That is, to the darkened mind it did not mean nothing . . .

To them it was not for nothing that a man went into a woman in private and uncovered her and knew ecstasy in the experience of her being. This was simply a case in point of what was True anyway -- that there is a mystery of being not to be thrown open to all, and that the right knowledge of another being is ecstatic, and that what appears under these carnal forms is, in fact, the image of what is actually True.

-- Thomas Howard, writing of the "dark ages" in, Chance or the Dance?
