When are we reading Entangled Life?

Speaking of Humboldt - in our upcoming book, "Entangled Life," at the very end of Chapter 2, (Loc 1173) the author, Merlin Sheldrake says:
"In 1845, Alexander von Humboldt observed that “Each step that we make in the more intimate knowledge of nature leads us to the entrance of new labyrinths.” -
the paragraph ends with “oldest of life’s labyrinths" - which leads to the following note:
"oldest of life’s labyrinths:” Humboldt (1849), vol. 1, p. 20. - and that’s Loc 4448 in the Notes.
Then we go to the Bibliography and find the first entry under “Humboldt”:
Humboldt A von. 1849. Cosmos: A Sketch of Physical Description of the Universe. London, UK: Henry G. Bohn.
There are 4 Notes from either the English “Cosmos" or the German “Kosmos" both of which are available at Amazon. - In fact, you can get “Works of Alexander von Humboldt” which contains 4 works - Cosmos and Personal Narrative volumes 1, 2 and 3 - on Kindle for $2.99.
Yep - sometimes I wonder if the universe isn’t expanding because we know more and more and so more and more is created. Labyrinths indeed - we are creating the big one.
