I'm not really sure what passage you are referring to. Any passage with nature and spirituality connected with it involves Simon. I chapter 6, Simon does not see the beast as a monster with claws and large teeth rather than he sees the beast as the inherent sickness of man.

Simon, walking in front of Ralph, felt a flicker of incredulity—a beast with claws that scratched, that sat on a mountain-top, that left no tracks and yet was not fast enough to catch Samneric. However Simon thought of the beast, there rose before his inward sight the picture of a human at once heroic and sick.
