[Persecution of religions was instituted by Catholics & by (Catholic-derived) Protestants.] "at the hands of extremely powerful legions of reactionaries, the implacable persecution of sensitives and projectors, generalized witch hunting (most notably throughout Europe) {N.B. Witch-hunting occurred only in the Roman-Catholic (and in Protestant) parts of Europe, not in the Eastern Orthodox areas of Europe.} ... and erroneous traditions arose as never before."

p. 61

"the American Quaker minister, Thomas Say (1709-1796), who left a detailed report of a lucid projection".


"the Swedish philosopher, theologian and seer ..., Emanuel Swedenborg (1688-1772) ... left ... reports ..., notably "Diarii Spiritualis" (5 volumes), in which he narrated many of his lucid projections".


"the lucid projection experience was established in the supernatural condition ... by authors ... including the codifier of Spiritism in France, Allan Kardec, or Leon Hypolite Denizard Rivail (1804-1869)."

He knew of the existence of serenissimi (Homo sapiens serenissimi), at that time referred to as the celestial deities or angelic beings. {Neither any caelestial deity or any angelic being is a mortal human, whether serene or otherwise.} ...

He evoked extraphysical beings using the bronze tripod, the ancient three-legged table used by the Pythia of the Oracle of Delphi".

Horore’ de "Balzac used the character Louis Lambert, in his autobiographical novel by the same name" :-

p. 68

translated passage (pp. 71-3 of Gallimard edn) : "if my spirit and my body could separate during sleep, why could I not equally divorce them during the waking state? ... . These facts were verified by a faculty which puts into movement a second being for which my body serves as a housing ... . ... I went through space ... . ... . Will there not be a new science ... that ... illustrates the frequent separation of our two natures ...! Homo duplex!"

pp. 64-66 [The author (W.V.) hath artificially misconstrued some exceedingly vague, indefinite phrases by Nostradamus to apply to projection of the astral-body.]

p. 78

Ever since his thinking soul left his body, ... he could see in all directions at once, his soul being open like one singular eye. ... In this environment, ... the soul approached him, saying : ‘... In truth, you are not dead, you came here by a decree of the gods, with the thinking part of the soul; you left the rest in your body as an anchor. Know, through these signs ... : the souls of the dead do not cast a shadow and their eyes to not blink. {characteristics of belu-s (ogres) : "(2) Eyes that do not blink (3) Eyes that cannot be closed (4) Shadow less" ("FDK")} ... Then he suddenly, as though sucked ... from a siphon, returned to his body and opened his eyes, when he was about to be lowered to his grave."


"A senator of Numidia ... (now Algeria), named Curma, in the fifth century after Christ, as reported by Augustine of Tagaste (354-430), ... for several days ... consciously lived outside his human body."

23. (p. 96) Projectiology and Anthropology

"Dean Shiels compared the beliefs of ... different cultures ... regarding the ability of the double or soul to travel without the human body." [p. 1079 : "SHIELS, Dean; "A Cross-Cultural Study of Beliefs in Out-of-the-Body Experiences"; Journal of the Society for Psychical Research; London; Vol. 49; N. 779; 1978; ... pp. 697-741."]

25. (p. 98) Projectiology and Physics

"In fact, during lucid projection, the physicist can ... reduce the consciousness down to the size of a single molecule, enter into ... and actually directly examine the molecules and atoms that compose it. This is in agreement with that which is observed in projection using the isolated mentalsoma."

26. (p. 99) Projectiology and Astronomy

"The astronomer, through lucid projection in the mentalsoma in the mentalsomatic dimension, can travel to other galaxies (exoprojections) located far beyond the reach of astronomy and even decipher the enigma of extraterrestrial life".

"Remote viewing (traveling clairvoyance) experiments have already been performed with sensitives who have conscientially explored ... planets."

"3 fields that show intense research activity ... :

1. NDE. Near-death experiences (NDE).

2. SLP. ... semilucid projections (SLP).

3. RV. Remote viewing (RV or traveling clairvoyance)."

30. (pp. 108-10) Human Lucid Projection

p. 108

"The study of lucid projection ... represents a direct way toward prioritized self-knowledge or ... an intraconsciential renovation or a way of inner illumination".

p. 109

"Succinctly, lucid projections present approximately 12 basic common occurrences that people ... exhibit a certain reluctance to mention, due to social repression ... :


1. Self-projection. Feel the consciousness (... self-lucidity) leaving the human body (soma) : lucid projection (LP) per se.


2. Primoprojection. ... first lucid projection ... .


3. Self-discoincidence. Feel the separation of the consciousness a short distance from the human body ... .


4. ... Feel that you are above your own human body : extraphysical self-location.


5. ... See your own human body below you : consciential self-bilocation.


6. ... Feel that you are moving to a distant point without using the human body : extraphysical self-translocation.


7. Paravision. ... being able to observe, de visu, in loco, what happens at a distance from your body : extraphysical vision ... .


