I suspect, that in quantum physics, the role of the observer, which collapses the wave function and brings the realm of possibilities into the form and shape of our world, also has something to do with conscience, with the manner in which we observe, the eyes through which we see. The world’s various religions and philosophies help us to rethink and regroup, to achieve a paradigm shift when we’re ready. One doesn’t have to be a Christian to appreciate this story, actually, that’s the point, it’s the point that transcendence of religion, often through religion, is the fulcrum of nonviolence, and, paradoxically, it is the mysterious foundation of original Christianity, though most Christians are harmfully oblivious to it.
Somewhere, buried deep in the teachings of Jesus is the doctrine of radical nonviolence, it’s undeniable, and though traditional Christianity has fought long and hard to cover it up, it will never be able to fully do so. The story of Joshua Casteel, is a classic example of a warrior Christian, indoctrinated in the culture of state sponsored violence, who has a moment of truth, who remembers the deeper truths of his birth religion, while interrogating a jihadist at Abu Griaib. It’s a story for the ages!
