While mortals were using tallow dips for lighting purposes they were satisfied, for the time being, with that idea of light; but as progress brought forward oil, gas, electric light, they willingly accepted the clearer expression of light. Now, light still remained a perfect, unchangeable whole, our conception only, had expanded, and with each advancing change we saw more clearly.
