Deriving wisdom from expanded non-material realities, continues from the Oracles of Delphi, to Hildegard of Bingen, to Edgar Cayce, Jane Roberts and the Seth-material, to Frank DeMarco and his conversations with Rita. According to Jane Roberts, Seth described himself as an "energy personality essence no longer focused in physical matter," and said that he was independent from Roberts' subconscious. Channeling Seth, Roberts at times appeared stern, jovial or professorial. "His" voice was deeper and more masculine sounding than Roberts' and had a distinct, although not identifiable, accent. Unlike the psychic Edgar Cayce, whose syntax when speaking in trance was antiquated and convoluted, Roberts' syntax and sentence structures were modern and clear when speaking as Seth. The Seth Material was transcribed into books that continued to develop over time, but later texts never contradicted the material introduced in earlier works. Some "practice elements" were even given, so that the readers could see how some of the concepts could be practically experienced. A painting of Seth and Jane Roberts Seth's effect upon New Age thinkers has been profound. The title jacket of The Nature of Personal Reality: A Seth Book, published in -74, and re-published in -94, contains testimonials from some of the most notable thinkers and writers within the movement. Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Shakti Gawain, Dan Millman, Louise Hay, Richard Bach, and others express the effect the Seth Material had upon their own awakening. In words similar to Williamson's they state: "Seth was one of my first metaphysical teachers. He remains a constant source of knowledge and inspiration in my life." Catherine L. Albanese, professor of religious history at the University of Chicago, stated that in the 1970s the Seth Material "launched an era of nationwide awareness" of the channeling trend. She believes it contributed to the "self-identity of an emergent New Age movement." The late amateur physicist Michael Talbot wrote, "To my great surprise—and slight annoyance—I found that Seth eloquently and lucidly articulated a view of reality that I had arrived at only after great effort and an extensive study of both paranormal phenomena and quantum physics." Seth’s wisdom channeled through Jan Robert’s was some of the most life enhancing perspective broadening information in the 20th century and the strength of the shared wisdom of expanded reality is still valid today. Edgar Cayce (1877 –1945), “The Sleeping Prophet” gave what he called readings for decades while in a trance state. His sessions were transcribed and remain on file at the Association for Research and Enlightenment, a nonprofit organization he founded to preserve the material he brought forth. It was an amazing wealth of information, on many different subjects: healing, reincarnation, astrology, past and future events, particularly including Atlantis. Cayce was the most documented psychic of the 2
