Nowadays the world is becoming increasingly materialistic, and mankind is reaching toward the very zenith of external progress, driven by an insatiable desire for power and vast possessions. Yet by this vain striving for perfection in a world where everything is relative,they wander even further away from inward peace and happiness of the mind.
An extra-terrestrial philosopher, who had watched a single youth up to the age of twenty-one and had never come across any other human being, might conclude that it is the nature of human beings to grow continually taller and wiser in an indefinite progress towards perfection; and this generalization would be just as well founded as the generalization which evolutionists base upon the previous history of this planet.
Eroticism, hallucinogenic drugs, nuclear science, gaudi's gothic architecture, my love of gold - there is a common denominator in all of it: god is present in everything. The same magic is at the heart of all things, and all roads lead to the same revelation: we are children of god, and the entire universe tends towards the perfection of mankind.
