Do you mean to define what it means to be absolute, or to define something that I personally believe to be absolute.

Proving that acceptance of acceptance is absolute is a personal affair. You must prove it to yourself, the finger pointing at the moon is not to be confused with the moon itself.

That's the Liar's Paradox, and makes no rational sense, but I kind of agree (on a more broad, less specific, level).

Everything that is is absolute. Things often are not true in absolutely all circumstances, but things that are true are absolutely true in their circumstances. It is absolutely true that there is existence outside of myself.

From the thread, https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2102" ...

Originally posted by wuliheron
Some materialists like to assert that all we have is human perception of existence, but when we perceive the ground of our own being it is absolute. The world may not be flat as once was thought common knowledge, but I exist and my knowledge of my existence and participation in existence is absolute and irrefutable. I can pretend otherwise, but it is just a pretense.
And the "journey" begins ...
