Wherever my idea turned, there the ant

There are two interesting anecdotes regarding “movement of ants on the wall” in the Record of Yoga by Sri Aurobindo [23.1.1913 & 7.9.1913 vide Mother India, Oct’02]. Later on he writes in The Life Divine, “If we look…not at mass of quantity but force of quality, we shall say that the ant is greater than the solar system it inhabits.” [TNM]
