Everything is holy

Oh, but it's an effort to think through the implications of that statement! It's because there's a hidden bias in our perception of what holy means, as if it's a synonym for elite, or elevated, and how (we say) can everything possibly be equally elite? But in fact holy is a kind of text, or context, in the sense that il y a rien d'hors-saint. Oh but it's an effort to fit one's mind into that notion!
