- Developed the power of reason through philosophy and science.
- Constructed scientifc models able to describe some of the natural world in terms of chains of cause and effect.
- Cause-effect relationships between entangled quantum particles occur independently of space and time. For example: consider two entangled spinning electrons, one in your brain and one in the Big Bang 13.8 billion years ago and 13.8 billion light years from Earth. If one changes its direction of spin so will the other, instantaneously.
- The universe originated from beyond space and time, which means outside of all natural laws we can ever know about – i.e. it originated supernaturally. This is a truism in cosmology.
- The end point of the creation event is conscious beings concerned about love, justice, truth, destiny and beauty.
- We still don’t know what life is. What is it in an organism that sustains the myriads of molecular processes even as the molecules themselves are continually replaced or damaged? See also 'ET life: what are we searching for?'
Yet as in the early days of humanity, we should be confronted with deep mystery; but instead of myriads of competing pagan gods, which had their place in the ancient world and still give us insights into the human condition, spiritual evolution has taken us to discover that it all comes from one monotheistic Creator.
