What is reality for? What is philosophy for? What is science for? What is Revealed Truth for?
What is a woman for?
Ultimately, it is all the same question.
And there is a masculine answer and a feminine answer to that question.
The masculine answer: Reality, philosophy, science, Revealed Truth, and a woman are to be understood. (And, speaking from experience, good luck
And, in an attempt to understand these things, there is, for example, the scientific method and theology (as manifested in, for example, the conflicts
between the evolutionists and the creationists); both of which perspectives are, however, masculine.
But, in addition to the masculine answer to this question, there is also the feminine answer:
That reality, philosophy, science, Revealed Truth and a woman are not so much to be understood as to be lived and experienced.
And will any of these things ever be understood?
Well, not by a man anyway (although there is a lot of joy and suffering in the attempt).
And why not?
Because that is not what they are FOR.
Ultimately, it is not so much the purpose of reality or a woman to be understood, as it is their purpose to be loved and enjoyed, and tolerated, and
suffered, and experienced, and lived rather than merely understood.
That is what life is: an experience more than an understanding. (As Kierkegaard said: "Life is lived forwards and understood backwards.")
And, ultimately, it is not so much the purpose of Revealed Truth to be understood as it is its purpose to be experienced as a dimension
of consciousness altogether different than the consciousness of the “self” and the ‘thinker’.
Ultimately, it is the purpose of Revealed Truth not so much to be believed as to achieve a completely different dimension of
consciousness altogether; not as merely a theory based upon a belief, but as an actual experience out of which knowledge and, then,
understandings (although tentative) emerge.
Neither the evolutionists nor the creationists appear to be aware of this.
