The Concept of Mul’s essentially means Thing Itself and has Principle of Being that is the Cause of Yu-Mu. Being Itself is the Principle that lets the Mul be in existence, and then the Concept of Mul’s is to be formed. SaMul classified from Mul means all Phenomenon. Defining the SaMul that has Universality-Li, could set all Thing to be in objectivity. Setting objectivity of object up means that Universality-Li is the subject of all Thing. Recognizing this Universal Idea is to know SangDal that interprets the Li of Mul such as Sa and Beop-Chik. Hence, The Li would become DoRi of the SaMul as Principle of Individuation, Each Mul having its Beop-Chik as DoRi is to be manifestation in an orderly way. This means that all Thing have its the Li-Chi in Common. The Relationship of Sa and SilChe is to know SoDangYeon and SoIYeon. Establishing SoDangYeon-Li is to be the Directing Point to understand the Reality of things. To know SoIYeon-Li is to know the Utmost Cause of all Thing. GyeokMul is to recognize the immanent Principle of things with the objective cognition on the Phenomenon. MulGyeok is the MulAILChe that the Principle of Mul is coming by itself in every situation. This is the Utmost Stage that is the One of Subject and Object. Therefore, if the Principle of Mul comes up, it is the Ji of Mine.
Mul, Li, Sa, SilChe, GyeokMul, MulAILChe
