    Without it there can be no psychic phenomena beyond the exercise of the purely animal instinct. We speak of one having a mania for certain things; that is, he has subjectified so much desire along some particular line that he becomes controlled by the very power which he has set in motion. A I DO not expect this book to stand upon its literary merits; for if it is unsound in principle, felicity of diction cannot save it, and if sound, homeliness of expression cannot destroy it. He was admitted to the bar at twenty-three and practiced as an attorney and journalist in Port Huron, Ohio, until - the year he entered politics. The Society numbers among its membership many of the ablest scientists now living.

    There are as many colors in the aura as there are varying degrees of thought-activity in the mentality. If the practice of chemistry on the basis of the theory were defective in its practical results, or failed in universal application, it would then be the duty of scientists to discard it entirely, and to seek a better working hypothesis. Even so, he was able to effectively communicate to those of "his time", and his writing is just as effectively communicated to us today. It is very important that we understand this; for each person in his objective state is a distinct and individualized center in Universal Mind; but in his subjective state every one, in his stream of consciousness, or at his rate of vibration, is universal, because of the Indivisibility of Mind. Whatever the nature of the subjective may be, we did not make and we cannot change it; we shall be compelled to use this force, like all other forces in nature, according to its own laws, and not according to the way we think it should act.

    TABLE TIPPING Table tipping is so common as to cause but little comment, but it does help to prove a principle of mind, namely, that an object can be moved about from place to place without the aid of any physical contact. That psychic phenomena are caused by some form of mental power, there can be no question; and the student of the workings of mind will rest content here, knowing that mental power can operate in independence of the physical instrument; for this is the great lesson to learn. This does not mean that Mind is an illusion, but that it might present us with an illusion unless we are very careful and are quite sure that what we are looking at is a real form and not simply a picture. Many theories have been advanced, it is true, to account for the various classes of phenomena which have been observed. To deny these inner attributes is not only intolerant, but is downright ignorance. Happily, but few people can listen in mentally, and these few only with more or less certainty of success.

He remained with the Patent Office for thirteen years, rising to the position of Principal Examiner and in charge of one of the scientific divisions of that office.

When we look at a picture of a person we are not looking at the person, but at a likeness of him. When this rises to the surface of conscious intelligence, it is called mental telepathy. It is safe to say, however, that no two individuals, whether believers or unbelievers in the generic doctrine of spiritism, exactly agree as to the ultimate cause of the phenomena.

Everything has an atmosphere which we sense and to which we react accordingly; if it is pleasant we like it, and if unpleasant we dislike it. They too have accumulated facts and discovered principles of vast importance, especially in the field of mental therapeutics, - principles which also throw a flood of light upon the general subject of Psychology.

The psychic often tells just how she looked while in the flesh. Reincarnation : The rebirth of a soul or other non-physical aspect of human consciousness in a new physical body after death.

But this is the logical, deductive, conclusive power of their subjective thought, seeing a thing completed, by first seeing a tendency set in motion, and computing the time that it will take to complete it.

Upon this board is placed a small, pear-shaped, three-legged instrument, which points to the letters and spells out words. The subjective mind of the individual is the working of Instinctive Man within him, plus all of his conscious and subconscious experiences. I have no doubt but this theory is correct as far as it goes; but am not willing to advance it as being sufficient to explain all the phenomena.

We could not imagine a great poem written mechanically. Personally, I prefer to accept the theory that we have a mental body, since this appeals p. No one ever saw, felt, tasted, or smelled an atom. This explains why many unbelieving investigators fail to receive the desired results, and go away saying that the whole thing is a fraud.

We do not have two minds, but we do have a dual aspect of mentality in what we call the objective and subjective phases of mind. May Frances Turner positioned herself in the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory whilst Sara Ownbey claimed to receive transmissions miles away.

These people might be in the flesh or out of it. In subsequent chapters of this book it will be shown that this fact supplies the missing link in the chain of propositions necessary for a complete working hypothesis for the subject under consideration.

What the Newtonian hypothesis did for astronomy, the atomic theory has done for chemistry. The following propositions, therefore, will not be disputed by any intelligent student of hypnotism: 1.

But there must be a mental tuning in, so to speak, just as there must be in radio. A person may create such a strong desire that it will compel him to put it into execution; this is called mania. The London Society for Psychical Research, whose ramifications extend all over the civilized world, was organized for the purpose of making a systematic search for that law.

He was admitted to the bar at twenty-three and practiced as an attorney and journalist in Port Huron, Ohio, until - the year he entered politics. It is the same with the mountains, the lakes and the trackless deep. I cannot but be aware that my conclusions sometimes oppose the preconceived opinions of others.Psychical researcher Thomson Jay Hudson is best known for his classic work in the mental science and mental therapeutics field, The Law of Psychic Phenomena, first published in Born Windham, Ohio, USA, February 22,and refusing his father's wish to become a minister of religion, Thomson Jay Hudson had to fund his own study of law at college.

This vast array of facts, thus accumulated and verified, and awaiting scientific classification and analysis, would seem to justify at least a tentative effort to apply to them the processes of induction, to the end that the fundamental law of psychic phenomena may be sylvaindez.com: Thomson Hudson.

The Law of Psychic Phenomena is a classic work in the field of psychic manifestations of the human intellect. The author, Dr. Thomson Jay Hudson, Ph.D., LL.D., was the acknowledged autority in the field of metaphysics when he wrote this book in the late years of the 19th century.

Jun 30,  · In the Law of Psychic Phenomena by author Thomas Jay Hudson, Hudson has attempted to create a classification of verified psychic phenomena, accounts of which is found in the literature current on the subject; and has tentatively formulated a working hypothesis for the systematic study of all classes of psychic phenomena.4/5(4).

Jul 21,  · The Law of Psychic Phenomena I was intrigued and convinced by the arguments and scientific research that the author presented on the subject of the nuts and bolts of why and how hypnotism and mesmerism works and how it can be very helpful for therapeutic purposes and healing.4/4(1).

The Law of Psychic Phenomena by Thomson Hudson was a powerful influence on Thomas Troward, Ernest Holmes and many others in the New Thought movement. Hudson coined the terms "subjective thought" and "objective thought" which were essential to the Holmes brothers' Religious Science extension of Bascom's Science of Mind.
