Background

A description of the experience

"If you introduce new, intelligent ideas to fools, you will be thought frivolous, not intelligent. On the other hand, if you do get a reputation for surpassing those who are supposed to be intellectually sophisticated, you will seem to be a thorn in the city's flesh. This is what has happened to me."— Medea, lines 298-302

The source of the experience

Dionysos [and the Dionysian Mysteries]
