The premises of these two schools (Kashmir Shaivism and Sri Vidya and kaula shaktism) are essentially the same: the infinite, omniscient, omnipotent, perfect consciousness limits itself to become the opposite of these attributes, though pre-eternally.
But aren't these traits inherent to Shiva/Tripura Sundari/Kali/whatever you call the supposed supreme reality? If they are accidental they can be lost, but if the divine is essentially both limited and unlimited, etc(I don't see how this doesn't break the law of the excluded middle and law of identity)then it can never reach Liberation because it is essentially limited too.
How can the essentially necessary supreme have accidental qualities anyway?
Any Advaitists who are not Shankaradvaitists (they have a whole different ontology and metaphysics)have any answers?
