"even when [people] come to feel [the immanent frame] as obviously supporting closure, this doesn't constitute a valid argument. The sense of 'obvious' closure [against transcendence] is not a perception of rational grounding, but an illusion of . . . 'spin'. . . . [W]hile the norms and practices of the immanent frame may incline to closure, this neither decides the effect that living within the frame in fact will have on us, nor even less does it justify the closed take."
