“The world is an ordering concept

“The world” is an ordering concept: it helps me to organize my thoughts about the all. “The universe” is an ordering concept; so is “The whole” and even “I” and even “God.” Here I organize my thoughts and meanings around my experiences.

My metaphors then are not right or wrong, they are just mine, because my experiences are mine and not yours. The same for yours or that theologian’s, or any other person’s. Still the most particular is the most universal.
