Everything ever held to be sacred is from a modern perspective a prejudice, a groundless, irrational belief. What as moderns we fail to notice is that the sacred is groundless because of a deficiency in the modern perceptual apparatus. The sacred is groundless to us because we are unable to apprehend it as ground, as what supports reality as opposed to what has to be interrogated about its reality.
“Pride believes in disbelief,” said Maistre. Modern intellectual acuity is a blindness. Dare to not be clever.
