Death is not extinction. Neither the soul nor the body is extinguished or put out of existence. more...

Basing my conclusions on experience I am absolutely convinced not only of survival but of demonstrated survival, demonstrated by occasional interaction with matter in such a way as to produce physical results. more...

Death is not a word to fear, any more than birth is. more...

Life must be considered sui generis; it is not a form of energy, nor can it be expressed in terms of something else. more...

The amount of sophistication varies according to the quality of the medium, and to the state of the same medium at different times; it must be attributed in the best cases physiologically to the medium, intellectually to the control. more...
