The reality behind all appearances; what is it? He? She? Is ultimate reality contradictory to our best understanding of the apparent universe? To believe so is to chose insanity, to lose contact with reality in favor of some fantasy unrelated to the experienced universe. Such an exclusive interest in a subjective reality with indifference towards the experienced universe will be short lived; it cannot survive long. Is ultimate reality nothing more than our best understanding of the apparent universe?. To believe so is to chose arrogance; to believe that ultimate reality cannot transcend our ability to understand; to believe that there can be no ultimate mystery, ambiguity, or vulnerability; to believe that lovers can fully understand and control their love without destroying it; to believe that the uncertainty principle at the atomic level is not manifested in an uncertainty of the scientist who participates in reality in efforts to understand it. Is ultimate reality nothing more than the personification of our own provincialism and fantastic desires? To believe so is to chose to be foolish; to believe that ultimate reality mirrors the conflicts of interest and desires of all people who make such a foolish choice. Does our ability to see the foolishness of many notions regarding the nature of ultimate reality--- constitute proof that no such ultimate reality sustains the apparent universe? To believe so is to believe that any creator capable of creating thinkers such as healthy people thereby destroys the ground of being. Isn't it arrogant for a creature to think that any creator capable of creating the creature---thereby proves the impossibility of the creator? Who made the creature so central to the continued reality of the ultimate reality? Perhaps there is an ultimate ambiguity under which creatures will perceive their creator only in a mirror darkly, but then face to face, in Love. If so, there will never be full knowledge of the nature of the reality behind such subjective perceptions of the ultimate reality. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
