The soul of each man and woman may be defined as a single moment of the eternal consciousness of the void, the spiritual void of absolute being which appeared in the first atom of physical matter, a conscious moment, furthermore, that can freely choose to be determined spiritually or materially, as being or as existing, as soul or as self, as a moment of eternity or as a moment of time. When the soul moves to express its self as a moment of time it falls from being into existing, from unity into duality, from absolute into relative, from the infinitude of the spiritual void into the finitude of the material universe. When will it end?
The absolute is nothing, the infinite void, and the void is the only absolute. The void is spirit, immaterial, the source and being of every living entity within the material universe. The only infinite possibility within the universe is the possibility for human consciousness to grasp the infinite void. To be conscious of being nothing is the highest realization of consciousness, the highest achievement of human life.
Tomorrow is another day! They say! But it is so only relatively. We measure everything according to local observation from the earth we inhabit, which is spinning on its axis orbiting a star which is itself orbiting within one of an uncountable number of galaxies. We measure and we collectively name objects, bringing them into a common intellectual domain, an illusion of objectivity. Yet subjectively tomorrow is the same day, the one day in which we all live transcendently, together in a unity it is foolish to deny. Perhaps we are here, within this universe, to discover our unity.
We apparently live in an expanding material universe within which everything is conceived as relative by the rational, human mind, a universe that began with the first appearance of space and time. Since this universe of relativity had a beginning it must also have an ending. Before the beginning there was nothing and after the end there will also be nothing. It is within this nothing, this void, that the physical universe is expanding its space and time. Viewed from within the universe of relativity the absolute is nothing, it does not exist, it simply is, inconceivable to the rational, human mind. Faith informs us that the void is spiritual; absolute, infinite and eternal, while the rational, human mind informs us that the physical universe is relative, finite and temporal. Only the relative universe exists, forming space and time, and it came into existence at its beginning within the absolute void, within a true vacuum in which there is not even a presentiment of materialism. The spiritual void is the ultimate reality and existence is not reality but a delusion of the rational, human mind.
Existence is not being. Existence, the field of relativity, only exists within the human intellect, discovered when the conscious mind moves from an immediate perception of the world as unity into a reflective cognizance of the world as a duality. Everything within existence is given a name and it is precisely the naming of things that calls them into intellectual existence. Existence is an invention of the objective human intellect that has fallen from a subjective contemplation of a reality that is spiritual and absolute. The soul falls from an immediate subjectivity to the absolute categories of being into a reflective perception of the relative categories of existence, from positive into positive and negative, from good into good and evil and from innocence into innocence and guilt. The reflective intellect fails to distinguish between reality and existence and, rejecting the void which cannot be experienced or thought, denies the reality of the absolute and of spiritual being. G-d does not exist, which is to say that G-d does not inhabit human intellectual existence. Absolute being simply is, eternal, infinite and absolute and to actualize that being we need 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 duality, of both good and evil, of both positive and negative, of both attraction and repulsion and a world, moreover, where the negative appears to be increasing in power and the good diminishing. To be redeemed from that world each human being needs a moral discipline founded on absolute principles. Science cannot give that discipline, but only faith.
All anxiety is anxiety about nothing, the absolute nothingness of the void, the spiritual presence at the core of every living being. Filling this void with sensual baggage distracts us from its reality and places us within the illusion of relativity, the physical universe of time and space. Anxiety leads to despair, the condition of the soul that has lost its connection with its true being, and despair leads to death, the ultimate expression of the negative in existence.
The void, which is the ground of each human soul, is the same void within which the physical universe is expanding, an infinite, spiritual, emptiness. The soul which is consciously grounded in this emptiness is at one with its own transcendent being, absolute being. On the other hand, the soul which spurns the spiritual void and seeks fulfillment within the universe loses its connection to the eternal and wastes its lifetime filling the void at the center of its being with things of only relative value.
Absolute zero is positive, primal spiritual being. The one, as in universe, is negative and cannot negate the absolute since it’s existence is relative to it and dependent upon it. To create the illusion of relativity absolute zero therefore consciously enters into a relationship with the negative one within the infinite void of its own spiritual being, thus creating the finite material universe. This manifestation of absolute zero within the universe of relativity so formed is precisely life and being, which confronts the physicality of the material universe by standing over against it. Relativity may be defined as an illusion that captures the reflective intellect in a conflict, the conflict of positive and negative, of good and evil. The power of zero is absolute and annuls materialism, annuls the universe of relativity and everything within it, except it’s own being.
