Paul Brunton, Notebooks, vol. 4, part 1, p. 40, #286:
When Socrates thought and talked, he walked about; but when the transcendental experience struck him, holding him enraptured and thought-free, he remained rigidly still, standing where it caught him. No probing questions then engaged him, no arguments with his friends then interested him.
The dialectic is dropped when the experience it subserves arrives.
