It is the construct behind it all, the design that it follows. Well through science we can predict evolutionary patterns. What will become of the human race?

So God for you then is like a blueprint?

Science is basically a study of the physical laws that our universe follows and of probability.

I have no idea what will become of the human race. Do you?

Who knows for sure, we will be building more towards travelling to outerspace, once we get a grip on the rest of the world. No more wars. Peace throughout the earth.

I would love to live in such a world.

>> If It can't be seen or heard, can it be otherwise experienced? If It just can't be experienced, then what possible reason do you have for suspecting such an entity's existence?

See, here again we've strayed back in to the habituated idea that we are somehow unqiue from all other phenomenon in the whole of existence. It can't be seen or heard or experienced because you are it. It is not approachable any more than one can turn around and see the back of his own head.

It is as if the great divine is a small child who has set about playing a game of tag with itself, and has forgotten that he is the only one playing.

"You're it!"

Buddha never, ever spoke of this, because it's this recognition, when embraced by a culture, that leads to the suffocating effects of theism. Buddha realized that each and every individual needs to attain liberation of their own accord, and not through adopting other people's articulation of the experience of liberation. The moment we condense liberation in to a series of concepts, we have missed the mark. Buddha, knowing that enlightenment must remain ineffable, made every effort to prevent his teachings from attracting a traditional doctrinal following. Although this is an effort to delay only the inevitable, I feel that we can see how Buddhism is far less dogmatically "sticky" than the other major religions.

I completely agree with what you wrote. I think you may have misinterpreted my post.

It can't be seen or heard or experienced because you are it.

In that case wouldn't it be more accurate to say that it can't NOT be seen or heard or experienced, since it is reality itself?

Seems like both are true. It is not approachable, because to approach it to conceive self as seperate from it, and it is not escapable, because it is impossible to be anything other than what you are being. This isn't really a satisfying conclusion, because it renders our entire discussion a maddening exercise in superfluity.

...and that's the ghost that's got us all spooked.
