Here is Mrs Pearson with the spirit of her dead sister, who has been summoned from the other side by Miss Houghton. And below, Mr Frederick Wilby of Leicester, likewise with hs sister, 'who has grown to womanhood in the spirit realms, having departed from this life as a child'. And she is now indeed almost as tall as he is. But wouldn't this imply that people also grow old too and even die in the spirit realm? Which would result in an infinite regression. Unless they stop at a perfect age.
