What is the meaning of presence and absence, affirmation and negation, being and not being? especially with regard to a channel – full or empty – between what is completely beyond and what is completely within.
- be separate
- separate from God
- prior to God
- is confusing to define, both as being separate or not, and as BeingOneWith
- is the satisfying of a definition
- is the taking up of a vantage point
- is subsequent to System, is not beyond it, and is relevant in it negatively as NotBeing
- is a topic shared by Persons. Logical statements have to do with saying that "there exists" or that "for all" regarding some quality.
- what is assumed, the relationship between one (independent, distinct identity) and one's self (dependent, contextual identity), the sharing of a frame, the projection of the Referer (sharer) frame within the Referent (shared) frame as its NullActivity, thus allowing for a shared frame (being) for both Referer (as body) and Referent (as thing), independence of conditions, definiteness of being alone, being alone within a context (where there can be not being, thus an absolute set of relationships for references, thus a scope), satisfying a definition of being alone, the distinction of God's going beyond himself and going into himself, the distinction (within Scope by NotGod) of being alone (Being) from not being alone (NotBeing), the distinction of Questions and Answers, independent being, independence of System, thus relation with what is beyond System including NotBeing, expression as Position, the taking up of Answers, thus the Activity of being separate, being without Self, beyond one's Self. Being and NotBeing are the same beyond Scope (for God as Self (NotGod, Everything, Lack of self) derives unconditionally). Being and NotBeing are distinct as Person for NotGod because God derives from Self conditionally. (GoingBeyondOneself, Divergence, Distinction, Division).
Being and NotBeing
- is to depend on Scope
- is the ways that a Person can exist, can be separate from God
- is the Scopes with regard to which a Person is defined
- is the distinction of what allows (for nonexistence; God) and what is allowed (as nonexistence; NotGod)
- is expressed in terms of Scope and Person.
- is the lack of relationship between one and one's self, the nonsharing of a frame, dependence on conditions, on System, indefiniteness (lack of distinction) of being alone or not, separation from Being, expression as Perspective, the not taking up of Answers, being with Self, in one's Self.
- conflict with each other only if their coinciding is imposed upon a person. So that they are compared but not through him, thus making irrelevant his comparison.
- are defined with regard to the system or beyond it?
- are the same for God (for whom they are completely separate), and also the same for Other (for whom they are completely the same)
God's Being and NotBeing
- is his LackOfSelf, going without self, being separate from himself, self-negation
- is his going beyond himself
- is his unconditional BeingAlone
- in nonexistence is Activity evoking Structure, and Structure links a Scope with the other scopes.
- is a matter of each Person's existence, in that they are prior to the arisal of God
- is the potential of God
- is his giving up himself, negating himself, his unconditional being Alone
- are the same because God is his own Self
- are his self-negation and self-affirmation, respectively
- are simply words and he is the only reference point for them... so how do other reference points arise for words?
- go hand in hand, for God (nonbeing) stands apart from anyself, yet (being) thereby is related to his self and plays off this relationship
