- ""The only fundamental basis for understanding is
that one understands only in proportion to becoming
himself that which he understands." (Papers, V B 40) Then
I would say that the unitive stage would be the
nullification of the one who understands in the
understanding."<br><br> One comment: The mystic, in the unitive state,
does not "understand". The mystic communes with the
spirit, not the intellect. For this reason much of
mystical experience cannot be described in common
- Thank you for your warm welcome Ron. You have a
fine sight for a very worthy subject. Just spent the
past several months in the study of Sorens "Fear and
Trembling" (forgive me I am spelling and grammar impaired).
Soren captured my interest in college after reading
Walker Perceys Novels and Philosophical writings. So
misunderstood by the christian community. What a pity.
