From Plato to Duchamp, writers have acknowledged the link between mediumship and creativity. According to F. W. H Myers, mediumship consists of procedures that lower the threshold to the subliminal mind, and thus to the creative process.

To illustrate the fertility of Myers’ ideas, its little known influence on Surrealism will be discussed.
