glories they beheld and conceived, and which they confounded with, or to be the very God, was but the dark shadow shielding him"from view in the penetralia of mystery! Man, not God, is concentrated, focalized fire, - a condensation and crystallization of God's Nervous Fluid; and everything, especially the human soul, is a form of that fire. But man, as we know him here, is not the only self-consciousness in being; nor is this the best or worst of worlds. There are, and the LErial spaces abound with, multiform intelligences, having their conscious origin in LEthereal realms, aswe have ours in matter. But as the divine Fire is the base of all alike j and as love and interfusion is the destiny of all, it follows that there is one common point where the sub-human, human, and ultra-human can contact each other and meet j and this point is that of interblending, for that one point everywhere, and in all things, is the only one thing common to all which exist as living entities anywhere. It follows again that the higher the motives urging us when that universal duty is accomplished, the more powerful is the prayer it really is j the higher it reaches j the more it brings us en rapport with the blessed ones of the purer .J.E'rH, and the greater rain of goodness, power, health, life, mystic enjoyment, and all possible good it calls down upon our heads to saturate our souls. But there are grades of these ultra-human orders, towering away from our place and position in the eternal scale, in series vast, inconceivable, of Orders, Societies, Grades, Hierarchies,. to an unimaginable Eterne j and other series descending to an equally unimaginable deep of the opposites of what we call goodness j and these, too, meet us on one common ground as the others j and can and do, when we give lust the rein, instead of love, ascend from the depths to us, and infuse us with strange ills and evils. The White Magic, which I here reveal, teaches how to rapport the good. The Black Magic of Africa and America (V oudooism) rapports us with the denizens of hell j and crime and wretchedness as surely flow out from the one affiliation, as the good flows forth from theother. I have made this revelation here, because it will do good, and afford a new field for the explorations of such as are interested in solving the tremendous problem of evil, its nature and origin.

XXXVIII. I have already told the world herein and elsewhere[in U Soul, the Soul-world, and Homes of the Dead;" a reprint and enlargement of the original volume "Dealings with the Dead"]that the seat of hnman consciousness is in the brain, - that it is a polar world or globe of white diamondesque fire in the human head. It is Sllbject' to two states, a positive and negative, masculine or electric ; and a feminine, magnetic, or womanesque state, In its intellectual or male mood, it thunders forth its edicts from its throne in the brain, the central point of the head. But in its most aweinspiring, creative and mystic moods, its fiats are given forth from another seat within the body. The brain is its throne of Force j the pelvis its scat of POWER! In sleep, especially that which is healthful, therefore dreamless, the soul sends a fibril of fire - an incandescent railway, from the corpus calossum to the medulla oblongata, down the spinal marrow to right back of the stomach; to the solar plexus, - the great storehouse where the servants of the body bring all the treasures they have gathered during the wakeful day, from the various laboratories,- stomach, intestines, ovaria, nerve-ganglia, lungs, liver, testes, arteries; and there the soul charges the fine aroma with its own lifo, and sends them back to become parts and portions of the living bcing; it imparts life-fire to every section of the human frame, After this the soul sometimcs sends a filamental cord out ir.to the air, above the earth, and on that ladder of light mounts the azure, and scans and contemplates distant scenes, and occasionally unfathomable mystery itself! Hence all dreams, could we translate them, have a fixed and determinate meaning. But there is a farther revelation to be made right here. If human interblending occurs while weary, half asleep, vexed, anxious, distrustful, suspicious, thinking of moncy, or in an excited, passionate or mental state, two things are likely to occur, l.c., pregnancy, - in which case the child is sure to come here and stay here, die here, and go to the other world, and remain there, for centuries perhapshalf asleep, vexed, anxious, distrustful, suspicious, and mentally or otherwise excited all the livelong years; for although the woman builds up the child, the father invariably imparts the bias, hecause:-

XXXIX. In the beginning of the marriage every fibre of his body sends a spiritual- material portion of itself to the le_ft half of the prostate gland, and his spiritual, emotional, soul and mind send corresponding portions of themselves to the right half of the prostate, and at the exact instant that these all meet at that point, the nerve-vital muscles spasmodically contract, and the procreative fluid passing through ••takes with it the prostatic exudations, and the immortal being is thus charged with a joyous load of heaven, or a grievous burden of intolerable horrors. But impregnation may not occur j y~t?e fl~4~_thus charged, al!d._~~~bflrged, are absorbed in great measure by the innumerable mouths and ducts of the vaginal parietes;-and she absorbs his physical, mental a~d moral poisons as 'surely as if the hu sband was freighted down with syphilitic virus;'only that the one eats away and cankers her flesh j wh~te the other -.-; _. corrodes her soul! ..

