Edgar Cayce

Edgar Cayce (; March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American clairvoyant who claimed to channel a "Source" to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, dreams, the afterlife, past-life, nutrition, Atlantis, and future events while in a self-induced sleep state. Cayce proposed that his subconscious mind would explore the dream realm where all subconscious minds are timelessly connected. Cayce founded a nonprofit organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment, to store and facilitate the study of the Cayce material. Read more on Wikipedia
