There is effusion of the substance which ,
according to Spiritualism, is known as ectoplasm And then they are able to find their way

Thoughts, feelings and sensations operate in that region and it looks as if through their
direct action on these nerve centres, the spirit.,, are able to control the functions of
speech,sometimes even in a different language, and other functions of the body,
i.e.walking, strange looks, shouting and so forth.
