Between Alpha and Omega
We never exist but 'between'. Between borders delimiting our epistemological and pragmatic possibilities. It is there, in our 'middle' between 'extremes', that we endeavor to know and act. It is there that spreads our science and our technology. It is there that we build and organize our world.
So many mysteries surround us and so many questions, already in the field of the simple material nature. Is the universe really system, mega-system, or is it an irreducible scattered plurality? Are our epistemological possibilities regarding the universe total or simply regional? Is the universe, may it be total or regional, understandable in a homogeneous or in a heterogeneous way? What is really 'matter'? What is energy? What is space-time? Is time absolutely irreversible? Is the cosmos unique or is there a plurality of worlds? Is this possible plurality basically complementary or is it antagonistic? Do there exist anti-universes? Are the interactions we know (and we unify) the only interactions?
Are today's principles of scientific intelligibility, conquered on not-scientists or prescientific intelligibilities, absolute or only transitory? Is the space of our scientific intelligibility homogeneous and governed right through by the same type of intelligibility, as today's science postulates it? Which is the probability of future radical epistemological revolutions? In relation to the totality, is there only one order of intelligibility or are there several orders? Are there today stammering not-sciences which can be tomorrow more scientific sciences than our current ones?
And further, still more fundamentally, these questions at the frontiers of our physical world. Why is there something rather than nothing? What is the act of being? What is existence? What is creation? What is necessity? What is chance?
And even further. What is spirit? What is reason? What about the requirement for rationality? What about the mystery of speaking? What about the possible questioning ad infinitum? What is value? What is truth? What about the infinite critical possibility of the spirit? What about the irrepressible protestation for justice? Why the human gaping?
Our obviousness and our questioning remains floating in the middle of 'between'.
Thus the scientific reason, for example, is like a 'bubble' floating on infinity. Its spherical coherence occupies the vast space of the middle. The extremes are excluded from it. Which sense, however, can it have, the middle, without its extremes?
