Book review

Excerpt from Evolution and Involution

1. Here is a pebble on the shore of the ocean. Let us like it up as a representative of inorganic matter. It is an existence by itself in the universe. What does it know of the universe? It knows nothing, so far as we know. What does it know of (concerning or about) itself? We know that it does not know anything of itself. According to the understanding and knowing of men, it is an existence by itself in the universe, and it knows nothing either of itself or of the universe. And the reason why it knows nothing of the universe is because it knows nothing of itself

2. There is a flower by the wayside. It is a higher existence in the universe than the pebble. According to the classification of naturalists, it belongs to a different kingdom of existence. It belongs to the vegetable kingdom; and the pebble belongs to the inorganised kingdom of nature. It has besides a sort of animation or life, called vegetable life. What does it know of the universe? Nothing. What does it know of itself?
