Bergson, Henri - Matter and Memory - Relearning from perceptions
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Henri Bergson – Matter and Memory
Such is, in truth, the ordinary course... we start from what we take to be experience; we attempt various possible arrangements of the fragments which apparently compose it, and when at last we feel bound to acknowledge the fragility of every edifice that we have built, we end up by giving up all effort to build.
But there is a last enterprise that might be undertaken. It would be to seek experience at its source, or rather above that decisive turn where, taking a bias in the direction of our utility, it becomes properly human experience....
The relativity of knowledge may not then, be definitive. By unmaking that which these needs have made, we may restore to intuition its original purity and so recover contact with the real.
