Intuition and the Creation of a Better World

Smith, Huston

Short of a historical breakdown which would render routine ineffectual and force us to attend again to things that matter most, we wait for art; for metaphysicians who, imbued with that species of truth that is beauty in its mental mode, are (like Plato) concomitantly poets. By irradiating the human imagination that has atrophied in this kali yuga, this age of iron, such men might restore to it the supple, winged condition it requires if it is to come within light-years of Truth. They might return to our inner eye–almost, one might say, to our sense of touch–ontological spaces we have forgotten exist, landscapes crowded with presences the knowing of which can turn men into saints.

Huston Smith, Forgotten Truth, The Common Vision of the World's Religions, p. 36
