Quick Note: While this post was inspired mainly by our discussion of Sayers' "Image of God" in Matters of the Mind, it has to do with the Music of Creation. I have nevertheless tagged it for its day, which was Creativity and Free Will I, since that is the day on which Sayers was assigned.
We have torn away the mental fancies to get at the reality beneath, only to find that the reality of that which is beneath is bound up with its potentiality of awakening these fancies. It is because the mind, the weaver of illusion, is also the only guarantor of reality that reality is always to be sought at the base of illusion.-SIR ARTHUR EDDINGTON: Nature of the Physical World.
