Hellenbach, Baron Lazar De Baczolay (1827-1887) was a Hungarian occultist and philosopher whose numerous important works, including "Birth and Death" and "The Philosophy of Sound" closely concern psychical research. In "Birth and Death," which was translated into English in 1886, Hellenbach proposes the original idea that no change of world occurs at the moment of birth and death, except in the method of perception, and relates his experiences of his psychical investigations and encounters and practical studies of how to manifest psychic abilities and psychic phenomena through study and mediums.
