Psychomancy : Spirit-Rappings and Table-Tippings Exposed (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Psychomancy: Spirit-Rappings and Table-Tippings Exposed We do not attribute to Satan any direct agency in this matter other than has always been ascribed to him in the crimes and misdeeds of man from the fall down to this present time. That neither the prince of the power of the air, nor his imps (unless they be in human shape), rap out intelli gence by sounds, get under tables and tip them over, swing them round, or perform any Of these extraordinary feats, which so many among us are determined to invest with supernatural character and origin. Nor do we consider that the arch enemy Of man has brought any new power or agency into Operation to further his mischievous designs. Far from it. A new power? It would frustrate his schemes in their very inception. A new power? It is a lawful subject of pursuit, to the very exhaustion of mental resources. A new power? Its bare mention is an arousing signal to the devotees of science, and upon the first scintillation of plausibility, the midnight lamp will burn throughout Christendom, till its capabilities and subserviency to man's actual wants are unfolded. No! The tempter knows his game. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
