I (Just after publication): The novelty is absurd
and subversive of Religion and Morality.

II (Twenty years later): The Novelty is absolute Truth
and will yield a full and satisfactory
explanation of things in general -

III (Forty years later): The Novelty won't explain
things in general after all, and therefore is a wretched failure.
The propounder a very ordinary person advertised by a clique.
IV (A century later): The Novelty a mixture of truth and error.
Explains as much as could reasonably be expected.
The propounder worthy of all honor
in spite of his share of human frailties,
as one who has added to the permanent possessions of science.
