William G. Benham says: “After continuous study and observation of the lines in the hand and after carefully tabulating the results of the innumerable experiments with them, it has been shown that:
a) Lines are found in certain places always indicating the same thing.
b) Certain formations of these lines invariably show good, bad, or weak operation of the things indicated by them,
c) Lines show details of various facets of life.
d) When events have strongly impressed themselves upon the brain of a subject
i) Lines have appeared in certain parts of the hand
ii) Lines have disappeared in certain parts of the hand
iii) Lines have been broken
iv) Lines have changed in various ways, thereby producing either good or bad results.
Lines in the hand are the direct reflexes of the subject’s mind, and his mind produces, controls and alters them.
a) Lines change in unison with changes in the mental attitude of a subject.
b) Lines respond to changes in health and constitution when certain events have produced a powerful impression in the subject’s mind.”
The link of the Double Consciousness with the Lines of the Hand. Medical Science and psychologists have demonstrated that the human
being is possessed by a double consciousness or mind:
a) One part operating on a material existence, making us conscious of the
things we handle or see.
b) The other part operates on the plane of our spiritual existence, and gives us Spiritual consciousness of things we can neither see, touch nor fully explain.
