The Spirit World As Dealt With By Science And Law

By James Donahue

October 2006

Weird News

Because my family is deep into esoteric interests and we live among the spirits that roam a haunted old Victorian house, we find it laughable when we occasionally read about the way science and the courts struggle to deal with matters of ghosts, goblins and other elements of the invisible world.

A recent news story involves Filipino Judge Floro Florentino who was dismissed from the bench because of his ongoing relationship with three invisible dwarf “spirit guides.” The judge lost an appeal to keep his job. The Supreme Court's ruling stated that Florentino's insistence that the dwarf guides, Luis, Armand and Angel, proved that he has a “medically disabling condition of the mind” that renders him “unfit to discharge the functions of his office.”

Now Judge Florentino has countered by filing a disbarment case against members of that high court. In this case, filed in a country where a widespread belief in spiritual forces exists, the judge apparently tends to try to prove the existence of the spirit world and accuse the tribunal of slandering his good name.

We wish Florentino well in this matter. While we do not know all of the details of this case, or whether the man may, indeed, be deranged and allowing imaginary friends to assist in his decisions on the court bench, we support his claims that a spirit world exists around us. We also agree that these entities have more of an influence on our daily thoughts and actions than most folks would like to admit.

Yet without the technology only now being developed by Prophet and Psychic Aaron C. Donahue to not only evoke these spirits, but capture clear photographic evidence of them, Judge Florentino may have a hard time convincing any court that things invisible to us in our dark three-dimensional world really exist.


Dismissed Philippine Psychic Trial Judge Florentino Floro recently filed an unprecedented disbarment case, with the Philippine Supreme Court against its leading lights.

This makes the judge's story not yet closed due to the dwarves' influence.

The three mystic dwarves of the psychic judge are considered as “channelers” who could relay “information from realms beyond”, but are

condemned as charlatans “flimflamming the gullible”. Superstitious beliefs among Filipinos are very common.

If we have to take the words of the New Age advocates, the channelers composed of diverse entities, among them the elementals purported to bring “transcendental wisdom”.

Well, of course the channelees are condemned as charlatans “flimflamming the gullible”. The preponderance of nonbelievers in the New Age theory that spiritualists and trance-inducers or channelers of varied types vastly outnumber and the latter dubs the phenomenon as a “shallow quasi-faith”. And yet sometime in the last quarter of the 20th century, a serious study of the New Age—considered as the “counterculture posts”—was conducted by the University of Chicago's National Opinion Research Center and the disquieting discovery was that almost one-third of the Americans believe in psychic phenomenon or experience.

Superstitious beliefs among our folks, either in the countryside or urban centers are prevalent. If we take into account the gods in Ancient Greece that they communed with mortals through oracles as time flowed with downstream, the conduits of channelers are no longer the séance rooms but conference halls and media facilities where some “foresights” are given or predicated drawn from trances of thoughts empirically-based.

The “transcendental philosophy” of Immanuel Kant could reach unchartered shores of ideas if we have to consider the vagueness of his “a priori principle”, which is abhorred by other legal perspectives notably among the adherents of the positivists who advocate the “pure” theory of law. Even the latter description could bring about an endless minding of the “purity” of the law, which through the needle's eye could not yield the minute essence of lucidity.

The nuances of séances or psychic phenomena or the use of the medium are totally absent from all legal perspectives. But stories about the transcendental wisdom about performances under spirit guidance have been reported.

Two famous women considered as successful “trance lecturers” were Emma Hardinage Britten of England and Cora L. V. Richmond of United States, but were however criticized by famous novelist Henry James in his novel “The Bostonians”, discrediting spiritualism's relation to feminism.
