In fact, even the "atheistic" Buddha of the Pali canon asserted a transcendent Reality that was unborn, unoriginated
, uncreated and unformed and in which we eventually could seek shelter if we obeyed a set of guidelines in the eightfold path.
Again, in Berlin: "Here, for thousands of years, the people of this land have journeyed from tribe to principality to nation-state; through Reformation and Enlightenment, renowned as a 'land of poets and thinkers,' among them Immanuel Kant, who taught us that freedom is the 'unoriginated
birthright of man....'" Thank you, Wikipedia.
he intended an answer that expressed the identity of the Son in terms of his eternal relation to the unoriginated

Therefore it will be much more accurate to denote God from the Son and to call Him Father, than to name Him and call Him Unoriginated

So Baba Kuhi and his fellow martyrs had a point; subjectivity can be projected onto something unborn, unoriginated

Both Word and Spirit relate back to the unoriginated
origin within the life of the divinity, and those who live in them both come forth from God and express the constant outflow of this love, now shown in human actions.
As we consider ourselves delimited selves, we go bout our daily lives in the context of a creator, even if we call that Nature; as we achieve moral excellence, we become something able to immerse ourselves in the unborn, unoriginated
, uncreated, unformed, and the alone returns to the alone.
