Nous vs nouns

1. of a place entered, or of entrance into a place, into; and a. it stands before nouns designating an open place, a hollow thing, or one in which an object can be hidden:

 

after verbs of going, coming, leading, etc., εἰς is joined to nouns designating the conditional state into which one passes, falls, etc

 

Look at the above statement and change the word nouns to nous. See how nouns effects our life in a shallow locked in way (by adding an “n” to the word nous) to the physical realm. Watch what nous does (when you replace nouns with nous) and how it can show you where we should be spiritually and consciously rather than clinging to the physical. It gives way more meaning to our purpose in life.

Remember nouns are person, place or thing, the place and thing we (the person) needs to enter is nous and not nouns (anything physical) if we want spiritual understanding in its purest form.

That level of involvement represents how much spiritual amnesia a person might have. If the only step a person has taken back in the direction of GOD is even just a question like “does GOD really exist” and you never take another step to seek and find the answer to that question, most likely you might die or leave this temporary state of human life never getting past that question and full of worldly gains. This is just an example of an individual level. Another example might be you took the first step, GOD felts your true desire to want to know and gave a glimpse into the spiritual amnesia of his light that makes it all clear.
