„Our story of evolution ended with a stirring in the brain-organ of the latest of Nature's experiments“

— Arthur Stanley Eddington, Context: Our story of evolution ended with a stirring in the brain-organ of the latest of Nature's experiments; but that stirring of consciousness transmutes the whole story and gives meaning to its symbolism. Symbolically it is the end, but looking behind the symbolism it is the beginning.<!--III, p.38
