The emptiness and transfiguration: spiritual or existential

04 Aug

The transcendence of Kant and all idealism is nothing but the existential TransfiguraçãoJesusnegation of the object, or we would say in Husserl’s reasoning the object-in-the-world, his worldhood, but what happens in this variation between my perception and the world?

According to Husserl, the objects of the world come from various perspectives (Abschattungen), so a chair before me can be apprehended under various variations of profile (Abschattung).

In order to apprehend according to epoché, the object must be subjected to the various possible variations of profile in order to grasp the essence of that same object, that is, what remains unchanged in it, and this is its phenomenological reduction (epoché) or a debug of the phenomenon in order to reach the object with total evidence, the essence of the phenomenon, that is, its eidos (whence the modern idea came), but this variation is objective and subjective at the same time, this is called the ” .

We then come to epoché, to make a complete emptiness using the transcendental reduction, where we plunge into a state that may seem a loss of consciousness of the real world, but instead of making the phenomenon more problematic, by re-presenting the phenomenon transcendentally, It is more conscious, more evident. In the biblical passage of the transfiguration, where Jesus appears “transfigurated”, the apostles wanted to stay there because of the “eidetic” world.

Next we present the beautiful picture of Giovanni Bellini that represents the figure, we see the Trinity having Jesus in the center and two more figures Because the idealistic reason is incapable of becoming truly eidetic, that is, seeing the same person in three profiles, and more serious, one human, one extremely divine and happy the third is neither a dove nor a fire But another human figure, the Renaissance Bellini was not yet an idealist (see a peasant in his normal life), but there was still the dualism of heaven and earth, the apostles wanted to remain there.

But Jesus wants to descend from Mount Tabor and Back to earth: The gospel of Matthew says that Peter thought they were three biblical people, saying, “Peter answered and said, Lord, it is good for us to be here. If you wish, I will make three tents here: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah. Peter was still speaking, when a luminous cloud covered them with his shadow … came a voice saying: This is my beloved son … “, human and transcendent, needed councils to establish the divine and human nature of Jesus.

The Trinity is still ‘hidden’ for those who only deify or humanize subjects and objects, then the ‘relational world’ remains complicated, this is the cultural and spiritual crisis of the modern world, ner subjects neither objects, this is existential nihil.
