Nice words Just Theory, They actually felt refreshing to read. We appear to notice some of the same constants in similar ways.
If you were to time lapse everything from an all seeing perspective, it would be the most beautiful image ever conceived. It would be a fractal...

And I will prove it.
God is known by the people as an entity not a person, now an entity can be a force like magnetism. Thing is magnetism cannot comprehend. People look for a God that can comprehend and understand so much more than us. Magnetism does not do that.

The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity. Buddhism answers this description. If there is any religion that could cope with modern scientific needs it would be Buddhism.
A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.
If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.
