Topic areas


This paper presents a speculative understanding of reality where relationality is key. Moving from a triadic structure of Being, non-locality is found to be closely tied to relationality. Drawing from the importance of non-local scientific theories like quantum mechanics, relationality is presented as transcending the categories of Being. This, therefore, opens up the question as to how Being and Relation connect. Using the example of space and time it is suggested that the existential and relational worlds are united in us – spiritual beings with memory.
