Example text

Clement’s view is clearly monotheistic, as it unites the opposites in one God. Later Christianity, however, is dualistic, inasmuch as it splits off one half of the opposites, personified in Satan, and he is eternal in his state of damnation. Jung, Psychology and Religion (1958) 12 Thou shalt have one God only; who Would be at the expense of two? Arthur Hugh Clough, The Latest Decalogue (1862) 8 PANTHEISM—MONISM See also 29. Zaehner, Mysticism Sacred and Profane (1957) 2 Those experiences which are usually termed pantheistic, the experience which tells you that you are all and that all is you… It would be far more accurate to describe this experience as ‘pan-en-hen-ism’, ‘all-in-one-ism’, for that is what in fact the experience tells us.

They are nothing but names which you and your fathers have used. Koran, 53, 19–23 4 When on high the heaven had not been named, firm ground below had not been called by name, naught but primordial waters, their begetter, and Mother Tiamat, she who bore them all. Enuma Elish, When on high, 1 (12–10th centuries BCE) 5 O mother earth, kindly set me down upon a well-founded place!
