If you are sensible enough to find your way here, then you certainly do not belong to the three sub-species mentioned below! The reasoning is simple, what Dr. Nostuabuk writes, is so beneath them as to require no notice at all.
Djarles Djarwine, known to his friends as Djolly, once confided in me that he was on the verge of a discovering the “missing link”. He said that there was something which could only be approximatively called “celestial selection”. His thesis was that the “missing link” was a special form of humanity, homo astrologicus, who stands between microcosm and macrocosm. His premise being that both Natura and Urania subject their subjects to a rigorous process of selection where only the strongest survive. Whereas Natura rules over the realms of mineral, plant, animal and humankind; Urania has sway only over the most advanced of human beings – the astrologer. He alone is at the forefront of evolution. There are three subspecies; homo astrologicus traditionalis, homo astrologicus modernus and homo astrologicus hybridus. Each can be recognised by a particular cry:
- homo astrologicus traditionalis: “I have discovered a most ancient master. He is all-wise.”
- homo astrologicus modernus: “This works for me. I am all-wise.”
- homo astrologicus hybridus: “I have discovered a most ancient master. It works for me. I am all-wise.”
When I told him that I thought the whole theory a bit simplistic. He responded, “You just wait and see. In the course of the years there will be plenty of this subspecies coming your way.” When I asked about all the others who weren’t the vanguard of mankind and still studied astrology? He replied, “Oh, those. My theory only includes the pompous. For only they would think that they are better than everyone else.”
Djarles where are you?
