Treating this sort of question as settled before it 22 Introduction: Restoring the Wonder of a Child really is risks being unable to see any meaning. Meaninglessness is the climate of self-destruction. Tradition Our time has not been friendly to receiving meaning as a gift. It would make its own, but since one’s own meaning is by definition different from those of others, this leads to a fissiparous and fragmented society where community is replaced by loneliness and— ultimately—persuasion by violence.

There are only quantities, there is mere measurement. There are fragments without any wholes, and the very void in which they are supposed to exist expresses how devoid these are of color and savor. The manipulative meaning-draining way of looking that this philosophy spawned has perhaps an apt nemesis in a world dominated by currency no longer linked to gold—a currency which goes on being “quantitatively eased” until it is on the brink of being eased out of any value. 16 Introduction: Restoring the Wonder of a Child Galileo, Violence, and Rape The limited kind of seeing that registers as real only what can be measured mathematically and according to preconceived ideas is not content simply to specialize in what can be analyzed in this way: it seeks (by placing them off-limits) to force out other kinds of knowledge—that is, the sort that a contemplative spirit will receive.

Light in a sense transcends space as well as time. It consists, modern physics tells us, entirely of energy rather than mass. Of everything that is in creation, it is among the least material. In this too it speaks of God. “God is a Spirit,” says the gospel; there is nothing of matter in Him. “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all,” says the first letter of Saint John. The “darkness” corresponds to what is unlike light: that which is wearied by time and weighed down by matter. A Glory Passed Away There is a proverbial Russian phrase—“clear as God’s daylight”— that expresses what an obvious sign of God’s presence light is, and yet the heart in our age seems insensitive to it.
