The planetary spirit is accelerating its own development and this necessarily accelerates the development of all living creatures--plant, animal, and human--which dwell upon it. This is why man's experience crowds into one life what formerly he crowded into a few, and why world history crowds into one year the events which formerly took several years. If this increase in tempo has also accelerated human suffering by crowding it more closely together, it has also paradoxically increased human pleasures.
