THE M

of

as
the
Basis
of
all Diversity and Appar-ent Fate
is
the
title of a book published
at
Vienna in
tlie
year
1882.
The
pref ~
is
dated
February, in curiously exact coin-. cidence with the formation of the Society for Psychkal Research. The
writer
is

Hellen bach, usually designated Baron Hellen·bach. · He
is.
the author of several .other works. The only one of these which has been translated into English,

as

of Form of Perception The Magic
of
Numbers
commences ;with a
b_rief
Preface
of
two pages,
and
a short Introduction
of
six pages, the object of which
is
to prevent the reader beingmisled
at
the outset
by
the quaint
title
of the book, artd
to
indicate its purport. The following paragraphs are
not
a translation of these eight pages,
but
are intended, in the
form·
of an abstract, to convey the ideas
of

will be still more insecure,
but
be
will
have a wider outlook. These various
e:g:periences
cannot
be
enjoyed
at
the saine time.
My
choice
is,
for my reader and myself,
to
.ascend
in
a balloon,
but
it
shall be a ·captive one.
We
will
not

In
order
to
travel safely
we
will look out for a fit place to anchor the balloon, and so
not

the
early chapters. Possibly after

for
