So what, I have to look up “Emanant” vs “Immanent”?
I don’t know why it’s necessary to do
Either Emanationism OR
“Emanationism is a transcendent principle from which everything is derived, and is opposed to both creationism (wherein the universe is created by a sentient God who is separate from creation) and materialism (which posits no underlying subjective and/or ontological nature behind phenomena being immanent).”
But that still leaves the problem of the universe being lesser… and I don’t see what that’s necessary.
There’s got to be some reconciliation possible.
