That would evacuate most of the significance from the symbol. You do not see this because your heart is closed to the contemplation of this mystery.
I think you are closed to the “mystery”. The temple veil was rent in twain, God does not want to remain a mystery. He poured out his spirit on the day of Pentecost, he no longer wanted to be estranged from men! Fanny Crosby, the blind famed hymn writer remained blind from 6 weeks old until her death and could never comtemplate your extolled religious imagery or contemplate “its mystery”...never the less “saw” most brilliantly when she came to know Christ; writing that her soul became “filled with a most celestial light”! That which you call “mystery” was that presence of Jesus Christ via the holy Spirit that dwelt in her!
Christ despaired of men who “had eyes but could not see!”. He even healed a blind man who saw the truth while others scoffed.
