Robert Irwin knows that if you sit, silently, on the side of a mountain for an extended period of time, things become very quiet inside; so much so, that the relationship between what is inside the body and what is outside can become confused. The Buddha called this state of awareness, enlightenment.

into 30 years later
their lives emerge
