Astral Projection is a subject that I always thought fascinating. So after I installed the kindle application into my portable devices, this ebook was a no brainier for me. However, you must be forewarned that the book is dated 1895, and as such very wordy and repetitive at times. Regardless, it delivers.
This ebook uses a clear, easy to read font type. Paragraphs wraps around well. The title of each chapter is all caps bold, but remain on the same type case. It has a table of contents that is hyperlinked, and easy to use. It contains no pictures.
The hyperlinked table of contents include:
Chapter I A General Survey
Chapter II Scenery
Chapter III Inhabitants
Chapter IV Phenomena
Chapter V Conclusion
The Astral Planes are described with some detail in Chapter II. In Chapter III, the author describes the inhabitants of the astral planes including human such as the living (adepts, psychically-developed people, ordinary people, and black magicians), and the dead (nirmanakaya, adepts, ordinary people, shades, shells, vitalized shells, suicides, vampires and werewolves, man in the grey world, and black magicians); non-human such as elemental essence, animals, nature spirits, and devas; and Artificial such as elementals, and human artificials.
Interesting enough, Chapter IV presents the author thoughts about a wide range of phenomena including churchyard ghost, apparitions, haunted localities, family ghosts, bell-ringing, fairies, communicating entities, astral resources, clairvoyance, second-sight, astral forces, etheric currents, etheric pressure, Latent energy, sympathetic vibration, mantras, disintegration, materialization, why darkness is required, spirit photographs, reduplication, precipitation, slate-writing, levitation, spirit lights, handling fire, transmutation, and repercussion.
In all, there is a lot of interesting material which is somewhat hindered by its presentation.
