Hi JN, The book was written

Hi JN, The book was written in 1914 but the thought is timeless. Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, etc the age of reason has ruled for 400 -500 years, it has explored all that is possible to explore via the senses. But there comes a point where you as that explorer need more than milk, something a little more substantial like bread to help feed the bottomless pit that is ever craving more... what we see is the evolution from the Classical Physics to a more contemporary, energy based Physics (Quantum Physics) Where matter looked at little closer (not with our physical senses) resembles energy.

David Bohm, Fritjof Capra are some pioneers that use the synergy of Quantum Physics \ Mysticism to benefit both sides of the equation (Materialists and the Mystics). Einstein wrote of 10 dimensions most of which we cannot experience with or normal senses.

We're all in it together, the key is that God will quicken us, lift us to a higher power, if we allow it, He\she is the quantum power within each of us and throughout creation.
In the end we are both discussing love or lack of from two perspectives. Both are correct, you see a lack of love in the world as most others agree.

But maybe the difference is in how we deal with this lack of love in the world? Mystics allow God to work via them versus the Materialists who try to tackle this problem by themselves. Both will see results but God is the difference that makes us fearless, unmoveable, a house on a strong foundation. Jesus was the perfect man, we aspire to be like him, in the hope we can bring change to the world as he did through God's grace.

JN, i learned a lot from your posts, as did others im sure. Keep reading the books in this forum and it will water the seed inside you.

Take care, your friend,
