Lightning is a common metaphor used to describe the dramatic illumination and enlightenment that is outcome of a powerful Connection Event.

For example, R. M. Bucke describes his single Connection Experience by suggesting it was a "momentary lightning-flash of... Brahmic Splendor." [1]

Later on he says "The instantaneousness of the illumination is one of its most striking features; it can be compared with nothing so well as with a dazzling flash of lightning in a dark night, bringing the landscape which had been hidden into clear view."[2]
