Sketches on Divinity and Infinity

This isn't a fully formed post*. It's just a quick place to throw a bunch of thoughts that I think are related to something more considered, fleshed out and edited.

“God is the name we give to the things we don't know how to explain.”--me, 2008

“God is the name we give to the science we don't understand. Science is the name we give to the God we don't understand.”--Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience, 2013 (per Goodreads)

I'm not sure the Maraboli quote is accurate since it would make a lot more sense if it were “God is the name we give to the science we don't understand. Science is the name we give to the God we don't do understand.” But I could be wrong.

I don't know Maraboli (Dr. Maraboli) -- he appears to be a writer of inspirational, motivational, spiritual and/or philosophical books

* This means that most of the other posts are actually fully formed. Yikes, right?

I find the number π (pi) to be perfect, possibly divine. It doesn't repeat out to trillions of decimal places (thank you computers!)! It's transcendental (I don't understand that well enough to explain it but it's a thing)!! The digits are random and normally distributed!!! And it's a homophone for pie!!!!


Then there was a bad ass crop circle which turned out to represent the first 10 digits of π... bad ass!!!! Details here.
