Supernormal faculties in Man- Dr Eugene Osty
What abundant documentation might have been given in the years preceding 1914 if the study of metagnomy had been more extensively known and experimentally applied.
If there were one event common to many human lives and having widely different reaction, it was this bestial madness for mutual slaughter. What prophet proclaimed its coming, its circumstances, and its results?
One only, as far as I know, and as far as one may rely on human testimony-M. Leon Sonrel, who, on July 21st, 1869, in a kind of spontaneous ecstatic state, seized upon the whole future development of the life of his friend, Dr. Amedde Tardieu, and announced to him the second great war in its relation to an episode of Dr. Tardieu's life.
It was in relation to an individual life that Sonrel took cognizance of the war still far distant in time.
It would seem that if Dr. Tardieu had not had to live through the war, Sonrel would have had no knowledge of its coming.
But no metagnomic subject seems to have foreseen the war as a collective fact, none predicted its development, and when it had begun none were found to give information on its successive phases.
Those who esteemed themselves prophets and tried to do this, contradicted each other, and all were wrong. The detractors of psychic science were triumphant, psychists were confounded and did not understand.
