Aphorisms for a new year

With thanks to all those who helped me learn in the last decade.

I. Noncontradiction is the spiritual equivalent of materiality.
II. The subsumption of matter into spirit is the fruit of the union of practical and theoretical dialectic.
III. The essence of theory is action, and the practical and the theoretical are one.
IV. Space both is and is not a property of place.
V. The origin of all that exists is not an object we can adorn with predicates.
VI. Time and space are only relative to one bound by them.
VII. The passage to Understanding can only be made by the man who is not.
