Ownness [eigenheit] includes in itself everything own... But ownness has not any alien standard either, as it is not in any sense an idea like freedom, morality, humanity, and the like. It is only a description of the - owner.
I found this quote in an Economist article from last year titled "Christianity reborn: A century after its birth Pentecostalism is redrawing the religious map of the world and undermining the notion that modernity is secular":"A Pentecostal service is an unforgettable experience, part religious service, part spectacle, part rock 'n' roll rave. ... Harvey Cox, a professor at Harvard, points to two things that have put wind into the movement's sails. One is the fact that it reconnects people with primitive religion: it taps into a deep substratum of primal spirituality, filling the 'ecstasy deficit' left by cooler religions. The movement's emphasis on experience rather than doctrine gives it a remarkable ability to absorb other faiths, from spirit possession in the Caribbean to ancestor worship in Africa, from folk healing in Brazil to shamanism in Korea. As the Pentecostals say, 'the man with an experience is never at the mercy of the man with a doctrine.'"
Very appropriate article.Also, I managed to find a translation of the lyrics. Too bad we can't get a phonetic transcription of the Swedish.I....started a fire for youAnd now the whole forest is on fireNow....I know what you are going to sayAnd it feels just like the first timeCome....let's show them that it's us twoBut everyone already knowsOut....you run away with meYeah can you hear them singing?*seizure* As if....everything was predeterminedAs the earth revolving around the sunWho....would have been able to take my placeHe simply doesn't existThey....talk of something wonderfulI'm there to tell the storyLarge....larger than I ever imaginedThe inside of my head is spinning
