God cannot create something other than Himself.

God cannot hide from Himself the fact that He is God.

The former destroys Western Dualism (Monotheism); the latter destroys Eastern Non-Dualism (Monism).

Since the two 'axioms' cancel each other out, I am free from both 'East' and 'West'.

What this does is to clear a space [between 'East' and 'West' with Israel at the center-- the mean point where meaning is] in order for the Flash of inspiration (the Ruach haKodesh-- the spirit located at the 'Center' / the mean / Israel /Jerusalem/ the Temple) to occur.

There are only three philosophical positions that I can conceive of holding: Monotheism, pantheism, or agnosticism.
Monotheism, which is the position I hold, is [logically] impossible* since there cannot be anything other than God.  It does however respond to man's need for an Other.
Pantheism is [logically] 'true', but there is no [real] Other in it.
Agnosticism finds both of these positions objectionable.  It refuses to assume oneness with the All (pantheism / Monism) and get tagged as 'It' (i.e. God) or worship an Other (Monotheism / dualism) who cannot [logically]* exist.

* Man by nature (logic) is pantheistic.  He can only conceive of an unbroken, unitive extention of the 'part' into the All/Whole ('God').
