". . . he believed there were more things in heaven and earth than most people dreamed, and told Humphry, seriously, over a beer, that he had seen uncanny creatures, not only in woods near Cambridge, but passing between market stalls, or peering out of windows, in the Mile End Road.  Our world was interpenetrated, he said.  We had known it in the past.  We have lost the knowledge."
