Discovering fire, again

"Someday, after we have mastered the winds,
the waves, the tides and gravity,
we shall harness for God
the energies of love.
Then for the second time
in the history of the world,
we will have discovered fire."

Erin--I remember learning about him when I was in high school (all-girls, Catholic, run by a bunch of radical nuns). I've always had a soft spot for him. I love those Jebbies; they're just so dang smart--and such rabble rousers.
