    As for modern science, your faith in it also suits you. This was once considered modern science.
    science allows for it to correct itself.

    To clarify further - if there does exist a metaphysical pantheistic concept, then it is so intertwined with physical existence as to be considered a constant, such as c.

    if there is a metaphysical realm the only way you could document it would be in some objective fashion. thats why we don't believe in ghosts or ESP. Until something is documented it's noting more than delusion or sensation.

    I think of things like this:

    Our brains are composed of networks of neurons and our thoughts are chemical interchanges in some fashion inside our brain. Everything we are and experience takes place inside our brains and yet you would be hard pressed to capture a consciousness simply by analyzing the physical structures. In a real way, even though consciousness is detectable and perceivable in some way, it also lacks reality. Just as a Word can exist as an idea held in our collective minds and yet not exist. Ideas exist and exert power in the physical world. Is it possible a god-like consciousness exists as a pattern that emanates in some fashion within the structure of reality much like a thought or idea? To me, while it is tied to the physical world it is also highly metaphysical.

    I guess this all goes back to Platonic duality. Idealism.

    Document, capture, and explain the feeling of Romantic love.

    BTW, i had to edit my above post
    and i'm not even going to bother comparing
    a basic emotion like love or jealousy
    to an unproven idea like "heaven"
    or ESP or ghosts

    Does Romantic love exist? Is Love just a chemical transmission when you want to fuck someone's brains out?
