The Lord maketh the earth... waste, and turneth it upside-
down... And it shall be, as with the people, so with the
priest; as with the servant, so with his master; as with the
maid, so with her mistress... The earth shall reel to and fro
like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage... The
Lord shall punish the host of the high ones… and the kings
of the earth upon the earth.
Isaiah xxiv, 1-2,20-21
“[A1:] There is no singular thing in Nature than which
there is not another more powerful and stronger.
Whatever one is given, there is another more powerful
by which the first can be destroyed.”
Ethics, Benedict De Spinoza, 117
