“There are mysteries which men can only guess at, which age by age they may solve only in part.” – Bram Stoker.
I recall my Biology teacher in secondary school. He was quite a brilliant and respected man, and we learnt quite a lot from him, especially when we treated Reproduction. So you can imagine our awe and inquisitive consternation when he taught us that humans are 90% microbial but only 10% human and that the average human has over 100 trillion microbes in and on his body.
Now, let us reason together. Isn’t it a mystery that from the tiniest cell to the biggest star, there is perfect harmony, a rhythmically ordered movement as each performs its functions?
Just as the cells growing your toenails cannot comprehend your personality as Sunny or Temie beyond your toes where they operate, isn’t that how Man doesn’t understand life beyond his own sphere of experience?
Just as the cells and bacteria come together to form man, human beings and other creatures make up the earth, the earth and other planets make up our universe, the universes together make up the Cosmos.
Aren’t we all – cells, man, stars, galaxies – living in one indivisible whole body? If so, couldn’t the totality of everything, that one unified body, be the Almighty Father Himself?
Isn’t that why God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient, because He sees and knows everything at the same time since everything is Him and He is Everything.
Isn’t that why God is incomprehensible since man is but like a cell in His Body? (Can a tiny cell in your body comprehend the whole of you?).
My friend, ponder these things. I’ll see you tomorrow.