8. ... Produce physical effects outside the human body, without using the body ... : extraphysical telekinesis (called psychokinesis by some researchers).

p. 110

9. Bilocation. Make other people see you, while in the condition of a projected experimenter ... .


10. Self-apparition. Make the projected consciousness appear, when sense or perceived at a distance by other people, through means other than the dense physical presence ... : inter vivos apparition ... .


11. Self-persuasion. Be certain that you somehow really traveled outside the human body ... .


12. Self-confirmation : Prove the authenticity of your own lucid extracorporeal projection ..., after a detailed comparison of the places, facts, beings and time frame that you experienced at a distance, without the human body".

32. (pp. 111-2) Animal Projection

p. 111

"Animal projection : projection of the rudimentary consciousness ... of the subhuman animal outside its biological body. Synonymy : ... zooprojection."


"Based on the premise ... that animals ... dream; ... it can logically be deduced that higher animals ... possess an extraphysical

p. 112

vehicle of manifestation and project themselves in this vehicle ... in a manner that is analogous to that of the human personality".


one particular instance, involving the author’s own pet : "the little projected dog, possibly due to the author’s exceptionally felicitous realization of the consciential projection ... – leaving ... where its physical body was resting – wanted to follow the author’s psychosoma ..., wishing to lick and rub up against him while wagging its ... tail".


"De-awareness. It is easy to suppose, only as a research hypothesis, that the rudimentary consciousness of the subhuman animal which, as is generally accepted {generally accepted by persons of the type who generally accept all manner of absurd conventional hypotheses}, does not demonstrate well-defined awareness of itself in the ordinary waking state {would this mean that the animal is actually imagining that it is the same being as some other animal? – or is the term "well-defined" intended to imply knowledge of a linguistic definition of the word "self", with the implication that there can be no knowledge that is not linguistic?}, likewise remains devoid of awareness of itself or, in other word, de-aware, ... during the projections of its physical body." {While the animal’s projected body is active, if its activity is not due to awareness of itself (as being a pet, etc.), then its ability for activity would have to be ascribed to spirit-possession of its projection by a possessing-spirit.}

p. 33. (p. 113) Plant Projection

"phytoprojection; projection of the double of a plant. ...

Lucid projection experiences allow the projected human consciousness to personally verify the energetic counterpart of the plant and its exteriorization ... by the projector using the parahands of the psychosoma."

35. (pp. 115-6) Paradoxes of Projectiology

p. 115

"Assistential. Unfortunately, human beings generally help more when they remain nonlucid while projected in the extraphysical dimension – even when helping in extraphysical assistance and operating as nonlucid extraphysical sensitives – than when entirely lucid regarding their liberated condition." {It may well be that the projected subtle body is, in such cases of non-lucidity, being possessed by a deity; just as in the cases of awake spirit-media who are non-lucid (as, non-remembering of a spirit-possession se’ance by a spirit-medium is an indication of the spirit-medium’s having been possessed by a deity).}

p. 116

"Mnemonic. When the projected intraphysical consciousness becomes slightly adept at briefly utilizing the amplitude of reasoning of the integral memory (holomemory), it has difficulty in passing on these recollections to the partial memory of the ordinary, physical waking state (biomemory ...) upon physically awakening. This same consciousness, while enjoying the benefits of the integral memory in the extraphysical dimension, finds it difficult, when there, to revalidate the concepts and appearances that it defends in regard to the issues and facts of intraphysical consciousness ... . If is very difficult, in this case, to make one system of reasoning mesh with the other." {The defectiveness in the system of reasoning erroneously validated (falsely) during one’s intraphysical awareness will have been the result of not perceiving the presence of, and guidance by, deities while awake; leading one to construct, while awake, a metaphysical reasoning ignoring the activities of deities in one’s life. It may be that the deities who have assisted one’s self during the interval (of projection) have done thus so likewise so unobstrusively as to have been quite unnoticed by one’s self; so that in order to dissuade one from falsely conjecturing that one hath performed functions during that interval unassisted, they will obliterate the memory. And, likewise, they will have remained thusly unnoticed during their rendering of assistance, so as not to provoke undue false conjectures by one’s self as concerning their nature and significance. Such conjectures would be more apt to arise as a result of projection than otherwise because the assistances rendered by deities during projections are more readily noticeable (or deducible) than while nonprojecting. (Non-remembering of dreams would be due to the same sorts of causes.)}


"Parapsychological. Every intraphysical consciousness projects every night while sleeping, but remains nonlucid or semilucid outside the human body." {Here, "nonlucid" would mean merely ‘unaware of being outside the material body’; even though the experiencer may be at the same time be having a "lucid dream" (aware of being in a dream)! As for "semilucid" (semiaware of being slightly outside the sleeping material body), I once (at least) realized after dreaming that the dream-scenery may have approximated the arrangement of the waking-world bedroom-furniture. Apparently, any dreaming of being in one’s apartment would be accounted by the author as "semilucid". The author apparently would not consider any sort of "lucid dream" as "lucid projection", not realizing that "lucid dreams" of "false awakening" (which I have undergone often) would fit most of his criteria for "lucid projection".}
