This ROOT-WORD is MEDI which comes from medare: TO HALVE & to MAKE HALVES. If a knife is to cut a loaf into halves, the knife must get into the middle, and so we get the idea of MIDDLE, BETWEEN & HALFWAY. In considering No. 20 there is a question why so important a person as one who has this remarkable faculty should be called a medium. In this case the medium means agency through which the supernatural is attracted.
