When we see God
When we see God we see him not by reason, but by something that is higher than reason. It is impossible, however, to say about him who sees that he sees, because he does not behold and discern two different things. He changes completely, ceases to be himself, preserves nothing of his I. Immersed in God, he constitutes one whole with him; like the centre of a circle, which coincides with the centre of another circle. Plotinus, 'Letters to Flaccus'
