Description

Excerpt from The Nature of Theosophical Evidence There are many occurrences, commonly regarded as mysterious, which the other systems find themselves com pelled either to ignore or to deny; Theosophy welcomes these, as it does all other facts, finds a place for them in its system, and accounts for them in a rational manner. Among these are the facts of spiritualism, of apparitions and doubles, of mesmerism and telepathy. Materialism, being unable to explain these, takes refuge in denial of their existence - which is both disingenuous and foolish. A man may possibly not think it worth his while to ex amine these facts; but if he will not take that trouble, he has no right to assert that those who do examine, and testify to the reality of the occurrences, are either mistaken or fraudulent. Such an attitude resembles that credited to the ostrich, who is said to hide his head in the sand when danger is near, thinking that when he can no longer see it, it must have ceased to exist. As Mr. Stead re marks in a passage in the preface to his Real Ghost Stories, all honest enquirers know that these things hap pen, though they may have a hundred different theories to account for them.
