the medium was attached a thin white neck, like a piece of macaroni. It advanced toward the center and then rapidly withdrew into the shadows"

During one of Stella's sessions on April 12, 1923, a table was again witnessed moving on it's own and at one point Stella even made contact with a being known as Palma ( Believed by some to be her spirit guide) However the most eventful part of this sitting occurred half way through the session's, When Stella entered a seemingly trance like state and told one of the participant's there a woman named Miss. Phillimore, that she could see a news paper, and the front page read "Daily Mail ,dated May, 19,1923. She then went on to describe the paper, saying that she could read the words "Andrew Salt" printed in big words, and that for some reason she keeps seeing the image of a young boy falling, followed by doctors standing over him pouring of some kind of white powder. At the time no one saw much importance in Stella's vision. However some thirty seven days later the Daily Mail ran a large add on there front page for "Andrews Liver Salt,accompanied bu a picture of a boy who had spilt salt from a plate he was holding.

When contacted by the researchers the salt company stated that they had not shown the poster to anyone until May, and the Daily Mail said they had not even received a picture for the add until April 28th ( three weeks before the add was scheduled to run. This session is still regarded as one of Stella's most successful sittings.

The first of Stella's session's/seance's began on March, 1923. The second took place on April 10, 1926 and the third started in 1928. By this point Stella's powers had weakened or she was no longer all that interested in using them anymore, either way every time she would use her ability's, it would take a lot of her energy leaving her both mentally and psychically exhausted.

The seance's in 1928 where her last, not long after she and Harry Price parted ways.
and some time later in 1928 Stella married. Leslie Deacon.

To this day the records and accounts of Stella's amazing ability's still reside in the Harry Price Library at the University of London.

Rosa Kuleshova.......Eyeless Sight

Rosa Kuleshova.
Russian psychic, power......." Dermo Optical Perception"....Eyeless Sight!

Rosa Kuleshova, age 22 ....
1955 - 1978.........

Although Rosa was a unique individual, she was always a somewhat unimportant person in her home town "Nizhni Tagil" in the Urals Mountains. It wasn't until a well know Russian psychiatrist named Dr. Isaac Goldberg published a report documenting accounts of previous experiment's with Rosa in 1968, That people started taking notice, soon afterwards news of her strange ability's began to spread throughout Russia among the scientific community. A short time after the article's publication Rosa was invited to the Biophysics Institute of the Soviet Academy in Moscow where she underwent various experiments to test the extent of her powers. However all of this a attention soon went to her head, and after retuning to her home town she seemed to have some difficulty retuning to her normal life.

Not too long after coming home Rose found herself wanting to return to Moscow for further testing. She soon began making claims that she could not back up. On some occasion's even attempting to cheat, this lead some scientists to question whether or not her ability's where ever genuine to begin with. The next experiments were conducted in a highly controlled environment to ensure that no cheating would take place Rosa's ability's were deemed real after these experiment's. Later during a trip to Moscow in 1964 a reporter for "Life " named Bob Brigham witnessed Rosa's ability's for himself and stated that "She was fully capable of reading the small print on his business cards using only her elbow even though her eyes were completely covered making normal vision impossible." Not long afterwords other Russian psychics were discovered with this same ability's as Rosa or some very similar anyway.

Many of Rosa's family members where blind, and Rose had learned at an early age to read both normal print and braille. In Rosa's mind there was no fine distinction between the two forms of reading.

In an attempt to prove to his colleagues that Rosa's ability's were real Dr. Goldberg had her admitted to the Sverdlov Clinic for Nervous Disorders. At which time Rosa was blindfolded, the blindfold was checked and after confirming that she could not see what was going on the test began. Rosa started by piking a book at random and then raising her right hand and slowly moving it across the pages, she was able to easily read the text out loud. She could do the same with a newspaper. At one point the scientists handed her a photograph Rosa gently felt the picture and said " What a cute little girl with a ribbon in her hair and her face tilted upward!"

