Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

The idea of time being a perception based concept and that when we leave perceptions we are in the realm of the 'Creator' and thus out of time.  Note that the translation here uses the terminology familiar to a Christian audience, but it may have been that Boethius used terms which have no Christian equivalent to describe the spirit realm out of time

 

A description of the experience

Boethius

Since the Creator hath always an eternal and present state, His knowledge, surpassing time’s notions, remaineth in the simplicity of His presence and comprehending the infinite and what is past and to come, considereth all things as though they were in the act of being accomplished

The source of the experience

Boethius
