A Particular Form with Infinite Content

Human personality, and therefore every individual human being, is capable of realizing infinite fullness of being, or, in other words, it is a particular form with infinite content. The reason of man contains an infinite possibility of a truer and truer knowledge of the meaning of all things. The will of man contains an equally infinite possibility of a more and more perfect realization of this universal meaning in the particular life and environment.
