    For did the Prophet not write:

    “The History of every major Galactic Civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases.

(The prof was extremely impressed that I used the word “sinter” in a sentence.)
