If there is any means of seeing a spirit, a form from the inner world, it is only the breath. For in the light of the breath a form from the inner world can manifest as a picture from the magic lantern. The picture is actually in the lantern and it is the reflection of that picture which we see. Those who see the form of the dead see the reflection before them, manifested in the light of their own breath the real forms being in the inner world. For it is the breath which connects the inner world with the outer world, just as the light thrown from the magic lantern falls upon the curtain.
