Notes

In chapter one of his book This is It, Alan Watts comments on the association of insight with Connection Experience.[2]

William James notes "The simplest rudiment of mystical experience would seem to be that deepened sense of the significance of a maxim or formula which occasionally sweeps over one. "I've heard that said all my life," we exclaim, "but I never realized its full meaning until now."[3]
