The Correspondence of Pot Holes

April 13, 2017 § Leave a comment

As I was reading the other day I came across this passage:

Falsities are called ‘pits’ on account of the filthy water these contain (AC 1688)

Immediately pot holes popped into my mind. Pot holes also hold filthy waters, and so would correspond to falsities. 
Pot holes also damage cars, just as pits can damage horses and carriages. Horses are a means of transportation and correspond to the understanding. I suspect that cars also correspond to the understanding.  There is, however, a difference between horses and cars. Horses are natural creations of the Lord and cars are artificial creations of man. So while horses can correspond to Divinely inspired intelligence, cars would correspond to human intelligence.
