The Hayes’ Contention

There is a theory that He

is but a filtration of what once was,

where time’s taken out the peripheral, Factor A,

with Factor B, natural selection – both brutal and deft –

reducing Man to what one notorious exponent

described as “No more or less experiential than the chance of

surviving a sharp frost or unknowingly looking the right way at the

salient point – a lucky blow rather than martial

supremacy. Thus He is less science than incidental art.”