It would seem that Rosa was also capable of feeling colors with her hands as well. Stating that the color White felt smooth, Red felt grained and rough, and Blue felt wavy. In an attempt to rule out physical texture the neurologist's decided to test her using colored lights, they began by shinning a red light on a green book changing it's appearance to blue. Rosa correctly stated that the book was blue, then the turned off the red light making the book green again. Rosa still wearing the blindfold was amazed that the book could some how change colors.

Throughout her life Rosa suffered from epilepsy, and even though her brain-wave patters would change well she used her power to this day scientists were never able to find a correlation between her ability's and the epilepsy.

In 1978 Rosa Kuleshova died from a brain tumor.

The reports of Rosa's tests and her success in demonstrating her ability in the editorial office of the Moscow Journal Technika Mologji were reported in The International Journal of Paraphysice Volume. 13 nos. 3, 4...... just prior to her death.

Nina Kulagina.... Famous Russian Psychic.

Nina Kulagina....

The photo on the side is of Nina using her powers on video.

Nina Kulagina....Ninel Sergeyevna Kulagina.....Nelya Mikhailova.
Born in 1926 lived until 1990
Power,....Telekinesis / Psychokinesis

Nina Kulagina was a Russian psychic, who according to numerous people including well known scientists, news papers and many eyewitness reports, possessed a wide array of seemingly supernatural powers.

Although Nina had many different ability's, she is best known for her (telekinesis/psychokinesis powers )...Telekinesis is the ability to move objects using thought alone,...without having ever made physical contact with the object itself. Nina was filmed demonstrating her powers and the scientist's claimed that her ability's where real. During her childhood Nina grew up in Leningrad.
She was only 14 when the nazis began there attack on the city, it was at this time that Nina along with her brother,sister, and father joined the Russian army. Aside from living with the constant horrors of war the living conditions during the 900 day assault on Leningrad were horrendous. Nina and the other solders had to suffer through constant battle, freezing winter temperatures, small food rations, and on top of all this there city was devastated by continues bombing leaving them without water and electricity.During the war Nina served on the front lines as a radio operator in a T-34 tank.
She would go on to become a senior sergeant in the army, her military career came to an end when she was injured but artillery fire, Luckily she manged to make a full recovery and would go on to get married and have a son.

