In seeking to know everything, we first wonder, is it possible to know anything? In other words, are there any absolutes?
Everything is important as an absolute Concept. It is absolute in the sense that we all have it, it is well-defined, and for all of us it is the same. It is an absolute in our society in the sense that, upon inspection, we all do individually admit and recognize this concept. It is absolute for us as individuals, and pragmatically, it is absolute for us as a society.
Everything is an anchor concept in that, accepted as an absolute, it serves as a ground for other concepts, possibly all other concepts.
Apparently, as we develop as people, we find our own DeepestValue which serves as our own everything. We can therefore communicate with each other regarding our own key concept.
Our potential is fulfilled by our ability to live with absolutes. This happens when we are able to love that which is completely independent of us. In this sense, we are commanded to LoveGod. We are to BePerfect and to do what we do without distinctions towards others.
Our ability to live by absolutes comes about through ConstructiveHypotheses that we take up.
JosephGoguen: Buddhists also find the absolute in sunyata, saying that the world is all relative and non-absolute, but the emptiness of the world is absolute. There are also a traditional theory of knowledge and a logic based on the viewpoint of sunyata, for which one might consult the book by Stcherbatsky "Buddhist Logic" (this email is not a good place for such details but Google can find some interesting links (of variable quality)).
