In the late 1960s Mike Heron of the Incredible String Band wrote a song called 'Douglas Traherne Harding'. The song was about headlessness – Mike Heron had recently met Douglas and seen who he really was. (The song starts with the words, 'When I was born I had no head...') Mike had been reading Traherne around that time and saw the similarity between headlessness and Traherne's view. (Douglas had already found Traherne.) So Mike called the song after both Douglas and Traherne. The song includes some well-known lines from Traherne: 'You never enjoy the world aright, till the Sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with the heavens, and crowned with the stars..."
