You can access the online version on the Internet Archive:

Table of Contents - From Transylvania to Tunbridge Wells

Now this is apparently incomplete, and might have been revised quite a bit for the print publication, but
it does read like he is trying to convey his 'visions' or 'symbolic' understandings and not succeeding very well. The problem with 'visions' of course is interpreting them. Taking symbolic things literally and literal things symbolically can really mess up the message. The first thing I notice about the text is that he can't seem to write more than one paragraph of exposition without veering off into tirades against stupid 'literalistic' thinking New Agers for the next paragraph. His being so highly annoyed at stupid mis-interpreters and mis-appropriators makes me wonder if he isn't suffering a bit of projection due to his own inability to fully process and understand his 'visions'. If he fully understood these issues himself he should be able to explain in clear exposition without having to screech at the addled 'New Agers' with every other breath. The content between the tirades isn't all that original or penetrating anyway.
