Could you not get anything from the Eliot texts to which CR is pointing? CR has very kindly highlighted texts in Eliot which relate to light and a poetic rendering of E's intuitions about light. There is a parallel, or perhaps better an analogy between those intuitions and what quantum physics is telling us about the connections between the macro and micro dimensions of the universe. If that is meaningless to you then I am sorry for the paucity of your understanding. I prefer to think that you are just posturing.
