The heavenlies are mysterious, and unseen. Unseen forces do spill over into what we see and understand all the time.
My dog hears our bug zapper pop when a gnat dies–and freaks out. He doesn’t understand what that snap is, and runs away.
What I don’t understand is how it works. I just know that when I turn it on, I hear it snap when it kill a fly. And I don’t care how it works.
But lots of people do know how it works. Some people design bug zappers. Some people design and manufacture the components. They all know, but my attention is focused elsewhere.
I could go to Youtube and find out, but I’m not interested. So the principles of the bug zapper remain unknown to me. (It just now zapped!)
A design team is working on a new model at this very moment. Somewhere. But I could die not knowing how the bug zapper works.
And that’s okay. I’m busy trying to understand my wife and help her to feel appreciated. Trying to help my friends. Trying to understand why people are the way they are.
To me they are more important than the science behind a bug zapper.
I am interested in the Big Bang and the Bright Star Caverns, and super interested in Yohanan ben Zakkai.
And I put those aside when my wife needs me for something. She’s more important right then.
