Background

A description of the experience

Robert Frost – from The Poetry of Robert Frost

They spoke of the sun
And moon and stars,
Saturn and Mars
And Jupiter.
Still more unfettered,
They left the named
And spoke of the lettered
The sigmas and taus
Of constellations
They filled their throats
With the furthest bodies
To which man sends his
Speculation,
Beyond which God is;
The cosmic motes
Of yawning lenses.
Their solemn peals
Were not their own;
They spoke for the clock
With whose vast wheels
Theirs interlock

The source of the experience