Nina claims she had always known about her srange ability's.
According to some accounts whenever she met someone ill she was able to discern what ailment they were suffering from, and that she could tell what someone had in there pockets because of an image she would get in her mind. One time when Nina was in a bad mood in her home. She began to walk towards the cabinet, when all of the sudden a cut began to move on its own it then fell to the floor and shattered. Not long after that, other strange things began to happen. Objects began to move by them self, and seemed to be attracted to her. The lights in her apartment would go on and off on there own.
Nina would later discover that when she concentrated, she could control this strange occurrence's. n 1964 Nina suffered a nervous breakdown and was hospitalized, well in the hospital she took up sewing. According to a published report Nina's doctors where stunned when they witnessed her reaching into a basket and pulling out any colour of thread she wanted, without ever looking into the basket. Local paranormal researchers where notified, and the following year after Nina had mad a complete recovery, she took part in numerous experiment's set up by the researchers in order to test the full extent of her powers. According to the tests Nina could indeed see colors with her fingertips as the doctor's had stated the previous year. It was also discovered that she possessed a type of healing ability, she could heal wound on her body just by holding her hand above them. Later when her psychokinesis was tested by Russian scientists the results of those test where so incredible that they made her use a false name. In order to keep her real name secret she was given the name Nelya Mikhailova. However to this day the full results of these tests have never been revealed, and more then likely they never will.
One of the first scientist's to test Nina was a Biologist named Edward Naumov.
Although the details of Edwards test are often sketch at best, According to many accounts his test consisted of spreading numerous matches on a large bench, then he would have Nina approach at which point she would raise her hand over the matches and they would suddenly begin to move to the edge of the bench together and fall to the ground. However this required a lot of concentration her hands would begin to shake, this ability put a lot of strain on her body.
Nina's telekinesis was not an easy feat to preform often times requiring many hours of preparation in order to properly clear her mind of all other thoughts and concentrate on her powers. However Sceptics like to point out the fact that the hours of preparation Nina took could have been used to help fake her powers.
In one of the experiments Nina would be seated at a table and instructed to concentrate on various small objects usually a matchbook loose matches or even a wineglass, and then make them move using her telekinesis.
Fantastic tails of Nina's extraordinaire ability's began to reach the U.S. Through the international wire service.
Later in the spring of 1968 films on Nina demonstrating her ability's, where shown at the First Moscow International Conference on Parapsychology. U.S. scientist's witnessed these films and for a shot time were allowed to meet with and interview some of Russia's other psychics and mediums, afterwords they were aloud to meet with Nina and see her psychokinesis for themselves.
In 1970 a man named William A McGary along with a group of U.S. paranormal investigators researching Russian psychics and mediums described a meeting with Nina in which she was able to move several small objects such as matches, bottle tops, and a wedding ring across a table without ever touching them.
Another one of the U.S. researchers named Gaither Pratt, from the University of Virginia stated that the objects that Nina was able to move all varied in size, shape, weight and material, and that the objects usually moved at a slow steady course, but every now and then the objects would Nina was controlling would move in fits and jerks. According to there accounts there were many measures taken to guaranty Nina was not cheating during the experiments by using any hidden threads or magnets, and all of the filmed experiments seem to prove that no know force could explain how Nina was moving the objects.
Through it is not really known how well Nina was checked before the beginning of the experiments.
A man named Dr. Zdenek Rejdak a Czech scientist with ties to a Prague Military Institute, personally tested Nina and later for some reason or another choose to reporter his findings to a far from scientific paper called Czech Pravda.
His statement is as follows....
"I visited the Kulagina family the evening of February 26, 1968 Mr Blazek, an editor friend was with me, also a physician, Dr. J.S. Zverev, and Dr. Sergeyev. Her husband, an engineer, was also present. Dr. Zverev gave Mrs. Kulagina a very thorough physical examination. Tests with special instruments failed to show any indication whatever of magnets or other concealed objects."
"We checked the table thoroughly and also asked Mrs. Kulagina to frequently change positions at the table. We passed a compass around her body and the chair and table with negative results. I asked her to wash her hands. After concentrating, she turned the compass needle more then ten times, then the entire compass and it's case, a matchbox and some twenty matches at once. I placed a cigarette in front of her. She moved that too, at a glance. I shredded it afterwards and there was nothing inside it. In between each set of tests, she was again physically examined by the doctor."
During one of the filmed experiments conducted by a group of well known physicists , many small non- magnetic objects such as matches and other such objects were placed in a large Plexiglas box. The box was created in order to prevent strings, wires and air from affecting the objects This are some of the methods Nina's sceptics believed she was cheating. But even with the box the objects inside would still movie when Nina concentrated and moved her hands near the box without touching it....During one extraordinary demonstration Nina was filmed levitating a small ping pong ball in mid air for a few seconds. "There may still be a few videos of this demonstration on Youtube unfortunately a lot of the footage is really old and kind of grainy."
According to a well know physicist named Dr. V.F. Shvetz. Nina in addition to being a skilled telekinetic she also possessed an odd ability to make the letter A or O appear on photos she was also able to make an outline of a form she had seen before appear on photos ."This ability is called Thoughtography" Thoughtography is the ability to transfer thoughts onto photographs through intense concentration. Also every once in awhile strange burn marks would suddenly form on Nina's hands there was even some reports that on few occasion's scientist's to there surprise witnessed Nina's cloths unexplainably catch fire. Later on towards the end of her life Nina appeared on television to demonstrate her powers, causing bright red marks to appear on the arm of one of the journalists.
In one of Nina's oddest filmed experiments, the scientist placed a raw egg suspended in a saline solution roughly 2 meters away from were she was seated. Nina was then asked to concentrate on the egg and try to separate the yolk from white she was successful at that task and found that if she concentrated hard enough she could put the two back together again. But by far Nina's most unusual filmed experiment took place in a laboratory in Leningrad on March 19, 1970. At this point the scientists were satisfied with the results of Nina's previous tests on inanimate objects. But they still wanted to see how far Nina's ability's extended and if her powers could have any effect on living organs and tissue. Dr. Sergeyev was one of many scientists in attending when they placed a frog in a saline solution and Nina was asked to use her power to try and stop the frogs heart beat and then start it up again. So she began to focus all of her power on the frogs hart beat at first she mad it beat faster then slower and slower finally stopping it. Nina could also effect a human heart beat as one hostile psychiatrist found out first hand after frighting her.
It would seem that Nina's ability's put a large strain on her body the more she used them, At one point after preforming some of her tests with Dr. Rejdek Nina had almost no pulse and was completely exhausted she could barely move and during that 30 minute session she had lost almost four pounds of bodyweight. Statements made by Dr. Zverev indicated that her heart beat was irregular, her endocrine system was disturbed and she had high blood sugar all indications of stress. On top of those symptom's she would also suffer from pains in her arms and legs , dizziness, lose of taste and lose of coordination.
This continued to progress until one day in the late 1970's Nina almost died from a heart attack, her doctor's suggested that she refrain from using her powers the way she use to however Nina would continue with some of her lab work until her death in 1990. It is widely believed that these continued experiments lead to physical exhaustion and were a major contributing factor in her death Nina was praised by the Soviet Union as a "Hero of Leningrad" for her brave service in World War 2, as well as her dedicated work in the field of psychic research, and helping to try and achieve a better understanding of the Paranormal.

