An aim is something one has to achieve. The Russian word for aim, “tsel’”, consists of “tse” and “l’”. “Tse” means “this”. El (“l’”, or “el’”) is a root pervasive in languages of Europe and Asia as it denotes the higher or the divine. Therefore, an aim points to a higher entity that needs to be reached. An aim does not involve anything low or less than godly. For example, to kill the enemy that is threatening one’s people and the culture of one’s Rod has a divine meaning necessitating the act. By contrast, to kill a nagging fly cannot be called an aim since the act does not enhance or support the divine entity, but, instead, is driven by a wish — a personal entity. Similarly, to make a lot of money is one’s personal wish, not an aim. An aim is only something desired by the Heaven or a higher world entity, connecting with which helps one to set an aim. An aim requires one to perform a feat and sacrifice oneself. Fulfilling a wish, meanwhile, not only requires no self-sacrifice but is also relaxing and enjoyable. By distinguishing between an aim and a wish, we understand which of the two forms the basis of our decisions. It is also important to distinguish between a wish and a need based on the necessities of life, rather than on pleasure. A need, a wish and an aim represent the three realities a person lives in: the external, the internal and the higher.
An axiom is a self-evident statement — that does not need to be proved. In Ancient Greek, “axioma” means “honour, dignity, something worth honouring, credible, indisputable, and generally accepted”. In other words, it is a statement indicating that the one who makes it is either telling the truth, affirming it with his honour and dignity, or telling about what is worth honouring in itself, or telling about what has been affirmed by a circle of people who are respected and have honour and dignity. In the modern world, an axiom is only considered something agreed with by “the majority”. However, there are two problems associated with relying on the “majority”. First of all, “the majority” consists of individuals with uncertain qualities. Secondly and even more importantly, society is a multiple phenomenon, dark and absorbing, rather than emitting, which is why it is unable to emanate the truth and affirm the existence of something. Therefore, the fact of being generally accepted cannot be a sign of the truth. At the same time, a true statement or a statement about the existence of something can be made by an individual whose honour and dignity are not doubted by the relevant circle of people; especially, if this person, expressing his vision (a theorem) which explains certain life phenomena, builds his arguments logically, or coherently.
