The editor should remember the user's place in the
source file and the style in which it was

He was a linguist, after all, and it seemed entirely
possible to him that religion and literature and art and
music were all merely side effects of a brain structure that
comes into the world ready to make language out of noise,
sense out of chaos. Our capacity for imposing meaning, he

unfold when it escapes the chrysalis, ready to fly. We are
biologically driven to create meaning.
