Modernity is left-hemispheric. Modernity is at odds with the Catholic Church (and traditional Christianity in general). It’s not a coincidence. This group explores how the Hemisphere Hypothesis complements Catholicism and how Catholicism complements the Hemisphere Hypothesis.

This is an interesting note. For one, I appreciate its introduction. Thank you, Eric.
However, because the true Word of Christ (so to speak), and/or as much to such a peace-abiding Abrahamic way, may have always been at dual odds with a Byzantine/Roman/Pagan way—which, at least by the Edict of Thessalonica (or about 90 years after the Byzantine government sanctioned the murder of St. George per stratagem for stemming the spread of such Abrahamic progression through said Word of Christ — which such Byzantines had worked to quash for those 300 years – about – since the Romans did in Christ/Yeshua)—because it took so long for such Word of Christ to be converted into a metaphysical tool for aiding the Byzantine Empire’s militant, expansionary way (which seems opposite to a peace-abiding credo; but more appears of a left hemispheric tilt), not sure the Church was even born ‘tilting right’ (so to speak) … although surely many within the Church, over time, have worked oppositely.
Hence, while not looking to get too hair-splitting in the semantical, perhaps such definitions of ‘modernity’ versus ‘traditional’ needs more to be defined per a structure of individuation rather than overall societal broad-strokes granted a measure of credence to the term Mental Universe — whereby as much lends to the notion that a universe exists per each mind, given: such “unimaginable complexity per each human psyche” (at least according to Carl Jung); that the physical universe is understood to respectively cease to be perceived as is whence the brain dies (given the physical universe is perceived through such filtering dynamic to a brain); that when people relate with one another it can seem as if universes are colliding; and so forth.
