Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Quoted in Death and its Mystery - 1787 Immanuel Kant “Critique of Pure Reason”:
From the point of view of time and its regular order, if we could penetrate into the soul of a man so that it will reveal itself by acts internal as well as external, if we could understand all its motives, even the slightest, and at the same time all the external influences, we could calculate the future conduct of this man with all the certainty of an eclipse of the sun or of the moon.
