WINGLESS VICTORY

"`Goodby. I know enough to know that there is no chance or accident. You came here and have learned. And we have learned, too. The process we serve comes from behind all material appearance and thence it returns again. We shall all have learned-all the more if for the moment we don't quite know what to make of this particular piece of knowledge.'
" So I was to go back. I felt, I own, a moment's self-centered relief. It was better to go back to one's own kind than to live with strangers, however kind, however wise. Better to be with one's own than even with the good and the enlightened. But I take a little credit to myself that in the middle of my self-interest there did cross my mind a thought for these extraordinary hosts of mine.
" `One question,' I said, getting up and feeling a kind of strength come to me just by asking it. But I didn't get far enough to put it into words.
" `Thank you,' he said, `I had hoped you would ask that. It is, isn't it? If we let you go out, you will tell the world, and the world will come, and we shall be destroyed."Yes,' I said, `that's it; that's pretty sure, isn't it?'
" `I hope we'd let you go,' he said, `even if the risk were all you think, for why should your side always fail when given knowledge and our side always fail when using trust? But, as it happens, that choice at present is not put before us. No one can enter this place unless we wish it. First of all, no one will ever suspect this place is here:
" But surely they will fly over it?' I asked.
" `Probably, but if they do, they will look down on such a close cloud pack that they will mistake it for a snowfield.'
