Elongation (Paranormal)

In a psychic context the word is used to denote the elongation of the body of the medium in response to spiritual control.

This is a very rare psychic phenomena. Iamblichus, the Neo-Platonist philosopher, writing on divination, said:

"The person of the subject has been known to dilate and tower to supernormal height."

The famous Scottish medium Daniel Dunglas Home, who was never exposed as a fraud, was reportedly seen to elongate almost as much as 25 centimeters (10 inches) during a seance.
