Galileo examined the stars at night,
he used his telescope. What a sight!

His priest refused to look. Alert to heresy,
he was terrified of what he might see.
Another clerihew, this one from the Scientific Revolution!

This. Is truth!
"Terrified of what he might see" perfectly put Alec, that fear.

It is about fear, I think. Even a little fear can be too much, sometimes.

A man gathers knowledge and art in his shell,
denying for a time his terror of Hell!

The artist defies his patron's wishes,
no rose colored-glasses for the loaves and the fishes!

^Reminds me of some of your bio works of artists, xD

I thought it'd be fun to respond this way.
