Two revolutions

Sometimes we are likely to believe a little naively that these extraordinary assets of our modernity come to us directly, by continuous evolution, out of the pagan legacy. However they imply all a gigantic rupture. Because these assets are rich today of an 'opening' which they could acquire only through a dialectical confrontation with their 'other' one. One needed generations of men - perhaps ignored today - to think and live them through their difference.
Time between creation and parousia. History between time and eternity. The person between individual and creative act. Existence between being and creation. Freedom between essence and existence. Experience between understandable and real. Destiny between fate and grace. Fault between destiny and sin. Etc.

You have to go further back through history. Two great ruptures open basically new human possibilities. Two gigantic revolutions. And two only! All the others are nourished some and are articulated on them. Ten thousand years separate us from emergences of the first. And four thousand years from the origins of the second one.

The first one started more than 10.000 years ago. The second one made irruption 4.000 years ago. Very schematically one can say that the essential intention of the
Neolithic revolution aims at integrating the other in the same one and to compose the same one with the same one. In safety. In harmony. In structural enclosure. The essential aiming of the Judeo-Christian revolution, on the other hand, is to expose itself to the
other one, to run infinitely the adventure of the ceaseless exodus, in one word, to risk Passover. Through rupture, in infinite opening.

On one side plays the relevance of the
components, on the other side that of exponents. The 'components' guarantee coherences and the harmonies. The 'exponents' open to disproportion. Two long series of radical discrepancies simply evoked here. Two radically different designs of the totality. Two radically different visions of man. Two different spaces and two different times. Two different possibilities for thinking and for acting.

Through the providential meeting between our pagan mother and our Judeo-Christian father the maternal 'components' and the paternal 'exponents' giving birth to Occident were embraced.

Betweenthe two ruptures, an infinite difference. The Neolithic rupture is
thetic and plays horizontally. The Judeo-Christian rupture is antithetic and plays vertical. The Neolithic revolution says deeply yes. The Judeo-Christian revolution returns all 'yes' towards a more fundamental 'no'. It exceeds what is obvious. It is a kind of 'insanity' for the pure reason. The Judeo-Christian revolution is not parallel. On one hand it emerges starting from the Neolithic revolution and spreads out in the middle of the Neolithic revolution. On the other hand it means radical rupture of the movement itself of the Neolithic revolution. It is a kind of revolution in the revolution. Much more, it is permanent revolution in the hearth of its own revolution.

From this inter-fecundation of the '
thetic' components of the Neolithic revolution and the 'antithetic' exponents of the Judeo-Christian revolution will arise, after a very long gestation, an extraordinary deployment of growth and acceleration. The motor of this embrace of such an extreme difference is
