More is the whole than a part: but half is more than the whole:

Clearly, The soul is the body: but is not the body the soul?

 

One and two are not one: but one and nothing is two:

Truth can hardly be false, if falsehood cannot be true.

 

Once the mastodon was: pterodactyls were common as cocks:

Then mammoth was God: now is He a prize Ox.

 

Parallel all things are: yet many of these are askew:

You are certainly I: but certainly I am not you.

 

 

from:  The Higher Pantheism in a Nutshell
