Philosophy bestows life in that it reveals the dignity and purpose of living. Materiality
bestows death in that it benumbs or clouds those faculties of the human soul which
should be responsive to the enlivening impulses of creative thought and ennobling virtue.
How inferior to these standards of remote days are the laws by which men live in the
twentieth century! Today man, a sublime creature with infinite capacity for selfimprovement,
in an effort to be true to false standards, turns from his birthright of
understanding--without realizing the consequences--and plunges into the maelstrom of
material illusion. The precious span of his earthly years he devotes to the pathetically
futile effort to establish himself as an enduring power in a realm of unenduring things.
Gradually the memory of his life as a spiritual being vanishes from his objective mind
and he focuses all his partly awakened faculties upon
JOHN AND THE VISION OF
THE APOCALYPSE.
From an engraving by
Jean Duvet.
Jean Duvet of Langres (who was born in 1485 and presumably died sometime after 1561, the year in which
his illustrations to the Apocalypse were printed in book form) was the oldest and greatest of French
Renaissance engravers. Little is known concerning Duvet beyond the fact that he was the goldsmith to the
King of France. His engravings for the Book of Revelation, executed after he had passed his seventieth
year, were his masterpiece. (For further information regarding this obscure master, consult article by
William M. Ivins, Jr., in The Arts, May, 1926.) The face of John is an actual portrait of Duvet. This plate,
like many others cut by Duvet, is rich in philosophical symbolism.
p. 202
the seething beehive of industry which he has come to consider the sole actuality. From
the lofty heights of his Selfhood he slowly sinks into the gloomy depths of ephemerality.
He falls to the level of the beast, and in brutish fashion mumbles the problems arising
from his all too insufficient knowledge of the Divine Plan. Here in the lurid turmoil of a
great industrial, political, commercial inferno, men writhe in self-inflicted agony and,
reaching out into the swirling mists, strive to clutch and hold the grotesque phantoms of
success and power.
Ignorant of the cause of life, ignorant of the purpose of life, ignorant of what lies beyond
the mystery of death, yet possessing within himself the answer to it all, man is willing to
sacrifice the beautiful, the true, and the good within and without upon the blood-stained
altar of worldly ambition. The world of philosophy--that beautiful garden of thought
wherein the sages dwell in the bond of fraternity--fades from view. In its place rises an
empire of stone, steel, smoke, and hate-a world in which millions of creatures potentially
human scurry to and fro in the desperate effort to exist and at the same time maintain the
vast institution which they have erected and which, like some mighty, juggernaut, is
rumbling inevitably towards an unknown end. In this physical empire, which man erects
in the vain belief that he can outshine the kingdom of the celestials, everything is changed
to stone, Fascinated by the glitter of gain, man gazes at the Medusa-like face of greed and
stands petrified.
In this commercial age science is concerned solely with the classification of physical
knowledge and investigation of the temporal and illusionary parts of Nature. Its so-called
practical discoveries bind man but more tightly with the bonds of physical limitation,
Religion, too, has become materialistic: the beauty and dignity of faith is measured by
huge piles of masonry, by tracts of real estate, or by the balance sheet. Philosophy which
connects heaven and earth like a mighty ladder, up the rungs of which the illumined of all
ages have climbed into the living presence of Reality--even philosophy has become a
prosaic and heterogeneous mass of conflicting notions. Its beauty, its dignity, its
transcendency are no more. Like other branches of human thought, it has been made
materialistic--"practical"--and its activities so directionalized that they may also
contribute their part to the erection of this modern world of stone and steel.

"We have to expose those who bear false witness for the false witness bearers that they are. And we have to do it in a straight-forward, plainspoken way."

"...the characteristic goal of the religion of the status quo is ideological hegemony throughout the state or empire in which it is active, and to this end it energetically proselytizes, attempting to disseminate its contents to all segments of society. Full hegemony, however, lies always beyond its grasp, and it meets strong resistance among various sectors of the population... ...whose sufferings are too great for the solace extended by the religion of the status quo."
Bruce Lincoln - Holy Terrors: Thinking about Religion after September 11 (p. 82.)

"...when you go to towns or communities that have alternative radio or other media that involve community participation, the general mood is strikingly different. And the reason is, people there are constantly challenged with a different point of view, and they can participate in the debates, they're not just passive spectators."

"I believe the worst violation of all is the disconnection
from self. What a horrific crime to convince a person that
disconnecting from themselves is a spiritual achievement."
