Josef Zezulka – BYTÍ – EXISTENCE
A Philosophy for Life


There is the infinite and eternal Podstata. It is constant and unchanging; everything that exists has arisen from it. It is the homogenous (compact – uniform) fundamental idea, the fundamental existence, the fundamental and uniform term “I am”. Everything that we are able to understand as existence, and everything that we – as insignificant evolutionary beings – are not yet able to understand, is from it and in it. Let us accept our evolutionary imperfection and set ourselves free from the human foolishness that sees the human being as a perfect and faultless creature. Later we will say how imperfect the human creature still is and how much evolution still awaits him. Only with great modesty and humbleness we can bring our understanding closer to the eternal and great Podstata, which all the great cultures of mankind have been aching to comprehend. Each culture has named this with its own word that translates into our language as “God”. Only the conception of the Podstata varied between cultures. This conception differed according to the influence of time period, the level of perfection of the culture and its evolutionary forwardness. It moved from relatively well-perfected conceptions to naive views. We are only humans; this is why our understanding can be only of human kind – at our evolutionary level, which is not very high as people wrongly believe. Man saw himself as the sovereign creature of nature. Within his species he met people of little, higher or great wisdom. He understood that through numerous rebirths a being evolved towards greater perfection (ancient cultures were aware of reincarnation) and that’s why the word God meant the highest human intelligence and partial truth to him. It can be compared to looking around a landscape and seeing a horizon. There, the world ends for us and the sky begins. Those who do not go beyond the horizon and don’t see another would consider this horizon as finite.

It is eternity but we comprehend time. According to this we now find ourselves in a certain part of the Creative Work; in our period human intelligence is the highest. In the collective human being, human intelligence is graded up to the highest, which can no longer be incarnated and is the highest and the purest crystallisation of itself. This highest intelligence in its consciousness contains everything that is alive and what is evolutionarily below it. It is what man appeals for in his prayers and it is truly connected with him, with his fate as well as with the fate of the whole of creation. At the present time it is the highest authority.

Proceeding with our thoughts, we will reach the Creative Work, its timeless formation in which every thing we comprehend exists. Here, too, the highest consciousness of the Creative Work culminates, which is the collective consciousness of everything that is anytime and anywhere. It is the supreme consciousness separated from the Podstata, in this consciousness there is the realisation of everything that exists. This highest consciousness of the Creative Work is connected with it as for example a man is connected with his body. Everything that exists, belongs to this consciousness, and the consciousness is the supreme owner of all fatality. It is the supreme “God” of the Creative Work; it is another level of the highest intelligence.

Everything that exists has arisen from the Podstata. It is constant, unchanging, it is the highest concept of existence. While the Creative Work is just a manifest ation of its latent life, it is the Podstata. It is fundamental, the highest idea, the highest notion of existence and the highest notion of “God”.

I have described three aspects of God. They are not three separate Gods; we could see them in this way only within our perception. They are just components of the great Podstata, of the one fundamental deity.

The truth is as it is and not as people would like it to be. We all are at different levels of human evolution and that’s why we understand it differently. Now, we can only try to make our understanding as exhaustive, deep and logical in proportion to our zoological evolutionary species – Homo – as possible. I realize that full understanding is not possible as we are just human beings and that we can only deal with such problems from our limited human point of view.

A component – the nucleus of the Creative Work – separated from the great and infinite Podstata. Why did it separate? Everything that exists, as well as that which does not, is within the Podstata. It is hard for us to understand but be it to our comfort that lower creatures (animals) are able to understand even less than us. Since the Podstata includes everything, there is also life in it with the possibility of the aforementioned rhythm. It is in the state of peace, though, bound by timelessness. Perhaps this rhythm is the cause of the fact that from time to time (I mean unimaginably long periods of time) even time itself inflames and sets a pulse of life to work. Perhaps as an occasional exhalation of the Podstata, an ejaculation of a small part occurs which expresses itself as the Creative Work. It is possible that the breath of life that we observed at humans, on the planet, in the solar system etc. can sometimes, to certain conditions unknown to us, manifest its activity in a component of the Podstata, too. It is possible that in the Podstata, just as in the Creative Work, the law of analogy is valid. A human being can only approach the point where infinity and timelessness rule though he cannot yet enter.

A component was separated from the Podstata and this component was identical to the Podstata. In order to exist on its own, it divided itself into two fundamental parts. Thereby, duality arose and the basis of the Creative Work was laid. Those two fundamental parts are absolutely identical but each is at the opposite pole.

One part consists of material forces, or we can call it fundamental matter; the other consists of spiritual forces or the fundamental spirit.

The spirit and matter are one – the same mental substance – only in different manifestations. So now let’s analyse each component separately.

The material component was again divided into two poles. The first pole comprised centripetal and centri fugal forces; the second the forces of agitation and peace. Each of these parts was again divided into two parts and these forces disaffiliated. So here we have four parts of the fundamental material component, which include:

1) centripetal force that is manifested in the matter as solidity. It is manifested as solid, tough matter, scientists call it the “solid state” and should we speak about the natural elements, we would call it the “element of earth”,

2) centrifugal force which possesses the opposite character. It possesses the same patterns but of the opposite pole. With its centri fugality it is manifested as gaseous matter, directing outwards from the centre – diffusive. Scientists call it the “gaseous state” and should we again speak about the natural elements, we would call it the “element of air”,


3) the force of agitation, which is manifested in the matter as rapidly oscillating molecules – thus it is the heat force. By its character it is able to change the state of matter. From the natural elements it is introduced as the “element of fire”,

4) the force of peace, which again has the same patterns as the force of fire, but it is the opposite. It calms and slows the oscillation of molecules. It creates coldness and serenity; it is the “liquid state“ and among natural elements it is known as the “element of water”.
