Owen Barfield Quote of the Day (11/12/12)

[T]he incarnation of Christ in a human body, and subsequently in the "aura" of the earth, was the solution in fact of that divorce between a subjective and an objective world which had only recently arisen in human experience. . . . In the last great period of civilisation a question stood before the whole earth—the question whether it should henceforth have a meaning. And the question was answered by the deed of God, who brought meaning to the earth from the Sun. —Owen Barfield (Romanticism Comes of Age 102)
