The Realisation of the Absolute :


Chapter-2.The Nature of the World


(a).The Dissertation on Experience-6.


The world is made up of forms.

The forms of things disclose their unreal nature when subjected to a careful examination of their composition and working.

A thing is a member of the society of diverse phenomenal centres appearing to divide against itself a basic Noumenon.

A thing is an object of thought, an internal form, and an external form is known through thought itself, which is consciousness objectified.

A form is differentiated from existence as a whole by a particular mode characterising it.

It cannot be said that a thing is defined by a mode or that it has a definite form unless it becomes an object of thought.

Thought itself is conditioned by forms, and it is thought, again, that knows external forms and determines their nature.
