Many things that we are doing by laborious repetition, wearying ourselves and using up valuable material, might be made to “do themselves” if we only knew how to utilize tendencies and forces that are all about us, unsuspected. First, this objection does not at all affect the question in dispute. ‘My father,’ said Calas, ‘can you yourself bring yourself to believe that I am guilty?’ To persons in such unfortunate circumstances, that humble philosophy which confines its views to this life, can afford, perhaps, but little consolation. The range of our perceptions is at once enlarged and refined.

He holds his head forwards and obliquely upwards in a calculating position; moving his hands in different directions, and working with his fingers like unto one gathering something in the air.—At times he extends and stretches his hands higher than his head, moving and working them in the same manner: he will hold his face directly upwards—open and shut his mouth in a gaping and catching style, as if he were feeding on air; repeating these operations, and intermingling them with a strange gurgling noise in his throat—almost always muttering to himself as if he held busy converse with his own thoughts, with visible appearances of pleasure or anger on his countenance, occasioned by his imaginary operations being successful or otherwise. Do not the English remonstrate against this defect too, and endeavour to cure it? The coarser the joke, we are informed, the better it is liked by the natives of the Gold Coast.[177] The jests of the natives of the islands in the Pacific are said to be “low and immoral to a disgusting degree”.[178] Possibly the European is not permitted to know the worst of this aspect of savage mirth.

Animals that are made use of as food should either be so small as to be imperceptible, or else we should dig into the quarry of life, hew away the masses, and not leave the form standing to reproach us with our gluttony and cruelty.
