Greetings dear Ray,

Perhaps you just had to create this beautful little piece which I quoted.

It makes me think of many things. One of them is that I believe in a
Creator (the original Master) who had begun with Creation and is still
keeping up with it. When I am doing natural science (in contrast to
cultural science), I view my work very much in the sense you have
described above. I try to translate in human terms what humans never

I write "and is still keeping up with it" because I firmly believe that
the laws of nature cannot do their job without the Creator. It is when I
am alone in a desert that I perceive this "and is still keeping up with
it" best.

With care and best wishes,
