Excerpt from The Inner Chamber of the Science of Mentalphysics
In this Commentary I quote freely from.the article in Scribner's Monthly, above referred to. Authorities on vital statistics, such as Lord Bacon, Flourens, Hufeland, Buffon and others, have contributed valuable information on the subject 3 yet their pages read like an Eastern romance, so interwoven do we find valuable counsel and superstitious belief. Lord Bacon thought that some art for prolong ing life was known to the ancients, and, having been lost, is recoverable we know it is recoverable, and we have the means at hand in our beloved Science.
