Dear Reader,
 

My apologies for waiting so long to visit with you again. However, now that you have been introduced to the invisible spirit realm, I can start sharing details with you more directly.

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr. John Alderson. Like Paul and John, I am a seer. I was born in Lowestoft, England in 1758 and am the son of a minister, Rev. J. Alderson. My original trade was as a physician, tending to the sick in the region of Hull, and later in London.

I am sure that you are curious about my age. Indeed, this “seer gift” (called Chronographism – you may look it up in the Handbook), caused me much confusion and turmoil when I discovered my body stopped aging at some point in my early thirties. When my lack of aging was noticed by others, I commissioned a portrait of myself to use as an objective aging reference. Of course, this was before the advent of photography. Every year when I compared myself to the portrait, I saw no change.

My Portrait in 1799. I appear the same today.

Now, returning to your lesson and on the subject of portraits, I had a soul-portrait made of myself as well. Now that you understand this concept of the soul and how we seers see the soul, I believe this would be a good time to show you.

This portrait was made with an early spirit camera, so its quality is not very good. (Of course this was taken on a different world, as this technology is only just now being developed in your time and dimension.)
 
Although you have met a character in the story that is from another dimension (see Cyclopes in the Handbook glossary), I don’t believe you have been introduced to this concept or to dimensional doorways, portals or other such things (except maybe through your science fiction literature). This is a bit of a complex topic and I will teach you more on this later. For now, it should be sufficient for you to look up these terms in the Handbook if you are curious.

This “video” was a creative collaboration a group of my artist friends made with me. It’s quite clever, really. My friend Antonis (a great seer artist) took my original hand-etched portrait and combined it with a turn-table spiritography recording. It was quite difficult to do. I had to pose in the same position as my portrait and stand on a wobbling, rotating platform, all the while enduring the screams of the primitive spiritography motion camera as it filmed me.


You will learn more about the soul as the story continues. We will resume your lesson after the next chapter.
 

 

– j.a.
