The problem is the universal one of how private inner experience is to be illustrated or verbally described. Is it not inherently and unavoidably incommunicable? If our illustration succeeds in making some kind of visual analogy with an upward and outward progress, it surely fails to illustrate the inward aspect of the experience. Indeed, one would think an inward “movement,” as opposed to an outward one, utterly impossible to illustrate by any kind of diagram. Yet, strangely, if we explore this insoluble problem by such mental means as we have, it leads us to a far greater elucidation than we expect.

The Cosmic Person Fig. 2. this Celtic image of the tree of Life elegantly suggests the wholeness and self-sustaining interconnectedness of the upper and lower worlds; in keeping with the Celtic character, it does not claim a place of importance for the human in either the terrestrial or the celestial world. Its form resembles that of a “strange loop,” an enigmatic entity to be discussed in chapter 15.
