Is it an illusion? Is it a surprise?
Or, is it merely a dream?
It is beingness and nothingness,
nature in all of its manifestations,
phenomena and noumena;
It is without beginning or ending;
It in Chinese philosophy is the yin and yang, the feminine and masculine principles in nature that
combined produce all that is and will come to be;
It in the analytic psychology of C. G. Jung is the anima and animus, the inner feminine and inner masculine parts of the female and male that are in everything and most notably reflected archetypally in each human being.
It in the Hegelian dialectics is the thesis, antithesis and synthesis, a process where the combination of the thesis and antithesis evolves into a higher stage of truth call the synthesis.
It, all that is and all that is not, is more lucidity than illusion, the yin and yang, anima and animus, thesis, antithesis and synthesis, rendezvousing and exploding apocalyptically with a bang that is heard everywhere and everynowhere as its resounding sound catapults the Cosmos beyond the obits and lands those souls that human bodies could no longer contain into Paradise where the journey is culminated but does not end. Paradise is it in the Eternal Now.
