“Raft Amphibians”

You marvel that this matter, shuffled pell-mell at the whim of Chance, could have made a man, seeing that so much was needed for the construction of his being. But you must realize that a hundred million times this matter, on the way to human shape, has been stopped to form now a stone, now lead, now coral, now a flower, now a comet; and all because of more or fewer elements that were or were not necessary for designing a man. (Excerpt from “Voyage Dans La Lune,” written by Cyrano De Bergerac in 1661 and translated by Maurice Laugaa and Hector Savinien in 1984.)
