I have come to believe that the Truth with a capital “T” cannot understand itself with certainty in a complete and consistent system that could call itself “enlightenment.”
However, the Truth CAN experience itself via intuition and intuition doesn’t use logical thought. Thus an alligator with a stomach full of raw duck can intuit the Truth just as much as me.
Maybe better. They have outlived a LOT of dinosaurs yo.
