Isis Unveiled: chapter II (A Deeper Philosophy)

“The lives of Paracelsus, Cornelius Agrippa, and Philalethes are too well known to repeat the old, sad story. If spiritualists are anxious to keep strictly dogmatic in their notions of the “spirit-world”, they must not set scientists to investigate their phenomena in the true experimental spirit. The attempt would most surely result in a partial rediscovery of the magic of old – that of Moses and Paracelsus.

 
Under the deceptive beauty of some of their apparitions, they might find some day the sylphs and fair Undines of the Rosicrucians playing in the currents of psychic and odic force.

 
Already Mr. Crookes, who fully credits the being, feels that under the fair skin of Katie, covering a simulacrum of heart borrowed partially from the medium and the circle, there is no soul! And the learned authors of The Unseen Universe, abandoning their “electro-biological” theory, begin to perceive in the universal ether the possibility that it is a photographic album of EN-SOPH – the Boundless.”

 
H. P. Blavatsky
