I saw Steiner talk some years ago on science and poetry. The lecture, without notes, lasted an hour and a half and ended with him quoting Wordsworth’s tribute to Newton, “voyaging on strange seas of thought, alone”.

I came out of the hall half-drunk with the ideas he’d thrown around and his unapologetic linking of so many worlds.
