Functions of the Perispirit

Part 1 of 5: Intermediary Between Spirit and Matter

The semi-material, spiritual body unites the spirit and the material body, making reciprocal influences between the two possible and serving as an instrument for the transmission of sensations between them, thus allowing the spirit to act upon matter.

When the sensations come from the exterior, we can say that the body receives the impression, the perispirit transmits it, and the spirit, the invisible and intelligent being, registers it.

When a directive for actions initiates in the spirit, we can say that the spirit wants, the perispirit vibrates in transmission of the message, and the material body executes.
