Reality transcends existence

The spiritual categories of being are the absolute, the infinite, and the eternal, while the intellectual categories of existence are the relative, the finite, and the temporal. It is impossible for the intellect which denies the reality of the absolute and its categories and can only have knowledge of the relative categories of existence to comprehend the immanent presence of absolute being within the confines of the physical universe. This spiritual presence necessarily appears as paradox to the rational intellect, which can neither apprehend any infinite data nor confirm any experiential knowledge of the absolute categories. The use of infinities and absolutes in scientific hypotheses and mathematical calculations prove to be either mere inventions of the fallen intellect intent upon denying a lack of understanding, or a subtle acknowledgment of the transcendent reality defined by the absolute categories.
