    To attain perfection as an evolutionary experience implies something other-than-perfection as a point of departure, and this is the origin of potential evil. If the Creator should retire as the present upholder of all creation, there would immediately occur a universal collapse. Nor has sufficient work been done to fully explain the relationship between the Jesuits' efforts to evangelize and civilize those areas within the Catholic fold and those without. But if personality has the prerogative of exercising volitional choice of reality identification, and if this is a true and free choice, then must evolving personality also have the possible choice of becoming self-confusing, self-disrupting, and self-destroying. When Connie would not help her, Soane lost the baby.

    Each man involved tells a different story of what happened. Real trouble, lasting disappointment, serious defeat, or inescapable death can come only if we lose sight of the governing power of the central spirit nucleus. However, the brightest of the children, Billy, seeks the power that can be found in the lowest parts of the monastery. Is faith — the supreme assertion of human thought — desirable?

    He knows himself as Carl, the Saint, and goes with his handler, Kelly, to America and ends up discovering who he truly is. Throughout the novel, the women of the Convent provide a safe haven for all those who come to its doorstep. Is faith — the supreme assertion of human thought — desirable? Arnette Fleetwood: Jefferson's younger sister. Giles Cripplegate, in London. In a sense, they rescue each other.
