We need to realize a reality that is not remote because it is us, although not only us. We also perceive it by observing to the event horizon of the universe. Reality is within us and everywhere outside us and develops by transcending its earlier levels:
consciousness transcends unconsciousness;
self-consciousness transcends sensation;
development and transcendence continue.
Thus, reality is immanent, omnipresent and transcendent. Epithets applied to the supreme being in theism can instead be applied to being as understood by impersonalists and materialists.
