CO-ECHOING.  All stronger moods bring with them a co-echoing of kindred sensations and moods, they grub up the memory, so to speak.  Along with them something within us remembers and becomes conscious of similar conditions and their origin.  Thus there are formed quick habitual connections of feelings and thoughts, which eventually, when they follow each other with lightning speed, are no longer felt as complexes but as unities.  In this sense one speaks of the moral feeling, of the religious feeling, as if they were absolute unities: in reality they are streams with a hundred sources and tributaries.  Here also, as so often happens, the unity of the word is no security for the unity of the thing.
