The easiest intellectual categorization that can be made is surely that between absolute and relative, between being and non-being. To the intellect, as to the senses, being is nothing. Being is precisely that nothingness within which the universe emerged and into which it is expanding. The material universe, the actuality of existence, is the attempt to negate the reality of being which, however, is absolute and cannot be negated by relativity. Relativity is therefore confined within the expanding universe where being enters into a relationship, a conflict, with non-being. Being is not the negative in existence! Non-being, the intellectual relationship of the individual soul with relativity, is the negative in existence.
