Excerpt from The Bridge Between Two Worlds Marie Corelli's fascinating book, "The Romance of Two Worlds," has familiarized the public with the notion that by Two Worlds are meant this sub-lunar earth plane, where we mortals now dwell, and the spheres beyond, where the so-called dead live, and think, and act. In order that one who hears the title of the present book may at once divine its scope, we have called it "The Bridge Between Two Worlds." But, strictly speaking, this Bridge serves to connect, not two worlds, but rather, the lowest stratum with the strata beyond, of the one terrestrial sphere, the lowest stratum being inhabited by spirits who are still encumbered by a fleshly body, and the strata beyond by spirits who have passed out of the fleshly body, and who retain the spirit body, so well adapted to their more ethereal dwelling-place. The whole terrestrial sphere, in its more etherealized portions extending far beyond the physical moon, is a unit; the inhabitants of all parts of it are related to each other more closely than they can be related to those who dwell in the spheres of the neighboring planets; and there are means by which those who still dwell on the surface of the planet can communicate with those who have passed beyond their plane, and receive aid from them in regard to their own spiritual development.
