We are representatives of the One Above. And as such, we live as two opposites at once:

We are not beings for ourselves. We are but agents of that which is beyond us.

Yet we must be freethinking, independent beings—because to represent the One Above, we must have our own will and our own sense of being as He does.

And if you should say, “But this is an impossibility! Two opposites in a single being!”

Yes, you are correct, it is an impossible paradox without resolution.

Which is why this renders us representatives of the Impossible One Above.
