Idée d'jour

A mystical experience is not any more unique than a modern experiment in physics. On the other hand, it is not less sophisticated, either .... The complexity and efficiency of the physicist's technical apparatus is matched, if not surpassed, by that of the mystic's consciousness .... A page from a journal of modern experimental physics will be as mysterious to the uninitiated as a Tibetan mandala. Both are records of inquiries into the nature of the universe.
