Man's unique peculiarity is his contemplative process, his aspiration that be does not know all and that those things which remain a mystery to him are somehow better than those things which he understands. Thus, in times of aspirational need, he turns from his awareness to his senses of unawareness, or to things that seem right because they have been proven true. These things have little to do with reality, for reality can only be proved by what is past. If we are to move reality to where it can be used, then it will have to be placed forward of now. A concomitant of man's contemplative process is his ability to record both what he knows and what he aspires to. This thesis is concerned with those things to which he aspires.
