All things, by their relation to each other, can give omens; because all together they are only different parts of one animal, the Universe. … Wise men see beforehand that which may happen;…Some … prophesy by … listening to the songs of birds, or through watching their flight and their haunts. … (A)ll are able to draw prognostications from everything. If a bird had our intelligence, man would serve it, as the bird serves man, for knowledge and divination: because we are as to them that which they are to us, a race which, always renewing itself and as old as the world, is entirely qualified to give signs. – from On Dreams by Saint Synesios, 4th century – translated by Isaac Myer 1888.
