In the spirit of getting back on topic here is quote from a passage of St. Thomas' Summa Contra Gentiles. It seems to square pretty well with Eastern Orthodox theology.
"Now, in considering the divine substance, we should especially make use of the method of remotion. For, by its immensity, the divine substance surpasses every form that our intellect reaches. Thus we are unable to apprehend it by knowing what it is. Yet we are able to have some knowledge of it by knowing what it is not." (Summa Contra Gentiles, Chapter 14)
Seems like the EO idea of apophatic theology. Am I wrong?
