Proslogium Critique

Without God it is ill with us. Our labors and attempts are in vain without God.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Locations 21-22). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

we believe that you are a being than which nothing greater can be conceived.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Locations 68-69). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

A Source essence, changeless-changer. A non-relatable relater. An infinite eternity in the passing form of tne here and now. How cana passing form hope to understand tnat which is beyond passing? A non-particular that particularizes?

it is one thing for an object to be in the understanding, and another to understand that the object exists.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Locations 71-72). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

The intuition of the non-measurable "thing" that measures.

IT exists with passing potentiality elsewhere in time and place, in the infinite-eternity of tne math-web of non-particular time and place.

Understanding of terms is needed with regard to existentiality and reality. A math that relates the potentiality of infinite eternity to the particular experientiality of the passing phasing here and now.

creates all things from nothing.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Location 106). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

Creates all things from things that in ultimate reality are no-thing other than formulas ruled and formed out of math being put to function by consciousness.

alone exists through itself, and creates all other things from nothing?

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Location 107). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

We see whence the river flows, but the spring whence it arises is not seen.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Locations 158-159). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.

Bonded with the here and now, we measurably sense the here and now, but the infinite-eternal is not measurably represented to any senses apart from the intuitive and direct sense of conscious beingness.

it is right to believe that you justly pity the wicked.

St. Anselm of Canterbury. Proslogium (Kindle Locations 177-178). Magisterium Press. Kindle Edition.


Perfect justice cannot be linearly apportioned without allowance for phase shifts. Once death is the reward, it cannot be accorded further proportionality in the absence of karma. And if karma were purely math based, there would be no need for a qualitatively appreciative mathematician.

But, without a body, in what quality or sense may we comprehend that God appreciates anything or any feedback?

We cannot, except via an intuitive leap of faith.

How does the Godhead reconcile values as appreciated between the perspectives of the holism and the particulars? It does not experience bodily satiation or pleasure as a particular. So, how doe IT appreciate such experiences, in order to value, triage, favor, and choose among them?

I don't grok it. Unless maybe as some meta upshot that is simply beyond mortal ken. Some heirarchical or circular process of delegation and vicarious bonding with chosen, passing, and phasing moments and forms. Some meta interest in choosing among degrees of freedom for directing the unfoldings of parameters. Some meta capacity for bonding with mortal experiences. Perhaps IT needs mortal and particular perspectives to feed meaningfulness to itself as an infinite-eternal holism. Otherwise, how could any aspect of existentiality choose any path beyond random cycles of chaotic evolutions of patterns? And why would there be layers upon layers and levels upon levels of repetitive fractal patterns -- as if a mathematician must rule the umfoldments of math based expression? Why should immaterial math functions repeat themselves in so many fractals? Why should every expression of a local pattern necessitate sponsorship or coordinate relationship with higher and lower levels of similar math based functions, as if math were causing math, rather than billiard ball pinging with billiard balls?

I do not accord that a Qualitative Being must occupy self with math precision in meting out material rewards for temporal and placeholder purposes. Nor do I accord that the eternal and infinite must be chained to any here and now interpretation of justice. Rather, justice must carry a participatory, feedback, systemic, appreciative aspect. What seems just for our niche may not be just for all. Simply put, we participate in innate good faith and good will, keeping in mind what is needed to sustain a consistent, coherent, decent society that avails participatory freedom and dignity among empathetically and intuitively copesetic perspectives. It is more spiritually good and just to think about faith and works than aboit perfect justice. The godhead metes out reconciliatory guidance within parameters. Not chokehold justice. Still, the godhead does reconcile parameters for connecting paths.
