James' (1902: 305-306) statement that "our normal consciousness, rational consciousness as we call it, is but one special type of consciousness, whilst all about it, parted from it by the filmiest of screens, there lie potential forms of consciousness entirely different" gives an indication of the scope and nature of the kind of experiences being studied here.
