Leonid Golender : Poles

Aristos

Because of our powers of reasoning, imaging and supposing, We exist mentally in a world of opposites, converses, negatives. There may be some kind of absolute reality that is not like this. There may be other relative realities. But this tensional, or polar, reality is the one we human inhabit.

Anything that exists or can be imagine to exist is a pole. All feelings, ideas, thoughts, are poles; and each pole has counterpoles.

There are two categories of counterpole. One is nothingness, the non-existance of the pole. The other is whatever denies, attacks, diminishes, stands contrary to or diverts from the pole.
