AUTHOR’S PREFACE
THIS volume deals with certain phenomena that one comes across when stepping outof the world of sense to that which lies beyond it; that is, to the supernormal or transcendental, or whatever people prefer to call it.It covers a number of very diverse perceptions; and there are, of course, others beyondthese in so vast a field of research.In this region of supersense, we may expect to find the mind expanding beyondnormal limits, reaching out to individuals over any distance (in a telepathic sense) and picking up threads here and there from bygone periods of history.Likewise, this extended sight reaches out into the future, perceiving what has not asyet come within normal vision. Both these functions touch upon that much-debatedquestion of the nature of Time.Other examples point to the mind being able in some degree to overcome thelimitations of space.Others would suggest that even physical death may no longer prove so formidable a barrier as formerly, in view of these extended powers of the mind.As yet, knowledge along these lines is limited, but there is hope that much may cometo light as research progresses.Taking all in conjunction, we can assume that in this region beyond sense-perceptionthere is at work a definite law or laws, although of a different order from those whichobtain in this world of sense-apprehension.From all this, we may infer that purpose and design are in operation, and that theytouch vitally the life and destiny of mankind.Such order within the universe as we now dimly perceive leaves little place for thesupposition that the phenomena here described are extraneous to modern thought. Itwere truer to say that strange and unclassifiable though many of them appear, theymay eventually prove to have considerable signifcance in their relation to psychology,religion, and other departments of human knowledge.

FOREWORD BY MRS OSBORNE LEONARD
BY writing this excellent and interesting book I feel that Margery Bazett has done agreat service to the general public who are more or less unaware of the possibilities of using the so-called supernormal faculties in everyday life.A large number of people are still under the impression that clairvoyance is amysterious art, practised by somewhat peculiar individuals who seem to be investedwith singular - even sinister - powers, which they exercise within the confines of adark and mysterious room - the séance-room.Apparently, they are unaware that many persons of considerable ability in differentwalks of life, doctors, lawyers, University professors, astute business men, and others,have had psychical experiences of a veridical nature, and are familiar with the power of seeing either past or future, or both, as well as events that are happening at adistance.Judging from the well authenticated and numerous cases which have been recorded -not only in this book but elsewhere - it becomes evident that this faculty oclairvoyance is a natural one, and can be used under natural conditions by perfectlynatural people. The séance-room is merely a laboratory, a quiet place where suitableand harmonious conditions can be assured, unhampered by the noise and distractionsof the outer world. This precaution is necessary when the student or would-beexponent of psychical powers is seeking to study and investigate the subject in anintensive manner, with some definite object in view; but such faculties may functionin every-day life, at any time, through people who have hitherto had no experiencewhatever of seances, nor read any literature on these matters.The question may be asked - What is the use of this “seeing by other eyes” - this perception of the past or of the future?To me it seems that as one enlarges one’s range of vision in such ways, one is able tosee the present in better perspective, and therefore make better use of suchopportunities as may come to one in one’s life. Surely it is vitally important that oneshould learn to perceive Life as a whole, instead of in incomplete sections? Seeing the past and becoming aware of the possibility of seeing people or happenings at adistance that cannot be perceived by the physical sight alone - should bring us nearer to a realisation of the unity of all life - the existence of other spheres - of hithertounexplored conditions in which dwell those whom we have known and loved in their earth lives, and later have mourned, because the physical process called death hasremoved them from the limitations of our physical sight and hearing.By concentrating on the present only, we undoubtedly limit ourselves as much as a pianist would who found himself attempting to interpret a Chopin Prelude on aninstrument from which the two extreme ends of the keyboard had been cut away. Wedeprive ourselves of the fullness and completeness of life that might be ours. It is thissense of incompleteness that often leads to feelings of frustration, and is responsiblefor a great deal of disappointment, perplexity, and depression.
