Una civiltà siffatta ci ha portati a perdere quella sensibilità in grado di farci sperimentare l’interiorità del mondo, coglierne l. a. risonanza molteplice di un organismo molteplice e animato, facendoci ripiegare su noi stessi, esiliati e autocentrati, convinti di poter disporre a nostro piacimento di qualsiasi manifestazione del reale: perdere il contatto con il mondo significa in step with l’uomo non rendersi conto di appartenere a questo stesso ambiente, in un movimento autodistruttivo. L’arte e los angeles religione, così importanti in line with le nostre vite, possono condurci a riscoprire il valore salvifico dell’immaginazione creatrice.
