Background

A description of the experience

C S Lewis – The Discarded Image

The spatial order is the opposite of the spiritual, and the material cosmos mirrors, hence reverses the reality, so that what is truly the rim seems to us the hub.........

A few astonishing lines from the Paradiso stamp this on the mind forever.  There Dante sees God as a point of light.  Seven concentric rings of light revolve about that point, and that which is smallest and nearest to it has the swiftest movement.  This is the Intelligence of the Primum Mobile, superior to the rest in love and knowledge.  The universe is thus, when our minds are sufficiently freed from the senses, turned inside out
