There's a struggle between the previously creative but now outworn sensate order and the new emerging creative idealistic forces in all fields of social and cultural life.
Every important aspect of western social life is in crisis. Its body and mind are ill.
We are between two epochs: the dying sensate culture of a magnificient yesterday, and the coming idealistic culture of a creative tomorrow.
The rays of sun still illuminate the glory of the passing epoch.
But the light is fading, and in the deepening shadows it becomes more and more difficult to see clearly in the confusion of twilight.
The night of the transitory period stands before us, with its nightmares, shadows and horrors.
Beyond it the dawn of a great culture is waiting to greet the men of the future.
