What is Possible?
What can we know?
With God all things are possible...
It's not that God breaks Natural Law to accomplish impossibilities, but rather that God has authored the Laws of Nature to permit achievements beyond the comprehension of our gestating and developing minds...
When good things happen that were thought by all observers to be impossible, we may rightly classify them as miracles.
Miracles transcend our overly simplistic understanding of the nature of this Creation...
They beg for us to expand our vision... to see with the mind's eye beyond the apparent surface of material things, into the energetics of how those 'things' become and behave... and deeper still into the angelic nature of God's thoughts that undergird all existence.
The only thing that we can truly know to be impossible is to know that any other thing is impossible.
On the flip side, while Truth is an absolute, we can only come to know it in degrees, according to received knowledge, and developed further by our experience, our intellect and our insight...
In science, for example, we can never prove a theory.
Theories are never true.
They are merely useful.
They are explanatory.
They are our cultural mythology... our origin stories...
And theories have their range of utility.
A 'theory of everything' that elegantly describes the precise mathematics of spatial, temporal and energetic interaction between two subatomic particles has no utility in the realm of human wellness or personal development.
My development of a Clinical Theory of Everything is an attempt to bridge the cavernous gaps between models in the various sciences in the service of the human domain.
To the extent that Clinical Theory helps to elucidate the most intractable and sometimes least asked conundrums at the forefront of both cosmology and quantum dynamics, my prayer is that it helps set the stage for a more coherent scientific mythology for this unfolding changing of the ages.
