Continuing a look at the origin of reality...largely inspired and derived from George F.R. Ellis' brilliant brief book, BEFORE THE BEGINNING. He is NOT responsible, though, for the liberties I've taken with his logic or how I've chosen to illustrate it.


You can still have free will and yet be cowed by consequences and unmistakable survellience. God's hidden nature is needed to keep it from being coercion.


It's odd to think there enough non-human microorganisms within one, to match the stars in a thousand galaxies. That there are fifteen thousand such microorganisms within you--for each human being on Earth.


I've oddly, wondered how, say an intestinal fungi, if intelligent, would ever know "we" exist--even though we were literally everywhere around them?

It's sort of the fish/water conjecture. If something is all around you, all of the time, do you even see/notice it. We live in a situation where we have oxygenated air around us all the time, & we don't really think about it or notice it until it somehow gets disturbed or removed.
So it may be with a deity; something so always there that we never see, smell, hear, taste, understand of it, but its removal would be life threatening in ways that we cannot yet imagine.

Thank you for the thoughts.
