Household spaces crack, tension in the structures of culture increases. New images and meanings penetrate through pulsating holes in the structure of familiar reality. This process must be stopped and frozen. This process creates the need for new sacred weapons.
Invisible threats create the need for the production of symbolic weapons. When a society finds itself in a situation of emergency and the destruction of customary norms and social practices, it immediately begins to produce essentially religious methods of countering the invisible global threat. The Enlightenment project once again proves its complete failure, and the reality of the world is rebuilt according to new, much more irrational laws. In this world there is much more room for chthonic horror, general panic and the objects by which we seek to suppress our own fear.
