When we contacted Paul Winternitz about the use of this beautiful image for the cover of this issue, he perked up at the mention of Teilhard de Chardin. As it turns out, Paul admits to being influenced by Teilhard's thought in his work. Call it synchronicity or Providence, we see it as a sign that the image was perfect for this special edition.

Thank you, Paul.
