Re: Theos-World Universal Pattern?

Modern science is full of brilliant minds and daring extrapolations,
but so far as I am aware, except in some remote areas, scientists
have not accepted the reality of the spiritual world, that which
transcends the physical, as a subject of study. Until they do, it
seems to me that what we call science is primarily speculation, a
result of looking at a part of the whole picture and forming
theories about the supposed whole based upon that fragment.
I would be delighted to discover that I am mistaken.
