Well, the thing about stuff like that IMO is that it is mostly a matter of perspective, and the same thing can be described and understood in
When you start looking at the nature of soul and consciousness it's more of an understanding than something you physically "see". And if you have
an understanding of something, then you are able to express and see that in many ways and things.
I'm sure the father exists in all those stars and such, just as he exists here. And you can at the same time in a way call them "parts", just as
there are "parts" here. You can even think of people as individual thoughts of a bigger brain. All in all, these are all explanations of the
same thing. That we are smaller parts of something bigger. Giving the same basic understanding. And this is also how the father gives, in
understanding. Understanding is universal outside language. You can give numbers any symbol you want, but the understanding of adding and
subtracting stays the same. So when I listen to "other" theories, I generally listen and look for the understanding behind them, because that is
the actual truth. I find this to also be true in the bible.
The only distinction I make is between creation and creator. Between that which is bound to laws(creation) and that which creates the logic and such
for those laws (creator/consciousness). So while in the above someone in the "parts" explanation could IMO be wrong if they think the actual
"sun", "stars" and creation itself is what is being referred to, rather than the consciousness that exists throughout it. Soul/consciousness is
an individual "part" of the father, but the physical body etc is part of creation, aka "from the dust of the earth". So I make a distinction
between the 2, and I think genesis also makes that distinction, and we also see the father/son relationship with Jesus.
I'm not christian, I agree with Jesus, but do not see the same way Christians do.
