Absolute

In the ISIT Belief System, The Absolute refers to that which has no boundary, no peer, no reference point. Something that is completely unified. Oneness. Unity. If something is Absolute, that means there is nothing else. If there was something else, then the first thing wouldn’t be Absolute. It would just be another thing that is relative to this other thing. By definition, Absolute means absolute oneness, which also means absolute isolation. There would be no mass. No space. No time. No axis upon which to be measured or scaled.

The Absolute can not be defined — by definition. The only way to define something is in terms of something else — some scale or relative object outside of whatever you are trying to define.

We, as finite creatures living in a relative Universe, really can’t even comprehend the Absolute any more than an amoeba can contemplate quantum mechanics. Less, in fact, because an amoeba contemplating quantum physics is at least within the realm of imaginable realities, while fully comprehending the Absolute is not.

So if we can’t even comprehend it, why is the Absolute so important? Why is it a Core Concept?

The Absolute is what provides us with the binary structure of the Reality in which we exist. A structure that we can deconstruct and reform into tools and resources to help us design more perfect lives.

Once we accept the concept of the Absolute, we are presented with a binary choice: Absolute or Not Absolute, i.e. Relative. This is the fundamental Duality at the core of Reality.
