—  Harold W. Percival, книга Thinking and Destiny

Контексте: A thought has no size in the physical sense but is vast as compared to the physical acts and objects into which it is later precipitated.

While stepping up to the northeast corner curbstone, Light, greater than that of myriads of suns opened in the center of my head. In that instant or point, eternities were apprehended. There was no time. Distance and dimensions were not in evidence.
