A description of the experience
Iamblichus – Life of Pythagoras [translated by Thomas Taylor]
The Pythagoreans believed in, and assumed the things about which they dogmatised, because they were not the progeny of false opinion.
Hence Eurytus the Crotonian, the auditor of Philolaus, said that a shepherd feeding his sheep near the tomb of Philolaus, heard someone singing. But the person to whom this was related, did not at all disbelieve the narrator, but asked what kind of harmony it was.
