Many people across the ages had been “groping” for some god, Paul asserted. He took note that every form and object of worship, from the near fringes of the God of Israel to downright pagan idolatry, was part of the same human disease: our search for an invisible person or force who can make sense of life, provide direction, offer strength, distribute comfort.

They also frequently happen when we are approaching peak/ breakthrough stages in our artistic development.
