What happens when mindless symbols of algorithmic AI encounter mindful performative rituals? I return to my criticisms of Habermas's secularising reading of Kierkegaard's ethics. Next, I lay out Habermas's claim that the sacred complex of ritual and myth contains the ur-origins of postmetaphysical thinking and reflective faith. If reflective faith shares with ritual same origins as does communicative interaction, how do we access these archaic ritual sources of human solidarity in the age of AI?
