The minuet, the game of tennis, the heroic couplet, the concept of form as the imposing of rules and the establishing of regularities, the theories of civilization, race, and progress, the performances in sciences and arts to rationalize the universe, to secure balance and class—all these are a tribal magic against a real threat of upset and things not keeping their place.
