Thank God it's in the nature of the universe that no matter how much you "know", or think you know, it only deepens the mystery to behold any of it the deeper in you go... we only get smaller in proportion to the vastness of what there is to be known. Arrogance is only possible to the ignorant. A rainbow can never be de-mystified. If knowing things closes the vectors on what you can imagine, then there is a problem: because Knowledge opens the vistas of the imagination. If something shuts those vectors down, it's not knowledge but something else....

Who could be more arrogant/ignorant than one who assumes he understands what is in the nature of the universe? And then also assumes it's god we have to thank for it?

The more I know the smaller I get. That much is true.

You're probably right.
I guess I learned from that quote.

I have no idea about the puppet strings reference.

"I think Islam has been hijacked by the idea that all Muslims are terrorists; that Islam is about hate, about war, about jihad - I think that hijacks the spirituality and beauty that exists within Islam. I believe in allowing Islam to be seen in context and in its entirety and being judged on what it really is, not what you think it is."

"I'm Muslim the way many of my Jewish friends are Jewish: I avoid pork, and I take the big holidays off."

"I've always said I'm the worst representative of Muslim-Americans that's ever existed, because I've been inside more bars than mosques."

"When you're brown and Indian, you get offered a lot of doctor roles."

"And so I look at all of you now, and know that you will surely pass on. Isn't it an amazing occurrence? Each and every one of us get to die. I believe it is an extreme privilege to live, and an even greater privilege to die."

Dying is the easy part, living with some class, not hurting our fellow beings, trying to make a positive change for our fellow beings, the earth and beyond is valiant unto itself and worth both dying and living for ~ me now

If all the volcanoes blow at once, will anyone really care about some oil spilled anywhere or an ice cap? ~ Me again

If not now, get there later, while it's still cool. :wink: 8)
