The remains of an ancient wisdom lie all around us in the names of days of the week and the months of the year, in the arrangement of the pip in an apple and in the strangeness of mistletoe, in music, in the stories we tell our children and in the design of many public buildings and statues and in our greatest art and literature. If we can’t see this ancient wisdom, it is because we have been conditioned not to. We have been bewitched by materialism.
