“Differentiation and changeability from the scientific point of view, is known as evaluation, which, as I just tried to express, is a relative notion. This is why, although distinctions seem to exist from a unitary perspective, if individuals can free themselves from the notion of being a separate unit and become reflectors of the Universal Intellect, they will realize that they all share the same value as they are all the creations of the Universal Intellect.”

Aynha was pleased with this answer.

He moved on to the second question:

“If individuals are the reflections of the Universal Intellect, how can they feel happiness or misery? Do misery and happiness exist for the Universal Intellect? If so, how? If not, then what is the source of happiness and misery, since everything is reflecting the Universal Intellect?”

Alph took a moment to reflect… He swiftly travelled through the islands of thought in his ocean of memory… It wasn’t hard to make the necessary connections. He answered promptly:

Happiness and misery result from the tendency of individuals to observe and evaluate each other from the perspective of their individual state of being, and their strong attachment to the judgments which result thereby. The extent to which they realize their individual state of existence is actually invalid at the level of consciousness, and they are essentially reflectors of the Universal Intellect, the concepts of happiness and misery will then disintegrate and all units of existence will hold ‘equal value’ for them.

“This, of course, will happen at the extent to which the reflector is able to reflect the Universal Intellect. If the individual is able to grasp the unity within the multiplicity, that is, if he recognizes that all units of existence are the exhibitions of the Universal Intellect, he will begin to observe everything with a united vision whereby opposites will cease to be. It will become evident that all seeming units of existence are like the eyes of the Universal Intellect observing one another.”

At the level of Alph’s traineeship, this answer was more than satisfactory.

Aynha immediately asked the next question:

“What is the originating point of existence and the end point of existence for individual beings?”

Their originating point is the Universal Intellect’s attribute of creation. Their end is the perpetual reflection of this attribute in various forms at infinitum.

“But if we really have to define an end point, we can say the point at which the unit realizes he is the reflector of the Universal Intellect is the end of his ‘individual existence’, or the assumption thereof. Beyond that is infinity, as one cannot think of an ‘end’ for the Universal Intellect or Its attributes.”

Aynha was quite pleased with Alph’s answers; especially considering this was the first exam of his traineeship.

Alph was definitely a candidate for being a comprehensive reflector of the Universal Intellect. In meeting the expected criteria, Alph had earned eligibility to interact with the other beings in the universe. He was to commence meetings with earthlings and Setrians to explore their lifestyles and thought processes in person.

But why had Alph been examined before meeting the earthlings and Setrians?

The reason was simple. Alph had been raised as pure intellect in an unconditioned environment with a system of integrated knowledge.
