""Imagine the number 1. This 1 could never know itself in its capacity as 1, the indivisible, without its reflection which is the extenstion of itself, the number 2. the 2 contains the 1, without the 1 it could not be. Only now does 1 comprehend itself as 1 by reflecting itself in the 2. By recognizing itself in its reflection, which is 2, the 1 becomes an understanding of itself which is 3. The Absolute, or God, is all-encompassing, Is All-There-Is. What is all-encompassing can have no opposite. It is the ONE. The ONE needs to reflect its SELF in its SELF to know its SELF. Thus it creates an extension of its crystal SELF, the Christ SELF, to gain cognition of itself in its reflection. What reflects must receive the image first which it is to reflect. Thus the son of God is born, the Christ-SELF.""
