Sample text

That is the great lesson: not to discuss the results. Those of you who possess a copy of 'The Equinox of the Gods' may have been very much surprised at the extraordinary injunction in the Comment: the 38 prohibition of all discussion of the Book. I myself did not fully understand that injunction; I do so now. 11. Let us now deal with a few of the phenomena which occur during the practices of Pratyahara.

Henri Poincare, one of the greatest mathematicians of the last generation, thought that the idea of space was invented by a lunatic, in a fantastic (and evidently senseless and aimless) endeavour to explain to himself his experience of his muscular movements. Long before that, Kant had told us that space was subjective, a necessary condition of thinking; and while every one must agree with this, it is obvious that it does not tell us much about it. 7. Now let us look into our minds and see what idea, if any, we can form about space.
