Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
The Book of the Damned - Charles Fort
Lead, silver, diamonds, glass. They sound like the accursed, but they're not: they're now of the chosen--that is, when they occur in metallic or stony masses that Science has recognized as meteorites. We find that resistance is to substances not so mixed in or incorporated. For example
Report of the British Association, 1878-376,
there is mention of a ‘light chocolate-brown substance’ that has fallen with meteorites. No particulars given; not another mention anywhere else that I can find. In this English publication, the word "punk" is not used; the substance is called "amadou." I suppose, if the datum has anywhere been admitted to French publications, the word "amadou" has been avoided, and "punk" used.
