If you have ever climbed a high mountain, you remember that you started in the shadows of the trees at the base, where there was little or no outlook. You could see a few hundred yards around you, but after a while you rose above the tops of the trees and looked out upon a beautiful landscape. As you climbed higher, the fields and the running streams appeared, but you could see only one-half of the horizon; the other half was shut off by the mountain. But when you reached the top, you found yourself in a great circular room, bounded by the horizon on all sides, carpeted with green, and bordered with curtains of crimson and gold.
