Two arrests in Turkey ‘coup plot’

The damned poultry is at it again!

No one would have believed in the early years of the twenty-first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency, men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurances of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the turkey farms as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of intelligent life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most, men fancied there might be other intelligences on the farms, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf , minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded our world with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us.
