“How then can men describe the universe, except by their inscribing of themselves upon the fields of space? To describe the universe as it is they must become the universe, and then they will describe themselves; and to describe themselves they will be able to discover no better way than that in which the universe gives utterance to itself. It speaks perpetually the Language of the Gods, the Universal Tongue, for it is God for ever giving utterance unto Himself.”
G.R.S. Mead, Gnosis of the Mind

“For body's sleep became the soul's awakening, and closing of the eyes − true vision”
G.R.S. Mead, The Corpus Hermeticum

“But man is made thus; he pursues when he ceases to be pursued.”
G.R.S. Mead, Simon Magus
