We are thus brought to the conclusion that man is not this sorry insect, this bug feebly crawling upon the face Of the real and tangible earth, but in our essential nature we are the real, we the enduring; we project and contain it. In the immeasurable abyss Of the soul rises and sets the sun; within, the stars take their course; within us is the dawn Of the worlds, the twilight Of the gods. Within are the seasons: there sit night and day; from thence ﬂow the hours. It is we who give birth to the Graces and the Muses. In the soul, beauty has its origin. Its source is spirit ual and that is to say ethical its purpose ethical. Whatever beauty we appear to see without we are to refer to the soul; its perception, soul-perception, its perception spiritual, purposeful, educational with ref erence to the consciousness. We may infer the central purpose to be the education Of the world-conscious ness to perceive all-beauty, all-truth, all-love.
