"The Primeval State of Man was Wisdom, Art, and Science....
I rest not from my great task! To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes
Of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought: into Eternity. ...
I must Create a System, or be enslav'd by another Mans
I will not Reason & Compare: my business is to Create ..." (Jerusalem)
