Matthew Arnold made the beautiful and true observation that: "The Greeks worshipped the holiness of beauty; the Jews found beauty in holiness".

It can similarly be said that the Greek philosophers worshipped the holiness of truth; the Jewish sages found truth in holiness alone.

An exquisite solution to a mathematical problem, a glorious symphony, a breathtaking work of art or of poetry are all part and parcel of "the world of falsehood." They can carry us to "the world of truth," if we permit them to enjoin us, and them with the greatness or our Creator and the potential of our Higher Selves to bring holiness into the world.

To the Jewish Mind, if something can be perceived as holy, then it is by definition both beautiful and true. And if cannot be perceived as holy, than it can neither be beautiful, nor true.
