Figurski at Findhorn on Acid

In this article an attempt has been made to show as briefly as possible the universality of the belief in apparitions, and the varied forms under which this belief exhibits itself in various times and countries among savage and civilised peoples; and to indicate the basic principles on which it rests — namely, the existence of a spiritual world capable of manifesting itself in the sphere of matter, and the survival of the human soul after the dissolution of the body. While the beliefs in this connection of savage races and of Europeans in early and medieval times may arouse interest and curiosity for their own sakes, the scientific investigator of the present day values them chiefly as throwing light on modern beliefs.
