is innately dependent upon an idea that exceeds its capability to
understand. That idea ties
reason's ultimate definition of itself to the
necessity for order within the unknowable. Without
recourse to this association,
reason cannot link difference (non-being and being) in a cause and effect relationship.
This is because simultaneity does not, by necessity, admit of succession --
a precursor for relevance and
hence reflective thought.
overcomes this obstacle by way of dichotomy -- a linear representation of
simultaneity that employs self-canceling
aspects of difference within the same idea. To achieve this substitution,
reason necessarily alters the form of the absolutes, non-being
and being, causing them to take on a relevance (to being) in the form of something
and nothing. 'Nothing' thereafter constitutes the possibility for
singularity in idea whereas
'something' constitutes the possibility for multiplicity.
use of dichotomy exacts
a heavy toll upon reason. Once
singularity and multiplicity
are merged, reason is unable to understand the relevance of either --
since both potential controls
now become unknowable. Because
reason's purpose (for itself) is not
inherent to its construct,
but results from reflection
upon its function, its purpose is thereafter lost to itself.
an attempt to identify a logical approach capable of encompassing 'order
within the unknowable,'
reason inevitably turns to chaos.
It then pursues chaos in the form of infinite difference,
spawning a complexity that inevitably exceeds the temporality upon which
mortality depends for self-recognition.
reason's process inherently self-destructive. If
reason wants to survive itself,
it must learn to contain its predisposition
to complexity. If it does not
do so, it will inevitably
destroy itself, because it lacks innate internal controls that would
otherwise prevent it.
