Then there is this: "IN an article published in The Monist for January 1891, I endeavored to show what ideas ought to form the warp of a system of philosophy, and particularly emphasised that of absolute chance." Is that an exaggeration? Or is it God's notion of correcting errors that would otherwise occur? Or?
