The vertical living

At first is the cosmic life which, in its universal hierogamy, generates all the living ones. This original sacral drama is permanently celebrated by myth through time. The rite translates and brings up to date its infinite efficiency. It is the ‘Fascinosum’ of a vital force inexhaustibly active and effective, tirelessly victorious of degradation and death. It is the ‘Tremendum’ of a possible risk of exhaustion and of degradation caused by a possible excessiveness of man.

In the middle of the sacral drama of life stands man, a living being centered on difference. A microcosm connected to the macrocosm. Man is a sacred sacral maker. Man is the axis of value and creator of sense. He is an ad infinitum gaping chasm of a different world. Man is disproportion and however measure. He represents the first measurement of the cosmic sphere and its harmonious proportion. Figure of the world, man is an upright animal in every meaning of the word. Its upright station means and carries out sacral verticality. Man is the originating reference frame of sacral space and its sacral center.

In man life vibrates from its originating sacral fascinosum and tremendum. In sacral verticality is archaeologically played the drama of the antagonistic protagonists Eros and Thanatos. Here you find the great vertical difference between heaven and earth generating life through its embrace. You can also feel the great vertical difference between earth and hells generating death. This double fathering is articulated on the antagonistic powers of celestial spirits and telluric spirits, on forces of good and evil, of light and darkness…

Man, quantifying and measuring the world, is physically magic! Léonardo de Vinci registers it perfectly in the proportion of the square and the circle. From the time of Egyptian and Greek Antiquity the golden section gives the key of its harmony. And the `modulor' of Le Corbusier defines its postural dynamics. Even before engraving, sculpture or architecture appeared, the originating esthetics of the dance translated the rhythm of the world. Man, measure of all things… And disproportion however!

Man is symbol of the world, but also hieroglyph. What can be said of him and what he says can never be buckled in man. Always remains the inexpressible essential just babbling through  the symbol and the myth.

It is in the extreme tension of Sacral Verticality that man is born as a man. The sacred reality is properly crisis of childbirth of authentic humanity.
