The World-Idea has been represented by diagrams (mandala and yantra). The World-Mind has been embodied in images and idols. These things can be and are used in religious worship and mystic meditation. The idol acts as a reminder to its devotee; he is not a fool to confuse the piece of stone with the power of God.
