cannot know what is true because conceptual truth is contextual.
So is the conclusion then that there are no absolute truths.
There are many truths; but there is nothing absolutely,
unquestionably, undeniably, nor permanently true.
Well, yes and no. None of mind's conceptual knowledge is inherently true or
false because mind establishes it's own contextual reference for everything it
thinks it knows and further defines those concepts with a dualistic polarity.
Basically, mind makes it all up and so there is no absolute reference that
defines anything as absolutely true.
However, that which is not conceptual is not limited by mind's contextual
boundaries, and that which is seen 'beyond' mind is not subject to the dualistic
evaluation of true/false. So yes, there is an absolute Truth about which nothing
can be said without dragging it, kicking and screaming, into the limiting
context of conceptualization. Gnosticism was never about conceptual knowledge,
it was always about Knowingness.
