Are we really all that civilised in our modern times?
Who among us has freed himself from the shackles of his basest instincts? Who can truly say that he has risen above the plight of primitive man? Who has entered the halls of the gods? Is there anyone now who does not cower beneath the weight of the celestial beings who jerk us too and fro in the same way that a child performs the puppet?
Is it true, what the seer spoke? Are there no shepherds here? Are there no Saints?
Does anyone know Reason? Or are they like the rest, who cry “reason” but know it not?
