St paul writes in his second letter to the communion in Corinth, that: ”the letter kills, but the spirit makes alive”.
Through centuries mankind has got explanations in with spoons by their teachers, their authorities, their books, their saints.
Mankind say: ”Tell us everything – what is there beyond the hills and the mountains and the earth?”, and they are satisfied with their explanations, what means that they live of words, the word is their foundation of life, and therefore their existence is superficial and empty.
They are the living dead.
They have lived in what has been told them, either guided to it by their inclinations and their desire, or forced to accept it by circumstances and environment.
They are a result of all kinds of influences and there is nothing new in them, nothing, which they themselves have discovered, nothing original, innocent, clear.
It is the eternal recurrence of the same.
