The scene in which the yokels light flaming torches to enact an annual ritual suggests both that they have seen The Wicker Man and that they should be watched closely in future episodes. Director Alice Troughton stylishly combines images obligatory to the form — flickering candle and gas light, wind-whipped wheat, faint faces behind glass or underwater — with others that surprise through their mystery or beauty.
The strategy seems to be to offer enough frocks and maids for fans of period fiction with sufficient shocks for enthusiasts of the supernatural: James adaptations dominate spooky television to such an extent that one of his tales, The Tractate Middoth which, like The Living and the Dead, prominently involves a clergyman , is both one of the earliest TV ghost stories — filmed for American TV in , starring Leslie Nielsen — and one of the most recent: Gatiss is an evangelist for the work of James and also for the screenwriter Nigel Kneale, whose clever and terrifying BBC play The Stone Tape , in which scientists working in a Victorian building are surprised by what their instruments pick up, was a latter-day homage to James.
Almost all the James adaptations have been shown at Christmas or Halloween, and these seasonal associations of the genre — The Living and the Dead might have been even better in winter than it is in summer — is one reason that haunted stories have been relatively infrequent on TV.
The other is that, as you can only have so much ectoplasm close to the watershed, their content tends to limit them to late-night transmission. A statement from Verity was enclosed: He came towards me and stroked my hair. The appearance in my room was most vivid and quite unmistakable.

Again, Verity testified that she had voluntarily given Beard the information without any prompting on his part. Beard concluded his experiments after this episode for Verity's nerves "had been much shaken, and she had been obliged to send for a doctor in the morning. Muldoon was one of those who claim that astral projection can be learned, developed, and mastered by the serious-minded.

In his two books, The Projection of the Astral Body and The Case for Astral Projection , Muldoon offers a detailed record of many experiments he personally conducted, and provides a systematic method of inducing the conditions necessary for astral projection. According to Muldoon, it is possible to leave the body at will and retain full consciousness in the "astral self.

This cord, said Muldoon, is extremely elastic and permits a journey of considerable distance. Muldoon claimed to have been able to move objects while in his astral self and to have gained information that he could not have acquired via any of the normal sensory channels. In his book Far Journeys , Robert Monroe provides details of his Gateway Program, which claims to be able to teach any serious subject the ability to travel out of the body and to escape the known dimensions of the physical universe.
Monroe has spent many years researching various techniques in moving the soul or mind out of the physical body and has established an institute where students can experience his methods and techniques. The area of "living ghosts" that has received the greatest amount of study in the twenty-first century is that of the near-death-experience NDE.

In December , the prestigious British medical publication The Lancet released the results of an extensive study conducted by Dr. Pim van Lommel and his colleagues at Hospital Rijnstate in Arnhem, Netherlands, which indicates that a number of subjects experienced visions or lucid thoughts while they were clinically dead. Myers — has written that cases of astral projection present perhaps not the most useful, "but the most extraordinary achievement of the human will.
What can lie further outside any known capacity than the power to cause a semblance of oneself to appear at a distance? What can be more a central action—more manifestly the outcome of whatsoever is deepest and most unitary in man's whole being? Of all vital phenomena, I say, this is the most significant; this self-projection is the one definite act which it seems as though a man might perform equally well before and after bodily death.
