another philosopher takes a bolder stand. he solves the riddle of existence (sat) by simply asserting it to be “one” (ekam) that is designated by the wise in a variety of ways as agni (god of fire), yama (lord of death), or matarf^van (god of wind). a distinction is immediately drawn between a designation, a name or a concept, and the real. this again implies ultimate ivity independent of any activity of naming, designating, or conceptualizing, which inevitably involves human perspective. an understanding of reality is achieved only when the human perspective is completely left out.
