The religious attitude...


...is psychological circumscription. It's drawing around oneself a circle of exclusion -- a protective gesture to ward off the Unthinkable. 

Whereas, psychological nobility requires the attempt to think the Unthinkable (an attitude of wonder). The only tool of leverage for this attempt is poetry, not the inscribing compass of complacent dogma.

    Curious. :)
