Everything negative flows from the idea and primarily from the idea of the individual self which is a negative image of the soul’s absolute being invented by the intellect fallen from contemplation of the absolute reality of good and projected into a relative actuality of good and evil, constructed for millennia by a conspiracy of fallen souls attracted to the negative in existence and enamored of evil. Small wonder that the world is as it is. Fortunately evil is only relative! Nothing, the nothing of being which is spirit, is absolute, cannot be negated and annuls relativity. Ahem!!
We live in a world of relativity, an actuality limited by the boundaries of sensory apprehension, emotional response and rational thought. It is precisely religion that introduces the absolute into this relativity, not as idea but as transcendent reality. Religion instructs us that there is a reality beyond the actuality circumscribed by these boundaries. This reality is transcendent and absolute while existence is intellectual and relative. Existence is an objective invention of the human intellect that has fallen from a subjective contemplation of a reality that is spiritual and absolute. The rational intellect fails to distinguish between being and existence and denies the reality of the absolute, of spirit and of being. The absolute does not exist, that is to say that it is not confined within human intellectual existence. Absolute being is, an eternal, spiritual nothingness, infinite and absolute from which we emerged and to which we shall return. To realize that being, our own absolute being, we need religion which provides a dogma of faith in a transcendent reality. Whether we like it or not, whether we admit it or not, we are held captive in a world of both good and evil, of both positive and negative, and a world moreover where we are immersed in the negative which increases in power over us and where the good is apparently diminishing. To be redeemed from this world we need a moral discipline founded on the absolute principles which science cannot provide, but only religion.
The figurative darkness of absolute zero, the nothingness within which the material universe of relativity came into existence, is not negation. The rational mind however, since it exists, sees existence as primary and zero as negation. The contrary is true. The zero does not negate the one since the zero is primary, and the nothingness of absolute being cannot be negated by the material, relative universe precisely because it is absolute.
Modern philosophy descends into the nothingness feared and hated by the atheist existentialists, whereas to the spiritual consciousness nothingness is nothing to be feared. Absolute zero is in fact precisely the power of the absolute to abrogate and annul relativity, the entire material universe conceived by the fallen murderous intellect of killer man. The material universe emerged out of nothing and into nothing we shall return, into a nothingness that is spiritual, eternal, infinite and absolute, characterized by morality, love and peace.
