In Bethesda Naval Hospital I worked on a couple of people in the fall of 1949, and one of these gentlemen gave me the most remarkable tale I ever heard in my life. He went on back, and I suppose he would have wound up as a cave man if I had let him keep on going. His material had no somatics on it, beside an occasional little emotional shakeup, but he was going back and getting killed and he was being born and he was riding it on all the way through. I left him in the Roman Republic! Fortunately the physical pain connected with this was zero.
After thinking about it later, it appeared to me very, very interesting that there is something in each one of us which extends all the way back to the dawn of time. There is no reason why there shouldn’t be recordings on that protoplasm. The only trouble is that people keep registering death, and I am absolutely certain that in the past it has not been a practice to breed children from a dead man!
As a consequence, are we knocking on the door of the human soul? Or are we knocking on the door of delusion? It is one or the other.
If these earlier sequences are to be accepted–and many of them are as brilliantly clear or much clearer than incidents that come later–then we are working with something like transmigration.1
