Thoughts on Mystery. 1)Where there is mystery, it is generally suspected there must also be evil. 2)Secrecy is the element of all goodness; even virtue, even beauty is mysterious. 3)Although our intellect always longs for clarity and certainty, our nature often finds uncertainty fascinating. 4)Mystery has its own mysteries, and there are gods above gods. We have ours, they have theirs. That is what's known as infinity. 5)Mystery is not profoundness.
