[Chapter 55 'of the Monstrous Pictures of whales']
this warp seems necessity;
i ply my own shuttle and weave my own destiny into these unalterable threads.
this savage's sword finally shapes and fashions both warp and woof;
this easy, indifferent sword must be chance
aye, chance, free will, and necessity
wise incompatible all interweavingly working together.
the straight warp of necessity, not to be swerved from its ultimate course
its every alternating vibration, indeed, only tending to that;
and free will still free to ply her shuttle between given threads;
and chance, though restrained in its play within the right lines of necessity,
and sideways in its motions directed by free will,
though thus prescribed to by both,
chance by turns rules either,
and has the last featuring blow at events.
