"The passion to be remembered if possible when oblivion overtakes all others is tremendous from it flows every envy, the cause according to the biblical narrative, of the crime which began human history: the murder of Abel by his brother Cain. It was not a struggle for bread: it was a struggle to survive in God, in the divine memory. Envy is a thousand times more terrible than physical hunger, for envy, is a spiritual hunger. If the so-called problem of life, the basic problem of food, were ever solved, the earth would be turned into a hell, as the struggle for survival would become even more intense . . . We aim at being everything because we feel it is the only way to escape being nothing."
