We have given examples so far for the reflection in experiments of the various festivals in the course of the year: Easter, St. John’s Festival, Christmas and Michaelmas.It seems therefore necessary to give also an example for Whit Sunday for the sake of completeness.
We find the following comment on Whit Sunday in the Bishop of Birmingham’s “The Rise of Christianity” on page 177:—
‘Forty,’ as used in ancient Jewish writings, was a conventional number. It had no precise significance; and ‘forty days’ meant merely a considerable, though undefined,period. But in due course, ecclesiastics desired precision that they might have a settled church calendar; and a natural wish to make a firm scheme brought into existence the sequence of Easter, Ascension Day and Whit Sunday, as we know them.
Is Whit Sunday fixed 40 days after Easter only for the convenience of a settled church calendar, or is it also a festival inscribed in the whole cosmos?
Let us return to the experiments carried out on Easter Sunday, the 28th March,1943, and study carefully once more the result obtained for Gold chloride and Copper sulphate, the strange formation, rising above the purple arc, splitting into two separate oval forms. After Easter Sunday the substances behaved in their usual manner and we see this, when we look at the same substances used a month later, the date given by the Church for Easter Sunday, 1943. There was no Easter event streaming through Gold and Copper sulphate, it was an everyday experiment. The experiments went on and on, giving the same well-known results. Now Whit Sunday arrives.
Plate 40, Fig. 76 is the result obtained for Gold chloride and Copper sulphate on Whit Sunday. Again we must describe this experiment as “unique” in its form and colours. There was no dark purple; instead a beautiful bluish green and light purple were the main colours. These shades were not present before Easter Sunday, not on Easter Sunday, and not afterwards. They appeared on this one day only. Does not the form in the middle remind us of the one obtained on Easter Sunday? Only there it was split into two, at Whit Sunday it is only one. It is a continuation of the metamorphosis we outlined for the seven experiments on Easter Sunday. See diagram here:
