Such a character is profoundly emotional, intelligent, and full of Life. He works creatively within the mechanisms of his present adaptation, as one who is lived and pervaded by Life. Thus, he is a creative force or ecstatic agency of Life, rather than a self-possessed, abstracted, chronically reactive or strategically nonreactive opponent of his own morality. He grows, adapts, and cuts through. He is not weak, but strong. His freedom is shown in his aggressive, self-yielding resort to the Divine under all circumstances. He is not passionless. Rather, his passion is pressed to God.
