It is All Transcendental

"The syntactical nature of reality,
the real secret of magic,
is that the world is made of words.
And if you know the words
that the world is made of,
you can make of it
whatever you wish.
There is a transcendental
dimension beyond language...
It's just hard as hell to talk about!
Reality is, you know,
the tip of an iceberg of irrationality
that we've managed to drag
ourselves up onto for a
few panting moments before
we slip back into the
sea of the unreal.
It is the imagination that
argues for the Divine Spark
within human beings.
It is literally a decent of
the World's Soul into all of us.
We live in condensations of our imagination.
The main thing to understand is
that we are imprisoned in
some kind of work of art.
There is no mundane dimension really,
if you have the eyes to see it,
it is all transcendental."

Terence McKenna (1946 - 2000)
