"I aked a thief

I asked a thief to steal me a peach,
He turned up his eyes;
I ask'd a lithe lady to lie her down
Holy & meek she cries.

As soon as I went
An angel came.
He wink'd at the thief
And smiled at the dame-

And without one word said
Had a peach from the tree
And still as a maid
Enjoy'd the lady (William Blake)

I thought a book might be right up your alley, I just read a book called: Seeing Red by Nicholas Humphrey a fascinating study of consciousness. It may be a little bit of unconventional writing, but the analysis of the senses and perception is very interesting.
