Being is that which exists.
Knowledge of, and theatre of our Being.
The Universe is All Being.
Whatever has Being is in the Universe.
The Universe contains all creation
But is not created. It has neither beginning nor end.
The Universe is.
A law is a reading of a pattern;
The Law is the pattern.
Laws have Being.
The Universe contains all Laws.
The Void is the absence of Being.
As complement to the Universe,
The Void exists and contains no Law.
All states emerge from the Void
For the contrary would be a Law of the Void.
It is thus shown that the Void—and so
Being and the Universe—have no limits.
Realism (Logic) is the only constraint for concepts
To have objects in the Universe.
(Agreement with fact is part of this concept of Logic.)
Our science and experience have domains of validity
But the Universe is greater without limit
Than those domains and our cosmos.
The Universe has (must have) manifestation and Identity
In acute, diffuse and absent (non-manifest) phases.
That something must come from nothing is a trivial corollary.
The extension, duration, variety, summits and their magnitudes,
And dissolutions of manifest phases are without limit.
The Universe confers these powers on individuals
For the contrary would entail a limit on the Universe.
The individual realizes the Universe.
If power is degree of limitlessness
The Universe is ultimate power
And the individual realizes this power.
(Our limits are temporary conditions
Of our form of Being,
Which are likely the result of origins.)
While in limited form realization is endless process—
A Journey in Being.
In unlimited form realization is Aeternitas—
Eternity in a moment.
Endless process implies that our
Empirical and symbolic sciences
Must remain ever in process and
Require immersion for completion.
Our civilization is the collection of human cultures
Across time and continents.
Greater Civilization is the matrix of civilizations
Across the Universe.
Individuals foster Civilization;
Civilization nurtures the individual.
Civilization is the hearth of realization;
The individual is the manifestation of realization.
(While in limited form realization is endless process—
A Journey in Being.)
While individual and Civilization are vehicles
Ideas and action are modes of transformation and realization.
Civilization provides ways of ideation and action—
Disciplines of thought and action.
The standard forms of the disciplines—
Secular and trans-secular—
Are riddled with error and limitation
But constitute a ground on which to build.
The individual journey is given.
However for efficiency and enjoyment
The way of realization is
Analysis and synthesis of ideas and Being,
Which includes thought, experiment,
The places of realization are
Nature and society.
Realization derives inspiration from the disciplines
And the powers of Being and thought
