Today aren't we feeling ourselves as 'sons of the same mother' rather than 'conspiring brothers'? Our nostalgias are sedentary, our security is city-dwelling and our certainty gathered behind a line of defense. Our topics are 'shells' rather than vast hostile spaces. Migration frightens us. Maternal archetypes make us feel save.
Harmony gathers us together, adventure divides us. We lost the taste to celebrate the epics of the Father. Our profound desire is dreaming of a return in the maternal womb. Sedentary people inhabited by the phobia of the nomads, we spend our time building protective enclosures and consolidating our defences.
Our tropisms draw us far from extremes towards the middle, towards harmony more than towards disproportion. That 'man passes man infinitely' is incomprehensible to the multitude. We flee the prophets. To the foolish adventure of spirit and heart we prefer the positive natural obviousnesses. We seek our reasons to live and to hope in company of scientists, administrators or ideologists.
The rule makes us feel safe, the exception terrorizes us. Vis-a-vis Abraham ready to sacrifice his son Isaac, Oedipus is so much less worrying! And the God-Nature, the God-Necessity, and even the God-Chance, are so much more reassuring than Yahwe of the Bible.
For our convenience and our utility we were monopolizing history. We thus planned time. We structured its duration. We tamed the events. We defused its provocations. We secured into continuity the urgency of the ruptures and relegated towards insignificance the paschal crossings.
In our reign of symmetries it remains only little space for the adventurers of hope. Our reflexes are for withdrawals. The epics of walking towards the Promised Land invests with a too long run and too remote a term to tempt the middle-class availabilities. The Kingdom to come does not make any more the weight in the balance of the immanent values. Parousia is unceasingly exchanged against arrivals of more immediate profitability. Eschatology opens too radically a too radical future for not traumatizing the mothered children.
In this continent of Utopia, the invitations to tender go to the manufacturers of the best of worlds and the insurers against all the risks. The building sites of the Ideal City are covered with demagogic slogans which conjugate in the present and the future the right for irresponsibility. 'One cares for you' is spread out everywhere in large capital letters. Only some furtive graffiti still say: 'You decide about your freedom'.
This world has to find reasons which must suffice for its obviousnesses, support its coherences and guarantee its lucidities, but to which it is forbidden to doubt oneself and, most of all, to venture elsewhere.
The ideal wants to be a sanitized bubble where reigns the metaphysic vacuum and from where religious concern and the thirst for the extreme significances are driven out. A bubble where dead is practically nonexistent. A bubble where the cries of suffering are smothered. A bubble where chastity yields to hygiene and fecundity to eugenism. A bubble which refuses the grace and the chances of unforeseen events. A bubble where the initiated and and enlightened ones eclipse prophets and saints. A bubble where the gnosis holds the place of faith, progress that of hope and a vague humanitarianism of charity…
Is there any space left, in our world, for the adventurers of eschatology?
