Some Ans. Questions 1908 by -'Abdu'l-Bahá- 1 Para

In wakefulness the eye of man sees at the utmost as far as one hour of distance' because through the instrumentality of the body the power of the spirit is thus determined; but with the inner sight and the mental eye it sees America, and it can perceive that which is there, and discover the conditions of things and organize affairs. If, then, the spirit were the same as the body, it would be necessary that the power of the inner sight should also be in the same proportion. Therefore, it is evident that this spirit is different from the body, and that the bird is different from the cage, and that the power and penetration of the spirit is stronger without the intermediary of the body.

This is one of the logical evidences for the immortality of the soul (228:2)
