becoming and being

Since the fallen soul can no longer live in the reality of absolute being it enters into a relative actuality, an invented, intellectual existence in which it is constantly becoming and striving to be who it truly is in reality. This, of course, is not a possibility since the soul is an image of the absolute and therefore itself absolute and the ground of its existence is only relative. It is able merely to project a negative image of its being, the idea of an individual self, into the artificially invented actuality of civilization, where it is held captive, conditioned and deformed by that artificial and false environment, the city, from which there can be no escape without a faith which reintroduces the absolute, spiritual categories into the world of intellectual relativity, thereby redeeming the soul.
