From India to the planet Mars : a study of a case of somnambulism with glossolalia by Théodore Flournoy( Book )

"This book presents an investigation of abnormal mental or psychic phenomena. Twenty--even ten--years ago the phenomena which Professor Flournoy here describes in detail, and of which he offers a keen, skilful, psychological analysis, would have met with the sneers of popular science and the contempt of obscurantist orthodoxy; however, widespread and increasing interest in this area is manifesting itself both in Great Britain and the United States. This book presents a systematic scientific study of the mysterious psychic phenomena so long neglected by official science, but which are now beginning to assume their rightful place in the field of study and observation. The author undertakes a careful study of Mlle. Smith. Guided by two principles he refers to as the "Principle of Hamlet" and the "Principle of La Place", Professor Flournoy concludes that Mlle. Smith really possesses the faculty of telekinesis--the ability to move ponderable objects situated at a distance, without contact and contrary to known natural laws. On the other hand, he does not believe the phenomena manifested by her to be of supernormal origin. The various alleged "spirit" messages, "incarnations," "gift of tongues," and all other apparently supernormal phenomena, in his opinion, spring from Mlle. Smith's subliminal consciousness, and he exercises great skill and ingenuity in his effort to trace the very wonderful and astonishing manifestations with which he has had to deal to natural sources"--Preface.
