LAYERING
Many layers of complexity cover both the integrity of ordinary people and the dissembling of cowards. In the most physical example, our relatively smooth skin hides a wondrously ordered intricacy within, from vessels to organs down to the “bare bones” of the framework. We then add cultural overlays, both physical and psychological, apon this psychological barrier – by clothing our physical nakedness (an image with deep roots in Genesis), and by masking our raw emotions with conventions of civility and decorum.
We cannot live (and society cannot function) without these covers, but we also bemoan the sequestering of a supposedly true self. Our metaphors for ‘stripping away’ either celebrate a raw reality or castigate an exposed corruption. " Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither" JOB. But the belly of the beast also lies under the skin of the saint.
