And, in time, men and women learned to love one another, and not just be a use to one another, for they learned that they were in need of each other, in order that they should live, and that their children might live. And both men and women loved their children.
The beasts that called themselves men did not follow in this manner, for all to them was power, even to the distraction and harm of their own children.
And still men learned not, and slithered in the ways of the serpent; and upon their bellies did they stalk their fellows. They neither stood upright nor did they show themselves, such was their new-found cunning, which did no good to any.
