A description of the experience

The Hasheesh Eater – Fitz Hugh Ludlow

‘I feel’ said he ‘that we have many mutual ties of fellowship, but, more than that, I see them. I know you are feeling kindly to me now, for there are a thousand golden and azure cords which run between us, making a network so exquisite that it is unspeakable delight to look thereon’

‘Are you not fancying it?’ said somebody.

‘Fancying it? How can I fancy that which is immediately before my eyes? Besides that, I realise that it is true; it cannot be false; it is a part of each of us delicately prolonged. I see all our characteristics blended in it – oh, it is beautiful – beautiful!’
