"Everyday human consciousness may be compared to a passenger on a ship. The passenger can see only as far as the horizon. But what lies beyond the horizon is greater and mightier by far than everything in front of it. Our ego-consciousness recognizes only the reality accessible to reason and the senses. What lies beyond this capacity for knowledge, however, is far greater and powerful."
