A new approach to the understanding of neurotic disease. A book by psychiatrist Arthur Guirdham. Obsessional states are direct protective reflex following the perception of evil. This is first revealed in night terrors and involuntary tics of childhood. The victims of obsessional states are often markedly psychic. Many are clairvoyant and telepathic. Their obsessional tendencies are related to the repression of these gifts. A number have far memory back to, and preceding birth.
