Page 7 - WE AND THE WORLD AROUND US EVOLVE. This evolution is nowhere more marked than in our own consciousness. When we try to enter into the religious texts of the ancient Egyptians, we have to admit that they are total enigmas to us. Our science would almost certainly be equally incomprehensible to them. They were, for example, obvious masters of what today we call force in physics, but they used it completely intuitively, without any concept of it.
