ΚΕΦΑΛΗ    Κ

SAMSON

The Universe is in equilibrium; therefore He that is
   without it, though his force be but a feather, can
   overturn the Universe.
Be not caught within that web, O child of Freedom!
   Be not entangled in the universal lie, O child of
   Truth!

COMMENTARY (Κ)

      Samson, the Hebrew Hercules, is said in the legend to have pulled down the walls of a music-hall where he was engaged, "to make sport for the Philistines", destroying them and himself. Milton founds a poem on this fable.
      The first paragraph is a corollary of Newton's First Law of Motion. The key to infinite power is to reach the Bornless Beyond.
