The building blocks of water are said to be 2 from hydrogen and 1 from oxygen. This is true, one may have defined water but, in my opinion, we should not view this definition as an example of an ABSOLUTE truth because it does not take us to the end of the matter.
What is hydrogen and what is oxygen? Define hydrogen and oxygen as you have defined water, then you may say you are approaching the absolute truth of what water IS.
However, I would also guess that in your description of hydrogen and oxygen, you will find cause to mention other components from which these are made so, please define them as well and keep on defining until you can state for certain that you are now speaking of the ORIGINAL building block.
Name, as you have named water, hydrogen and oxygen, the original building block. If you can speak the true word at this stage, I would guess that you would be speaking the original Word of creation. And, since that Word is Absolute Truth, then as you speak it, the material it is linked to must manifest.
Have you ever experienced this?
Or, have you ever being in the presence of rage and felt rage? Have you ever been in the presence of peace and felt peace?
I would guess again, "yes".
What I am trying to say is this, absolute truth is not a material thing. Nor is it esoteric. We confront and handle Absolute Truths every day. We live, and even though we may have the words to describe what we live on and how we live, we cannot create, with the word of our mouth, VIABLE life where there is none. Yet we live, mostly with ease.
We confront and handle Absolute Truths but, because of the limitations placed on us by our mode of existence, we do not OWN Absolute Truth. Until we are able to create, with the words from our mouth, VIABLE life where was none, we will not own Absolute Truth.
Truth is a feeling. It is the most sublime of all feelings, in fact, the most sublime feelings are nothing more than a manifestation of Truth within our souls. Feelings are felt and while the shallower feelings can be described, the deeper ones are beyond words. Absolute Truth is beyond words. It can only be experienced. Therefore, an arguement in an arena like this about what is Absolute Truth will never reach a satisfactory resolution. The only way to resolve this is not by defining a thing as Absolute Truth but by inducing it's experience in the one you wish to make aware.
Which is not an easy thing to do over this internet. But, if you think what I just said is wrong, please show it. And start with something simple : describe the taste of water after a great thirst. Describe it in such a way that my thirst will be eased.
NOTE: What I have asked is not impossible.
Discipleofthenile, here is a little quiz (just for fun): Since you ask that no limits be placed on you, answer this : Have you a centre? And, is that centre defined? If you answer "yes", then you have accepted a limitation on yourself, however, if you answer "no", then how can you describe this thing as a centre if it has no co-ordinates?
