These transmissions are a part of the Menetekel, a collection of 4,500 A4 pages of freshly catalogued protocols, amassed over 20 years. All of these mediumistic messages were left in their original form, even if similar questions were repeated. The work of the two mediums began when they were 15 and respectively 17 years old. The total production of the MFK-Berlin (Medialer Friedenskreis Berlin), the Menetekel and the 21 transmissions from the space-brothers are considered the absolute pinnacle of psycho-scientific exploration. Other spiritual circles have often tried to copy the work of the MFK, but its quality was never achieved. The reproduction and distribution of these rearranged messages and protocols is explicitly encouraged and is not covered by any copyright. __________________________________________________________________________________ 1.

But both types of certitudes have been exposed to doubts by various forms of scepticisms right from the beginning. The chance of absolutely guaranteed knowledge and the unassailability of religious beliefs were exposed to sceptical criticism as well. But in view of the apparent successes of scientific thought, the way it came into expression through its technological implications, the advocates of scepticism have never been able to prevail against the claim of absoluteness of scientific knowledge. Religious credence on the other hand was exposed to increasing
