Abstract

The God of cosmic power needs to be severed from the God of cosmic value. The former is the underlying unified pattern physical law inherent in the physical universe. The latter is what is of most value, actually and potentially, in human life, and in sentient life more generally. Having cut the traditional God in two in this way, the problem then becomes to put the two halves together again - so that human life of value may flourish in the physical universe. This is our fundamental problem - conceptual, theoretical and practical.
