Existence, the sensually apprehended and intellectually conceived four dimensional space/time continuum, can be defined as a physical universe of relativity while the true vacuum of the absolute void into which this universe is expanding is a spiritually transcendent presence that cannot be sensually apprehended or intellectually known. The human conception of the relative universe of existence is striving to expand into the absolute presence of being, in order to comprehend an ultimate reality in an intellectual, unified theory and become absolute, the finite desiring to become infinite, the temporal to become eternal. This, of course, can never be achieved.
Reality is transcendent to every actuality, as the absolute is transcendent to existence. Reality is spiritual, encompassing the void and the physical universe within the void. The universe is a universe of relativity in which the only presence of the absolute is the presence of the void at the center of each living being. Within the relative actualities there can be no absolutes. These relative actualities are limited by the boundaries of rational thought, and it is precisely faith that introduces the absolute into the actual universe, not as idea but as transcendent reality. Faith instructs us that there is a reality beyond the actuality of intellectual existence. This reality is transcendent and absolute while existence is intellectual and relative.
The idea is not infinite. If it were infinite it would not be possible. There are no infinite possibilities. The possibilities imaged in the idea are finite and cannot grasp what is real or distinguish between the real and the actual. Existence, the actualized possibility, is only a negative image of a reality which cannot be known by those reflective processes of rational thought that discover the idea, the ground of possibility. The actualities in which we each exist, the actualized possibilities, are only related coincidentally and impartially to the infinite reality of being.
►Life did not come into being. It did not become. It simply is, and always has been. It neither came into being, nor can it cease from being. It is eternal and forever. Let life on earth therefore be a preparation for eternal life. Let death be considered a delusion of the fallen intellect, fallen, that is, from subjective contemplation of the absolute and eternal principles into objective reflection on the relativity of existence, the realm ruled by death.
I am hoping to utilize this platform to communicate my profound view of the world and of life as it is expressed in my book, “The Reality of Being.” Few people in my experience are aware of the depth of the problems confronting all forms of life on earth which have their roots in human error. Until a significant number of human beings take that responsibility which involves an existential acknowledgement of guilt can there be any movement towards a remedy of the human situation, fraught with injustice.
