I am of the opinion that once the conditions of apartness and of togetherness, as presented in the last few posts, are associated next to one another in time or in space, the major topic of the blogosphere will emerge and become more to our understanding.
With this caveat in place, please allow me to present two separate conditions, A and B, for our fellow bloggers to consider.
Condition A encompasses things that are intangible, less understood and worlds apart from Condition B, which consists of things that are perceptible, discernable and well known. While these differences between the two are readily apparent, there is evidence derived from interested investigators that suggest certain similarities exist between the A. and B!
Furthermore, if indeed, similarities of conditions A and B are shown to be factual, it first suggests that conditions of A and B are really not worlds apart but are more in agreement (together) than they originally were thought to be.
I know that some of these things stated above are somewhat foreign to many readers and will require further clarification. And that is exactly what I will attempt to do in succeeding posts.As promised in the last post, 'Emergence of our Blogosphere', I now will begin the process of clarifying the content of a very short statement mentioned in that post. I purposely use the phrase, 'begin the process', because it is the starting of a series of proceedings we will take in order to achieve the completion of our ongoing blogosphere's platform.
The first statement began by listing two separate conditions or domains, A and B. Each consIst of 'things' that generally describe the differences between the two settings. By replacing the word 'things' with more specific names we can start to better understand the statement. The statement then becomes the following:
Condition A is identified as the Unseen World possessing objects that are intangible, less understood and worlds apart from Condition B, which is the Seen World. This second world consists of objects that are perceptible, discernible and well known. While these differences between the two worlds are readily acknowledged, there is evidence derived from the method of analogical reasoning that suggest certain similarities exist between the Unseen World and the Seen World!
Furthermore, if these similarities are shown to be reasonable by this type of thinking about something in a logical,sensible way, it advocates these domains are really not worlds apart but are more in agreement (together) than they originally were thought to be.
Please note that there are other equivalences or substitutes for Unseen and Seen Worlds. They include nonphysical vs. physical, spiritual vs. nonspiritual, supernatural vs. natural and the inner unseen self vs. outer seen self.
More on this topic in the next post. Stay tuned.
So far we have identified and dissected the term, ‘apart’. As portion of our blogosphere’s title, we can combine it with a word or proposition that means they are so related that both cannot be true and both cannot be false at same time. They are mutually exclusive, opposite or contrary to each other. As we take on this exercise of comparing apart to something else, let’s look at a few terms or words that are contradictory to each other.
+ perfect and imperfect
+ antithetical (being so different as to be irreconcilable)
+ opposite (applies to things that are in sharp contrast or in conflict)
+ (Regarding marriage), what God has joined together, let no man separate (that which is joined). Mark 10:9.
+ “Is the relationship between sisters one of togetherness or apartness?”
Togetherness means to be in association with someone or thing. Togetherness is a contradictory term to the meaning of apartness. Togetherness suggests a strong linkage between the two entities that is calm, stable and well-balanced.
I am of the opinion that once the interrelated qualities of apartness and togetherness are associated next to one another in time or in space, the major topic of the blogosphere will become more to our understanding.
