It's a metaphor...both unicorns and god have ZERO objective evidence behind them.
I understand, I have questioned, I have had doubts, but experiences make me lean towards believing.
It all boils down the the experience. It is a personal and inward journey.
That's why I should have kept quiet.
Plotinus sixth Ennead
The soul always leaves something of itself above.
Have we just forgot our divine origins, and have run away from the source?
Retrace the path from which we came and in so doing learning to know oneself, and so to know god.
Isn't that also what Science is all about?
The most beautiful and deepest experience a man can have is the sense of the mysterious. It is the underlying principle of religion as well as of all
serious endeavour in art and science. He who never had this experience seems to me, if not dead, then at least blind. To sense that behind anything
that can be experienced there is a something that our minds cannot grasp, whose beauty and sublimity reaches us only indirectly: this is
religiousness. In this sense I am religious. To me it suffices to wonder at these secrets and to attempt humbly to grasp with my mind a mere image of
the lofty structure of all there is.
