SUMMARY OF FACTS.
sum of what I have stated may
be resolved into the following propositions:—
1. That there exists a Force which
operates through a special type of human organisation, and which is
conveniently called PSYCHIC FORCE.
2. That this force is (in certain
cases) demonstrably governed by Intelligence.
3. That this Intelligence is (in
certain cases) provably not that of the person or persons through whom
the Force is evolved.
4. That this Force, thus governed by
an external Intelligence, manifests its action in (amongst other
methods) the writing of coherent sentences without the intervention of
any of the usual methods of writing. Such abnormal writing is conveniently
5. That the evidence for the
existence of this Force, thus governed by an external Intelligence, rests upon
(a) The evidence of the observer's
(b) The fact that a language other
than that known to the Psychic is frequently used.
(c) The fact that the subject-matter
of the writing is frequently beyond the knowledge of the Psvchic.
(d) The fact that it is demonstrably
impossible to produce the results by fraud under conditions similar to
those under which the phenomena are obtained.
(e) The fact that these special
phenomena are produced not only in public, and for gain, but in private,
and without the presence of any person outside of the family circle.
