A question frequently asked is: What was the source of this information that came through Edgar Cayce? As you read the text of a reading, the answer may not seem clear. When Cayce himself asked about this source in various readings, the following was given: His own higher self—or his superconscious mind—was the source of the information. So it was not a nonphysical being speaking through Edgar Cayce but his own superconscious mind that generally obtained the information from the individual getting the reading or from what he called the Akashic Records. These records can be briefly described as a history of every soul since the dawn of creation.
Cayce’s superconscious mind often relayed information in a manner quite different from our conversational style today. Sometimes the language and sentence structure are challenging to decipher. But with a few clues and guidelines, you’ll become more proficient in being able to understand exactly what was meant.
hird, develop an understanding of the language style of the readings, which was often biblical in both tone and content. In the waking state, Cayce was a devoted student of the Bible. It is natural that some of this material would find its way into his readings. More than anything else, this characteristic shows the reverence Cayce had for the process of giving a reading. He took each very seriously, and he felt that each was like a sacred trust given to him.
It’s fair to ask, If Cayce was so smart when he was in trance, why couldn’t he have found a way of speaking that would be easy to understand? Part of the reason for this communication difficulty is that his mind was operating at another level of consciousness—one in which words were often inadequate. He was trying to convey—in three-dimensional, logical terms—information that he could perceive with far greater depth and understanding.
Perhaps, too, the source of this information wanted us to work at getting to the meaning and value of what we are reading. If everything was immediately obvious and we could read the material superficially, we might never roll up our sleeves and get involved in trying to understand deeply what this information is all about. It’s worth the effort!

i don't think that the general thoughts of humanity, at that time, were geared toward such things.
they were as modern as they could be, surely, and the questions they asked might very well have been of the same nature as those that you mention are to us, today.

What I want to know is the methods. The form of hypnosis, how it was done, everything to the exact detail of what happened. Or at least as much as we can get and then I want to try it with someone also interested in this field.
