To Materialize Thought
Annie Besant, the Theosophist, Asserts That It Will Soon Be Done
New York, Nov. 29. — [Special]—Theosophically inclined people gathered in Chickering Hall to-night to hear Mrs. Annie Besant deliver her lecture on “Reincarnation.” Among those present were Ella Wheeler Wilcox, Marshall P. Wilder, S.S. Packard, Mrs. D Staunton, James Bogart, J.O. Woods and Alex Fullerton. Mrs. Besant said:
Man has a threefold nature in common with all animal creations. On one side is the brute, with all its pleasures, its pains and its needs to satisfy. On the other is the divine nature—that nature which has a glimmer in all constitutions. It shone with great brilliancy in the beings of the Buddha and the Christ. It is our own truer self in our best moments. It raises us above all earthly beings. Between the divine and the brutal comes the human nature extending a hand to each. This human nature can merge itself into either the one or the other, or it can raise the brute through the divine medium into a state of human perfection—into the possible perfection of the man that is to be.
Mrs. Besant’s most startling theory, however, was her materialization of thought with the basis of hypnotism. Science would soon be able to make thoughts a thing tangible; to be seen with the eyes and felt with the fingers.
