"Once, this Earth was haunted by the flaming angels of elusive gods and by magic that seemed to move the heavenly spheres. These mythic tales seem but superstitious fantasy, despite their depth of colour, to the rational and sane of an enlightened society. And yet this universe appears to the inquisitive mind still so enigmatic, so full of the very mystery that breathed life and beauty into our earliest imagination that man's greatest tragedy would be to dull his senses and not still, despite the limits of his Earthly mind, seek to grasp the nature of that which brought him forth."
