Background

A description of the experience

Thomas H. Huxley

The known is finite, the unknown infinite; intellectually we stand on an islet in the midst of an illimitable ocean of inexplicability.  Our business in every generation is to reclaim a little more land ....

Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority.

The source of the experience

Huxley, Thomas
