Divine art ...

... The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Person. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

... as a fan of Thomas Aquinas, I was glad to note that the greatest moral philosopher of all time seems to have intuited an increasingly plausible line:

'It is clear that nature is a certain kind of divine art impressed upon things, by which these things are moved to a determinate end. It is as if a shipbuilder were able to give to timbers that by which they would move themselves to take the form of a ship.'
