Deconstructing False Dichotomies

The critique of digital social networks as something other than or contrary to the real physical world is symptomatic of a culture that often divides the world in a binary way, as a series of dichotomies between the sacred and secular, believer and non-believer, spiritual and mundane—to which we can also add digital and physical—that distort our reading of our contemporary situation.

Life in the Digital Cathedral begins by deconstructing these false dichotomies and approaching the world in a holistic way by finding sacred space embedded in the secular, acknowledging the blurred line between believers and Nones, and recognizing that the mundane is infused with the spiritually sublime.
