Le Gros Bon Sens arrive en ville!

Le bon sens est la chose du monde la mieux partagée : car chacun pense en être si bien pourvu, que ceux même qui sont les plus difficiles à contenter en toute autre chose, n'ont point coutume d'en désirer plus qu'ils en ont. (Descartes, Discours de la méthode)

Viser la lune

Posted on | juillet 15, 2011 | 8 Comments

Alors qu’auparavant, nous marchions la tête haute, fixant la lune et les étoiles pour mieux nous orienter, voilà qu’aujourd’hui nous replions l’échine, tête basse, courbé vers le sol, éclairé seulement par l’éclat diffus de nos téléphones intelligents.

Réflexion passagère non dénuée de nostalgie, inspirée sans doute par la pleine lune d’été qui donne un éclat bleuâtre à la nuit montréalaise. Un ancien proverbe nous apprend que « le sage pointe la lune, l’idiot regarde le doigt ». Mais celui qui ne fait que regarder la lune ne voit pas plus les planètes, les étoiles et tous ces autres objets célestes que ni vous ni moi ne sommes maintenant à même de distinguer et d’identifier dans le ciel.

Nous avons perdu la richesse de la nuit. Celle d’identifier, de reconnaître, de nommer le spectacle diversifié au-dessus de nos têtes. Auparavant ces brins de lumière étaient suffisants pour mouvoir nos ancêtres au-delà des mers, vers des terres inconnues n’existant que dans leur imagination, malgré des monstres terrifiants mais tout aussi imaginaires. Aujourd’hui nous avons noyé ces éclats dans une luminosité tape-à-l’œil, ravageuse, racoleuse; pour avoir surpassé les étoiles nous nous croyons à l’égal des dieux.

La lune que le sage pointait du doigt est maintenant un terrain jeu, digne uniquement à devenir le réceptacle de drapeaux qui ne flotteront pas au vent. Les planètes que nous ne voyons plus comportent sans doute leur part d’inconnu, de mystères, de fantastique, tout comme les étoiles lointaines. Mais nous n’osons plus y rêver.

En les chassant de notre vue, nous les avons banni de notre imagination. Nous n’osons plus y aspirer réellement. Incapable de les reconnaître dans le ciel nocturne, nous n’envisageons pas plus de nous y rendre. Nos navettes sont mises au rencart; nos rêves
accumulent la poussière.

Désormais, à force de fixer le sol, nous n’attendons plus qu’une chute inévitable.
