Mirror Of Enigmas

ART - MYTHOLOGY - PSYCHOLOGY - LITERATURE
"The sport of disembodied flight among the stars must surely be the most exhilarating of all athletic exercises. 
It was not without danger; but its danger, as we soon discovered, was psychological, not physical. 
In our bodiless state, collision with celestial objects mattered little. 
Sometimes, in the early stages of our adventure, we plunged by accident headlong into a star. 
Its interior would, of course, be inconceivably hot, but we experienced merely brilliance.”
