William Blake

If you are not, you should become familiar with The Marriage of Heaven and Hell by William Blake. It is an important text that has been on my mind, after a discussion with my brother.

From "The Voice of the Devil":
But the following Contraries to these are True

1. Man has no Body distinct from his Soul for that call'd Body is a portion of Soul discern'd by the five Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age
2. Energy is the only life and is from the Body and Reason is the bound or outward circumference of Energy.
3 Energy is Eternal Delight (Blake, URL)
