FOREWORD

Certain it should be that, beyond and about this World of Length, andBreadth, and Thickness, there is another World, or State of Existence,consisting of these and another dimension of which only those beings whoare privileged to enter or dwell in it can have any conception. Now, ifthis postulate be granted, it follows that a dweller in this State wouldbe freed from those conditions of Time and Space which bind those beingswho are confined within the limits of Tri-Dimensional Space, orExistence. For example, he would be able to make himself visible orinvisible to us at will by entering into or withdrawing himself fromthis State, and returning into that of Four Dimensions, whither our eyescould not follow him--even though he might be close to us in our senseof nearness. Moreover, he could be in two or more places at once, andcause two bodies to occupy the same space--which to us isinconceivable. Stranger still, he might be both alive and dead at thesame time--since Past, Present, and Future would be all one to him; theworld without beginning or end ...--From the ”GeometricalPossibilities,” of Abd'el Kasir, of Cordoba, circa. 1050 A.D.
