Then there is also the "relative" as in kinship or family "relation",
and we should not replace "relative" with "kinship" either, unless
that is what you are speaking of. I think what you are using is
definition 8, which may be appropriate. That is happiness in regard
to a person's view, or happiness stemming from a person (change
"happiness" to "truth"). We exude truths, we do not live by them.
That would be futile indeed.
In Western metaphysics, the word relative has specific meaning, that
is, not the common everyday meaning. Metaphysics is a form of Math as
presented by Russell. Logic must be adhered to, otherwise it is "just
whatever you want it to be". Words are operators in logic. A fuzzy
word is not too useful, as you can tell from the firestorm.
As you know from mindfulness, things do not have to be considered in
relation to other things. The divide between such things is a false
divide that stems from the SO view of the world. Here in MoQ we
understand that. It is the nature of what creates the appearance of
such separation that we are interested in. That, of course, is
Quality. Everything we can put into sq has qualities, and MoQ is an
sq ghost of Quality.
Thank you for the clafification in what you meant. (?).
