Sorry for the delay of my response; I don't have a computer and must visit the library once a week to use theirs.
Thought breaks everything into opposites; everything that can be thought of has an opposite. Identifying with one side of an interdependent opposite creates ego that attempts to destroy its opposite. When one can see this for a moment--not just think it--that everything has an interdependent opposite, then ego drops away, and that is religious experience.
For instance, you could say that god is the opposite of the devil, but the synthesis of these god/devil is religious experience. You can think of god or the devil, but you can't think of religious experience.
A sioux religious man, Black Elk saw this. He said, "Birds make their nests in circles for theirs is the same religion as ours." The circle is the resolution of opposites and represents the eternal, that which is outside the field of time.
