Universalist theoretical physicists, like Einstein and Hawking, have worked at developing a “grand unification theory” –
Combining cosmology (star theory) with quantum mechanics (particle theory)
Into a “Theory of Everything.”

But that wouldn’t really be everything, would it?
Since such a theory would be limited to “physical nature” – (defined by the Ancient Greeks as “physics”).

By omitting the subjective, a large segment of existence would be left out
Since physical space takes up just part of reality –
While consciousness, of course, constitutes the other part.

Neither “makes sense” without the other!

Physical space – from galaxies to particles – encompasses the objective part of reality –

While psychic space – including mental/emotional thoughts and sensations, ranging from a high of ecstasy to the low of an itch; spiritual realities – like “love,” “truth,” “justice,” and “beauty;” along with “meaning” itself; as well as all the “mathematical tools” we use to measure anything in physical space – whether galaxies, or even the entire universe, by employing humanity’s elegant silver equations – is equally an important part of reality, in its own subjective way.

(So which of the two do you think is the “greater”?)

In fact, isn’t it true that both are essential aspects of “ultimate reality” –

Moreover, these two aspects of reality appear to be not only inter-related,
But, in some senses, and from God’s deeper/wider perspective,
They might, actually, be the same thing.



Hindus tell us life is a dream
While, at Cal Tech, reality is conceived of as particles –
Relying upon these concepts, there appears to be no true reality –
Everything just a trick!

But, if we’re a dream, we’re certainly a real dream,
And if we’re particles, where, after all, did “love” and “truth” come from?

People worry about how a God who’s good,
Can permit suffering to exist –

But, really, isn’t it simply the price of freedom.

Existence is deeply magical – that is, “spiritual” –
And, ordinarily, even though we take it for granted –
We really shouldn’t.

Picture raindrops striking a window –
Are they dreams, particles,
Or tiny gifts from God?

Think about how everything
Is part of everything else –
So intricately interrelated –
If this weren’t true
The world couldn’t exist
And, really, would be just a dream
Or a bunch of particles.

We should be thankful for love, truth, and beauty
Each of which comes in almost infinite varieties –
Because, actually, they’re the only meaningful reality
That we’re ever going to experience.
