"...He devoted himself to the study of philosophy, and for a time adopted a scepticism, from which he was turned by the study of the "Platonic writers." He was fascinated especially by Neoplatonism, and this fascination never left him. The Theologia Germanica also exerted a permanent influence over him.

Spissitude is a term coined by Henry More, who used it to describe a fourth spatial dimension in which he believed the spiritual realm extended. The term refers to a measurement of an object's length along a direction in the fourth spatial dimension, analogous to the three-dimensional terms length, breadth, and height. Just as the cardinal directions in three dimensions are referred to by the terms up/down, north/south, and east/west, direction in spissitude is described by the terms ana/kata, coined by Charles Howard Hinton..."
