<< By the continuity of our culture we signify
that we are human. And all continuities are broken. We have lost our
immortality. We could grow three heads and thirty feet, and our skins
become blue scales, and so long as Homer and Michelangelo and Sophocles
live, mankind lives. And they are gone. If we were globes of green fire,
or red crusts on a rock, or shining bundles of wire, and still we
remembered who we had been, we would still be men."
-- _Son of Man_ (1971)
