3 First Quotations from Charles Fort

superscientific adj. 1919 C. Fort Book of Damned xx. 248 [...] I think of super-things that have passed close to this earth with no more interest in this earth than have passengers upon a steamship in the bottom of the sea—or passengers may have a keen interest, but circumstances of schedules and commercial requirements forbid investigation of the bottom of the sea. Then, on the other hand, we may have data of super-scientific attempts to investigate phenomena of this earth from above—perhaps by beings from so far away that they had never even heard that something, somewhere, asserts a legal right to this earth.
teleport v. 1 1931 C. H. Fort Lo! i. ix. 105 Strange animals have appeared and they may have been teleported to this earth from other parts of an existence.
teleportation n. 1931 C. Fort Lo! i. iv. 42 Sometimes, in what I call ‘teleportations’, there seems to be ‘agency’ and sometimes not.
