In ~The Secret of the Golden Flower~ (Wilhelm & Jung, I think) there is
a diagram of a mini-buddha "hovering" around the sahasrarsa chakra, and
from this one another seven (?) connect. [I no longer have a copy, but
remember trying to look down my nose at myself].  I have experienced the
single "hovering" state, but not the others.  This is a level of
awareness [short!] which is truly astounding, but which has no "vision"
in the usual sense, ie, no images to the mind.  Yet I was aware of
everone else in the room (about 50 of us) extremely vividly.  I guess
this was the "I" of "I am I" in an earlier post.
