"The universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine."
- Sir Arthur Eddington
IN JIM'S WORDS...
When I retired to the woods of South Carolina I wanted to experience a passion similar to those who built Stonehenge - strong enough to inspire me to move mega-ton boulders halfway across England. That is to say, I retired with an agenda. “Okay God, it’s you and me. No structures No restrictions. No theology. No holds barred. Twenty-four hours a day. You are my only passion. You say you like a challenge? Bring it on!” Like Jacob of old who wrestled with God, I had one prayer on my lips: “I will not let you go until you bless me!”
Imagine my surprise when, in a totally unexpected way, God answered and did just that!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"The most beautiful emotion we can experience is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of all true art and science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead, a snuffed-out candle. To sense that behind anything that can be experienced there is something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is religiousness.”
