Conversely, I believe it was Mike who suggested some time ago
(particularly for those who communicate with this list via e-mail,
especially the ones who receive a daily digest) that excessive
portions of unnecessary text from earlier in a message thread be
eliminated prior to replying. It cuts down on a lot of "scrolling"
and skimming for the "substance" of a post on the part of the reader.

I cannot remember the name of his book, but Flammarion was into the
Occult and Metaphysical, more or less Theosophical in tone if I
remember right, so he may have consciously altered the older 16th
Century image to suit his more modern Occult outlook. Just another
coincidence, though perhaps. AFAIK, he was not involved in the late
19th century French Gnostic movement, though I could be wrong on
