125. We might here touch on the singular phenomenon of the "agénères" or
ungenerated,* which, however extraordinary it may appear, is no more supernatural
than the other phenomena we have been considering. But having fully explained this
subject in the Revue Spirite of February 1859, we think it unnecessary to reproduce that
explanation here. We will merely add that it is a variety of the class of tangible
apparitions ; a peculiar state of certain spirits, enabling them to clothe themselves,
temporarily, with a form so exactly resembling a body of flesh as to appear to be such
to those about them.
* From the Greek privative a, and geinomai to engender; that which has not been engendered.
