A description of the experience
Plotinus - the Enneads
In this intelligible world, all the essences see each other and interpenetrate each other in the most intimate depth of their nature. Every being contains within itself the entire intelligible world, and also beholds it entire in any particular being. All things are located everywhere.
Everything there is all, and all is each thing; infinite splendour radiates around.
The beautiful is completely beautiful there, because it does not dwell in that which is not beautiful. Each one of the celestial things, instead of resting on an alien foundation, has its own especial seat - its origin and its principle, in its own being and does not differ from the region within which it dwells, because it is Intelligence that is its substrate and itself is intelligible.
