the principles of the divine
"It has yet to be proven that intelligence has any survival value."
-Arthur C Clarke
That might be what does make Intelligence of *any* value at all--just as it happens with Beauty and Grace-: its suspected unnecessariness, its elusive ornamental condition which finds no reason d'être other than... Being. (*)
Everything divine is but a tautology of sorts... and viceversa. Ain´t it? =)
Like Borges said and I quoted before: -"This imminence of a revelation which does not occur is, perhaps, the aesthetic phenomenon."
(*) I am tempted to add "Love" to the list, but I won´t as I deem love as of value to our species survival.
