Thus, the task is not so much to see what no one yet has seen, but to think what nobody yet has thought about that which everybody sees. - Schopenhauer

Imminent and Immanent

The term imminent does not mean immediate; neither does it imply a delay that can bring anxiety into fruition or become extremely frustrating, but denotes that the denominated development or event is within reach time-wise. Factors other than time would be the controlling ones, and delay can be inconsequential. The essence of the concept is that you don't wait for or worry about something imminent; you focus on the other factors that lead to it, deliver it or trigger it.

The term immanent denotes that the development or event is within reach tangibly or space-wise, that it is within and affects the regional domain of the individual in a material way. Something good happening in some remote part of the universe or outside of my personal domain that does not affect me in a tangible way is not immanent for me.

You are free to do what you want, but you are
not free to want what you want.
- Schopenhauer

Every human being has a natural, intrinsic and legitimate desire for goodness to be both imminent and immanent, within his personal time and space domain of experience.
