“I am more convinced that there is a plane of consciousness that we are all sharing, and that the brain is a limiting machine that pulls it in. It is possible to sink back, lose this definition, and participate in that plane of consciousness. How else do you explain extrasensory perception? And since time is a form of sensibility—meaning, that which is going to happen has already happened in a certain sense—you cannot say the premonitions are coincidences. They are not. They happen too often to be attributed to chance.
I’ve had such experiences on enough occasions to attest to that: meeting somebody, having a kind of “‘click,” and knowing that you are going to do something important together that will be a major feature in your lives. I mean, when you meet people who are going to be of deep significance in your life, knowing it’s going to happen is somehow right there in the first meeting. It’s a mysterious business.”
Joseph Campbell, in Diane K. Osbon’s “Reflections on the Art of Living: A Joseph Campbell Companion”
