Ever wonder what really happens when you dream, or when death occurs? And why do affirmations work for certain people and in certain circumstances, but not for everyone and all the time?

What Myers tried to do is to render knowledge more easily gained by coordinating it in a form as clear and intelligible as his own limited skill and the nature of the facts themselves permitted. WillisHarmanlisted Human Personality and its Survival of Bodily Death as among the ''pioneering books in the exploration of supraconscious processes,'' along with two contemporaneousclassics,R. As WilliamJames forcefully argued, Myers made the first attempts to map out the full range of thesubliminalmindasauniversalhumanphenomenon.
Intheprocess, he''quiteoverturnstheclassicalnotionofwhatthehumanmindconsists in,''makingtheunconsciousnotsecondarybutcentral. Myers was interested in psychical research and was one of the founding members of the Society for Psychical Research SPR in He became the President in Myers psychical ideas and theory of a subliminal self did not impress contemporary psychologists. Psychologists who shared an interest in psychical research such as Theodore Flournoy and William James were influenced by Myers.
This work comprises two large volumes at 1, pages in length and presents an overview of Myers's research into the unconscious mind. In the book, Myers believed he had provided evidence for the existence of the soul and survival of personality after death. Surveying the whole wide range of mental phenomena, the singular alterations and disintegrations of personality in disease, its evident limitations of faculty, counter-balanced at times by seemingly supernatural extension of faculty, Myers saw valid reason for asserting that the self of which we are normally aware - the self which one has in mind when he speaks of 'my self' - in is reality only a split-off from a larger self, just as the 'secondary personalities' of hypnotism and hysteria are split-offs from the self of everyday life.
And to this larger self, the subliminal self, he referred, on the one hand, the intellectual uprushes and outpourings of genius and the achievements of humanity in time of stress, when, as the phrase is, a man seems to be 'lifted out of himself,' inspired with new energy, and capable of accomplishing deeds he had never dreamed possible to him; and, on the other hand, Myers likewise attributed to the subliminal self, as a faculty peculiarly its own, the power of telepathically transmitting messages from mind to mind and receiving and retaining them until some favoring condition permitted their presentation to the ordinary consciousness.
No one we venture to say will be persuaded by this book that does not end all, if not persuaded already. For faith is not belief in the existence of a religion beyond the reach of the senses. It is present intercourse with a living personality who is in the unseen, who has passed through bodily death. It is neither merely intellectual, nor merely emotional, it is the response of the whole personality to the personality now in the Beyond.
That is the assurance of survival. There is no other; nor can be And yet, how fascinating the book is. How unanswerable its many cases.

Tros, ait, Aenea, cessas? Neque enim ante dehiscent. The impassioned effort and the conquering prayer? That Power within them burst upon the soul. Myers, published in London by Longmans, Green in , is a major classic of early psychical research and indeed of psychology in general. Although it was published two years after Myers's death, most of it had been finished and was ready for publication at the time of his passing.
IN the long story of man's endeavours to understand his own environment and to govern his own fates, there is one gap or omission so singular that, however we may afterwards contrive to explain the fact, its simple statement has the air of a paradox. Yet it is strictly true to say that man has never yet applied to the problems which most profoundly concern him those methods of inquiry which in attacking all other problems he has found the most efficacious. The question for man most momentous of all is whether or no he has an immortal soul; or—. In this direction have always lain the gravest fears, the farthest-reaching hopes, which could either oppress or stimulate mortal minds. On the other hand, the method which our race has found most effective in acquiring knowledge is by this time familiar to all men. It is the method of modern Science—that process which consists in an interrogation of Nature entirely dispassionate, patient, systematic; such careful experiment and cumulative record as can often elicit from her slightest indications her deepest truths.
