It seems desirable that I should briefly state my entire ignorance of natural science, and that what I do know has been gained without technical knowledge, with the determination that imagination should not interfere with strict investigation.

1872.—"It gives me great pleasure to write to you on this subject. Music deals more with the imaginative faculty than any other art or science, and possessing, as it does, the power of affecting life, and making great multitudes feel as one, may have more than ordinary sympathy with the laws you work upon. You say 'from E, root of B, the fountain key-note F, root of C, rises.' There is a singular analogy here in the relativities of sounds, as traced by comparing the numbers made together by vibrations of strings with the length of strings themselves, the one is the inverse or the counterchange of the other. The length of B and E are the counterchange of F and C, hence they are twin sounds in harmony." [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Extracts from Dr. Gauntlett's Letters1, page 48]
"The plastic power of the soul, produced by active consciousness, desire, and will." [Franz Hartmann, The Life of Philippus Theophrastus, Bombast of Hohenheim, Known by the name of Paracelsus and The Substance of His Teachings; George Redway, London, 1887]
"(Q) What causes the body to cry so easily - in church, at ceremonies, joy, gratitude, beauty, any slight emotional provocation? Can anything be done to control this?
(A) Over sensitivity of the individual as related to those of the imaginative forces within the body itself – these, while they may appear to be over effeminate, and to be overactive – these, rather than being suppressed should be rather made proud of, that the abilities are to give expression of that felt." [Cayce 428-1]

"What this method of 'meditating' will achieve for you will be a relief from the thoughts and stress that your ego pressures are creating for you. In the world of imagination, the ego may - or may not - be dormant." [Christ Letters - Letter 8, page 24]
