Form and Character

One graduates from form towards character

Character can take form and slowly give it character
But it costs the character to do this

Form is often hostile to being given character
As it’s hard work developing character

Character can fall back into form
Especially when interacting with form

Something that lacks sufficient character, more of which is still form, tends to lean in one direction. That with character tends to lean in the other direction.

Developing character is what brings one closer to the absolute

Sensuality is peak form, as are flashy objects, worshipping idols, etc

God is peak character (e.g. Gospels, Bach, Newton, Leonardo, Saints, Cathedrals)

To fall is to get stuck on form and go down with it
