There are at the present time two great nations in the world, which started from different points, but seem to tend towards the same end. I allude to the Russians and the Americans. Both of them have grown up unnoticed; and whilst the attention of mankind was directed elsewhere, they have suddenly placed themselves in the front rank among the nations, and the world learned their existence and their greatness at almost the same time. All other nations seem to have nearly reached their natural limits, and they have only to maintain their power; but these are still in the act of growth. All the others have stopped, or continue to advance with extreme difficulty; these alone are proceeding with ease and celerity along a path to which no limit can be perceived. The American struggles against the obstacles which nature opposes to him; the adversaries of the Russian are men. The former combats the wilderness and savage life; the latter, civilization with all its arms. The conquests of the American are therefore gained with the ploughshare; those of the Russian by the sword. The Anglo-American relies upon personal interest to accomplish his ends, and gives free scope to the unguided strength and common sense of the people; the Russian centres all the authority of society in a single arm. The principal instrument of the former is freedom; of the latter, servitude. Their starting-point is different, and their courses are not the same; yet each of them seems marked out by the will of Heaven to sway the destinies of half the globe.

Alexis de Tocqueville

The differences between religions are reflected very clearly in the different forms of sacred art: compared with Gothic art, above all in its 'flamboyant' style, Islamic art is contemplative rather than volitive: it is 'intellectual' and not 'dramatic', and it opposes the cold beauty of geometrical design to the mystical heroism of cathedrals. Islam is the perspective of 'omnipresence' ('God is everywhere'), which coincides with that of 'simultaneity' ('Truth has always been'); it aims at avoiding any 'particularization' or 'condensation', any 'unique fact' in time and space, although as a religion it necessarily includes an aspect of 'unique fact', without which it would be ineffective or even absurd. In other words Islam aims at what is 'everywhere center', and this is why, symbolically speaking, it replaces the cross with the cube or the woven fabric: it 'decentralizes' and 'universalizes' to the greatest possible extent, in the realm of art as in that of doctrine; it is opposed to any individualist mode and hence to any 'personalist' mysticism. To express ourselves in geometrical terms, we could say that a point which seeks to be unique, and which thus becomes an absolute center, appears to Islam-in art as in theology-as a usurpation of the divine absoluteness and therefore as an 'association' (shirk); there is only one single center, God, whence the prohibition against 'centralizing' images, especially statues; even the Prophet, the human center of the tradition, has no right to a 'Christic uniqueness' and is 'decentralized' by the series of other Prophets; the same is true of Islam-or the Koran-which is similarly integrated in a universal 'fabric' and a cosmic 'rhythm', having been preceded by other religions-or other 'Books'-which it merely restores. The Kaaba, center of the Muslim world, becomes space as soon as one is inside the building: the ritual direction of prayer is then projected toward the four cardinal points. If Christianity is like a central fire, Islam on the contrary resembles a blanket of snow, at once unifying and leveling and having its center everywhere.
