A description of the experience
Flammarion, C., Carroll, L [transl], - Death and its mystery: before death, proofs of the existence of the soul
Here is one more case reported by Dr G de Messimy, and observed by him in a patient in a state of somnambulism:
My subject’s lucidity went so far as even to read the thoughts of those present . . . Having placed twelve members of the society before the subject . . . . we asked each one of them to think freely of a chosen flower, without telling its name to anyone . . . . .Then turning toward the subject, we asked him to name out loud the flower each of these persons had thought about, and he named them all, without the least hesitation and without making a single mistake, as if he were reading from a book of human thought.
