Heavenly Hieroglyphics

Heavenly Hieroglyphics

Potency is always enjoined with the elements.
The universe is pure act,
it only seems to be chunks of things.

DB - The Vagabond

They say that nothing travels faster than the speed of light, We really don't know if that is true since we can't see things that travel faster. Some scientists claim that it is possible and are theorizing and experimenting with it. I heard a lecture by one who claims that the black holes in outer space can't be seen because the elements within them are moving faster than light.
They also say that everything we see is constantly in motion, if it weren't we couldn't see it. Then are there things around us we can't see? There are some scientists attempting to render something invisible by deflecting light away from it. So far they have succeeded is making it transparent. It still reflects ultraviolet light.
We know that there are sounds the human being can't hear. The overtones extend into the outer space of Sonics. They say the stars and planets make sounds we can't hear.
If there are things we can't see or hear but other creatures can, then we are surrounded by an invisible universe. Why does your cat stare so intently where nothing seems to be. Why does the dog growl at nothing in particular? When I tried to play my violin, my dog would howl as if he was trying to sing along. But what if he was only hearing the overtones and responding to them? Why does the wolf howl at the moon? Maybe it's not the moon but the sound the moon is sending out.
We can understand and utilize the law of gravity, but so far as I know no one has uncovered the metaphysics of gravity.
Those scientists who are trying to make something invisible may succeed, but one of the fascinating things they found was that even though it can be rendered transparent, its shadow is still there. Are we living with shadows, both visible and audible of things we can't perceive?
There is a Psalm that reads "He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." Is it possible that there is a fundamental deity, a principle of existence, invisible but for its divine shadow under which the entire universe dwells?
These are some of the questions I ponder. I don't have many answers, but I have a lot of questions. I defer to the scientists, theologians and philosophers for their expert theories and opinions. But nobody can stop me from thinking.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, be your own best company.
