You will be like gods! The euphoria occults then what a day, necessarily, will occur. It is written: They saw they were naked… The hidden part of the play of the Prince of this world was probably never as much suspected than in our days when this foolish adventure begins to turn badly.
The birth certificate of our modernity seals the rupture of Alliance. It emerges, quasi imperceptibly, around the year 1100. It begins with an 'innocent' sin against the Logos, which, then, cannot be any more simply that of the Greeks. The nominalist temptation begins whispering this simple question: when you speak, when you think, is it necessary that there is a guarantor other than yourself to ensure the fundamental consistency of your word and of your thought?
This whispered doubt will be made clamour, amplified by the thousand echoes of the cave. Five centuries later, from this doubt will proceed the founding assertion - I think thus I am - of our more recent modernity.
Eight centuries of history should be taken up again to show how, starting from innocent emergences, the Judeo-Christian disproportion will run his adventure in autonomy. How by a series of increasingly daring ruptures this disproportion gets horizontal in the pagan immanence until atheism. How the whole modern adventure, as for its energy and its fruitfulness, is nothing else than the continuation of the Judeo-Christian experience, but without the Other one, without God. How the most dynamic of our modern values are basically, in spite of misleading appearances, Judeo-Christian values, but turning 'freewheel' and become 'crazy' because they spinned out of the source of sense. How it is each time the greatest boldness against the Alliance which is acclaimed on the scene of the world while passing for more 'liberating'. How, by doing this, the bad roles in the play fall quasi fatally on the holders of Alliance. How the 'revolutionary' dynamics of their faith is robbed, recovered without the faith, and even turned against them. Against the Alliance.
Malice of the 'Prince of this world'… Irony of history… Humour of God…
Here you can see a freedom, radically opened by the existential encounter with the infinite 'I Am', which will historically buckle itself in anthropocentric autonomy. Man, become divine by grace of 'I Am', closes his deification on itself and wants to become God without God. In the place of God. Consequently God must die so that the man can be absolutely. The son of the Other one wants to become son of himself. The birth certificate of our modernity breaks the originating communion and founds man in his anthropocentric autonomy.
Very deeply something like a reversed negative theology is played. Out of this space of strict 'humanity' it was necessary - symmetrical inversion of the account of Genesis? - to drive out God. Too much in the way, therefore, the Judeo-Christian Father, face to our claim of purely parthenogenetic origin. Too much in the way, the Father of being, the Father of Good, the Father of Truth since our own productions, our own values, our own clearnesses are enough. Too much in the way, outrageously too much in the way, the Father with his Son and the Holy Spirit!
However you can never finish driving out God. He resists beyond your logic and your coherence which are only very shallow. Deeply, much more deeply, at the same time occulted and driven back, attractive and alarming, the great dramaturgy is played, Mysterious reversed negative theology! Thecombat of Jacob does not finish. The hard struggle of spirits. Man can never come back from there but limping. After that the fight begins again and again… The 'theo-machy' continues.
The gravity of the fall is measured at the height from where one falls. The height from where man falls is vertiginous. Can he fall from elsewhere than from God? Man is human only in alliance. In original alliance with the Logos whose light, already, lights up any man coming in this world. To conspire against the Covenant is to conspire against the word at its source, it means to conspire against the 'man making up logos', it means to conspire against man. Thus, against the Alliance, it happens that a conspiracy rises. Face to the Word which wants to tie all things in fidelity and love is opposed a speech which mobilizes in division. Something like a factious pact of rebellious elements, a schizoid pact.
This orchestration through space and time of our world plays so massively, so invariably, against the Covenant that it wears by that, quasi tangibly, the mark of a strange conspiracy, the signature of a radical negativity which transcends literally the intra-mundane capacities. Thus man decides in a world whose major stakes overflow this world! Something like a gigantic ultra-cosmic confrontation between light and darkness... Perhaps only the clear eyes of a child of the Alliance can make it possible to foresee its occult consistency and to reveal it like conspiracy against the Covenant, against God and his Christ. A pact of anti-Alliance tied up by a mysterious schizoid solidarity orchestrated by the Satan which is also Legion…
Once the Alliance broken, once God driven out and back, man remains with his autistic turning in on himself. Something like a schizophrenia. With a cut away spirit. With a divided spirit. With a broken spirit. We do not any more need you! Man expels the grace and sees himself delivered to the capital sins, i.e. to the sources of all sins. And initially, pride.
Explosiveness Judeo-Christian does not remain indefinitely not contained. The son of the Greek mother asserts for oneself the paternal heritage. The man revealed divine by grace wants to become god without the Father. The divine man expressed through the experiment Judeo-Christian wants to only continue this experiment without God. The Judeo-Christian disproportion, until there verticalized, breaks the' measurement' of the Alliance and, responsible for a dynamics which comes to it from the Other, begins again itself in autonomy and explodes in horizontality. Then starts the adventure of the great schizoidism which buckles the divine possible one of the man on himelf and deploys it, anthropocentric, in his immense cave of Utopia. The son of the pagan mother asserts for himself the paternal heritage. Man revealed divine through the Judeo-Christian experience wants to become god without the Father.
The origin of our modernity breaks the originating communion and founds the man in his anthropocentric autonomy.
Bucklingthe loop of man on himself we constituted ourselves an empire of humanity. In an autogenous way. Without the Other one. In autonomy. With our lengths, our widths, our heights and our depths. Something like a cave - yes, this impertinent relevance of Plato, already! - a cave with infinite claims, but nevertheless a cave. There we opened a world of simply phenomenal possibilities. The infinity of these possibilities could give us enough giddiness to daze us face to the crucial questions. Then we imagined to seek our humanity but in the vast set of these possibilities, in the extension of our field of being and of action, far from infinite openings…
We scientifically disarticulated the density of the being to get an expansion of indefinitely articulable elements, in our own way and pleasure. That allowed us to become masters of the constructive possibilities. And, indeed, we started to build, to build in all the meanings of the word and in all the fields, with frenzy. At the point to confuse the sense with this constructive possibility. There we lost our soul. Because soul is not built and construction oppresses it. Soul inspires, soul expires, in the breath of the Spirit.
Where to seek the truth on basic essentials? You cannot find it in horizontal spaces. You can find it only at the verticality of the world and of yourself.
