You make things too complex. Thinking thinking thinking will deplete 
you. Such a conundrum as stated below is like a genie in a bottle. 
It is always between oneself and ones "God". What is between comes 
out in the conscious ACT as an actice FORCE. This is why the human 
hand is a symbol of Jesus Christ. You people will talk talk talk till 
death comes and gets you with his grinning skull and bones. There is 
no bread-th to this. Will you never stop? Wry
