Cosmic Consciousness, by Richard Maurice Bucke, , at sacred-texts.com
Born May 26, 1799; died January 29, 1837.
If Pushkin traced the following lines after his own personal experience he was almost certainly a case of Cosmic Consciousness. Be this as it may, their descriptive power makes them
worth quoting. The translation into English is by Dana, of the "New York Sun":
† Compare Isaiah's vision.
* The dazed condition which is so common following illumination.
† Intellectual illumination.
