"The jejune disjunction of the world into matter and spirit derives from an abstraction of the intellect and should not be projected back on reality; for it is the nature of the mind to establish differences, to make definitions and discriminate. To declare, 'There are distinctions,' is only to state that there is an apprehending intellect at work. Perceived pairs-of-opposites reflect the nature not of things but of the perceiving mind. Hence thought, the intellect itself, must be transcended if true reality is to be attained."
Heinrich Zimmer
Philosophies of India.
