The subject of supersight falls under three divisions: first, tradition—the stories and legends which refer to a
Third Eye,
 or a supersight of man; second, the anatomical and physiological possibilities of the existence of such an organ; third, the function or purpose of the organ.We shall proceed with our explanation in this order. Of all of our sense perceptions or objective faculties, sight seems to be the most dominant and important to us. This is particularly so in the number of qualities which sight assigns to objects. Sight and touch alone of the five facub ties convey the idea of dimensions. Sight, of course, has its forms, or the shapes and proportions it confers upon things. Touch also has its qualities, such as hard, soft, cold, hot, et cetera. However, sight makes possible, at the same time, through suggestion and association of ideas, the varied other qualities of our objective senses, with' out bringing them to bear. For example, if we see a beautiful flower at some distance from us, we not only perceive its form and coloring, but by suggestion we recall other beautiful flowers, the fragrance of which we have
experienced. We then think of this particular flower as pleasant smelling as well. If we look upon an ingeniously made wax apple, without knowing it is a model, we not only see its form and its coloring, but the sight sensations recall memory experiences of the sweet taste of a similar real apple. Sight, therefore, gives the objects we perceive, directly and indirectly, more qualities than do the sensa- tions coming to us through the medium of our other senses.Likewise, we know that in the human certain of our basic instincts are more easily aroused through sight than through any of our other peripheral faculties. On the other hand, a dog will not rely upon his sense of sight to determine whether an individual is a friend or foe, but will resort to his sense of smell, especially if there is something visually unfamiliar in the person’s appearance. Since human emotions are aroused more easily through sight, the ancients considered the sight organs, or eyes, as direct channels to the soul, because the soul was thought to be the seat of emotions. In fact, Democritus declared, in his doctrine of images, that our visual perceptions were caused by external objects casting off images or shells of themselves, which entered organs arranged to accommo- date them. These images, Democritus contended, after en tering the eyes, caused the soul to become shaken, and in consequence man had the sensations or sense experiences.With little modification, this doctrine of images lasted until the time of Locke. The eyes were thought to be windows of the soul, as Leonardo da Vinci said in his now classical expression. They were not only considered by the ancients to be orifices to admit external objects or in fluences, but permitted the exit of forces or strange powers from the soul. This appeared a verisimilitude, because the eyes, in their expressions, do reveal intense human emo tions, no matter how immobile the facial muscles, or otherwise motionless is the body.In antiquity, centuries before the doctrines of Mesmer, telesthesia, or mental telepathy were known, it was held that thoughts which engendered intense feeling or emo tion created an ethereal, invisible substance, which was transmitted from the mortal. Thus certain sentiments and passions were said to be projected through the eyes. Out standing among these transmitted passions was hatred. There is still the common phrase: “If looks could kill,” implying that the glance was malevolent. This phrase was not just a simile to the ancient Egyptians, nor is it even to day to superstitious peoples of the Oriental lands. The eyes of a hateful or evil man were conceived to be destruc tive to all who came within their range of vision. To have such eyes look upon you was to become accursed with ill fortune. After death, these “evil eyes” separated them selves from the body, it was believed, and continued to
