The end result of modernity… “And so we Apprentices misappropriated nature’s powers by setting ourselves up to rival the laws of nature. We have made ourselves into beings that aspire to the role of the gods, playing with forces we should leave alone…” Once the “gods” are gone, we become god. How’s that working for you?
“…perhaps faith and the sciences are not mutually exclusive ways of apprehending reality but rather ‘musical lines in a polyphonic score.’”
"...O sages standing in God’s holy fire
As in the gold mosaic of a wall,
Come from the holy fire, perne in a gyre,
And be the singing-masters of my soul.
Consume my heart away; sick with desire
And fastened to a dying animal
It knows not what it is; and gather me
Into the artifice of eternity..." -W.B. Yeats
