That verse from Tao teh Ching that Jestor posted has always baffled me, why couldn't he leave it at "the one creates all things" instead of going to three?


Simple. First there was Oneness. No duality. The Force United. One gave birth to two, meaning Yin and Yang were created so that we could experience opposites and exist in a subjective universe. Two gave birth to three, creating the Trinity: Mind, Body, Spirit... God the Father, the son, and Holy Spirit... Past, Present, and Future... Here, There, and In Between...

Once that was established, the universe was set to give birth to ALL THINGS. This is why there needed to be the one, to split into two, which created the three. Skip any of those steps, and the universe would not exist.

Woohoo! Not one but TWO! AWESOME! I knew people know Tolkien but that's one of his less-read books! Silmarilion is my favorite of his works because it covers the history and mythology of Middle Earth and those are my favorite topics.

“Though, as the crusade presses on, I find myself altogether incapable of staying here in saftey while others shed their blood for such a noble and just cause. For surely must the Almighty be with us even in the sundering of our nation. Our fight is for freedom, for liberty, and for all the principles upon which that aforementioned nation was built.” - Patrick “Madman of Galway” O'Dell
