The metaphysical apologia at least betrayed the injustice of the established order through the incongruence of concept and reality. The impartiality of scientific language deprived what was powerless of the strength to make itself heard and merely provided the existing order with a neutral sign for itself. Such neutrality is more metaphysical than metaphysics.
By: Theodor Adorno
In a deep metaphysical sense, all that is conditioned is illusory. All phenomena are literally appearances, the outer masks in which the One Reality shows itself forth in our changing universe. The more material and solid the appearance, the further is it from reality, and therefore the more illusory it is.
By: Annie Besant
