This poem rocks! In fact it is Rocktacular! So rocktacular that we named
our band Finite Infinity! Nice choice of words Emily. High-Five!

I cringed when I read that only one comment on this great poem had been
posted. I have clearly experienced "that polar privacy" through practice of
Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation program. Dickinson most certainly had
it too, since she expresses it in astonishingly apt expressions. Maharishi
describes it very clearly, (but in prose, not poetry)in his Vedic Science.
He describes it as "self-referral" consciousness, in which infinity
collapses to a point. Unbounded consciousness knows itself by collapsing
its infinity to a point of itself. Yes, this is hard to conceptualize, but
it is easy to experience when one has learned the technique for doing so!

Visiing the the sea, or gazing into space one can expericence solitude.
Perhaps, like Emerson, she experiences herself while in communion with
The solitude in communion with nature is like being in company compared to
the solitude of consciousness perceiving itself only.
Great yogies and meditators talk about Brahman, or pureblissful
consciousness. Eternity, consciousness, and bliss.
Unbeknown to Emerson and Dickinson, and aluded to by Socrates, is a realm
of pure consciousness, filled with transcendental variety, all at oneness
