Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Sir Charles Sherrington – Man and his Nature
Mind, the anything perception can compass, goes therefore in our spatial world more ghostly than a ghost. Invisible, intangible, it is a thing not even of outline; it is not a ‘thing’ it remains without sensual confirmation and remains forever.
Physical science … faces us with the impasse that mind per se cannot play the piano – mind per se cannot move a finger of a hand. Then the impasse meets us. The blank of the ‘how’ of mind’s leverage on matter. The inconsequence staggers us. Is it a misunderstanding?
