“Every Age has its own peculiar faith.... Any attempt to translate into facts the mission of one Age with the machinery of another, can only end in an indefinite series of abortive efforts.

Out of kitchen table or chair
As if a celestial burning took
Possession of the most obtuse objects now and then”
