“From worlds not quickened by the sun
A portion of the gift is won;
An intermingling of Heaven’s pomp is spread
On ground which British shepherds tread.”
Frederic William Henry Myers was a poet, classicist, philologist, and a founder of the Society for Psychical Research. Myers’ work on psychical research and his ideas about a “subliminal self” were influential in his time, but have not been accepted by the scientific community.
