Transfiguration.  Those that suffer helplessly, those that dream confusedly, those that are entranced by things supernatural  these are the three divisions into which Raphael11 divided mankind. This is no longer how we see the world  and Raphael too would no longer be able to see it as he did: he would behold a new transfiguration.

11. Raphael: Raffaello Santi, or Sanzio (1483-1520): Italian painter, one of the greatest of the Italian Renaissance. Among his most famous paintings are the Sistine Madonna, the Marriage of the Virgin and the School of Athens.
