Infraconscious clairvoyance is commonly qualified and known by the name of nightmares. The dream’s inebriation is in the hypnotic crepuscular state.
The dream’s inebriation has a longer duration than the hypnotic crepuscular state. The cerebral cortex intervenes notably in the dream’s inebriation, not as a cause but as vehicle of the oneiric (dream) Consciousness. The reflecting acts of the oneiric Consciousness are the distinct varieties of somnambulism.
An intense action of the mesencephalon exists in the hypnotic crepuscular state. This intense action is not the cause but the effect of certain short circuits from psycho-infraconscious currents. These originate psychic effects and automatic acts that are sometimes criminal.
Subsequent lacunar amnesia with distinct degrees and tinges exists within the dream’s inebriation.
The sensation of amnesia caused by the definitively automatic action does not exist within the hypnotic crepuscular state. The common factor of both phenomena of psychic origin is the inhibition of the normal Consciousness by the natural process of the dream.
Now, we mention an infraconscious clairvoyance case cited by Swartzer:
“A woman from Pesth dreamed that a dog chased her and she was trying to reject it by stoning it. She, awakened by that nightmare, took her little girl who was sleeping by her side and threw her with violence, as if she was a stone, against the wall in order to scare the vicious dog.”
Let us see another case of infraconscious clairvoyance cited by Kraft-Ebing:
“In the middle of the night, a guardian heard from a house a scream of someone saying, “Help my children!” He entered the house and found a mother in her nightgown in an extremely excited and perturbed state. The whole room was in major disorder. Two children were crouched in a corner of the room. The woman was constantly screaming, “Where is my little boy? Did you take him? I think I threw him out through the window…”
The unhappy woman had thrown her son outside onto the streets through the glass without opening the window. She had dreamed that her children were screaming at her and flames surrounded the house. Therefore, during her awakening mental confusion, she had cast her little boy through the window in order to protect him from the fire.” (Bucknill, Tuke, and Lerb, 1862. Page 213).
We have found another case of infraconscious clairvoyance on page 203 in a book written by the doctors Diaz Padron and E. C. Henriquez:
“Very late one night, a man who was alone in his apartment was dreaming that bandits were assaulting his home. Very strong knocks were heard from the door that was next to the stairs. The tenant awoke and rose holding a gun in his hand. He opened the door and shot the gun without seeing or aiming at anyone.
“The bullet shot a young boy who carried an urgent telegram. When the homicidal one saw the deliverer of the telegram falling, he then became aware that he had just wounded an innocent person. In that moment, he completely awoke.”
Those nightmares and evil dreams are phenomena of infraconscious clairvoyance that can originate false conclusions, resulting in crime.
When the clairvoyant is an neurasthenic occultist or esotericist, he can then become a premeditator and perfidious assassin.
An occultist student of a neurasthenic type was dreaming of a citizen. He was seeing with his infraconscious clairvoyance that such a citizen was tormenting him with witchcraft and black magic. A few days later, the neurasthenic insulted and threatened to death the perplexed and astonished citizen. This type of infraconscious vision with premeditation, calumny and perfidy is very common in some occultist and spiritualist students, etc.
The lack of mental appreciation of the infraconsciousness by esotericist or spiritualist clairvoyants is due to fanaticism and ignorance.
The mental disorder of ignorant fanatics is due to superstitious fear, to suggestion, and also to the lower aggressive instincts of their psycho-typic “I.”
As the infraconsciousness exists within the human being, likewise it exists within Nature. The tenebrous memories of the whole history of the Earth and of its root races are deposited within the infraconsciousness of Nature. The antediluvian monsters live within the infraconsciousness of Nature. These are the spectres of the past, the nightmare phantoms.
The infraconscious clairvoyant only perceives the cavernous memories of the past and the tenebrous creations from the infraconscious lower depths of the human beings and beasts.
Fatality only exists within the infraconsciousness of nature.
Every human being has a double, an opposite, who lives within the infraconsciousness of Nature. In front of Buddha, we find his brother and enemy Devadatta, the King of hell. In front of Anael, the Angel of Love, we find Lilith, the antithesis of love.
An infraconscious clairvoyant may see the double of someone and thereafter deduce erroneous conclusions whose final outcome is calumny, homicide, etc., etc.
The infraconsciousness is the tenebrous remnant from a remote past. The sadomasochist is the sexual pervert that can assassinate his spouse just for pure sexual pleasure. This sexual perversion is infraconscious. The infraconscious values of the psychological “I” constitute the lowest animal depths of the human being.
The tyrannical, obsessive, sexual perversion of the sado-masochist is the concrete manifestation of his infraconscious values.
When this genre of infraconscious values flourishes in his mind, the human being falls into crimes like homosexuality, stupor, force, violence, corruption of minors, etc. Sometimes, such a sexual pervert becomes a mystic, an ignoramus, a sanctimonious one, etc.
We knew the case of a mystical sexual pervert who used to give away coins to six and seven year old girls “for their candies.” This is how he was cultivating them while they were aging a little. Afterwards, he was sexually seducing them, and finally in order to avoid conflicts and problems, he engaged them with other men. Nonetheless, such a satyr was a mystic spiritualist who filled with sweetness was always smiling. He was a hierarch from a Spiritualist Society.
Many times, the sexual perversion of the infraconsciousness places its satyrs in the arena of compulsive psychoneurosis that causes them to commit the most terrible crimes registered by the police news chronicles.
Sexual infraconscious perversion has two very well defined poles: the brain and sexuality. Thieves are positive; prostitutes are negative. These are the two poles of the human infraconsciousness. Observe the intimate psychic affinity that exists between prostitutes and thieves.
These two poles of the human infraconsciousness live in an eternal struggle within each individual. We see clearly in the example of the spiritualist satyr cited in this present chapter the struggle of the infraconsciousness.
The satyr’s brain cultivates the girls with coins for their candies and waits a little while for their aging. Then, the satyr’s sexuality possesses and consummates the crime of seduction. The satyr’s brain projects and plans; afterwards, he engages the girls with other men in order to avoid conflicts. Behold here the struggle between brain and sexuality.
Many times the infraconsciousness betrays a virtuous spouse and carries her towards Adultery. Many prostitutes who in their past were magnificent spouses live in brothels. When the sexual perversion of these harlots polarizes itself in their brain, drained by pleasure, then they commit terrible crimes that take them to jail.
These incarcerated, unhappy women feel themselves victims of human injustice; they consider themselves innocent. Indeed, those women are victims of an energy that they ignore. No one has cured such unhappy ones, not a single psychiatrist has taught them how to use and drive their sexual energy. They do not know the great mysteries of sex.
They are victims of a society that, after perverting them, despises and miserably humiliates them.
Society corrupts these unhappy women, daughters of pain, in order to confine them within horrible panoptics and in jails where they only end up perverting themselves still more.
The infraconsciousness cannot be confined within jails.
The delinquent does not reform himself in jails. The jail system has become a complete failure. Inside jails, the delinquents multiply their hatred and rancor against society.
The sexual problems in jails, the homosexuality and all kinds of filthy vices against nature, are showing us until satiation that the infraconsciousness cannot be confined within jails.
The biggest sin is ignorance.
Only with a wise pedagogic psychotherapy can the reform of delinquents be achieved. The corrective pedagogic treatment within jails can transform them into true reformatory schools. Jails should not exist. Only reformatory schools, etc. should exist. In these schools, the delinquents can be cured with pedagogic psychotherapy.
Convicts must be treated with infinite love and mercy.
