“O Universo está certo, mas o Mundo está errado.”
«A non-religious man today ignores
what he considers sacred but,
in the structure of his consciousness,
could not be without the ideas
of being and the meaningful.
He may consider these purely human aspects
of the structure of consciousness.
What we see today is that man considers himself
to have nothing sacred, no god;
but still his life has a meaning,
because without it he could not live;
he would be in chaos.
He looks for being and
does not immediately call it being,
but meaning or goals;
he behaves in his existence
as if he had a kind of center.
He is going somewhere,
he is doing something.
We do not see anything religious here;
we just see man behaving as a human being.
But as a historian of religion,
I am not certain that there is nothing religious here. »
Mircea Eliade, absolutely great.
