    Negation of all things


    Can anybody explain to me the bold text?

    "Then I sank down, out of things, into a rich red gloom that grew blacker and blacker. Meseems that much time passed; but who can measure the time of consciousness that is but the negation of all things? Yet was I content in annihilation, and - as it seemed - at rest."

    Aleister Crowley, The Drug, 1909

    Re: Negation of all things

    A state of consciousness in which nothing outside of oneself seems to exist. Such as might be attained through deep meditation or by the use of certain drugs.
