"What relation is there between the given cause and the revealed cause? The data, the there is, the problem of the neuter cause, and the fact God will be referred to in the neuter as indeterminatum, non datum.
But, to return to my htpothesis, if the feminine does not manifest itself as cause, it can engender no effects. And yet the maternal-feminine is also cause of causes. Does that mean that it too is an indeterminatum in this way? Insofar a it always lies behind the data. Behind that which is already determined in the chain of causalities.”
