A description of the experience
The Seeress of Prevorst [translated by Catherine Crowe]
And why should there not be a language like that the Seeress describes, which expresses, by its words and characters, the powers and gradations of physical nature ; so that, by hearing or reading the words, the existing properties of the thing are immediately presented to the mind? A representative, or pictorial language, must necessarily express an entire system, in a few words; and there may thus be magical words, which comprise both the spirit and the power of holiness; and an amulet may be only a holy cipher, or property in nature, emitting the name and virtue of the true faith.
