Re: Words like God and Ki

I remember a high school science experiment where objects were sealed in a box. You were allowed to do anything to the box (weigh it , shake it, etc) except look inside (no x-rays, mri, catscans, etc) to figure out what was inside the box. Then you were to write a description of what you thought was in the box based on what you did to the box.

Of all the students in the science class no two people's description were the same and no body described exactly what was in the box

I look at things like God and Ki the same way. There is something there. We can't see it. We form an explanation based on what we do to the box it is in. Then we argue about what is in the box.
