The cosmic adventure of maximum magnitude in Poe's model is that the light in the present preserves (also as vibration in the ether) the present (history as a whole) in an eternal state, travelling as vibration through the galaxies for thousands and millions and billions of years, and eternally progressing through the spiritual ether, thereby the universe carrying in itself "ruins" of worlds that once really existed--phantoms of light and energy carrying the energetic/ vibrational imprints of the past, irisations of real events infinitely diffused through space and time.
