Anekanta: The Third Eye: [04.03] Third Eye 1 - Truth The Third Category

When the third eye opens, the existing does not remain the truth, the non-existent does not remain the truth, but a third category comes into being which is a unison of both existence and non-existence. Some say an object can be described, some say it cannot. Some say that a certain thing can be said while some others say it cannot be said. One philosophical view believes that one can describe an object verbally and another believes that one cannot describe an object verbally.

Truth is always inexpressible, indescribable. Truth cannot be spoken. But it cannot be without words either.

Another person says what is truth if it cannot be spoken? Truth should be expressible. One eye sees the verbal expression and the other the inexpressible. When the third eye is opened then everything is neither expressible nor inexpressible, it is both expressible and inexpressible. This is the truth. Without opening the third eye of anekanta we cannot solve philosophical matters or practical matters. Today's science has posed many problems and their possible solutions and man is engrossed in them. Without anekanta we cannot find their solution either.