Angelique Cottin: The Electric Girl.

Angelique Cottin The Electric Girl.
Power,....Electrokinesis / Psychokinesis.

This story is about a girl named Angelique Cottin and her paranormal power's....

Angelique was a simple peasant girl from Normandy, Who for some reason or another seemed to posses a unique ability that created a strange effect on the people and objects around her. Although this seemingly paranormal phenomena was very similar to what we now associated with (poltergeists activity or possibly psychokinesis). Angelique would later become know as The Electric Girl. Angelique's ability though rare are not uncommon. However she is one of the more well know cases, Because her case was one of the first of a supernatural kind to be studied in a scientific manner.

The strange phenomena that haunted Angelique began at around eight o'clock on the evening of January 15, 1846, in La Perriere, France. Angelique then 14 years old, along with a few other girls were busy weaving silk gloves on a large oak frame, when to there surprise the heavy wooden frame began to move about all on it's own, and though the girls tried they could not keep the frame from moving. Frightened they called the neighbor for help, unfortunately he did not believe the and told the girls to get back to work. So still frightened over what had just happened the girls slowly returned to the frame one by one and it was still until Angelique came close the suddenly it began to move again. The other girls where afraid but Angelique was not frightened by this strange event instead she felt some kind of attraction towards it.

After hearing about what had happened with the frame Angelique parents became worried fearing that there daughter may have been possessed, they sought help from the local Church in order to preform an exorcism. But they refused to do the exorcism instead the priest wanted to see this strange phenomena for himself, after witnessing it he was convinced that this was not demonic possession but rather something physical. he then told her parents to take her to see a medical doctor.

While in the meantime Angelique's ability's where growing worse, when she would try to sit in a was immediately pushed away. At one point with just a touch from Angelique a large 6o pound table floated into the air. if she would try to sleep in a bed, it would rock uncontrollably. It got to the point that the only place she could sleep was an a large rock covered with cork. Every time she would go near a small object it would move away from her in the opposite direction without any apparent physical contact by Angelique. Even a light touch from her hand or apron would make objects and furniture start moving around or even flying across the room, in some instances this would happen even if the object has being held down or sat in at the time. People who where close to Angelique even without touching her would sometimes get an electric shock.

