those who live solely according to the senses…

Those who animal-like live solely according to the senses make the Logos flesh for themselves in a dangerous way: they misuse God’s creation in order to indulge the passions.

They do not understand the principle of that wisdom which is revealed to all; that we should know and praise God through His creation and that by means of the visible world we should understand whence we came, what we are, for what purpose we were made and where we are going.

On the contrary, they travel through this present age in darkness, fumbling with both hands merely their ignorance of God.

~St Maximos the Confessor
