And if in addition to this we found ourselves without the contribution of physical sensation to which we have always been used sightless, soundless, touchless one can easily imagine a shock in the face of which even the most strongly centered personality would give way. And yet such changes as this probably only faintly indicate the adjustments which the discarnate are called upon to meet.
