Supernormal Not Abnormal

The above important statement concerning the distinction between the

"abnormal" and "supernormal" is not made merely for the purpose of

academic differentiation and classification. On the other hand, it is

made because there is a most pernicious tendency on the part of the

ignorant and unthinking portions of the public to regard and to classify

certain high phases of occult and psychic manifestation of power as

"abnormal," hence BELOW the standard; whereas, properly speaking, such

manifestations of power are far ABOVE THE STANDARD, and, hence, clearly

entitled to the term "supernormal."
