An account in which a mountain climber, resting at the summit of Mount Aconcagua in the Andes, encounters there a man from the Moon who tells him that humanity is part but not necessarily the peak of Evolution, and who decries the feeble arguments of human Religions against this fact. When the climber asks him "Are we like the beasts that perish then?" the "Lunar Excursionist" responds, "We are the beasts that perish".
