Human history shows that while pluralism and tolerance are
absolutely necessary, the over arching principles and values cannot be sustainable if everything remains relative. There have to be absolute, permanent values at the core around which a flexible structure can be built which can adapt to varying and developing circumstances, something like the soft tissue growing around a skeletal framework of the human body. Increasingly globalised “One Earth” now demands this framework for it to prosper, or even survive. This cannot come from bottoms up human effort; it can only come from top down Creator’s guidance. Almost by definition, we cannot expect to fully comprehend the Creator of infinite capabilities. The only way, the way of science is to look for clues, to amass evidence and collect facts, and then let those be taken to their logical conclusion. This is the approach I have tried to follow in my search. Since time was of the essence, I came to the conclusion that the best way forward would be to make the results of my explorations to date, available to fellow searchers, in the hopes that they will be able to not only benefit from this work but will add, refine, develop and improve this search further. The task is overwhelming for any single person, and as holds for most human efforts, it is best handled collectively, in the fashion of a think tank.
