你們（除了你們中最精細的心智外）從沒料想過「一件事可以同時既是對的也是錯的」；在相對世界(the relative world)裡，事情才是非此即彼的。在絕對世界(world of the absolute)——有時間/無時間——的世界裡，所有的事物即每一件事物。
Life evolved through a series of steps in the blink of an eye that you now call billions of years. And in this holy instant came you, out of the sea, the water of life, onto the land and into the form you now hold.
Neale: Then the evolutionists are right!
I find it amusing—a source of continual amusement, actually—that you humans have such a need to break everything down into right and wrong. It never occurs to you that you’ve made those labels up to help you define the material—and your Self.
It never occurs to you (except to the finest minds among you) that a thing could be both right and wrong; that only in the relative world are things one or the other. In the world of the absolute, of time-no time, all things are everything.
There is no male and female, there is no before and after, there is no fast and slow, here and there, up and down, left and right—and no right and wrong.
Your astronauts and cosmonauts have gained a sense of this. They imagined themselves to be rocketing upward to get to outer space, only to find when they got there that they were looking up at the Earth. Or were they? Maybe they were looking down at the Earth! But then, where was the sun? Up? Down? No! Over there, to the left. So now, suddenly, a thing was neither up nor down—it was sideways… and all definitions thus disappeared.
So it is in My world—our world—our real realm. All definitions disappear, rendering it difficult to even talk about this realm in definitive terms. Religion is your attempt to speak of the unspeakable. It does not do a very good job.
No, My son, the evolutionists are not right. I created all of this—all of this —in the blink of an eye; in one holy instant—just as the creationists have said. And… it came about through a process of evolution taking billions and billions of what you call years, just as the evolutionists claim.
They are both “right.” As the cosmonauts discovered, it all depends on how you look at it.
But the real question is: one holy instant/billions of years—what's the difference? Can you simply agree that on some of the questions of life the mystery is too great for even you to solve? Why not hold the mystery as sacred? And why not allow the sacred to be sacred, and leave it alone?
