Basically, the foundation of all philosophy is mankind’s innate curiosity to gain an insight into his remote past, to establish the innate purpose of life and to attempt to create models for the future of mankind resulting from a keen study of the past and the present. However, the depth and quality of any philosophy would depend on the coherence of the ideas presented as functions of the pellucidity of the mind of the thinker in question and his subsequent Enlightenment – a peculiar talent to tap into the Superconscious that is the primordial source of all intellectual and divine knowledge.
Great philosophers become immortalized by the virtue of their original and valuable expositions that they make. As such, their ideas are usually developed in great detail and explored in great depth thanks to their ability to tap the quietude of the innate Awareness where all wisdom originates since that is the best observer of all around us.
The most enlightened philosophers make invaluable contribution to the current and future civilizations in terms of understanding the more elegant aspects of life. This becomes possible due to their innate coherence and fecundity which becomes evident every time they set their minds on a new idea. This reminds me of the philosopher’s stone and its symbolical meaning in the quest for supreme Enlightenment. It is a concept very close in demeanor with what am pointing to here.
The work of an Awakened philosopher has a certain elusive profound unity and as such it’s geared towards developing a primary intuition – philosophical intuition.
The architecture of philosophy
The best way to approach philosophical works is to penetrate to the very heart of the corpus – that is, to take a comfortable seat in the philosopher’s mind. This way, such a great work goes under a subtle transformation where the coherence and importance of all it elements become suddenly perceptible with a natural-like ease.
With such an approach replete in skillful means, everything converges to a single point, to which one begins to feel drawn closer and closer to the true intended meaning of the work. There is no human knowledge or philosophy that has ever come from a different universe since we are all portions of the same divinity. The problem is that we see other people as exclusively separate from our persons and that way we quickly disparage their ideas without giving them a second glance.
