Normal people have a separation between the sacred and the profane (the profane being the everyday, or mundane). It is this separation that allows identity and language to function. It functions because the scared preserves the essence, the numinous, the mysterious, the potentiality, while the profane utilizes principles, definitions, structure, boundaries, and limits. That is why the profane is every day, like a clock, and the sacred is exceptional, like an eclipse. The precedent allows discernment and the standard allows communicability (read: individuality and community).

If you see the whole of reality as totally sacred or totally profane, you have no boundaries of one sort or the other. If you lean on seeing everything as sacred, or you lean on seeing everything as profane, it is no matter because they both lend themselves to disfunction. The profane cannot replenish itself, and the sacred cannot manifest itself.
