Human wisdom is not truth and beauty, because man is not omniscient.
But the Wisdom of God is essentially Truth and Beauty, because God’s
wisdom is like the Sun, while man’s wisdom is like the image in the mirror which is not real and depnding on the condition of the mirror.
I don’t know this Reality; I only repeat the Teaching of the Prophet.
The real problem is that man cannot conceive perfect wisdom;
we understand things relatively and we dispute back and forth
depending on our relative positions.

The Bab prays:
“Thy might beareth me witness, O my God, what befitteth Thee is far greater and more exalted than any being could attempt to accomplish. Indeed nothing can ever comprehend Thee as is worthy of Thee nor can any servile creature worship Thee as beseemeth Thine adoration. So perfect and comprehensive is Thy proof, O my God, that its inner essence transcendeth the description of any soul and so abundant are the outpourings of Thy gifts that no faculty can appraise their infinite range.”
