Thanks Daniel !
Good posting Mead does make this comment in the forward of the book, interesting to
know now who he was referring to

their subtler senses, to a greater or less degree, more fully developed than is normally the
case, and also to be intimate with a few whose power of response to extra-normal ranges

to be more than ordinarily sacred for all who profess to be lovers of truth and labourers
for our common welfare. Nor again is there any question here of their trying to influence
some prospective "follower," either of themselves, or of some particular sect, for we are
more or less contemporaries in similar studies, and one of our common ideals is the
desirability of breaking down the boundary walls of sectarianism."
