Whence arises all that order and beauty we see in the world?
The unstable, by bringing order into chaos, by resolving disharmonies and centring upon the mid-point, thus setting a boundary to the multitude and focusing attention upon the cross, consciousness is reunited with the unconscious, the unconscious man is made one with his centre, and in this wise the goal of man’s salvation and exaltation is reached.

If statistical reality is the only one, then that is the sole authority. There is then only one condition, and since no contrary condition exists, judgment and decision are not only superfluous but impossible.

authority / condition / order / reality / statistics
You open the gates of the soul to let the dark flood of chaos flow into your order and meaning. If you marry the ordered to the chaos you produce the divine child, the supreme meaning beyond meaning and meaninglessness.
chaos / Meaning / meaninglessness / order / soul

We tell ourselves how lovely it would be, would it not, if there were a God who created the universe and benign Providence, a moral world order, and life beyond the grave, yet it is very evident, is it not, that all of this is the way we should inevitably wish it to be. And it would be even more remarkable if our poor, ignorant bondsman ancestors had managed to solve all these difficult cosmic questions.

The whole architecture of the notions of psychology… as differentiations of one sole and massive adhesion to being which is the flesh …There is no hierarchy of orders of layers or planes, there is dimensionality of every fact & facticity of every dimension.
“Hitler“, wrote Herman Rauschning in 1939, has a deep respect for the Catholic church and the Jesuit order, not because of their Christian doctrine, but because of the machinery they have elaborated and controlled, their hierarchical system, their extremely clever tactics, their knowledge of human nature and their wise use of human weaknesses in ruling over believers.
