Discussion-7. "Self-existing ( Svayambhu )" .....................
We, the finite creatures, as human beings, can struggle and strive to understand the Reality behind the world of perceived plurality only through the intervention of our instruments of thinking and feeling.
Our intellect can function only in three definite fields of activity called time, space, and causality.
Cause - hunting is the great avocation of the intellect.
Whenever we a thing in this world, over which we want to make a research and enquiry, should naturally dive itself into the quest of its cause.
Thus Mr. Z. is better understood when we understand that he is the son of Mr. Y.
But if the enquiry is still carried on, we will have to come to a statement that Mr. Y. is the son of Mr. X; X the son of W, and in the same strain we can arrive at a point when we shall understand that Mr. is the son of Mr. A.
But still there is scope to enquire who is the father of A.
Similarly, in the world also, the causation-hunting-intellect will have to be checkmated at a particular point by a great grand supposition only to stem the tide of its own wasteful flow.
