"......that the sanctity of the Temple is protected from all terrestrian corruption, and that because of the fact that the architectural plan of the Temple is the work of the gods, and consequently is in the vicinity of the gods, in Heaven.
 
The transcendant models of the Temples benefit from a spiritual, uncorrupted and celestial existence. By means of the divine grace man has access to the fulgurant vision of these models, and he then dedicates himself  to reproduce them on earth."

"Essential for something to be called a religious activity is its capacity to allow the participant to acknowledge that there is something superior to himself which he cannot explain and whose hold he cannot resist."
