a problem with a question

I have a problem with a question I cannot form logically. Will you help me make sense of it and make it logical? Iâ€™m trying to say something like: â€˜how high is the absolute in comparison with everything weâ€™ve ever knownâ€™. Please catch me before I bring the question up in real life and get refuted with a simple twist of logic. I cannot see exactly where Iâ€™m going with this and that is exactly where I am MOST vulnerable.

this is where I try and break it down:

Absolute (is absolute) it has nothing relative. It’s related to 0. that’s my logic. So, according to this, it is illogical to call it ‘higher’ because it cannot be higher relative to any observation of itself. All observations of itself are absolute, and thus NOT relative.

Ok, I admit. This is going nowhere. Someone end this before I feel an urge to ask it again another time. If that isn’t satisfactory tell me why?

Not too sure what you are trying to say howether in case you didn’t know.

Existence is the absolute.

Existence relies on existence itself in order to exist.

Besides, absolute and relative are just viewpoints.

One deals with the accurate truth the other deals with efficient general truth.

Let me answer my own question.

â€˜how high is the absolute in comparison with everything weâ€™ve ever knownâ€™.

it cannot be high because high is on a scale, and there cannot be scales in the Absolute. there are only scales in the relative

is that better?

Scales exist in EVERYTHING - therefore, the Absolute is nothingNESS

“how high is the absolute in comparison with everything weâ€™ve ever known.”

My answer is… "the absolute cannot be ‘high’ - Unless it went up.

“How ‘far’ is the absolute in comparison with everything we’ve ever known?” Well, not sure about anyone else but the farthest thing I know (or at least I can think of) is our universe which goes on forever.

well, until we hit the walls of the big bubble that is.

I am having trouble appreciating this:

I do not think it is possible to determine that.

It makes me think of the “If a tree falls in a forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” dilemma. In other words, immeasurable and useless information.

Ok, why is everyone attacking the point I ALREADY debunked? I corrected it directly below the post you are attacking.

Argue this point if anything at all: â€˜being â€˜highâ€™ (or greater) is impossible for the Absolute because being high is only meaningful if it is measured on a scaleâ€¦ no scales or measures can exist in the Absolute because if there were a scale it would invariably make it relative.

That was my main pointâ€¦

Everything is relative from a certain viewpoint, even because the notion that we should attain to truth in our viewpoint is relative.

Plato was another sophist, after all.
