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
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.
