A mature ultimate faith transcends all binary oppositions, including that between “mind” and “matter”, or between “the subject” and “the object”. What is believed in as the ultimate reality must embrace whatever is imagined to be existing, not missing anything. It must be all-in-one without distinction between “primary” and “secondary”.... This “unity” must not be presented only as a juggling of words but first be realized in cognitive understanding, that is, be understood as an ultimate unity of everything without any kinds of differentiation, such as between a physical world (e.g., “matter” as opposed to “mind”) and a specific form of spirit (e.g., “God the creator” as opposed to creatures or “the created”).
