Therefore, I must explain that there are two important forms of life which are related to fairies and are a part of that kingdom of nature. In fact, fairies are part of a great evolutionary line that THE ~AL WORLD OF fAIRIES parallels the human. " The fairies stand more or less in the same relation to angels as animals stand to humans. Almost all fairies are concerned with the processes of nature, as I shall describe later, and many of the angels are also. Angels are not the theme of this book and are discussed only as they are connected with fairies, but I would like to say in general that conventional ideas about them are on the whole pretty far from the fact.
I have personally known ten or twenty with this capacity and have studied the fairies together with them at various DIALOGUES WITH LITTLE. PEOPLE. times. I am here referring only to people who see them whenever they desire. On occasion, I have also been with persons who have seen fairies for the first time. And at times I have gone to observe and describe fairies to persons at their request, when circumstances made it useful. For instance, I made a fairy hunt in Central Park in New York just to satisfy the demands of a metropolitan paper.
The matter of which an angel's body is made is very much finer than that of fairy bodies, and it is not visible at all to the physical eye. Angels require a pure form of clairvoyance for observation, so fine is the material of which their bodies are made. Thus, while angels are almost never seen with the physical eye, fairies can be seen in that way, especially out of the corner of the eye. A number of people can see fairies on the THE. S fringe of vision. The theory is that the cen tral part of the retina is used so much for ordinary sight that it does not respond to the more delicate vibrations o f light from fairies, whereas the rest of the retina is fresh and more suitable for such uses.
