The Director's wife, Mrs. JudithCrabb, is office manager.PURPOSES OF BSRA: This is a non-profit organization of people whotake an active interest in unusual happeningsalong the borderland between the visible and invisible worlds. Inthe words of the late Meade Layne, founder and director of BSRAfrom 1946 to 1959' "BSRA publications are scientific in approach but employ few technical expressions. They deal with significant phenomena which orthodox science cannot or will not investigate.For example: the Fortean falls of objects from the sky, Teleporta-tion, Radiesthesia, PIC Effects, Underground Races, Mysterious Disappearances, Occult and Psychic Phenomena, Photography of the Invisible, Nature of the Ethers and the problem of the Aeroforms (Flying Saucers). In the year 1946 BSPA obtained an interpretation of the phenomena which has 3ince come to be known as the Etheric or 4-D Interpretation, and which has not been radically altered sincethat time. This continues to be the only explanation which makesgood science, sound metaphysics and common sense."The chief present concern of the Foundation is to make this kind of unusual information available as a public service at reasonable costHeadquarters acts as a receiving, coordinating and distributingcenter. An important part of the Director’s work i3 to give recognition, understanding and encouragement to people who are havingunusual experiences of the borderland type and/or are conductingresearch in one or more of the above fields.

Ey Rev. Basil Wrighton, M.A.The legend of Faust is the most metaphysical of all legends,for its theme Is the deliberate choice by man of ultimate Evil instead of ultimate Good. And, of all the myths and legends of the past, it is the most fearfully prophetic of the age we live in.Faust, the master of Sciences and magic arts, sells his soulto the devil, barters his prospect of eternal happiness for thetempter's promise of unlimited power and enjoyment in this life.He gets what he bargained for; and so does the devil. A day comeswhen the devil claims his own and carries off the soul of Faust toeternal damnation. (It is only a later version of the story, theversion immortalised by Goethe, which introduces the redemption of Faust.)We may see in Faust an image of modern man, man who has atlast'«home of ago, or thinks he has cosie of age.'- -He has cast off thethe childish superstitions of past ages and the restraints of traditional morality. He has emancipated himself from poetry, from philosophy and from religion. He has split the atom and is landingon the moon. "God is dead," he cries in triumph, and the world liesat his feet. He still calls himself a "humanist", but his humanismis a very different thing from what we used to understand by thatterm. It is chiefly a matter of applied science, social engineering, compulsory welfare, control of life and reproduction by test-tube methods, and (of course) vivisection.Contemporary man stands at a parting of the ways, at a major crisis of evolution. What wonder if our mind is carried back tothe fateful figure of Faust, with the world of his dreams opening before him and Mephistopheles whispering at his elbow: "All thiswill I give thee if thou wilt fall down and adore me."It is only recently that we began to realise what a long period of evolution has gone to the making of man as he is now -- long agesof physical evolution, followed by further long ages of struggle tomaster the environment, before he could even begin tb e work of civilization and education which has occupied the last five thousanyears or so and is still far from complete. The general purposeof this long process of evolution and civilization is to bring outand strengthen what i3 best and highest In human nature -- to develop man's spiritual potentialities.Apart from religious movements, perhaps the biggest educational step forward was made in the days of Plato, twenty-four centuriesago. The Platonic idea of education, the old humanism, which hasso largely shaped our western culture, puts before man the quest of
