Skeptics will tell you that astral travel, the projecting of
consciousness beyond the body, is absurd. Others profess to have
done it and have compelling evidence to verify their claims.
Connected to the body by a psychic umbilical cord or silver thread,
the astral traveler is able to collapse time and space. Impossible?
Consider the case of Mrs. Wilmot. Bound from Liverpool to New York
in 1863, the ship THE CITY OF LIMERICK ran into a fierce North
Atlantic storm. When the storm began to abate, Mr. Wilmot, a
passenger, was able to enjoy a night's sleep. He awoke in the early
morning hours to see his wife, wearing her nightclothes, enter his
state-room. She went to his bedside, kissed him tenderly, and
vanished. Mr. Wilmot's roommate was shaken -- convinced he'd seen a
ghost. When Mr. Wilmot arrived home, his wife surprised him by
asking if he'd had a visit from her while at sea. Fearing for his
safety, she had decided to find her husband and projected her mind to
his stateroom. Explanation: UNKNOWN.
When the ocean liner Titanic left Southampton on her maiden voyage on
April 10th of 1912, a novel had foretold her fate with uncanny
accuracy. Coincidence or something far more extraordinary?
A floating palace sailed from Southampton in 1889 on her maiden
voyage. She was the largest, grandest liner ever built, and
passengers savored her luxury as they journeyed to America. But the
ship never reached her destination: her hull was ripped open by an
iceberg and she sank with heavy loss of life. That liner existed
only on paper, in the imagination of novelist Morgan Robertson. His
fictional ship? The Titan. And the novel? Futility. Both the
fiction and futility were to become terrifying fact. Fourteen years
later a real luxury liner set out on the same maiden voyage with
nearly 3000 passengers on board. She, to rammed an iceberg and sank,
and, as in Robertson's novel, the loss of life was staggering as
there were not enough lifeboats. It was the night of April 10th,
1912. The ship was the RMS Titanic. The fictional Titan is a near
match in size, speed, and capacity to the Titanic. Both were
considered "unsinkable" and both sank in the same spot in the North
Atlantic. Explanation: UNKNOWN.
