The Metaphysicians' Knapsack.  To all who talk so boastfully of the scientific basis of their metaphysics it is best to make no reply.  It is enough to tug at the bundle that they rather shyly keep hidden behind their backs.  If one succeeds in lifting it, the results of that "scientific basis" come to light, to their great confusion: a dear little "God” a genteel immortality, perhaps a little spiritualism, and in any case a complicated mass of poor sinners' misery and Pharisee arrogance.
