    Lightbulb Already the mountain peaks are bright

    Should I read the bold part like: "{and shows him that} already the mountain peaks are bright"?

    Man had lost touch with the vast forces which lie around him, and his knowledge and aspirations had become bounded by the pitiful vibrations which make up his spectrum and the trivial octaves which limit his range of hearing. Spiritualism, the greatest movement for 2,000 years, rescues him from this condition, bursts the thin mists which have enshrouded him, and shows him new powers and unlimited vistas which lie beyond and around him, Already the mountain peaks are bright. Soon even in the valleys the sun of truth will shine.

    "The History of Spiritualism," by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    Re: Already the mountain peaks are bright

    Yes, and I see no need for a capital letter with already- it could be a printing or scanning error and I would not use a comma before it.
