The capacity to be puzzled is the premise of all creation, be it in art or in science.
  --Erich Fromm, (1900-1980)

P.128 - §1 (12:0.1)  The immensity of the far-flung creation of the Universal Father is utterly beyond the grasp of finite imagination; the enormousness of the master universe staggers the concept of even my order of being. But the mortal mind can be taught much about the plan and arrangement of the universes; you can know something of their physical organization and marvelous administration; you may learn much about the various groups of intelligent beings who inhabit the seven superuniverses of time and the central universe of eternity.

P.1169 - §4 (106:7.5)  No matter how much you may grow in Father comprehension, your mind will always be staggered by the unrevealed infinity of the Father-I AM, the unexplored vastness of which will always remain unfathomable and incomprehensible throughout all the cycles of eternity. No matter how much of God you may attain, there will always remain much more of him, the existence of which you will not even suspect. And we believe that this is just as true on transcendental levels as it is in the domains of finite existence. The quest for God is endless!

Erich Seligmann Fromm (March 23, 1900 – March 18, 1980) was a German social psychologist, psychoanalyst, sociologist, humanistic philosopher, and democratic socialist. He was associated with what became known as the Frankfurt School of critical theory. Arriving in the U.S. during WWII, psychoanalyst Erich Fromm found that his theories conflicted with that of American Freudians. Fromm believed an individual's psyche was the product of society as well as biology. He particularly focused on effect of consumerism on a person's self-awareness. His books include Escape From Freedom, The Sane Society, and To Have or To Be.
