In this, too, he recapitulates. He has his private ego--hence; his crooked laws, his blind religions, his invented. God to whom he pretends fealty so that he may not serve, but dote upon, himself. In this, too, he is a facsimile of all the millenniums of desperate, unsuccessful men, who all conquered each other and destroyed each other, for that they would not make a conquest of their own vanities. He has not yet deeply discovered that the function of reason is consciousness, and thus but accessorily the extension of the senses.

He is the animal capable of perceiving and of expressing by his acts all that the evolving planet means. He is a total work of art, containing every beast, exemplifying the dualistic instincts, appreciating the relationship of each, whose love is neither tangled in his fears nor separated from his dark knowledge, for he has perceived that creation and destruction are but two opposite events in the existence of energy and that awareness does not destroy death but makes it inevitable, and death does not abolish life but forever advances awareness.
