[Editor’s Note: This is an excerpt of a longer, lyrical essay by Flint.]
Can being be absolute outside of space-time, and yet remain absolute within space-time? An answer in the negative yields a series of troublesome problems (notwithstanding the Aquinas formulation); while an answer in the affirmative yields an even more troublesome contradiction.
This, then, leads to a separate observation. Is there a place where reason reaches its apex, a summit of contradictions that lead to a new placeless place?
