Quote of the Day (2/1/11) (Owen Barfield Week II)

Thus, at the final stage in the process of evolution and bringing it full circle, we awake to see the whole as an expression of the original polarity. We see realized as fact that polarity which, as dialectic, was found to constitute the nature of grammar and logic—the I AM in the act of reproducing itself. That which I AM has so long and laboriously created, itself affirms "I am." The Son of God awakes on earth and, awakened, names himself the Son of Man.
--Owen Barfield, Romanticism Comes of Age 161
