It pulses and glows distantly. It eludes me, slides further away. There is an aurora just over the horizon, behind the peaks. I am in an open space, a plane expands on all sides. I stand on a plateau and the earth rises up before my eyes. Hardened lava or the metamorphosed oceanic floor thrusts upwards. Zenithal. Now I see: all matter is vibrating, always, but on a scale that wasn’t perceivable before. Lights resonate on the brink of my vision. Sound grows and I can no longer locate my body in space. My limbs expand, coalesce, mell with the air in a regular pulse. I radiate. If nature is an infinite sphere, then its center is everywhere, coinciding with me. Direction is irrelevant. I vacillate, I ascend a perpetually spiralling helix. I pace the strands and strains of existence. When I stand still the helix continues to unfurl beneath me. I evolve upwards. Particles click in and out of being. In here there’s no need for eyes.
What used to be my body is now only movement itself, a flow of sounds in fleeting waves. I amplify, refine, diffuse. In this space, nothing can be named. Individual forms no longer exist. All matter expands and contracts together. Breathes in and out. This is crystalline immersion. This is the realisation that a true void exists nowhere, not in nature nor in the mind.
