summary

The human person having a soul, has the faculties of intellect and will. The human intellect seeks to know the truth. We don’t like 1 + 1 = 3. We know its wrong. We are happy with 1 + 1 = 2. Our intellect rejoices in the truth. My intellect has an infinite horizon. I am capable of having knowledge of infinity itself. I can imagine the whole universe. I can imagine things beyond the universe. I have the intellectual capacity for ultimate truth and I keep wondering about the causes, perfections and ends of things. My intellect will not be satisfied until I have attained to such knowledge. God is the infinite truth that my intellect is seeking. My intellect will ultimately be satisfied only in God himself.
