A description of the experience
Death and its Mystery, At the Moment of Death; Manifestations and Apparitions of the Dying – Camille Flammarion
from Physiologie, Medecine et Metaphysique du magnetisme – Dr Charpignon
On one occasion, one of our somnambulists from Orleans wished, in one of her trances, to go to see her sister, who was in Blois. She knew the road and followed it mentally.
‘Why!’ she cried ‘where is Monsieur Jouanneau going, anyway?’
‘Where are you?’
‘I’m at Meung, near les Mauves and I came upon Monsieur Jouanneau, all dressed up; doubtless he’s going to dine at some chateau’.
Then she continued her trip.
Now the person who had shown himself spontaneously to the somnambulist was a native of Meung, known by several persons present and letters were immediately written in order to learn from him if he really was taking a walk at the time given and the place designated.
His reply confirmed minutely what had been said.
