Matter is indeed infinitely and incredibly refined.

To anyone who has ever looked on the face of a dead child or parent
the mere fact that matter could have taken for a time
that precious form, ought to make matter sacred ever after.

It makes no difference what the principle of life may be, material or immaterial,
matter at any rate co-operates, lends itself to all life's purposes.

That beloved incarnation was among matter's possibilities.

pragmatism - william james - 1907
