It is us who have endowed the universe with exorbitant qualities, which exist within us, we must have endowed it with them since, even if it possessed them, we could not prove the presence of what cannot be proved, and would have to contribute them from our own resources, to complete the limited concept we have of it; all things are only ways of imagining reality, and so to speak vague powers we possess.
