This illustration came to mind last night; A bird sees the writings of Shakespeare, and after bobbing around it, begins to rip out the paper and turns it into shreds to build a nice nest. Of course, how resourceful this intelligent bird is. So likewise another branch of evolution, monkeys to mankind studies astronomy, chemistry, biology, physics, and morality, continually assuming that their "facts and theories" are all reliable uses of the materials around them; when in reality they have perverted the real purpose of the resource. Man can no more expect to properly and accurately understand chemistry and we can expect a bird to understand Shakespeare, just as the bird is the circular reference to his application, so man is the circular reference to his application, and both are wrong.
