Universal knowledge

We have inherited from our forefathers the keen longing for unified, all-embracing knowledge.

We feel clearly that we are only now beginning to acquire reliable material for welding together the sum total of all that is known into a whole;

I can see no other escape from this dilemma than that some of us should venture to embark on a synthesis of facts and theories, albeit with second-hand and incomplete knowledge of some of them—and at the risk of making fools of ourselves.
