Retrodictions, canto 4, quatrain 7

Assured of Man’s supremacy?
O silly sibling, don’t be smug!
For great and wide’s our family tree,
dear sister seaweed, brother bug!

Commentary by Brother Quark:
More paganism! This sorcerer believes that man is literally distant cousin to beasts and even plants!

Commentary by N. Hellerstein:
This is about the evolutionary tree of life.
