      The people of Athens is a symbol not less than the Doric temple, the Englishman not less than modern physics. Struggles of vassals amongst themselves and against overlord. Great creations of the newly-awakened dream-heavy soul. Eventually rationalism spreads throughout the Culture and becomes the dominant school of thought.

      The two World Wars weakened the European powers to such extent that many people in the colonies strove for independence, often inspired by nationalistic movements. Mannerism, a reaction against the idealist perfection of Classicism, employed distortion of light and spatial frameworks in order to emphasise the emotional content of a painting and the emotions of the painter. Arno Rune Berg noted in his book Witches, Demons and Fertility a number of "ordinary" elements that were cited in descriptions of the witches' Sabbath. Techniques characteristic of Renaissance art include the use of proportion and linear perspective ; foreshorteningto create an illusion of depth; sfumatoa technique of softening of sharp outlines by subtle blending of tones to give the illusion of depth or three-dimensionality; and chiaroscurothe effect of using a strong contrast between light and dark to give the illusion of depth or three-dimensionality. Spengler has a low opinion of Civilizations, even those that engaged in significant expansion, because that expansion was not actual growth. Gregorian Chant evolves as a musical form and we hear polyphony becoming the great Western musical form.

      Religion Nearly every known religion is practiced in the United States, which was founded on the basis of religious freedom. Spengler also compares the "world- city " and - province as concepts analogous to Civilization and Culture respectively. According to Murray, the local covens consisted of thirteen members: twelve ordinary men and women, and an officer. Struggles of vassals amongst themselves and against overlord.
