The Theodicy of φ


Heraclitus instructs Leibniz: "τῷ μὲν θεῷ καλὰ πάντα καὶ ἀγαθὰ καὶ δίκαια, ἄνθρωποι δὲ ἃ μὲν ἄδικα ὑπειλήφασιν ἃ δὲ δίκαια"  [phi studios 2015]

Heraclitus instructs Leibniz:   “τῷ μὲν θεῷ καλὰ πάντα καὶ ἀγαθὰ καὶ δίκαια, ἄνθρωποι δὲ ἃ μὲν ἄδικα ὑπειλήφασιν ἃ δὲ δίκαια.”                                                                         [phi studios 2015]

Why Good?  Why Evil?

Why Man?  Why God?

The problem of Good and  Evil, it’s really not that complicated, it’s a matter of frames of reference.  It is simply that men are not fitly placed to be scrutineer to the workings of God, nor Man the only thing on God’s mind.

Heraclitus understood this when he said:

“To God all things are fair and good and just, but men hold some things wrong and some right.”

From this everything flows

The Undifferentiated cannot know its Primordial Self

The act of Creation is the operation of differentiation from the undifferentiated primordial this-state into this and that

What would be watched requires the watcher

Good cannot be known if there is no evil

There can be no free will without the prospect for sin, therefore the fall

There can be no God without Man to know him

Man cannot be human without God
