Excerpt from Love and Its Affinities
Even they who worship other gods worship me, although they know it not. - Krishna.
Taking a wide view of the matter under considera tion, the mind reverts at once to that pristine epoch in the life of man, when phallicism held universal sway. We are to deal with mortal passion, in its lowest and highest forms, as conditioned by sexual impulse, and, if possible, determine the occult yet vital relation subsisting between the loftiest abstract conception of unsullied love and the purely physical, yet overmastering, desire whose carnal gratification allies us to the brute creation.
