A Theory of the Mechanism of Survival: The Fourth Dimension and its Applications

    Abstract

    THERE is nothing striking or new in this argument, neither is there any thing extravagant in its application. The author expounds in a clear and easy manner the familiar notions of flatland and of a possible fourth dimension, and suggests that a hypothesis is necessary to explain the somewhat doubtful phenomena with which psychical research deals. These notions, he thinks, afford the basis of a hypothesis.
