A description of the experience
Boethius – The Consolation of Philosophy
But who still seeks to learn things that
He knows? And if the mind knows not, what does
It then in blindness seek? For who could search
In ignorance for anything, or who
Could look for that which was unknown to him.
And where could he discover it? When found
Could ignorance discern the hidden form?
When once the mind beheld the mind of God
Did it both sum and separate truths perceive?
Now hidden in the body's density
It does not lose all memory of itself.
The many separate truths are lost, yet still
It holds the sum
