Great post, Elizabeth!
IMHO,,, the string theory is very close to what Castaneda calls; "The Lines of the World"... What some call "The Matrix",,, "The Grid".
It appears they all are trying to say the same thing.
IMH NAIO, "God" would be the Source of the energy required to create all that exists. To think there could be a mistake or error involved in this, is out of the question,,, there are no errors and "God" does not "change His/Her mind".
Shortly after humans were "created" we were "set-free",,, totally free and on our own. With this new freedom we were given an "open-line" of communication with God. But,,, it was left up to us to "activate" this line. Over the many thousands of years, humanity has lost this line of communication to a substitute we now call religion.
For those who find/reclaim this line of communication, it becomes a tool of indiscribable value. There are a few who have found at least a piece of this puzzle but I can feel that enlightenment of the masses is in the very near future. In this, David Lamond and I agree.
MHO comes from the teachings of my Dad. From reading books, I have found others who are similar,,, Steiner, Ouspenski, Jung and Castaneda,,, Castaneda being the simplest, not so wordy. I refer to these because they are available while the teachings of Dad are not,,, but I am working on that.
While there are rare cases where God "speaks" to people, we have very little "proof" of the reality of it.
For me, it means I have to "go-to-God" in order to communicate,,, not the other way around.
If God has emotions, He would have only one,,, LOVE. I can't accept the idea that God would stoop to the human level of other emotions.
