Meditation is essential for the abstract thinker because a brooding intelligence is not enough, because it alone operates with the experienceable facts of consciousness, whereas metaphysics operates either with erroneous speculations about those factors or with correct but shadowy images of them. In the latter case, it successfully brings these images into vividly felt actuality.
