This early Ursula K. Le Guin story, her second published, depicts a far future Earth where humanity struggles to regain ground lost by natural disaster. A new repressive religion makes progress slow for those who value a fidelity to reality and those who would make the tools to measure truth are punished by those who only value their own position and obedience to authority.
First published in Fantastic Stories Of Imagination, February 1963
