“…the still point of the turning world…” *
What lucid and luscious imagery this collection of small words evokes!
The “still point” is what I refer to as the unknowable dimension called ‘n’ by mathematicians, scientists and the [odd] mystic!
wild wideawakeness – to the n (nth)
is the still point of the turning world
And “the turning world…”? The world of appearances put together by mental technologies: perception, languaging; the world of me and mine, others and theirs; the world of time and space, in which it can all tickety-tock along.
After the kingfisher’s wing
Has answered light to light, and is silent, the light is still
At the still point of the turning world.
~ The Four Quartets, Quartet 1 ‘Burnt Norton’ by T. S. Elliot
