I’m beginning to modify that

I’m beginning to modify: that, at a distance from this earth, gravitation has more effect than we have supposed, though less effect than the dogmatists suppose and “prove.” I’m coming out stronger for the acceptance of a Neutral Zone–that this earth, like other magnets, has a neutral zone, in which is the Super-Sargasso Sea, and in which other worlds may be buoyed up, though projecting parts may be subject to this earth’s attraction.

I accept that when there are storms

I accept that, when there are storms, the damnedest of excluded, excommunicated things–things that are leprous to the faithful–are brought down–from the Super-Sargasso Sea–or from what for convenience we call the Super-Sargasso Sea–which by no means has been taken into full acceptance yet.
