Dante’s PARADISE, Canto 1: powerless memory






Experience God

Memory is powerless

You can’t remember


NOTE: Dante the Poet has traveled throughout the Inferno, Purgatory, and Paradise, but his memory of the experience of God is vague. In Paradise, the angels and saved souls experience God continually. This is true of people who have had mystical experiences. During the mystical experience, everything is clear. Afterward, little is remembered.
