    Recording his ongoing, and disrupted attempts to continue writing 'Typical Developments', the narrator describes how he began a chapter 'On the Varieties of Inanimate Nature' which opens with the words: 'Philosophers, in every age, have directed their attention [...] to the possibilities of the power inherent in mere particles. The calm mind of inductive science, undisturbed by [...]'. The author was again forced to delay writing his work. (180)
