„Such major organizations of thought may be necessary in science as much as in religion.“

—  Julian Huxley English biologist, philosopher, author 1887 - 1975

The New Divinity (1964)
Contexto: Eventually the old ideas will no longer serve, the old ideological framework can no longer be tinkered up to bear the weight of the facts, and a radical reconstruction becomes necessary, leading eventually to the emergence of a quite new organisation of thought and belief, just as the emergence of new types of bodily organization was necessary to achieve biological advance. Such major organizations of thought may be necessary in science as much as in religion. The classical example, of course, was the re-patterning of cosmological thought which demoted the earth from its central position and led to the replacement of the geocentric pattern of thought by a heliocentric one. I believe that an equally drastic reorganization of our pattern of religious thought is now becoming necessary, from a god-centered to an evolutionary-centered pattern.

„Science and mathematics
Run parallel to reality, they symbolize it, they squint at it,
They never touch it“

—  Robinson Jeffers American poet 1887 - 1962

"The Silent Shepherds" (1958)
Contexto: Science and mathematics
Run parallel to reality, they symbolize it, they squint at it,
They never touch it: consider what an explosion
Would rock the bones of men into little white fragments and unsky the world
If any mind for a moment touch truth.

„To organize Anarchy, is the problem which the revolutionists have and will eternally have to resolve.“

—  Albert Pike, livro Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry

Ch. XXXII : Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret
Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry (1871)
Contexto: To organize Anarchy, is the problem which the revolutionists have and will eternally have to resolve. It is the rock of Sisyphus that will always fall back upon them. To exist a single instant, they are and always will be by fatality reduced to improvise a despotism without other reason of existence than necessity, and which, consequently, is violent and blind as Necessity. We escape from the harmonious monarchy of Reason, only to fall under the irregular dictatorship of Folly.
Sometimes superstitious enthusiasms, sometimes the miserable calculations of the materialist instinct have led astray the nations, and God at last urges the world on toward believing Reason and reasonable Beliefs.
We have had prophets enough without philosophy, and philosophers without religion; the blind believers and the skeptics resemble each other, and are as far the one as the other from the eternal salvation.
