Now the three experiences which I mentioned before (and I could have added some more) seem to those who have experienced them for instance to me to have in some sense an intrinsic an absolute value. But when I say they are experiences surely they are facts, they have taken place then & there, lasted a certain definite time & consequently are describable. And so, from what I said some minutes ago I must admit it is nonsense to say that they have absolute value. And here I have arrived at the main point of this paper & it is the paradox that an experience

|a fact
should have an absolute value. And I will make the point still more acute by saying, that an experience|a fact should have a supernatural value.
