secret to freedom,
walking lightly, untroubled:
tongue that never lies,
a heart that covets nothing,
hands that refuse all evil.

For a scientist who has lived by his faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream.  He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.
