“Cosmic Fetus”

“I not only sensed no pain; I sensed no body whatsoever. It was like those dreams we’ve all had where you’re floating in the sky, weightless, truly bodiless, but still perfectly aware. I could hear the wind and small rustlings in the nearby bushes, but these sounds didn’t seem to come through my ears. They formed part of the immense wholeness that I had become. Likewise, the stars above me, and there were millions of them, were not something that I was looking at, as an observer, but an intimate part of that vast shell of wholeness that I had merged into. In the middle of them rose this vortex of dense, bright light, and within this vortex stretched a gigantic fetus.” At this point, several of the friends chuckled. But Emmetrios paid no attention, so wrapped up was he in his story. “A perfectly lifelike fetus of immense proportions. Its head was turned to the side and its arms extended forward. Its legs hung straight down. Whatever that magical state in which I found myself was, it accepted the Cosmic Fetus as perfectly natural. Everything I perceived constituted a part of myself. It wasn’t a matter of me looking at or listening to things outside myself. No, they were all present within me; they all formed a ‘me’ that was infinite in extent and timeless in duration.”
