There is no proof that achieving absolute TRUTH is impossible.
Nor is there proof that it is possible.
I have not seen anyone prove anything on this forum concerning that.
Only personal viewpoints.
You can hold on to your beliefs and I can hold on to mine, which is cool.
But we must sight that belief is not knowledge.
I posted quotes from other familiar people to show that I am not the only person to have silimilar opinions on absolute TRUTH.
Then maybe some will see that I not so pessimistic and limiting after all.
Or maybe we all are.
I am not sure about the question about transcending ones like Haile Selassie, Buddha, Y'shua, etc.
What do you mean by transcend?
Do you mean do greater works?
Could you clarify please?
As far as human limits, I believe that we are limited to a certain degree because of our physical bodies. But there are stories of people levitating, walking on water, floating up to heaven, etc.
I not sure what happens (or if anything happens) to the soul, conscious after the body 'dies' so I cant say what the spiritual/mental limits are or are not. But maybe you or someone can.
I do believe that we may have only scratched the surface of human potential since we have not been able to use but a small percent of our brains.
Time will tell
