"That's just the point," I replied, "they're very good for oth-
        ers!" Then, then ... suddenly (I was in bed, of course, with
        a first-rate fever), suddenly I felt seized by trance – the real
        trance, the kind that pushes you out of your body – and I
        knew. I knew: "It's the end; if I can't resist it, it's the end." So
        I looked. I looked and I saw it was a being whose head had
        been half blown off by a bomb and who didn't know he was
        dead, so he was hooking on to anybody he could to suck
        life. And each of those beings (I saw one over me, doing his
        "business"!) was one of the countless dead. Each had a sort
        of atmosphere – a very widespread atmosphere – of human
        decomposition, utterly pestilential, and that's what gave the
        illness. If it was merely that, you recovered, but if it was one
        of those beings with half a head or half a body, a being who
        had been killed so brutally that he didn't know he was dead
        and was trying to get hold of a body in order to continue his
        life (the atmosphere made thousands of people catch the
        illness every day, it was swarming, an infection), well, with
        such beings, you died. Within three days it was over – even
        before, within a day, sometimes. So once I saw and knew,
        I collected all the occult energy, all the occult power, and
        ... (Mother bangs down her fist, as if to force her way into
        her body) I found myself back in my bed, awake, and it was
        over. Not only was it over, but I stayed very quiet and began
        to work in the atmosphere.... From that moment on, mon
        petit, there were no new cases! It was so extraordinary that
        it appeared in the Japanese papers. They didn't know how
        it happened, but from that day on, from that night on, not a
        single fresh case. And people recovered little by little.
