Confinement

A certain modernity was gradually constituted by buckling the human realm on itself. The entire system wanted to function in
enclosure. For the first time since man exists a cultural system claims to be closed in absolute autonomy. It wants to function and progress in self-sufficiency and to be by auto-creation. This means that from now on man wants to be the creator of the whole 'hot source' of all his spiritual energy. With his total sense locked up in immanence and in total finiteness. Forgetting his inescapable entropy. Forgetting his 'cold well'. Forgetting his accumulators yet not completely discharged but in danger of getting so and of reducing to nothing his claims of autonomy.

Absurdity comes from
enclosure. When the schizoid existence remains without bond with the total being, without bond with the total reason, without bond
with the total Sense. All that is left is a broken being where absurdity fills up the interstices. All that is left is the impossible task to gather the pieces of the burst reason.



The anthropocentric schizoid disorder by which modernity comes to itself wants to buckle its autonomy in total enclosure. For the first time since man exists, the human-producing system functions by giving itself its 'hot source', that is by warming up the hot source of his sense and of his significances and also by reloading continually his semantic accumulators. The 'hot source' and the 'cold well' of the living sense are locked up in absolute finiteness. The total sense is thus produced exclusively from
immanence inside an enclosure. But at the same time it has to endorse the 'cold well' of the production of its semantic entropy. Rise of absurdity, bizarre, disenchantment, despair…

Of course, even in its extreme enclosure our modernity does not cease taking part, often more unconsciously than consciously, with some 'transcendence'. Without this subterfuge it could not survive a long time without succumbing to asphyxiation. Thus the rupture with the 'hot source' is never totally consumed. And especially the accumulators are never completely discharged.
 
Why do civilizations die? The reason should not be different from that which governs the dead of any live system. You can state in a very simple way.
A living being dies when it is locked up and, being caught in its enclosure, succumbs to its entropy.

The
allegory of the Cave emphasizes the basic essentials. Authentic humanity cannot mix up its 'oïkos' with a cave. When being enclosed, the spiritual energy of authentic humanity can only succumb to entropy and be degraded. Alas we live in the illusion of an infinitely growing opening that we grant to ourselves. See our 'freedom'. Without regulation, without constraint, without a home… just a tramp! By buckling us on our enclosed possibilities we buckle ourselves into absurdity. You have to open the human space on the infinity of God. Only then a large space for hope opens. Here the impossible Devil of Maxwell
must yield his place to the Angel of grace.

By which miracle the human realm buckled on itself wouldn't he succumb to its entropy? Our modernity lives in the illusion of such a miracle. Obnubilated by our huge possibilities we believe that humanity can be by itself and for itself its own 'hot source'. Why man, producer of tools, producer of texture, producer of text, wouldn't he also be producer of what comes to him from elsewhere, by grace?
