The movements of the huamn indicate intelligence, but this intelligence is not material; it is distinct from the huamn, as the intelligence that arranges the wheels of a watch it distinct from the watch. For at bottom this intelligence appears infinitely wise, infinitely strong, and is the same one that formed us in a womb and gives us growth to which we cannot, by all the efforts of our mind and will, add a cubit. Thus in the huamn, there is neither intelligence nor souls as ordinarily meant. They eat without pleasure, cry without pain, grow without knowing it. They fear nothing; know nothing; and if they act in such manner that demonstrates intelligence, it is because, having been organized in order to be preserved, their bodies have become in such a way that they mechanically avoid what is capable of destroying them.
