Standard for the Value of Truth.  The difficulty of climbing mountains is no gauge of their height.  Yet in the case of science it is different!  — we are told by certain persons who wish to be considered "the initiated"— the difficulty in finding truth is to determine the value of truth!  This insane morality originates in the idea that "truths" are really nothing more than gymnastic appliances, with which we have to exercise ourselves until we are thoroughly tired.  It is a morality for the athletes and gymnasts of the intellect.
