Background

A description of the experience

Il Penseroso – John Milton

Or let my lamp at midnight hour
Be seen in some high lonely tower,
Where I may oft out watch the Bear
With thrice great Hermes, or unsphere
The spirit of Plato, to unfold
What worlds or what vast regions hold
The immortal mind, that hath forsook
Her mansion in this fleshly nook;
And of those demons that are found
In fire, air, flood, or underground,
Whose power hath a true consent
With planet, or with element.
