“Dead” Matter?

I would say that if “dead” matter has reared up this curious landscape of fiddling crickets, song sparrows,and wondering men, it must be plain even to the most devoted materialist that the matter of which he speaks contains amazing, if not dreadful powers, and may not impossibly be, as Hardy has suggested, “but one mask of many worn by the Great Face behind.”

Loren Eiseley, from The Immense Journey
