Background

A description of the experience

Alfred Lord Tennyson – from In Memoriam A.H.H.

I trust I have not wasted breath
I think we are not wholly brain,
Magnetic mockeries, not in vain
Like Paul with beasts, I fought with Death

Not only cunning casts in clay
Let Science prove we are, and then
What matters Science unto men
At least to me?  I would not stay

Let him, the wiser man who springs
Hereafter, up from childhood shape
His action like the greater ape
But I was born to other things

The source of the experience

Tennyson, Alfred Lord
