What does the author mean by saying "struggling into thought"? Is he talking about "arising or "coming into existence"?
"Then, after a long interval, a ringing in the ears; then, after a lapse still longer, a pricking or tingling sensation in the extremities; then a seemingly eternal period of pleasurable quiescence, during which the awakening feelings are struggling into thought; then a brief re-sinking into non-entity; then a sudden recovery."
The author means that one is becoming conscious/aware of these feelings.
