Between a post-Socratic West which only believes in its mechanical powers over Matter, and a post-Vedic Asia which only believes in its "liberation" from Matter, Sri Aurobindo embodies a second great Turning Point of our human des-tiny, perhaps its last turning point, when we must find again our own "divine powers over Matter," as the Vedas already sang, our own immortal reality in this Matter, or perish of our own mechanical impotence. The whole cosmogony of the world unfolds, as in a Greek tragedy, but it is the Earth that must break out of its walls, or meet with defeat once more, like Antigone.
