    Do both "actual" here mean "real/tangible..." or not?


    Something more definite was attained by Mesmer, who did most of his work in Vienna in the latter part of the eighteenth century. However mistaken in some of his inferences, he was the prime mover in bringing the dissociation of soul and body before the actual senses of mankind, and a native of Strasbourg, M. de Puysegur carried his work one step farther and opened up the wonders of clairvoyance.

    The actual announcement of spirit communication was received with mingled interest and scepticism, and it....

    Jacob,

    We recommend posting a question on one forum only initially. If you do not get a satisfactory answer from that forum and you feel that you have exhausted its possibilities, then of course trying a different forum might help. It is only courteous however, to tell the second forum that you have already asked the question on another forum and then give a precis of the answers you received there, or provide a link to it, along with an explanation of why you are now looking elsewhere.

    It's no surprise, but these threads confirm that Conan Doyle's writing lost much of its craftsmanship and care when he veered into occult spiritualism. You can see his critical faculties fade before your eyes.

    Loosely, yes.

    Hello. Thanks for your message. I tried this forum because sometimes i do not get answer from other forums. I am a foreigner and understanding some texts is difficult for me, so my only solution is to ask native ones about that particular context.

    That has nothing to do with failing to give correct information in your profile.

    I find it hard to believe that you are in Brazil.

    That's irrelevant. We know why people ask us questions. I was talking solely about your member profile.

    Your IP address certainly doesn't place you in Brazil. There is no reason to tell us untruths.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hello again. I edited my profile. I am really sorry. I thought that if I tell you that I am in Europe or somewhere else than Asia, I would receive a better treatment.

    Thank you.

    You receive the best treatment when we're confident you're telling us the truth about yourself.
