After the due thaumázein about the ability of certain cosmic brains present in the meeting on law, morals and religion whose proceedings are collected in this volume to transform physical vibrations into intellectual meanings, the three objects of the symposium law, morals and religion are studied synoptically by the author on two levels of facts and truths. Mention is made among the facts of law of the probable leading role in the formation of rules for the global human environment bereft of planetary legislators and judges of the law of doctrinal origin (Juristenrecht), already a primary source in the great traditional legal systems; while mention is made of the normative ideal of pleromatic law on the level of truths. Among the facts of morals, mention is made of the hegemony of possessive individualism; the tension between the identifying morals of cultural communities and the personal morals of their members; the relative systematic moral automatisms and problematic morals; and the explosion of special morals and personal morals. On the side of truths, the article stresses the irrelevance of God for ethics and criticises possessive individualism both from an anthropological and from a systemic standpoint. It appears to be possible to summarise the facts of religion with three formulae: secularisation; neo-fundamentalisms; the supermarket of the sacred. On the side of truths, the article ascertains the loss of explanatory-theoretical, thaumaturgic-practical and axiological value suffered by religions with the advent of modern realistic thought, approves an apophatic approach to the latter problems and proposes a non-reductive hypothesis of secular mysticism.
