As science progresses, we prove to ourselves more and more: We know effects, but not cause. We describe our world in increasing precision, but come no closer to understanding why it is the way it is.

What is gravity? What is electricity? What are these forces that hold atoms together and why do they work the way they do?

The scientist who pretends to answer such questions is more than helpless—he is outside of his field. He might as well be a doctor voicing an opinion concerning the movement of the stars or an astronomer prescribing medicine. Science describes these things with great precision, yet it does not have the tools to know their essence. Neither does it claim to, because there simply aren’t any.

Human consciousness is approaching a great realization: That beneath the veneer of order and finitude lies a cause beyond mind.
