Nierenstein gave the name "Tannophor" to the mother-substance of tannin, phenylbenzoate, C_6H_5-COO-C_6H_5.
To any power of sight which we can bring to bear upon it, this koilon appears to be homogeneous, though it is probably nothing of the kind, since homogeneity can belong to the mother-substance alone.
Now clearly, the scientist has faith that the unique mother-substance must be one beneath its superficial diversity.
I believe in a single Lord, biology, the unique son of the substance of the world, born from the mother substance after centuries of random shuffling of material: the encapsulated reflection of the great material sea, the epiphenomenal light of primordial darkness, the false reflection of the real world, consubstantial with the mother-substance.
It is he who has descended from the shadows of the mother-substance, he who has taken on flesh from matter, he who plays at the illusion of thought from flesh, he who has become the Human Brain.
