In the deepest trance state we enter by introversion into the pure Void. There are then no forms to witness, no visions to behold, no emotions to thrill, no duality of knower and known. The experiencer of the world and the world itself vanish because the first as ego is idea and the second is also idea; both merge into their Source, the Mind.
