A description of the experience
Sir Thomas Browne, Religio Medici
"Now there are besides these characters in our faces certain mystical figures in our hands, which I dare not call mere dashes, strokes à la volée or at random, because delineated by a pencil that never works in vain, and hereof I take more particular notice because I carry that in mine own hand which I could never read nor discover in another."
