A description of the experience

T C Lethbridge – The Power of the Pendulum

When looking back over the past sequences of my life, I have observed that whatever one undertook invariably had a relationship to something one was going to do, perhaps many years afterwards. Something in some archaeological investigation would explain what was found in a completely different bit of work decades later. I never did a piece of research work which did not in time fit in with another. For instance a puzzle resulting from an excavation in Cambridgeshire could be solved by something found in a dig in the Hebrides in twenty-five years' time. It needs some practice in observation to notice these points, but they are there if you look for them and must surely imply the existence of some kind of plan for each individual..............

To assume, as many do, that any trivial human mind can know the purpose and intention of a mind which can sprinkle the Universe with numberless stars, seems to me to be little more than gross presumption. To get any sense out of the idea, it seems necessary to assume the existence of a vast hierarchy of minds in descending order from the Great One at the top to the tiny human specimen beneath. But it might go much farther than this, with a spark of mind existing in every living organism.
