But before we seek that salvation, we must first admit to ourselves, we have a serious problem. It becomes a touch like the proverbial alcoholic, or drug abuser: We must admit we need direction, and salvation from above, just as the alcholoic or drug abuser does from society. Yet as no individual or group is capable of achieving this task to unite our planet, we need God. God maybe the single most important factor for our survival: We either embrace the inevitable by extending our ambitions to a productive search, or watch ourselves slip precariously towards the abyss. The choice is ours. And only our own denial and lack of faith stands in our way.
We have nothing to lose, but everything to gain.
If science does embark, on o ur behalf, a search to establish God within the greater equation, we might just one day find that salvation; we may even begin to like ourselves, understand life has more meaning than just grabbing what we can, and produce the society we all desire: A place where we don't shoot people because they knock on our front door, a place where kids are safe and mutual respect is guaranteed, where the hungry are fed, and drugs are only used productively to treat the sick.
And I know some would argue, it no more than a pipe-dream, one last desperate bid to discover something, anything because we live in a shabby world, and personally I could not agree more.
But in saying that, is there really a better solution? Has someone really developed a panacea and not told the rest of us, or as usual, are we expected to keep our mouths shut, sit in a corner and just be thankful for what we are given? If that is the case, then heaven help us all because no one else will.
When we said originally, that we have lost the power of wisdom, perhaps we never realised just how accurate the statement was. We could wait for relative politicians to come bounding to the rescue, employ some self righteous lobby group or pressure group and hope for the best. But at the end of the day, as unpalatable as it might seem, there is only one strategic factor that makes the entire human race quake in its boots: God!
It makes not one jot of difference whether you are a pauper or a king, a president or pleb, in God's eyes we are all mortal, of flesh and blood and subservient in the greater scheme of things to come.
So how do we make contact with God?
We first need commitment, and then recognition from a wider, more respected body. We need science and politicians to literally wake up and realise their attempts at world order are no more than feeble gestures, mere bullets against the lightning. And if that happened, and we managed to convince a very sceptic, very atheist society the rewards could be fantastic. We might slowly put together a thesis with as much credibility as S.E.T.I itself.
And once that happens, we would employ large Telescopes as we said to scour our heavens in a methodical search. From across the globe we would extend a discreet desire and ask one small favour, that most grand of all requests: An audience with The Lord Almighty.
Yet, as to how it would communicate with us could be open to speculation, although I do not particularly think it in some common language. If we even by chance located a large residual pocket of energy beyond these mortal realms, we might be capable of provoking it into a response. If we pushed forwards into space, a large jolt of energy, and awoke God from his lair, we might stir him into some logical response. But just what that response would be, might also be speculative. We have to remember, although theologians pontificate about the virtues of God and his mighty kingdom, is does not necessarily mean we automatically become favoured.
To locate, and then provoke a residual pocket of energy, without any prior knowledge to its desires could prove the greatest act of folly mankind has ever pursued. But why should that stop him? We're noted for our acts of folly, one more will not make that much difference, or will it?
This one could be so monumental it might just eradicate us completely. Suppose we discovered that energy field, pointed a huge transmitter dish in its general direction, and sent a bolt of roar energy to tempt it. Then imagine it registered, and energy contacted energy, a signal was identified and a response indicated.
Suddenly, it began to move, to calculate the source. energy began to follow from its signature in the universal ether, a trail, all the way back to the point of source. And here we remain, awe inspired by its power.
Distortions in around planet earth's electromagnetic field are felt, and we wait for this exhibition of God's awesome power. A blinding blue flash ignites the sky, scorches the Earth and fries everything insight with its mighty power. It waits our response. Another jolt of fusion energy vaporises our planet, and with no response, it moves cautiously on, its journey through space still uncertain, never ending, and like a small child who curiously sought the imprisonment of a delicate, beautiful butterfly we became resigned to oblivion.
One day we may possess the power to speak with God, but before we do, we should remember God may just respond. Perhaps before we actually tempt such fate we should think again. Just maybe we should let God sleep, lay dormant in his mighty kingdom - and prey to God, he allows us to lay dormant in ours.
But mankind is not of that ilk. When man finds an idea, man will pursue it. I personally think we will discover God one day. Maybe it will not be as we imagined, but it will be God nonetheless.

Below is a list of chapters for the Metaphysics Anthology. The book itself is designed as abit of fun! One man thinking out loud. You should not see it as science, merely enjoy the imagination of the human mind in full swing.
