    Glimpses do ye seem to see of that mortally intolerable truth; that all deep, earnest thinking is but the intrepid effort of the soul to keep the open independence of her sea; while the wildest winds of heaven and earth conspire to cast her on the treacherous, slavish shore?

    i assume both... saying to look for these things when it is impossible is silly; being able to do so and only noting that things are consistent would also be silly... i think those two factors ought also be tied to the scale of war... the advent of world war is a modern novelty enabled by our advances in science... i chose the word advent because we have had two so far, and the air feels ripe for another...
