Bucke, Cosmic Consciousness

Bucke explicates cosmic consciousness under four main characteristics. First, cosmic consciousness is constituted by an intense, sudden experience of immersion in a flame or rose-colored cloud and a perception of an inner light. Thirdly, it is constituted by an intellectual enlightenment or illumination, the essential content of which concerns the understanding that the cosmos is a living spiritual presence, not dead matter. Finally, cosmic consciousness is accompanied by a sense of immortality and eternal life and a loss of fear of death and sin. Cosmic consciousness is tradition-less religion for all — without church, creed, scripture and ritual. Since cosmic consciousness is simply a new psychological faculty and the next step in human evolution, its appearance and continuation requires no religious tradition.

Richard Maurice Bucke

A year earlier, the Canadian psychiatrist and adventurer Maurice Bucke March 18, —February 19, published a stunning personal account and psychological study of a dazzling form of consciousness that lies just on the other side of that filmiest of screens, accessible to all. He learned to read when he was still a small child and soon began devouring novels and poetry. In his twentieth year, he heard of the first major discovery of silver ore in America and joined a mining party, of which he was the only survivor, and barely: On his way to California, while crossing the mountains of the Sierra Nevada, he suffered frostbite so severe that one foot and a few toes on the remaining foot had to be amputated. When he finally made it to the Pacific Coast, Bucke used a moderate inheritance from his mother to give himself a proper college education. After graduating, he taught himself French so that he could read Auguste Comte and German so that he could read Goethe. It was in the early spring, at the beginning of his thirty-sixth year.
