T HERE are several ways by which the operations of the subjective mind can be brought above the threshold of consciousness. When this is done by any one of the various methods, a phenomenon is produced. Each of these phenomena has been, at some time in the history of mankind, attributed to the agency of disembodied spirits.
The leading phenomena above alluded to are clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, mesmerism, or hypnotism, automatic writing, percussive sounds (spirit-rapping), movement of ponderable bodies (table-tipping), and phantasmic appearances.
Of these, clairvoyance, telepathy, and hypnotism have generally ceased to be regarded as proceeding from super-           \
natural agencies. They are now recognized as powers inherent in mankind, and, as will be seen, are largely employed to explain other phenomena.
