“THE GREATEST OF ALL THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF 20TH-CENTURY SCIENCE has been the discovery of human ignorance.” Lewis Thomas, Lives of a Cell. “OUR IGNORANCE, OF COURSE, HAS ALWAYS BEEN WITH US, AND ALWAYS WILL BE. What is new is our awareness of it, our awakening to its fathomless dimensions, and it is this, more than anything else, that marks the coming of age of our species.” Timothy Ferris, Coming of Age in the Milky Way.

Irreducibly Whole

Our paradoxical completeness refuses to resolve in favor of one pole of our being or the other. Absolute AND relative (universal AND specific) is our irreducibly whole nature. We are the impossible integration of the divine and the human, immortal and mortal. 

Long ago, a man named Yeshua was said to be both human and divine, or "spirit made flesh." But what else could anyone be made of? Play-Doh? 

Sometimes we seem to be critters, other times we seem to be immaculate space. In truth, we are beyond both categories---all-inclusive.
