You Got Me Hans!

The quote below in my post "The Sixth Sense" is from Hans Urs von Balthasar's The Glory of the Lord. Given the context of my post I came across another section that hit below the belt.

In order to read even a form within the world (in comparison to divine revelation), we must see something invisible as well, and we do in fact see it. In a flower, a certain interior reality opens its eye and reveals something beyond and more profound than a form which delights us by its proportion and colour. In the rhythm of the form of plants - from seed to full growth, from bud to fruit - there is manifested an essence, and to reduce the laws of this essence to mere utilitarian principles would be blasphemous.

Nice burn Hans! Ouch.
