a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye.

- It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn.
- You seek for knowledge and wisdom as I once did; and I ardently hope that the gratification
of your wishes may not be a serpent to sting you, as mine has been. (Frankenstein)
