A Western materialistic view of nature has an answer for difference but no real answer for the unity, law, structure and harmony we see in the universe. ... The Western picture of man as the product of blind, undirected chance and matter, while all around us is a universe that speaks of laws, of harmony and objects that behave according to order.
The West has no real answer for law, form, or structure. Yet the universe exists with law, form and structure. Why this should be so has no real answer in the equations of chance. Nature has her rules and you try to break them at your peril. (This is a continuation from yesterday.)
