This essay, attributed to Patrick A. Moore but actually by his father, Alvin Moore, Jr., is an exegesis of the parable of the wise and foolish virgins (Matthew 25:1-13). Moore explores the symbolism of this enigmatic parable and, making much use of the thinking of St. Thomas Aquinas and others, he comes to the conclusion that the purpose of the story is to express "ingathering…concentration, the perfection of virtue, and the return to the Edenic state or the Earthly Paradise." It is Moore's contention that such perfection of the individual brings about "identification with the Eternal and Unique Word of God," thus true mystical union.

The concept of the journey of life, and the inevitability of death are examined in this article with the idea that man is not his own master, but rather is susceptible to influences from the world. The topic of man’s nature in his journey in life toward death is presented primarily in Christian terms, but with a broad spectrum of philosophies from this religion. The author incorporates numerous quotes in the article including some from writers and thinkers like Shakespeare, St Gregory of Sinai, Hermes and Dante. The article concludes with the statement that “an understanding of mans nature, implying an understanding of our principle and destiny, is most necessary for anyone who has a serious interest in truth…”
