' Nothing but concepts '...


Man's dread of insecurity, and his hope of aid from a superior power against it drive him to create the concept of a supernatural God.

Yet this God and
the very entity seeking security from it are both nothing but concepts.


As far as metaphysical duality is concerned, there is no conflict between opposites.

Man's conflict between good and evil, pleasure and pain, happiness and unhappiness, is as unthinkable in nature as an electric current without both positive and negative polarity.

The principle of polaric duality can only be understood metaphysically, through the willing acceptance of all interrelated opposites as the very basis of the universe and life therein.
