Bulgakov. Absolute Subject Category: Theosis …between created and uncreated…

God. Trinity. Absolute Subject
In the works of Vladimir Solovyov

12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face (πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον): now I know in part (γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους); but then shall I know even as also I am known (ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην). Phl 3:12. 2Ti 2:19.

The absolutely-extant which itself is not subject to any determination, determines itself by manifesting itself as the unconditionally-one through the positing of its 'other one', or its content, i.e., all.

The absolutely-extant which itself is not subject to any determination, determines itself by manifesting itself as the unconditionally-one through the positing of its 'other one', or its content, i.e., all: for the truly one is that which does not exclude plurality, but on the contrary produces that plurality in itself and yet is by no means changed by it, but remains what it is, remains one and thereby proves that it is unconditionally one — one, that is to say, by its very being, whose oneness cannot be taken away or destroyed by any plurality. If the one were such only because of the absence of plurality, i.e., if it represented a simple lack of plurality, and, consequently, with the appearance of the latter would have lost its character of oneness — obviously that oneness would be only accidental, and not unconditional; plurality would have had power over it, it would have been subordinate to plurality. The true unconditional oneness is necessarily stronger than plurality, excels it; it can prove or realize this superiority only by generating or positing in itself actually all plurality, and constantly triumphing over it: for everything is tested by its own opposite. In the same way our spirit also is truly single not because it would be deprived otplurality, but, on the contrary, because it manifests in itself an infinite plurality of feelings, thoughts, and desires, and at the same time always remains itself and communicates the character of its spiritual oneness [unity] to the whole natural element of the plurality of [its] manifestations, making it [that plurality] its own, belonging to it [to the spirit of man] alone.
