Rebellion, Not Size

“Our problem is not that we are finite, but rather that we are rebellious. If finitude were the problem, then clearly the problem is someone else’s fault. We clearly had nothing to do with the fact that we are teeny little bits of matter on the face of the cosmos. We can’t help being small . . . The problem is in our heart, not in the limited number of our molecules” (Mere Fundamentalism, pp. 12-13).
