EXPERIENCES IN SPIRITUALISM WITH MR. D. D. HOME. BY VISCOUNT ADARE, [Windham Thomas Wyndham-Quin 1841-1926] WITH INTRODUCTORY REMARKS BY THE EARL OF DUNRAVEN. [Viscount Adare's father] 
Home is in a trance state.
The substance of Home's conversation after this I forget; it led somehow to his saving, “When this zone shall have become torrid, of course the forms of animal and vegetable life, will be much changed."
Question: “Do you mean that the temperature is changing ?"
“Oh, yes, these will be the torrid zones, and the torrid zones will become cooler; there is a very marked change taking place now."
Question : “I suppose the change will be so gradual, that life will not be affected ?"
“Life will not be affected, the change is gradual, but it is quite apparent to us."
Question: Has the heat of the two last seasons anything to do with this, or was it quite abnormal?"
“No, it was not entirely abnormal, it had to do with the great change that is taking place."
Question: “Then will the frigid zones round the poles become warmer?"
“Oh yes. Certainly; do you know it is true that there is land to the North beyond where explorers have yet penetrated, and there are tribes of men living there, and they yet retain the traces of a by-gone civilization. They are of the old Semitic or original Hebrew race."
Question : “ But how could they ever get there; it could not have been in historic times?"
In answer to this question, I distinctly heard a voice quite different to Home's say, “Oh dear, no," Home said, “Did you hear him ? "
“Yes" I answered, ”I heard him quite plain."
“I am glad you did; he said ‘Oh dear, no.’ He is rather difficult to understand, this spirit; he seems a little confused, but he declares he has seen these people, and that he could bring the spirit of one of them with him. He says there are distinct traces of Hebrew to be found in their language. You know there are traces of the old original Hebrew in the language of the Brahmins. The ancient Hebraic tribes were a most migratory people, always wandering and fighting; their idea even of God was a warlike, bloodthirsty being, and they were always fighting and quarrelling among themselves and their neighbours, and, doing so in the name of the Lord. They have wandered all over the earth, and. have left their marks in many places. There are signs of a civilization that you know nothing of in North America: it was derived from the same source. Historians have conjectured that they crossed the narrow channel of a few miles in breadth; and they are correct. As to those people I spoke of in the North, they penetrated there long before History; oh, there were lions and tigers in these latitudes at that time. The Hebrews were very bad historians; they kept no records; tradition served as history for them, even in very much later times; they were very careless, and kept their records very badly."
