For many of us the Biblical bush still burns, and there is a deep mystery in the heart of a simple seed. If I seem for a time to be telling a story of how man came under the domain of law, how he reluctantly gave up his dream and found his own footsteps wandering backward untill on some far hillside they were transmuted into the footprints of a beast, it is only that we may assess more clearly that strange world into which we have been born -- we, compounded of dust, and the light of a star.
