Book Note: Persuasion and Rhetoric by Carlo Michelstaedter #16

If the will of nature to actualize itself in a single point by means of the sequence of individual crystallizations culminates in a man's consciousness, which is vast in time and space and in which an almost infinite variety of things is revived by love, then, even in this form, projected outward in time and determined in a certain manner, that same will deprives itself without respite of the actual possession of self and, remaining maining infinite despite everything, does not attain pure crystal, the absolute individual, god. 

Calls Evola to mind with 'Absolute Individual'. The image of crystal also is an alchemical metaphor for the philosopher's stone.
