Excerpt from 'Collected Letters' (1912): Pursuing the reality of the N-Ray

"I was not alone in my skepticism of Blondlot's claims. The Academy neatly and rather precisely avoided mentioning his fantastic 'n-ray' in their award to him. Wood has been evangelical in his criticism. We maintained that our disbelief, desire for truth and ultimately our reasonable doubt is the rigorous backbone on which all scientific inquiry depends. It brings me no pleasure to follow that thought with this contradictory one: this outline of scientific rigor has not allowed for any understanding of the phenomena observed, documented and undeniably present in Port Igby.

By constantly measuring against what we know has come before, have we allowed ourselves enough room for acceptance of the impossible?

Regardless, on this matter it is impossible to know if the entities care. We reason and rationalise and explain and still they defy our understanding. They persist, defined only by their indefiniteness. It is a mistake for us to adopt scorn or condescension. We cannot afford to treat them as unrealities.

If they avoid categorisation, we must expand our categories. If they resist scrutiny, we must look harder."
