Mrs. Quentin - I felt myself floating in the air, stretched out over my body, looking at it, and perfectly aware of what was around me, what I felt was a delicious feeling of absolute freedom

Third category - Cases in which personal consciousness is transferred to the phantom.
Case VIII. - This is an example of the sensation of "duplication" in the resting state and under apparently normal conditions. I extract it from the Journal of the American S. P. R. (1908, p. 405). The percipient, Mrs. Quentin, is a distinguished woman, personally known to Professor Hyslop, and endowed with particular forms of supernormal sensitivity. She writes:
"Four or five times, lying down, I had the indescribable feeling of being apparently separated from my body. I felt myself floating in the air, stretched out over my body, looking at it, and perfectly aware of what was around me. What I felt was a delicious feeling of absolute freedom, although a certain effort on my part was necessary to sustain it. After a short time, I felt a strange feeling of something undefinable, which pushed me to return to myself, and then I found myself thinking: "I have to go back to my body". I am convinced that I have succeeded in extending this period of freedom by an effort of will, but for a short time, because - as I said - something happened in me that forced me to gradually re-enter my body."
