SUMMARY Collision With the Infinite A Life Beyond the Personal Self REVIEW Collision With the Infinite A Life Beyond the Personal Self 109 Suzanne Segal ✓ 9 REVIEW Denly happened to Suzanne Segal This is the incredible story of a young woman who irrevocably lost all sense of personal self or an II. Waiting at a Paris bus stop four months pregnant Suzanne Segal was about to take a step that would change her life forever It occurred as she boarded the number 37 lineI lifted my right foot to step up into the bus and collided head on with an invisible force that entered my awareness like a silently exploding stick of dynamite blowing the door of my usual consciousness open and off its hinges All the body s signals seemed to take a long time to be picked up in this non localized place as if they were light coming from a distant star Terrified I looked around All the other passengers were calmly taking their seats I shook my head a few times hoping to rattle my consciousness back into place but nothing changed I felt from afar as my fingers fumbled to insert the ticket into the slot and I walked down the aisle to find a seat I sat down next to an older woman I had been chatting with at the bus stop and I tried to continue our conversation My mind had completely ground to a halt in the shock of the abrupt collision with whatever had dislodged my previous realityHer personal identity disappeared and she began to live in terror Of her body she said it was an outline empty of everything of which it had previously felt so full She also said Everything seemed to be dissolving right in front of my eyes constantly Emptiness was everywhere seeping through the pores of every face I gazed upon flowing through the crevices of seemingly solid objects The body mind speech thoughts and emotions are all empty they had no ownership no person behind them I was utterly bereft of all my previous notions of realityAlthough others acknowledged a change in her she was puzzled that nobody else noticed what she saw so clearly as if there were an unseen doer who acted perfectlyLater in her narrative The first response that the mind had to this completely ungraspable experience was absolute terror but that terror never changed the experience for a moment In other words that terror never got the reference point back again There was no personal self but nothing stopped the functions continued to function just as before In fact better than before Speaking was still speaking and walking was still walking I even went to graduate school and got a PhDI experienced this fear for ten years During this time I consulted a lot of psychotherapists because it seemed like something I needed to be cured of Every single one of these therapists considered this to be a problem And they all had a diagnosis for it They couldn t uite understand how it could be that there was such great functioning occurring but they took the fact that there was a lot of fear to be a sign that this was a problem This on sex Sexuality still functions but without the lust or longing that are self referencing aspects Sex serves no personal desire and has no deeper meaning that makes it anything but what it is at the moment Like all other functions the sexual function is engaged when the vastness deems obvious for a mysterious non personal purpose When lovemaking occurs there is no one making love to no one How could this possibly be comprehensible to the mindSegal eventually stopped asking therapists for help and turned to spiritual teachers Towards the end of the ten years there was a clear awareness that this was not something that was going to go away It was time to start investigating other possible descriptions of what this was It was time to investigate it with people who maybe knew about it than Western psychotherapists I started reading spiritual books American Buddhist teachers assured her that her absence of self was not pathological which helped her understand it in a different light whereupon her fear subsided I realized that the mind had been clinging tenaciously to the erroneous notion that the presence of fear meant something about the validity of the experience of no self Fear had tricked the mind into taking its presence to mean something it did not Fear was present yes but that was all it was The presence of fear in no way invalidated the experience that no personal self existed It meant only that fear was present Everything occurs simultaneously form and emptiness pain and enlightenment fear and awakening Fear s grip broke and joy arose at onceAfter this understanding a further shift occurred I was driving north to meet some friends when I suddenly became aware that I was driving through myself For years there had been no self at all yet here on this road everything was myself and I was driving through me to arrive where I already was In essence I was going nowhere because I was everywhere already The infinite emptiness I knew myself to be was now apparent as the infinite substance of everything I sawShe had referred to her bus stop experience as a bus hit In summer 1996 a series of powerful hits occurred which at first were pleasant rapturous then increasingly disturbed her causing her to rest after especially strong onesIn early 1997 X rays revealed a brain tumor She had surgery and died on 1 April 1997 age 42 Her book is titled Collision with the InfinitePost script The skeptic might argue that her disease provides evidence for the materialist position that she merely hallucinatedAs a response to the materialist consider this in William James classic The Varieties of Religious Experience Medical materialism finishes up Saint Paul by calling his vision on the road to Damascus a discharging lesion of the occipital cortex he being an epileptic It snuffs out Saint Teresa as an hysteric Saint Francis of Assisi as an hereditary degenerate And medical materialism then thinks that the spiritual authority of all such personages is successfully undermined According to the general postulate of psychology just referred to scientific theories are organically conditioned just as much as religious emotions are and if we only knew the facts intimately enough we should doubtless see the liver determining the dicta of the sturdy atheist as decisively as it does those of the Methodist under conviction anxious about his soul To plead the organic causation of a religious state of mind then in refutation of its claim to possess superior spiritual value is uite illogical and arbitrary unless one has already worked out in advance some psycho physical theory connecting spiritual values in general with determinate sorts of physiological change Otherwise none of our thoughts and feelings not even our scientific doctrines not even our DIS beliefs could retain any value as revelations of the truth for every one of them without exception flows from the state of its possessor s body at the time
