So, in the 1980's, I was studying earth history in university. As i was raised in a literalist Christian setting, it became quickly obvious to me, how there were two positions on the age of the earth. My upbringing said "the Bible says the earth is 6000 to 7000 years old, because the bible says… Continue reading Assumptions – 1

Oceanic Awareness as an explanation for everything which Exists
Is there a system in everything we see?Scientists fear this question, because if they say yes, then the religion folks jump on them and say that the system is some sort of intelligent design(er).... ie.

Quantum Monism seems to be some scientists method of saying that there is an underlying system to the universe(s??) The struggle of western science with admitting an underlying system, is… Continue reading Quantum Monism – Aha!!
Expanding our concepts of “God”
Below is the world view which i have concluded (for myself) is the way to see ourselves and our relationship to ourselves, each other, the universe, and Oneness: "Home" is “located” inside of "me", and inside of all beings and things, while that being has breath; while that thing has mass, and is in space… Continue reading Expanding our concepts of “God”

The Universe is a family and its parent is the Great Essence
There are no outside conditions that can make or break our connection to the center of the everything. Every thing in the universe is connected to the center JUST AS IT IS. Just as all parts of the tree are connected to the roots.... the roots are the tree, the bark is the tree, the… Continue reading The Universe is a family and its parent is the Great Essence
