Allen, while I still think that your emphasise on man's lowest points is a cliché, Fred's Art is not a sermon on the mount is even more so a cliché. I'd say that's exactly what Art is, something to do with human morality (and what an A.I. can't possibly grasp). Fred used Warhol's art as a counter example. Never mind that Warhol happened be an artist who considered himself to be very religious. Art and Religion seem cosmologically intertwined in terms of their symbology. For a psychological reading on the Bible, Jordan Peterson's lectures on The Psychological Significance of the Biblical Stories are a great resource. Any comprehensive view of art wouldn't be one that views art as being unconnected to all of this.
