Meditation on Meditation in a Toolshed

I picked up my old copy of CS Lewis’s God in the Dock and reread “Meditation in a Toolshed.”  He explains the difference between looking at something and looking alongside it.  One sentence caught my eye,

You can step outside one experience only by stepping inside another (215).

It’s interesting that a classical apologist acknowledges there is no God’s-eye view of the world.  All of our knowing is already embodied in a network of experience.
