Here he focuses on the distinctions between physical light and many forms of spiritual light, including magical light, Egyptian light, and divine light. He reflects on the multiple meanings of the notion of light entrapped within matter or flesh. He argues that scientism, to the extent that it denies the realities of the spirit, is a dark cultural force. He also points out the high value that spiritual traditions place upon darkness.
