God’s prophet of old vicariously cries out in song
“How long, O you sons of men
Will you turn my glory to shame?
How long will you love worthlessness?
And seek falsehood?”
And likewise, a prophet of the new sciences of mankind
Cries out in respect for truth
“How long, O my enlightened brothers
How long will it be well for us
To not admit all that we know to our own selves — then to the public
To not discard the illusions which anchor us in an existence that is but a total distortion of reality?”
–Oh my soul, How long?
