immanence vs. transcendence
[ im-uh-nuhns ]
- the state of being inherent or exclusively existing within something: “Place” is a fundamental concept; it has evaded theorizing because of its immanence and omnipresence.
- the state or quality of a Deity exclusively existing within the universe, time, etc.: A horizontal axis stretches from God’s immanence in the world, on the left, to transcendence of it, on the right.
[ tran-sen-duhns ]
- the quality or state of being transcendent.
