Indiana Police Confirm Claim That Woman’s Children Levitate And Are “Possessed By Demons”

A US police captain says he believed a story about a woman who claimed her children were possessed by demons. Latoya Ammons, from Indiana, said her three children walked up walls, levitated and spoke in voices.

Official reports filed in 2012 backed up her claims, with psychologists stating that they saw the nine-year-old child speak in “different deep voices” and walk “up the wall backwards”.

Gary Police Captain Charles Austin described himself as a “believer” after visiting the house and interviewing Ms Ammons and her family. Official Indiana state documents detail more events, apparently witnessed by medical experts and those outside the family.

Levitation Technology Moving From Sci Fi To Reality

Continuing the trend of fictional technology becoming a reality, Dominic Basuto writes for the Washington Post that levitation is next up:

Every month, there seems to be news of some fabulous science fiction concept that is ever closer to becoming science fact. In just the past few months, we’ve seen concepts go public for medical tricorders, augmented reality glasses, smart watches (although how much we actually want them is up for debate) and Jurassic Park-style de-extinction. Now, enter levitation, which could very well be the next science fiction concept to hit it big.

If all goes as planned, it may soon be possible for pharmaceutical researchers to levitate molecules in mid-air and for city planners to build super-fast transportation networks filled with levitating vehicles.

The latest development is the ability of Swiss researchers to use sound waves to levitate —  and then move — particles and objects in mid-air.
