In the sphere of material things giving means being rich. No he who has much, but he who gives much. […] He gives of himself, of the most precious he has, he gives of his life […] he gives him of that which is alive in him: he gives him of his knowledge, of his humour, of his sadness – of all expressions and manifestations of that which is alive in him.’*
The English word profanity comes from pro (before) and fanum (temple), that is, outside the temple”.**
Let us go in: present continuous.
Here, to be profane means to remain outside the house of human connection – to be separate, insular.
Introfanity, then, is to enter. Intrafanity would mean we are within the house, but we’re not there yet. We continue on a journey as individuals, societies, races and nations, each day exploring how we can share ourselves with others and have others share themselves with us.
