Obituary, Leon Paul Wood:

Age Calculation

Do not change this link. Referenced in 1974-Fall-Public-Meeting-Kent-State-Q-and-A. Here Rose mentions that an enlightenment experience is traumatic but that Paul Wood had no physical after-effects.

Paul Wood’s experience occurred probably in his mid to late 30s. According to his obituary, Wood was born December 16, 1917 and was discharged from the service June 13, 1945, i.e., at age 27. Martin met Wood about 1959 when Wood would have been 41-42 (Martin estimated 44). Martin wrote that Wood’s cosmic consciousness experience had been “several years previous.” Rose met Wood in 1963.

Interestingly, Martin wrote that Wood’s concentration on the Lord’s Prayer was “a couple weeks”. Peace to the Wanderer, p. 91-93.
