"All visible objects, man, are but as pasteboard masks. But in each event – in the living act, the undoubted deed – there, some unknown but still reasoning thing puts forth the mouldings of its features from behind the unreasoning mask. If man will strike, strike through the mask! How can the prisoner reach outside except by thrusting through the wall?"

"Man has no Body distinct from his Soul; for that
called Body is a portion of Soul discerned by the five
Senses, the chief inlets of Soul in this age."

"We certainly are not identical with the external things, but we belong together with them to one and the same world. The stream of the universal cosmic process passes through that segment of the world which, to my perception, is myself as subject. … The forces which are active within my body are the same as those which exist outside. I am, therefore, really identical with the objects; not however, I in so far as I am subject of perception, but I in so far as I am a part within the universal cosmic process."

Voyeur - Julienne Mei Tan
