Viewing Distant Scenes

A writer has said of this form of clairvoyant perception: "The view of a

distant scene obtained in this way is in many ways not unlike that seen

through a telescope. Human figures usually appear very small, like those

upon a distant stage, but in spite of their diminutive size they are

clear as though they were close by. Sometimes it is possible by this

means to hear what is said as well as to see what is done; but as in the
br /> majority of cases this does not happen, we must consider it rather as

the manifestation of an additional power than as a necessary corollary

of the faculty of sight. It will be observed that in cases of this kind

the clairvoyant does not actually leave his physical body at all--he

simply manufactures for himself, and uses, a kind of psychic telescope.

Consequently he has the use of his physical powers while he is examining

the distant scene; for example, his voice usually describes what he sees

even while he is in the act of making the observation."
