"Man--this is the mystery of religion--projects his being into
objectivity, and then again makes himself an object to this projected
image of himself thus converted into a subject; he thinks of himself, is
an object to himself, but as the object of an object, of another being
than himself."
--Ludwig Andreas Feuerbach, _The Essence of Christianity_, pp. 29-30
