only Supernaturalists really see Nature

The Englishness of English is audible only to those who know some other language as well. In the same way for the same reason, only Supernaturalists really see Nature. You must go a little away from her, and then turn around, and look back. Then at last the true landscape will become visible. You must have tasted, however briefly, the pure water from beyond the world before you can be distinctly conscious of the hot, salty tang of Nature's current. C.S. Lewis, Miracles
Another quote that is related to this idea of perspective which helps see the true reality of things is when G.K. Chesterton said:
The Catholic Church is the only thing which saves a man from the degrading slavery of being a child of his age. Link

How is this related to Catholic Apologetics?

We have been given data that changes the perspective of everything. That data is Christ who makes all things new.
