There had to be millions of lost souls to create that vibrant of a glow.
It was the union of a small number of atoms of one kind with a small number of another kind to form a compound atom, or as we now say a "molecule."
But just in proportion as I regard this as not wholly a brute force, but partly a human force, and consider that I have relations to those millions as to so many millions of men, and not of mere brute or inanimate things, I see that appeal is possible, first and instantaneously, from them to the Maker of them, and, secondly, from them to themselves.
There were millions, maybe even billions of the lost souls!
They've been working for millions of years to get around this one; they're quite crafty at it.
