"I believe that spirits are invisible; but is it impossible that, between two lovers so closely united, there should be an immediate communication, independent of the body and the senses? may not their mutual impressions be transmitted through the brain?"
— Rousseau, Jean-Jacques (1712-1778); Kenrick, William (1729/30-1779)
(II, p. 177)
