Some Wit, Wisdom & Bewilderment

The third Universe comprises everything whose being consists in active power to establish connections between different objects, especially between objects in different Universes. Such is everything which is essentially a Sign - not the mere body of the Sign, which is not essentially such, but so to speak, the Sign’s Soul, which has its Being in its power of serving as intermediary between its Object and a Mind. Such, too, is a living consciousness, and such the life, the power of growth, of a plant. Such is a living constitution - a daily newspaper, a great fortune, a social ‘movement’.
A Neglected Argument for the Reality of God, 1908
