Mystery of Life

It’s been said that there are parallels between some religious or spiritual ideas or teachings and current theories of particle physics. An interesting thing about parallels, at least if we are talking about lines in space, or lines of thought, is that the two never touch or meet. Often the intention in citing the parallels is to offer a way to see them as in fact meeting, somehow. They will not ever meet however, as long as their objectives are different. It seems that science looks to see “what is there”, while spiritual traditions ask the question, “Who is looking?”
