Or my own acceptance

Or my own acceptance that we do not really think at all; that we correlate around super-magnets that I call Dominants–a Spiritual Dominant in one age, and responsively to it up spring monasteries, and the stake and the cross are its symbols: a Materialist Dominant, and up spring laboratories, and microscopes and telescopes and crucibles are its ikons–that we’re nothing but iron filings relatively to a succession of magnets that displace preceding magnets.
