Bertrand Russell

“William James describes a man who got the experience from laughing-gas whenever he was under its influence, he knew the secret of the universe, but when he came to, he had forgotten it. Atlast, with immense effort, he wrote down the secret before the vision had faded. Whencompletely recovered, he rushed to see what he had written. Itwas 'Asmell of petroleum prevailsthroughout'.”
