The value of this attempt remains to be tested by the further understanding which time will bring, and by the increased receptivity to fresh ideas that may be expected from the new age. I have always been interested in psychology and so-called psychic problems, and have spent much time in the past studying the theories of other writers on such subjects. Gradually I discovered that many of the ideas gathered from these sources refused to live together in comfortable association- finally, this lack of agreement was succeeded by an attitude of mind which more or less harmonized my own observations and experiences with those of others.I am fully aware that this book offers a good target for criticism in the light of popularly accepted ideas on psychology. My object in giving it publicity, however, is not to provoke antagonism, but rather to open up a vista for further and more important discoveries by those who may bring detailed and precise scientific knowledge to bear upon the hypothesis I have advanced.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
