Incomprehensible Truths – Reality without Discourse
Like most children in elementary, secondary and high school, most of us were taught to learn, appreciate and recognize facts to explain the world around us, to prove hypotheses and to understand why things work or are the way they are. We have been conditioned to constantly seek cause/effect relationships, to conduct experiments, look for patterns and document results with the intent to demonstrate mastery over the unknown and likewise serve as examples of discovery.
This factual world we now live in, however, as fervently as it tries, still cannot explain nor comprehend certain “incomprehensible truths” that concretely and unequivocally exist for all to witness without mortal comprehension or explanation. Yet, as inexplicable as these events are to the human eye, mind and soul, they are profoundly “real”, critically “meaningful” and plainly “revealing” of the degree of Life we know little about, speak constantly to, yet absently avoid seeking to understand.
A dictionary definition of Incomprehensible is: “Incapable of being understood” and “Limitless, Boundless”
Everyday examples of “Incomprehensible Truths”:
- We’ve all first-person witnessed or heard about an individual on death’s bed or having been given “months to live” as a result of a terminal illness or prognosis. Yet, against all odds of recovery, miraculously is cured (healed) without explanation, reason or logic. Prayer is the most plausible explanation followed closely by Divine Intervention.
- Numerous articles documenting a person that has clinically “died”, many times for a lengthy amount of time that
reason and logic indicate should result in brain damage, severe complications or death; then, miraculously, has come “back to life”. Science has no answers, save a miracle. These experiences are commonly referred to as NDE’s (Near Death Experiences). In some cases, I’d call them DE’s (Death Experiences). In all examples, they could realistically represent the eternal life and/or the existence of a soul.
- Dating back to 330 B.C., Aristotle empirically concluded the Earth was a sphere, however, many other cultures did not truly agree with or support this “theory” until the late 17th century. Applied Geography and Astronomy were limited in scope, theory and consensus. Most people and cultures believed, as a result of limited knowledge and science, that the earth was in fact, either a flat disc or surface, resulting in the perceived fear of falling off or sailing off the “edge”.
- In 1895, Lord Kelvin uttered his now infamous quote, “Heavier-than-Air Flying Machines are Impossible” . Well, we pretty much know how that story ended… or more appropriately perhaps, began. Related topics include space flight, “light years”, and the Universe.
All of these examples illustrate the importance and presence of an independent variable, i.e., time. At the time or era specific to these comprehensions, this mode of thinking was considered an Incomprehensible Truth. It went without question or challenge that this is simply how the world works or the specific limits of our existence; at the time. Likewise, each example underscores the need for us to be Bold and question/challenge any or all facets of our life, existence, environment and thought.
In a converse approach, one of my Incomprehensible Truths is that each of us has a soul or spirit, unique as our fingerprint, that inhabits and controls our minds during each of our physical lives. At the moment of death, the soul separates from the physical body and continues to survive, or more aptly, live on into eternity. To the primitive limitations of the physical human senses, the separation of body and soul is indiscernible, inexplicable and to many, non-existent.
Out of sight, out of mind, however, has never been one of my mindsets. Each to their own and mine to me. I choose to believe in eternal life and a God of Creation as opposed to a singularly mortal or physical existence with a void at the end of it. That is the beauty of Free Will and the difference between human beings and other life forms.
