The facts of science are real enough, 
and so are the techniques that scientists use, 
and so are the technologies based on them. 
But the belief system 
that governs conventional scientific thinking 
is an act of faith.

that quality of air that emanation from old trees, 
that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.

To unfold the secret laws and relations 
of those high faculties of thought 
by which all beyond the merely perceptive knowledge
 of the world and of ourselves 
is attained or matured, 
is an object which does not stand in need of commendation 
to a rational mind.

To be nobody but yourself 
in a world which is doing its best, 
night and day, 
to make you everybody else 
means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; 
and never stop fighting.

As the ego cogito
subjectivity is the consciousness 
that represents something,

and so gathers with itself.
