What does "profoundly spiritual" mean? Is this something desirable in a
human being? Does being profoundly spiritual impute one is more
compassionate (than one who is not profoundly spiritual)? If that is not
the case, then what is the use of being profoundly spiritual? Especially
because to be profoundly spiritual is to be intellectually compromised?
