Mesmeric Revelation

One of my favorite stories by Edgar Allan Poe. On my journey, when things started to "click" for me, I read this for the first time. Since then, nothing I've read made more sense to me as an explanation of the bigger picture. Was Poe way ahead of his time? The ambiguity of whether or not this was an actual experience or something he knew as truth is something he purposely kept up until his death. His death btw also scared me as I feel sometimes we are targeted for knowing more and trying to enlighten others. Just a recurring shower thought.
