. . . these two words together arouse a thought of having struck a point in the next culture . . . the idea of the future culture being already fixed is itself dubious . . . the making of ologies is a questionable activity . . . not founded in reality nor in imagination . . . i infer that all such thinking is invalid . . . at least to me . . .

taking wide curved steps away from nervous narrowness and fear . . .
