~What if You Try to Prove to Aborigines that a City like LA Exists~ 2

    We need to change our previously held beliefs in order to appreciate what I'm going to propose. My contention is that God is a reality. Some may find it hard to accept that God is a reality. But as I've illustrated earlier ~ it is as difficult as convincing aborigines that a city like Los Angeles exists in the same world and the same reality that they inhabit. God is a part of the totality of the reality that we inhabit.

    The aborigines may visit LA within 10 to 12 hours any day. That is not really much too different from our distance from God.

    So, where does this God live, and how does It spend a day? Does the room that It lives in have furnitures? Is there a fan in the ceiling? What does It cook in Its kitchen? You see ~ these are all nonsensical questions. It's quite like the scenario of an African villager imagining the cockpit of a stealth bomber. First of all, he can't imagine it, without someone first giving him a hint about it.

    There are limitations when it comes to the question of what we 'can' imagine ~ and what we 'cannot'. Human beings can not imagine 'things' that are utterly alien to the environment and culture that they have been forcefully conditioned to. A Chinese manual worker can not imagine the kind of benefits and social insurances that we enjoy in Europe and in North America. They simply can not ~ the whole concept of social and monetary help coming from the state and government ~ is against the values and assumptions that they have been experiencing since childhood, and even earlier.

    Anyone who has spent their whole life near a desert will never imagine the possibility of the existence of a country like Jamaica or West Indies ~ one will encounter ocean whenever they move inside these countries and touch the border. The point is that we can not imagine the details of God's life until we experience It ourselves.

    The good news is that there are techniques to overcome these (perceptual) limitations.

    "I know this world is ruled by infinite intelligence. Everything that surrounds us- everything that exists - proves that there are infinite laws behind it. There can be no denying this fact. It is mathematical in its precision."

    ~ Thomas A. Edison

      I'm sure we are all waiting with baited breath.
