I stopped reading at 8... hah, an absolute reality :wink:

Beyond that, it seems that one must choose to acknowledge a god for this conception of reality to be evident. Good content, but the premise could use a bit of work; anything that attempts to explain reality in 40 versus is hardly sufficient.

how can the relative exist if there isn't an absolute that underlies it? by absolute it means what is left if you remove all that can be removed. and no, you don't need to acknowledge a god, you need only acknowledge yourself. if you stopped reading at 8 i don't think you're in position to judge it's sufficiency, any long work can be summarized.

:shrug: I'm absolutely in a position to judge... that's your rendition on the material presented... it's not absolute.

Unless you wrote it yourself, I fail to see why your taking it as a personal criticism.

(By the way, your 40 versus should provide the answer)

Edit:
See 20, and 21 ... looks like one must find god to realize self actualization... unless you care to interpret that for me.
