Bioethics & what it means to be human

We are all endlessly looking for reality even when we try not to, or think we are not.

This applies particularly , of course, to poets, artists, mystics - even, in their own way,

to philosophers and scientists.

Though we pursue fantasy, never more so than today,

the soul's only true sustenance is reality,

which even in the most adverse circumstance it somehow finds,

just as a seed falling on a rock face somehow finds the tiny crack where it can grow.


   ~ Malcolm Muggeridge, The Third Testament
