The absolute perspective is that there is no absolute perspective. The ultimate perspective is that there is no ultimate perspective. This very perspective is relative; Adam Pearson held and expressed it some indefinite time ago in a room in Greenfield Park, Quebec, Canada in the year 2012.
The very nature of ‘perspectives’ implies relativity. A perspective is a view from a given position, a view from a point, a ‘point of view.’ For that reason, there can be no absolute perspective; a perspective is always relative to something, whether it be an organism, a location, or a context.
There is no perspective that depends on nothing outside of itself to exist. A perspective can always be traced back to something and that something is the key to its relativity.
Though ideologies may try to hide their relativity behind the mask of ‘self-evident truth,’ they cannot erase it; if you dig deep enough, you’ll come up against the hidden relativity that shines through the cracks of the apparent absolute.
