He said to her one night: "You see, Justine, I believe that Gods are men and men are Gods; they intrude on each other's lives, trying to express themselves through each other - hence such apparent confusion in our states of mind, our intimations of powers within or beyond us... And then (listen) I think that very few people realize that sex is a psychic and not a physical act. The clumsy coupling of human beings is simply a biological paraphrase of this truth - a primitive method of introducing minds to each other, engaging them. But most people are stuck in the physical aspect, unaware of the poetic rapport which it so clumsily tries to teach.
