Essenceism towards idealism and materialism
These two philosophical directions: idealism and materialism are fighting an eternal struggle. For many, this struggle boils down to a conflict between religion and science, sometimes even between faith and knowledge. Hundreds, maybe thousands of different philosophical theories have been created within each of these directions.
Essenceism is neither idealism nor materialism. Of course, the claim that there is a "spiritual" First Cause brings him closer to idealism. However, essenceism proclaims that the two basic "sources" of the Creator, that is, His Energy of the First Cause, which is the eternal source of matter and His Personality in the form of His Intelligence of Will and Emotionality, are one. None of these "sources", either material or primary, as well as those representing thought, or causal spirituality, is more important. Materialists claim matter is the first and the secondary spirit, while the idealists put the spirit on the first, causal place. Therefore, due to the equality of spirit and matter in essenceism, it cannot be classified into one of the two mentioned philosophical directions. The previous sentence indicates that neither spirit nor matter can claim a right to any precedence and advantage over one another. In the First Cause, both "material" and "spiritual" are equally important, necessary, and completely integrated, that is, creating an unbreakable unity.
Essenceism is a new system that treats the realm beyond time and space as a reality surrounding the entire universe and penetrated by the Personality of the First Cause. The same applies to the spacetime of the universe, although its penetration through this Personality is indirect in the form of the laws and principles existing there.
