“Relationships” is a series of articles looking at the way in which concepts exist in relation to other concepts, and the way in which we exist in relation to those relationships.
[...] This is the only way it is mathematically possible that two different objects can combine to create a new object which will – at a ratio of 1:1 – itself be identical to one of the two objects that combined to create it. Half of children are male (one half of Mankind), and half of children are female (one half of Mankind). All children are male OR female, but all children are made from the bodies of male AND female (the whole of Mankind).
This is the beautiful system that allows Mankind to go forth and multiply. God made Mankind a whole of two halves (male and female). God did this by first making the whole of Man a whole of two halves (Y and X), and then making the whole of Woman (X and X) from one half of the whole of Man.
Man is Of God. Woman is From Man. By taking Woman out of Man, God simultaneously made a whole Man a half of Mankind. Man exists in relation to what has been taken from him. Woman exists in relation to what she has been taken from. Both Man and Woman exist in relation to the whole. God has given us the gift of being able to complete ourselves through reuniting the whole of which we are a half. In giving us two sexes – one that we are not, and one that we are – God allows us to know what we are not, and therefore know what we are.
