Still the cosmos expanded, till the galaxies that were most remote from one another were flying apart so swiftly that the creeping light of the cosmos could no longer bridge the gulf between them.

But I, with imaginative vision, retained sight of them all. It was as though some other, some hypercosmical and instantaneous light, issuing from nowhere in the cosmical space, illuminated all things inwardly.

Once more, but in a new and cold and penetrating light, I watched all the lives of stars and worlds, and of the galactic communities, and of myself, up to the moment wherein now I stood, confronted by the infinity that men call God, and conceive according to their human cravings.

I, too, now sought to capture the infinite spirit, the Star Maker, in animage spun by my own finite though cosmical nature. For now it seemed tome, it seemed, that I suddenly outgrew the three-dimensional visionproper to all creatures, and that I saw with physical sight the StarMaker.
I saw, though nowhere in cosmical space, the blazing source ofthe hypercosmical light, as though it were an overwhelmingly brilliant point, a star, a sun more powerful than all suns together.

It seemed tome that this effulgent star was the center of a four-dimensional spherewhose curved surface was the three-dimensional cosmos. This star ofstars, this star that was indeed the Star Maker, was perceived by me,its cosmical creature, for one moment before its splendor seared myvision. And in that moment I knew that I had indeed seen the very sourceof all cosmical light and life and mind; and of how much else besides Ihad as yet no knowledge.