Many times there seemed to be a cold wind blowing when she was around .....this also happens in some hunting's or poltergeist investigations. It is also noted that when her powers where active Angelique's heart rate would increase to at least 120 beats per minute and that she was injured by her involuntary movement's during convolution's she would suffer from well using her power. Whenever this would happen she became frightened and would run away from the scene.

For some reason her ability was weaker when she would stand on a carpet or waxed cloth, but whenever she would stand on bare earth they would be drastically stronger. Also for some strange reason metals were not affected by her powers witch was strange because her powers seemed to be some sort of electricity.

When she was tired her powers would become weaker and some times they would even stop for two or three days at a time and then just suddenly start up again.

Later one of the doctors Angelique had been seeing took her and her parents to Paris, France Where they meet with a large group of scientists at the observatory.

All of the scientists had been appointed to this case be The Academy of Science. After numerous tests they all came to the conclusion that Angelique's strange powers were real. Later a report of there findings where published by the well know physicist Francois Arago, in The Journal des debates on February of 1846.

Arago seemed to believe that Angelique's powers were some kind of strange electromagnetism....

Arago recorded a lot of strange facts about her ability's. One thing he concluded is that for some reason the left side of her body, more specifically her left hand and pelvis seemed to be where most of the repulsive energy originated from and that when she used her powers that side of her body was warmer then the right side and that she suffered from convulsions so badly that when she started to shake, if you were to grab her hand you would begin to shake as well.

Another thing he noted is that her ability's did not happen continuously but rather spontaneous during the day and at there strongest in the evenings between seven and nine o/clock.

Whenever they would place a piece of paper, a pen or any other small object on the table , and Angelique wold move towards it with her left hand the object would go flying off the table as if thrown by a gust of wind without any physical contact.....The table itself would be sent across the room the moment she touched it with her hand, or even by a thread she was holding.`Threw his observation of Angelique ability's Arago was able to confirm what others had witnessed earlier.

That being........that Angelique needed only a slight touch from her body of clothing to move or flip furniture, and that she could not touch an object without it being thrown to the ground or breaking apart.

Most likely Arago came up with his theory about electromagnetism after witnessing Angelique's strange sensitivity to magnets.

If a magnet was hung in a horizontal position the needle would swing rapidly with the movement's of her arm even though she never made physical contact with it, or it would stay still well deviating in the opposite magnetic direction of Angelique.. Whenever she would go towards the north pole of a magnet she would get a very powerful electric shock, while the south pole had no effect of her.

The scientists tested this many times even switching the poles without her knowing and yet Angelique was always able to tell them the north side and the south side based on the different sensations she felt..but even with this strange ability she seemed to have no effect on the needle of a compass even though Arago had expected there to be some kind of reaction.

Even with the violent convolution's and the unpredictable nature of her ability Angelique seemed to be in relatively good health throughout her entire ordeal, it was suggested at one point that the cause of this strange phenomena may have been nervous ailment she was suffering from at the time.

Argo concluded his finding's by saying: ( The case of Angelique Cottin demonstrated: "That, under peculiar, conditions the human organism gives forth a physical power which, without visible instruments, lifts heavy bodies, attracts or repels them, according to the laws of polarity, overturns them and produces the phenomena of sound.

But that was not the end of it after the case study was finished, and against the doctors advice, Angelique's parents being poor and thinking they could turn a profit, began exhibiting her as an attraction to paying visitors. Although by that time the phenomena had probably stopped and she was encouraged to fake what had once been a real ability.

On April 10, 1846 , her strange powers stopped, never to return.

and thous ends the case of Angelique Cottin.....The Electric Girl.
