The existence, or half-existence, of Matter brings about the necessity of morality. The Divine perfection is above morality, is ’unmoral’; the purely material is below morality; morality is for man; man - being divine at his topmost pitch and ’human’ at the mean, and brute below that and merely vegetative below that and merely Matter in the lowest range of his nature -man, if he is to reach his good, the desired of every being, must ’what in him is dark illumine, what is low raise and support’, if he is to rise to the height of his great argument, become what his highest is, attain his eternally destined Term. (Stephen MacKenna  )
