"In a publication unfortunately not available to me"

   Formed in 1882 the Society for Psychical Research was founded to provide rigorous, occasionally skeptical investigation into supposedly paranormal phenomena.  At one time it counted amongst its members Carl Jung, whose well-known and turbulent association with Freud would begin in 1906.  The society was co-founded and actively promoted by Frederic Myers, whose work on what he termed the ‘subliminal consciousness’ anticipated Freud’s ideas concerning the unconscious in many ways. 

The analysis of ‘hypermnestic’ dreams Freud refers to was published by Myers in Volume VIII of the society’s Proceedings, a periodical collection of its research complete archives of which are available to current members.


Frederic Myers’ analysis of hypermnestic dreams can also be found in his aptly posthumous collection ‘Human Personality and its Survival of Bodily Death’ (1903)
