“Someday, after mastering ether[1], winds, the waves, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness[2] the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”
Pierre Teilhard (1934), “The Evolution of Chastity”, Peking, Feb; in: Toward The Future (pgs. 86-87) [3]
