FACTOR # 29. In the opinion of the viewpoint, any beingness, any thing, is better than no thing, any effect is better than no effect, any universe better than no universe, any particle better than no particle, but the particle of admiration is best of all.

The viewpoint represents the beingness. The beingness is essentially the evolving configuration of dimension points. From completely objective viewpoint no difference is seen between the beingness, as observer, and the dimension points that are being observed.

As the viewpoint narrows toward subjectivity, the dimension points are increasingly replaced by opinions. The beingness of opinions, as observer, then appears separate from the dimension points that are being observed.

The opinions are always something about something. For opinion to be there, it cannot be about nothing. Hence, there is always some beingness as cause, effect, universe, etc. But among all these the most favored is admiration, because admiration is the effort to appreciate dimension points as they are.

KHTK FACTOR # 29: For the viewpoint to be there, beingness must also be there. Thus, there must always be some cause, effect, universe, etc. The most favored of these is admiration, which is the appreciation of things as they are.



True admiration of things arises from the objectivity of viewpoint. This is favored instinctively as it bring about clarity.
