A psychosis of our culture
Once God driven back, once the Alliance rejected, there remains a schizophrenic sovereignty. The autistic withdrawal of the human reality on itself. The reason locked up on itself until insanity. This our modern schizoid enclosure is not a neutral fact. It is a guilty schizophrenia. And precisely this culpability is driven back.
A sickness of a culture is infinitely more serious than an sickness of a civilization. This one puts in danger only a sum of accumulated articulations. That one reached the specific human itself in its matrix, And since the human reality is not so much in what is given than in what it gives itself, the sickness is not without fault. And the fault is not without sin.
There is a frightening mystery at the root of the culture itself. The book of Genesis raises a side of the veil. Temptation. Outburst of violence. Babel confused. Noah saved. Alliance promised…
Can schizoid human reality, cut from its true Hot source and from its authentic cold well, whose reserves of sense become exhausted, indefinitely resist entropy?
Lucidity? Our 'lucidity', today, would like to live 'only with what one knows'. But does one ever know something else than what one wants to know? In fact we know more than we believe. We know on bottom of driven back knowing.
It was believed that man, finally delivered of its mystery, would find his innocence. It was believed that man, finally returned, without illusions, to its pure immanence, would blossom like the most beautiful animal in the most beautiful zoological garden. It is only one strange evil which started to proliferate…
You cannot drive God back with impunity. Even less can you drive back repression itself without impunity. This sin against the Spirit is promised withdeath. Man is undoubtedly too tall to be offered to the omens of the Master thinkers of this time. The mystery of human depths, even barricaded, is too holy to be delivered to the traffickers of the temple.
Then who will save us? To begin with, you have to find clearness and to refuse the lie. There would not be repression if there were not awareness, writes Simone Weil. Repression is a bad conscience. The essence of the driven back tendencies is the lie. The essence of this lie is the repression which one is aware of. It is necessary to clarify the monsters which are in us, and not to be afraid to look them straight in the face.
