Sample text

The innumerable arteries of the fulguration, as Leibniz would say, of ever new self-individualizing beings, of their intermingling in dynamic unfolding, of their transformations in cyclic progress while they promote the continuity of life's swing ... the myriads of significant articulations that the human creative mind brings into this great game of forces ... all this proceeding against the tensions of seemingly opposed forces, energies being set on a collision course, makes the possibility of a great plan for it all, a plan spoken of by Heraclitus, as remote as it seemed to be given his logic of contradiction.

Heraclitus attributed knowledge of it to an access to the real that is different from natural cognition, an access THE GREAT PLAN OF LIFE 25 to the "inner constitution" of things. But how is it possible for the few who, he said, can attain this access to penetrate to the innermost arteries of life, which remain hidden, mute and do not reach the surface of the manifested world of life, cognitions of which are shared by all? This is a question that cannot be answered. With the constitutive powers with which we have established this marvelous edifice of the world of life, we slide above its surface.

At this transitional station of life thrown like a fisherman's net upon a stormy wave the mysterious potentialities of life are retrieved from the flux and through human creative genius are brought to a glorious achievement, the manifestation of intellectual life. C. The Creative Manifestation of Life The Encounter of Both Modes of Rationality - Stability and Flux It is in virtue of the creative virtualities - aesthetic, moral, and intellectual- that the human being became "human," that is, having unfolded a specific type of nucleic life agency, the mind, they bring forth this glorious spectacle of life.
