Third category - Cases in which personal consciousness is transferred to the phantom.
Case IX. - I take it from the Light (1903, p. 34). It refers to a feeling of duplication that occurs following chloroform inhalations. Dr. George Wyld describes it this way:

I didn't, because I now knew and knew for sure that these were real facts..."
