Widder's text to begin an exegesis. Firstly, here is where Aquinas
looses it:

'Although the truth of the christian faith exceeds the capacity of
human reason, truths that reason is fitted by nature to know cannot be
contrary to the truth of faith. The things that reason is fitted by
nature to know are clearly most true, and it would be impossible to
think of them as false. It is also wrong to think that something that
is held by faith could be false since it is clearly confirmed by god.
Since we know by definition that what is false is contrary to the
truth, it is impossible for the principles that reason knows by nature
to be contrary to the truth of faith. (Summa Contra Gentiles 1.7, in
Aquinas 1988:4)

The impossibility of confirming a precept held by faith seems not to
bother Aquinas here, but it does illuminate a central dilemma both he
and his successors face. The attempt to make philosophy a handmaiden of
theology calls for concessions on both sides, and it becomes impossible
to maintain a dual loyalty. The demand to be true to both reason and
faith ultimately undermines both. Hence as Nitzsche declares, the
christian god is killed by the christian will to truth
itself....Analogy and univocity emerge as the possible answers to the
problem of categories and are extended in one direction toward the
problem of individuation and in the other toward the relation between
god and his creatures. Here too, difficulties arise, since analogy
fails to account for individuation, while univocity threatens to
demolish divine transcendence unless strict limitations are imposed.
Ultimately, however, these limitations rest on the very faith that is
precariously tied to and supported by reason.'
(Widder, Reason and Faith: Aquinas, Duns Scotus, and Ockham, in
Genealogies of Difference, p. 115)

Aquinas looses it precisely where the signifier god is smuggled in to
represent the signified, which for the latter is thinking DNA forged
from the crusty lips of a volcano, thus killing by default the
signifier that goes with it. Aquinas in copula with both signifier and
signified corresponds to religion in safe copula with the State and
capitalism due to the habituation of theogonic reproduction (as per
Shults' Iconoclastic Theology). We are not arguing against replacement
of concept with percept, but are reinforcing Deleuze's project to
empower life in the wake of such violences already mentioned.

We must add Widder's passage on the middle term because of the
impossible trident and its perception: an Indigene can perceive the
trident correctly, though "civilized" humans may have more trouble. Why
is this so? Have you contemplated the Wiki page for the Impossible
Trident? One can insert Bernie Sanders' socialism or else something
like Widder's passage:

'....based on complex propositions such as "Socrates is white."
Nevertheless, judgment, which assigns predicates to a subject -- or
quasi attributes in the case of the divine, since a purely simple being
does not admit such an act of predication -- refers back to
apprehension as simple knowledge of being, and here there is no room
for analogy: between statements "god is [a being] and "socrates is is
[a being]" there can only be univocity or equivocity. Aquinas here
accepts equivocity, maintaining that reason can demonstrate god's
existence and analogically ascribe certain attributes to him but that
the divine being remains opaque. This move functions on the division
between essence and existence, and it forces Aquinas to admit that his
demonstrations of god's existence do not live up to stract Aristotelian
standards for demonstrative proof, which require a definition of the
thing in question -- that is, its essence -- as a middle term in its
syllogism.....To this Duns Scotus replies: "There is no point in
distinguishing between a knowledge of his essence and a knowledge of
his existence....For I never know anything to exist unless I first have
some concept of that which existence is affirmed." '
(Widder, p.125)

We are now in a much better position to forge concepts of abiogenesis
(see Wikipedia for Abiogenesis and the Miller-Urey volcanic spark
experiment) and the inorganic life that began there.
