1. GENERIC MODES OF RELIGIOUS SENSIBILITY. Humanism is the religion of the id, or womb; nonconformism the religion of the intellect, or brain; fundamentalism the religion of the soul, or heart; transcendentalism the religion of the spirit, or lungs.
2. NONCONFORMIST INTELLECTUALITY. Christianity is essentially a nonconformist religion, since centred in Christ Who, as the Son of Man, aptly epitomizes purgatorial intellectuality. Yet the intellect is divisible between thinking, writing, reading, and speaking, the four forms or modes of its presentation, two of which are private (and therefore properly Christian), the other two of which are public (and comparatively Heathen). Thus there are four basic kinds of nonconformism, each of which corresponds to the modal subdivisions of intellectuality. There is the Catholic nonconformism of the thought word; the Puritan nonconformism of the written word; the Dissenter nonconformism of the read word; and the Anglican nonconformism of the spoken word. Only the written word, corresponding in its literary introversion to the epistolary nature of the New Testament, correlates with the Christian intellect per se, the thought word being, in its philosophical introversion, quasi-spiritual, or orientated, through prayer, towards the Holy Ghost; the read word being, in its poetic extroversion, quasi-soulful, or orientated, through the Old Testament, towards the Father/Jehovah; and the spoken word being, in its dramatic extroversion, quasi-sensual, or orientated, through responsive chanting, etc., towards the Mother. However, even the Holy Ghost, the Father, and the Mother do not square with the per se modes of transcendentalism, fundamentalism, or humanism, but are the nearest things to them within the framework, necessarily purgatorial, of Christianity.
3. STANDINGS OF THE ALTERNATIVE MODES OF RELIGIOUS SENSIBILITY. Humanism is no more Christian than fundamentalism or transcendentalism. Humanism is Heathen, fundamentalism Superheathen (or Heathen from a noumenal standpoint), and transcendentalism Superchristian (or Christian from a noumenal standpoint). Humanism is about the World per se, fundamentalism about Hell per se, and transcendentalism about Heaven per se. A pagan Goddess like Venus is much more genuinely humanist than the Mother, just as Allah is much more genuinely fundamentalist than the Father, and, if you will, the Holy Spirit of Heaven much more genuinely transcendentalist than the Holy Ghost. The Mother, the Father, and the Holy Ghost always exist in relation to the Son. By contrast, these other and more genuine manifestations of humanism, fundamentalism, and transcendentalism are completely independent of such a purgatorial and intellectual cynosure. In fact, one could say that whereas there is something fundamentally lunar about Christianity, or nonconformism, the other kinds of religious sensibility would have more in common with the Earth, Venus, and Saturn, respectively, than with the Moon as such.
