PREFACE.

It is said that catalogues in the great libraries of the world contain the titles of nearly five thousand books on the soul of Man. No apology is offered, however, for this addition to the list, or for the claim made that the hypothesis herein set forth, supported by positive evidence, presents a complete scientific demonstration of the origin, existence, attributes and destiny of the soul.

The demonstrations of physical science are no longer questioned or doubted; yet many of them are based upon evidence much less positive and perfect than that demonstrating the truths of psychic science which is within reach of all investigators of psychic and spirit phenomena at the present day.

At long intervals in the dark ages of the past men have been born into the world with spiritual perception so keen that Eternal Truth has impressed itself upon their physical minds, and they have sought to bring such perceptions to the comprehension of their fellow men; but with slight success.
