isis unveiled: chapter v (one common origin)

“If some persons object to the explanation on the ground that the fakir could by no means create the model in his imagination, since he was kept ignorant by Jacolliot of the kind of seed he had selected for the experiment; to these we will answer that the spirit of man is like that of his Creator – omniscient in its essence.

While in his natural state the fakir did not know whether it was a melon seed, or a seed of any other plant; once entranced, i.e., bodily dead to all outward appearances – the spirit, for which there exists neither distance, material obstacle, nor space of time, experienced no difficulty in perceiving the melon-seed, whether as it lay deeply buried in the mud of the flower-pot, or reflected in the faithful picture-gallery of Jacolliot’s brain.

Our visions, portents, and other psychological phenomena, all of which exist in nature, are corroborative of the above fact.”

H. P. Blavatsky
