The non physical part of our existance
Our existance can be divided into the spiritual and physical realms. All faiths or religions try to concentrate on the spirtiual asspect, however does that view agree with the world around us, has always come into how I view them as anything more then a moral code. Most of Christianity denies evoloution, denies the possibility of life on other planets, and stresses that the spiritual outweighs the physical when the two disagree. The Buddhist description that form is emptiness, and that form is based on conditions, to me describes the conditions we now accept in science. The molecule of Oxygen, that I inhaled yesterday that became part of my blood. This was then was incorporated into my body, used to create the energy I am using to type this. It will become part of my bodily wastes in the near future, be expelled, decompose and released into the soil or water, and perhaps become vapour. The vapour may become part of a cloud that rains on a crop in Alberta, and then taken up as part of a grain in the future.
