Then, to show how conclusive is this similar appearance of the human and lower
forms in their early embryonic condition, as a proof of evolution by transmutation,
Professor Haeckel goes to the expense of producing two elaborate plates ... It is

display goggles and data gloves, are showing enormous potential. The human
