IMPLICATIONS AND SUGGESTIVE CLUES

Continuing a look at the origin of reality...largely inspired and derived from George F.R. Ellis' brilliant brief book, BEFORE THE BEGINNING.  He is NOT responsible, though, for the liberties I've taken with his logic or how I've chosen to illustrate it. Kenosis--a Greek term, used in theology, the doctrine that Christ relinquished His divine attributes so as to experience human suffering.  It literally means an emptying, a draining out in Greek.
