WINGLESS VICTORY

"'Yes,' he said, and I think he nearly chuckled; I know he put out his hand and touched my shoulder. `Yes, we don't dictate to life; as its acolytes, we only ask whether we may be permitted to be of assistance. The machine can only repeat, and if we repeated we should be machines and untrue to the stanchless creative mystery of the life within us. All we . may hope to do is to bring into consciousness, without thwarting that power, some of its mysterious potentiality.'
" 'Then,' l said tentatively and with a little sense of nervous humor, `you don't have incubators?'
" `No,' and now I was sure he chuckled, `no, we still think that life, when it takes a hand, should be allowed to have its head, and that, if I may go a step further in anatomy, means trusting the heart. You see, we know enough to know how little we know. I can tell you this: there is something superbly mysterious in parenthood. I am not talking from vague speculation. We did experiment, and we found out, as we are always finding out where nature lets us help, and where she has already told us what kind of help she wishes us to give. Something goes on between the parents and the chick even when it is in the egg. Probably it is a radiation which we have not yet "cracked." And like most natural balances it is a real balance. Life, when it is not thwarted, is a very just balancer. What is good for the chick is also good for the parents. They gain something from this fostering period as does their child.'
" This line of thought again gave me almost too much to turn over in my mind. I broke the silence by saying, We had a philosopher who started us on our present scientific career, and he said, `Obey nature in order to rule her.'
