In his newest masterpiece “The Matter with Things”, McGilchrist writes about the approach to the apprehension of something transcendent, or Divine:
“What the term ‘G-d’ requires of us is not a set of propositions about what cannot be known, but a disposition towards what must be recognised as beyond human comprehension.”
A similar argument is made by Dante on the beach of the Island of Mount Purgatory. The first and crucial key to learning and growing – is the Reed of Humility. And the “washing” of the face.
