Mastering the Universe

“Love, gratitude, devotion, faith, and trust were previously reserved for God and nature and your fellow man. You are worshipping what you have made, which is shallow and dead, and have averted your eyes from the world you have been given, which is magnificent and full. He does not need our constructions for His habitations. Anything man creates is a delusion to provide the answers to his questions and to comfort him. The conviction that one has mastered the elements of the universe or soon will, is a sin, not understanding the requirement of humility. This is rather different from your little mousetrap for God.”

Jacob and the Telephone, Mark Helprin
