The Realisation of the Absolute :2.(b).8.

The Realisation of the Absolute :

Chapter-2.The Nature of the World

(b) .The Critique of Duality - 8.

Brahman which is the cause and the world which is the effect are basically identical, and hence change and causation lose their meaning.

The phenomenal world is caught up in space, time and causation, which scatter themselves without a past or a future.

One thing is in relation to the other, and the world-process seems to be eternal.

An eternal multiplicity is an impossibility, and an individual cannot be an enduring being.

The world, thus, proves itself to be a naught and gives way to the being that is one and that does not change.

Since samsara as a whole has neither a beginning nor an end, except with reference to the individuals, the ideas of a real creation and destruction fall to the ground.

Absolutism satisfactorily solves all the problems of life.
