The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; [[CuriosityIsACrapshoot but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality]], and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either {{go mad from the revelation}} or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.''
