Pre-existing synthesis

[What he [Hegel] said was this. Let us no longer think in terms of antithesis [truth and error; doctrine and heresy]. Let us think rather in terms of thesis - antithesis, with the answer always being synthesis. In so doing he changed the world. -- reading Francis Schaeffer Escape from Reason. reconnaissance of the western tradition Frederick P. Kaffenberger III ]
Hegel: thesis -> antithesis -> synthesis
Isha Upanishad: That (synthesis) -> moves (thesis) and (+) moves not (antithesis)
