The so-called stream of consciousness is simply that – one small stream of thoughts, images, and impressions – that is part of a much deeper river of consciousness that represents your own far greater existence and reality. You spend all your time examining this one small stream, so that you become hypnotized by its flow, and entranced by its motion. Simultaneously these other streams of perception and consciousness go by without your notice, yet they are very much a part of you, and they represent quite valid aspects, events, actions, emotions with which you are also involved in other layers of reality.
Now often you tune into these other streams of consciousness without realizing that you have done so – for again, they are a part of the same river of identity. All are therefore connected.
Any creative work involves you in a cooperative process in which you learn to dip into these other streams of consciousness and come up with a perception that has far more dimensions than one arising from one narrow, usual stream of consciousness that you know. Great creativity is then multidimensional for this reason. Its origin is not from one reality, but from many, and it is tinged with the multiplicity of that origin.
Great creativity always seems greater than its pure physical dimension and reality. By contrast with the so-called usual, it appears almost as an intrusion. It takes the breath away. Such creativity automatically reminds each man of his own multidimensional reality. The words “know thyself,” therefore, mean far more than most people ever suppose.” —Seth from The Seth Material: The Eternal Validity of the Soul, channeled through the medium of Jane Roberts.

Okay, so I think you were right. “When my face is chamois-creased,
If you think I wink, I did.
Laugh politely at repeats.
Yeah, kiss me when my lips are thin.” Any other contenders?