Well? Reply: By an effort of the will the male can prevent the prostatic flow j and, secondly, the wife by becoming mentally positive at the crisis, and willing that she ought not, must not, will not conceive, cannot; or that she will not absorb that which will impair her mental or physical health-cannot so absorb it.

wifehood. I have already alluded to the ability of a. woman to utterly ruin any man her soul loathes. and hates, under precisely the same circumstances; for it lies within her power to make or mar the best man living. I have seen it tried, in both the make and the mar, and with results magnificent in the one case, and insufferably poignant in the other. Thus man, by love all the time, but especially then, can wholly modify woman's character, and !indle her ice to a gentle, constant and invigorant flame. But carelessness and ignorance on the part of many millions of wives, in some sense, make them responsible for their own miseries; for they all have the ability to resist the depleting effects of pestilent vampyrism, and avoid all the diseases, disasters and ailments, mental, moral, physical and emotional, thus engendered ; and also to wholly transform the nature and character of almost any man, no matter how coarse, inconsiderate, careless, indifferent or mean. In declaring these new and. weighty truths I victoriously plant the white banner over the frowning ramparts of the social world. Why? How? Attend: XLI. Because almost everywhere in this broad land marriage practically exists as a repressive system; it is all head, and the man is that head, while the wife is but an appendage, and by no means either partner or equal; and, so long as such is the case, things will not grow better, because happiness is what every one seeks for, and if not found at the fireside at home will be" searched for elsewhere. Now I want to stop all that by showing the law underlying human weal as it has never been shown before on earth. The system of marriage should be one of absolute equality and partnership between couples. I want to help along that system; for the one now in vogue practically drives enormous hosts of people to heaven across lots, over steep-down gulfs of social and domestic horror. I am teaching all to avoid such. . On the marriage question, as mainly discussed at present, there is too much everlasting gabble on the horrors of deformity in all parts of the social machine; but I seek to make people purer, nobler, truer, and draw, not drive, them heavenward by appeals to the good, the true, and the beautiful latent

within them, and which, when active, brings bliss to every beating heart. XLII. Too many marriagees concern themselves about mourning; I wish them to be deeply, continually interested about joy. They think mainly concerning how to make the best of a bad bargain; bearing life's crosses; abiding with befitting patience to the end, ~nd all that iGYhile I am teaching them how to make a bad bargain an exceedingly good on.:J how to neutralize the social poisons by wholesale - and the worst of them are generated at home; and all through the triple white magic of Love, will, and persistent trying; that is, to cure their ills by the constant exercise 0'£ common sense, which, it seems, after all, is a very uncommon thing, judging by the stupid way in which nine married couples out of every ten totally ignore its clear and plain behests; for common sense is the genius of the average mind, and is an excellent guide to go by. XLIII. I have said, and it is true, that the other, the feminine, magnetic, and, therefore, superior pole, or polar dwelling, of the viewless soul of human kind, is in the genital system of each sex respectively; whence it follows that in all nuptial unions, where true love reigns and rules, governs and controls, the entire beings of each • party, the entire soul of each officiates at the banquet, and the celebration ; wherefore, both the positive and negative powers and forces of each party assist at the-:-in the-incarnation of the new soul, if a new soul is then and there called into outer being, to run the gauntlet of time in its race to the fields of eternity; and all such generation is holy j and, it being a g~nuine marriage, none but truly human children are called into the world. But where no love inspires the parents, only one of the two grand forces of their souls officiate either in, or at, the generation of their mutual offspring; and such children are death-sure to be deficient in some quality, and to pay through lives mC?reor less angular, limited, and bitterjfor th; sins ~f their _p;re~~ and theirprofanation of the holiest of all human sanctities, and violation of the grandest and deepest law of the human world-that of Love j from such conditions it happens that the lands are "teeming with half-men, halfwomen, and abound in human weaklings.
