The Realisation of the Absolute :2. ( d )-7.



Chapter-2.The Nature of the World
(d). THE IDEA OF PROGRESS-7.

This is what will appear to the individual situated in a world of relativity,

for the relative individual cannot help conceiving the Absolute in relative terms.

We cannot know anything except in terms of what we are.

Because everything changes, change itself is classed as a separate category of Reality.

It is true that, strictly speaking,

there can be no such thing as a complete wrong or error,

falsehood or evil,

or any kind of pure negative of truth,

but only a lesser truth or a higher truth,

that the negative is not "existence" and so is not,

that all is one positive indivisible Truth,

though it may appear to have degrees when it is objectively experienced.

But, nevertheless, it has to be remembered that to hold that Truth really undergoes a change can have no meaning.

Evolution is not an absolute category but an experiential interpretation.
