Liber LXV, Cap II, v. 20-22
20. A little crazy boy that rode with me spake unto the swan, and said:
21. Who art thou that dost float and fly and dive and soar in the inane? Behold, these many æons have passed; whence camest thou? Whither wilt thou go?
22. And laughing I chid him, saying: No whence! No whither!
"Write, & find ecstasy in writing! Work, & be our bed in working! Thrill with the joy of life & death! Ah! thy death shall be lovely: whoso seeth it shall be glad. Thy death shall be the seal of the promise of our age long love. Come! lift up thine heart & rejoice! We are one; we are none."

The mind wants an Aim, a destination for motion, a reason, a result. It needs definitions and names. Adept's consciousness is not centered in the intellect (the faculty of reason), but rests on the relationship with the Angel, i.e. is centered in Tifereth; she addresses these questions of the intellect cheerfully, with wisdom and benevolence, as one would address a little child.
