A description of the experience

 10                {Kappa-epsilon-Phi-Alpha-Lambda-Eta Iota}


    The Abyss of Hallucinations has Law and Reason;
      but in Truth there is no bond between the Toys of
      the Gods.
    This Reason and Law is the Bond of the Great Lie.
    Truth! Truth! Truth! crieth the Lord of the Abyss
      of Hallucinations.
    There is no silence in that Abyss: for all that men
      call Silence is Its Speech.
    This Abyss is also called "Hell", and "The Many".
      Its name is "Consciousness", and "The Universe",
      among men.
    But THAT which neither is silent, nor speaks, re-
      joices therein.
