Summary At the dawn of the radio age in the 1920s, a settler-mystic living on northwest coast of British Columbia invented radio mind: Frederick Du Vernet - Anglican archbishop and self-declared scientist - announced a psychic channel by which minds could telepathically communicate across distance. Retelling Du Vernet's imaginative experiment, Pamela Klassen shows us how agents of colonialism built metaphysical traditions on land they claimed to have conquered
