“The erotic state – again, a mixture of concentration and spontaneity – is a hypnoidal state, probably the most powerful kind that we are capable of experiencing, and it is in this condition that unexpected regions of the self are revealed, as the majority of people know from experience.” ― Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense
“It is as though we are understanding now what (William) Blake intuited, the senses were, in Eden, spread over the whole being. It might seem, then, that our bodies still live in Eden, but our minds refuse to know it.” ― Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense
“Our approach to reality, our sense of reality, cannot assume that the text of nature, the book of life, is a cryptogram concealing just a single meaning. Rather, it is an expanding riddle of a multiplicity of resonating images.” ― Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense
“The entrance to the natural EM senses is now guarded by artificially monstrous EM waves carrying every kind of pattern irrelevant to nature, from TV sitcoms to defense radar broadcasts. It is as though we have covered the whole surface of the globe with a slum of slovenly, impalpable constructions during the past eighty years or so since Marconi. They are literally skyscrapers in as much as they touch the ionosphere and are reflected from it. They are tenements full of the disorderly displays of sitcoms and the sterile reflections of military radar.” ― Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense
“In fact, unconscious scanning goes on all the time. It seems more than ever that what we know as the visionary or poetic mode is our response via the unconscious senses to what is really there in the environment. We are not trying to ‘explain it away’: it is rather that we symbolize this kind of awareness.” ― Peter Redgrove, The Black Goddess and the Unseen Real: Our Uncommon Senses and Their Common Sense
