Spiral and the spiral path as possible signification of individualization: Christian view
Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts - SASA, Belgrade
The process of getting to know yourself (Gnothi s'eaungton) is long lasting; it is also a process of individualization and/or deification. Gradual and troublesome separation of one(Self) from the outer environment and influence (Heidegger's concept of Self), searching for one(Self) as a Personality - on the way from an individual to personality - could be a little daringly called a spiral path. The spiral (Greek word) is defined as a curve (curved line, bent line, bend) consisting of a sequence of a growing number of bends around a point in a plane. This point can be also denoted as a hub (centre, focal point, core) or an axis, an imagined middle straight line around which a solid body revolves. In mathematics, the spiral is a curve in a plane which circulates indefinitely around a determined point. The spiral hyperbolically (relating to a hyperbole) represents a curve which, on the one side, gets indefinitely closer and closer to the point 0 (asymmetrical point), while on the other, it also determines the curve by the fact that the two, if continued, get closer and closer to each other but never meet. Doesn't this amazing image of an asymptote remind us of the Man-God relationship.
