call it, that adds perspective to any understanding. questions are good
in that they allow for growth. i assume that if one was raised in a
christian atmosphere, this thinking would seem at odds with what one was
raised to "believe". in fact, gnosticism is at odds with "catholic"
(read universal) orthodoxy.
"The artist may use any form which his expression demands;
for his inner impulse must find suitable expression." Kandinsky
