A description of the experience

The Witnesses – Thomas Hennell

Of nights, the cell grew smaller, and I dwindled with it as we descended in a spiral curve; then my body was no bigger than a glow worm.  And then we were on the point of entering nether worlds, hollow globes filled with electric light, guarded by small uniformed men, who were half mechanical.  Here sat figures, each in the sphere of his own worship, whose limits imprisoned him; and I feared to recognise them
