Background

A description of the experience

Walt Whitman – Leaves of Grass

The clock indicates the moment …. But what does eternity indicate?
Eternity lies in bottomless reservoirs – its buckets are rising for ever and ever
They pour and they pour and they exhale away
We have thus far exhausted trillions of winters and summers
There are trillions ahead, and trillions ahead of them

The source of the experience

Whitman, Walt
