The True and False of It

“In a universe that defies description, all systems of belief can only be false.”
— Austin Osman Spare

 

Buckminster Fuller said the universe was asynchronously apprehended which means that it cannot be fully comprehended all at once. At most when we contemplate the vastness that we live in we can only achieve a partial comprehension. I believe it is possible to have a peak or mystical experience where we can catch a glimpse of the totality but those tend to be notoriously difficult to put into words. Therefore any system of belief that is written or spoken is only a partial approximation and thus on some level flawed. With that understanding tho we can look at many belief systems (and lets not kid each other, there are probably at least as many systems of belief as there are people. Even people who believe in as structured a religion as fundamentalist christianity will differ in exactly how they interpret the ‘literal word of God’ and what that means in their lives.) any one of them will be false or at best partial. Of course since I believe we live in a universe of infinite possibility I also agree with Ken Wilber when he says that everyone is right (but partial).
Blessings, G

  1. I highly recommend you read The God Series by Mike Hockney, I am not a paid shill, just a fan. It summarizes well the abandonment of Abrahamism for Rational Ontological Mathematics as a model of reality.

    1. I actually have read a few in the series and am somewhat of a fan as well. They have a piece of the puzzle that i quite respect and enjoy
