The Absolute Perspective is That There Is No Absolute Perspective

By Adam J. Pearson

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.
