the two cosmological extremes:
(a) a worldly world (closed or open, doesn’t matter)—the realm of a complex of abstract laws; and
(b) a ‘sacred’ world, a ‘panpsychic’ one—the realm of a complex of abstract powers.
both debase both the world and man’s consciousness to a dire circle of impersonal (and impersonalizing) necessity. world and consciousness in an endless vicious circle of mutually failed roles: those of lord and bondsman—infinitely unfulfilled desire.

the way-out:
the world as Spirit’s image—holy in its fundamental intention, in its per-form-ance; but changeable and contingent in its nature. an image of Word’s image.
