Kirlian photography

Vince's AuraIn 1939, Semyon Kirlian discovered by accident that if an object on a photographic plate is subjected to a high-voltage electric field, an image is created on the plate. The image looks like a colored halo or coronal discharge. This image is said to be a physical manifestation of the spiritual aura or “life force” which allegedly surrounds each living thing. Allegedly, this special method of “photographing” objects is a gateway to the paranormal world of auras.
