I read CS Lewis’ Space Trilogy in my early teenage years: Out of the Silent Planet, Voyage to Venus and That Hideous Strength. Lewis’ hero, Ransom, travelled through space in a coffin/vessel. Ever since my early childhood experience of the contiguity of inner darkness of the body and cosmic space – a fundamental experience brought about through enforced rest – I have felt that the body is a spaceship.
