Blogging my thoughts for 27th of March, 2014 by Peter Krey
“Restore us, O God of Hosts, let your face shine, that we may be saved.” (Psalm 80:7)

The Big Bang and inflation is in the news. I thought about how distant physics and astronomy are from biology and the origin of life and thought and love. Then I thought of the intellectual universe. “Let your face shine on us, [O God of Hosts,] that we may be saved.”

Plato thought of God as an invisible intellectual sun, whose goodness, truth, and beauty, as the form of forms, is the consciousness out of which the physical universe flows. (I’m merging Plato, who spoke of copies, with Plotinus who spoke of emanations.) Thus Plato helps us conceive the face of God shining on us, much like the physical sun, around which our planet revolves, and the Hosts are all the stars.
